Cynthia McKinney's Travel Restricted

In a complete smack of fascism and loss of any ideals of liberty, the United States government has denied Former Congresswoman of Georgia and 2008 Green Party Presidential Candidate Cynthia McKinney the ability to leave country.

According to PrisonPlanet.com, McKinney was stopped at the Atlanta airport and denied entrance to a plane bound for Damascus, Syria, where she was scheduled to give a speech on human rights at the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Her past work fighting for justice for her Atlanta consituency has gained her great fame. In addition, her advocacy for peace for Palestine and an end to Israeli restriction of Palestinian freedoms has given her great publicity. Also, her advocacy of the 9/11 Truth Movement and her questioning of the reality of events on that day have contributed much to her name.

It is unclear exactly why McKinney was denied exit from the country of which she is a citizen, but many reasons point to her existence as a political rival and alternative of the two One Party corporate system.

Before going on any trip whether you are driving it or going by another other modes of transportation, it is important to have a variety of travel maps available. The last thing anybody wants to have happen is getting lost on his or her trip. Being lost takes valuable time away from enjoying yourself if it is a pleasure trip, or takes away from working time if the trip is for business.
