According to this story, the would-be bomber was listed in a U.S. terrorism database but wasn't on the no-fly list because there was "insufficient derogatory information available".

Question: why the heck not? Why do foreigners get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to entering the United States? They have no right to enter the United States, the burden should be on them to get in and not on our law enforcement and intelligence agencies to keep them out.

Forget about reaching whatever constitutes a 'sufficient' level of derogatory information, any derogatory information should have been enough to keep this guy out.
