On Sunday, James O’Keefe, CEO of O’Keefe Media Group (OMG), revealed on social media that he had been placed on a “list” for extra screening during domestic flights.
According to Forbes, this is known as the “Secondary Security Screening Selection” code (SSSS). At Palm Beach International Airport, security shut down an entire passenger line while O’Keefe was going through it.
A TSA agent then instructed O’Keefe to contact the State Department in order to be removed from the list; they mentioned that his name sounded familiar.
Trying to understand the “SSSS” designations on my domestic boarding passes.
PBI shut down entire passenger line while I went through.
Agent tells “your name sounds familiar. Contact State department to get off the list.”
Is this a common? TSA agent says “once a month” at PBI. pic.twitter.com/6szoG3SGSM

It has recently been revealed that Air Marshals are quietly surveilling certain conservative citizens, including James O’Keefe, even if they were not present at the Capitol on January 6. Sonya Labosco,
Director of the Air Marshals National Council, confirmed that Air Marshals have shifted away from their traditional focus on terrorists and instead are now targeting all individuals who flew into the DC area in January 2021.
Labosco stated that these individuals are being tracked regardless of whether or not they actually visited the US Capitol.
“We’re not flying right now. The only missions that we are doing are ‘Quiet Skies’ missions and those are missions that are following the January 2021 people,” Labosco said. “So we’re either on the border for illegal immigrants or we’re following folks from January 2021. We’re not doing our regular missions where we’re out there looking for the bad guys so for now most flights you’re not gonna have Air Marshals.”
Labosco said their primary mission is to stalk every single person who flew into the DC area even if they never went to the Capitol and were never charged with any crimes.
“That means our primary mission is a little group called ‘quiet skies’ – it’s a mission called quiet skies that we’re following people that flew into the national capital region in January 2021 and they did not have to go to the Capitol or the rally and you’ve been put on a specific list that TSA has now assigned Air Marshals to follow these people who have not had any type of criminal investigation – they haven’t committed a crime, but yet three years later we are following the same individuals day in and day out,” Labosco said.
