`He was interviewed and denied admission to the United States on national security grounds,'' said Homeland Security spokesman Dennis Murphy. He said the man would be put on the first available flight out of the country Wednesday.
Care to elaborate on that? He's a national security threat? Were his papers not in order? Is he a U.S. citizen? What the hell?
Go read up on the insane ravings of this US-hating threat to civilization as we know it...here
UPDATE: Even the presumably "non-partisan" AUDIO/VIDEO REVOLUTION magazine is fired up about this. they regurgitate the same old story/bio on Islam (Stevens), but throw this bit of op-ed in at the end:
Questions about security on planes still abound. If Islam was on a terrorist watch list for whatever reason – right or wrong – how the hell was he able to board a United flight? Three years after 9/11 and just months after terrorists took out two planes in Russia, airport security is still a pathetic joke that allows terrorists easy access to $50,000,000 missiles filled with fuel and loaded with innocent people. With over 300 billion dollars a year going to fight a war that is proving to be hard to win in Iraq, one wonders what a small fraction of those funds would do to improve airport security and international intelligence?
Pretty much sums up my position. I don't know the particulars with Stevens and any connections he might have to the wrong people, it doesn't matter. The "no-fly list" is a crock. If he's got ties to terrorism, arrest him. Don't just ground him from flying. And if he's on a no-fly list, why the hell did he get to fly? They want to act like this is an example of our bad-ass DHS cracking down, but it really demonstrates what a joke our porous security is.
