I read this in a local paper:
Nicholas George, a 22 year old California college student, who says he was handcuffed and detained for five hours at Philadelphia International Airport last August because he was carrying English-Arabic flashcards. George , a senior majoring in physics and Middle Eastern studies at Pomonoa College in Claremont, now has filed a lawsuit against employeees of the Transportation Security Administration, the FBI and the philadelphia Police Department. He says he was randomly selected for extra screening as he prepared to board a flight to California. When George emptied his pockets he took out the flashcards. Authorities quickly detained him. At one point a TSA supervisor asked George if he knew who committed the 9/11 terrorist attacks, according to the lawsuit. George answered, "Osama bin Laden." "Do you know what language he spoke?" the supervisor asked. "Arabic" George answered. The supervisor then held uup the flashcards and said "Do you see why these cards are suspicious?"
Yeah..i feel safer already.
