Atif Irfan said federal authorities removed eight members of his extended family and a friend after passengers heard them discussing the safest place to sit and misconstrued the nature of the conversation.

Irfan, a U.S. citizen and tax attorney, said he was "impressed with the professionalism" of the FBI agents who questioned him, but said he felt mistreated when the airline refused to book the family for a later flight.


meanwhile back in the USA...

I hope Iranian Americans understand that they are also "Muslim families" regardless of their actual religious beliefs.

Brain washing has worked here

This shows you that the efforts of the outgoing criminal Adminstrattion to brain wash the people in this Country has been successful.

This was the plan for the control of people in this Country to accomplish their evil goals in the Middle East, from day one that they took over. 

Just take a look at what they have done to the Air Ports in this Country. One look would make you cry. They are making you wait in long lines, take your shoes, jackets, pants, etc. off, almost total strip by a bunch of poor people who don't even know what they are/should be looking for .

In the last 8 year I have tried my best to avoid the Air Ports. They used to be fun, going to see your loved ones off or in. You cannot do that anymore. You just drop them off outside and pick them up outside the Terminals.

This is just one example how they have screwed people here, keeping them too busy and scared to ask questions about their criminal actions around the World.

I am not sure how much things will change with the change in the Administration. The damage has been so severe that it would take 40-50 years to repair.

Just like what the criminal in Iran have done to people in the last 30 years.
