Breaking: Michael Yon Arrested at Seattle Airport

Thank goodness our Homeland Security people are on the job after the EunuchBomber botched attack on Christmas Day. We certainly don’t want to have independent war correspondents passing through our airports without revealing their annual income:

Got arrested at the Seattle airport for refusing to say how much money I make. (The uniformed ones say I was not “arrested”, but they definitely handcuffed me.)

Their videos and audios should show that I was polite, but simply refused questions that had nothing to do with national security. Port authority police eventually came — they were professionals — and rescued me from the border bullies.

When they handcuffed me, I said that no country has ever treated me so badly. Not China. Not Vietnam. Not Afghanistan. Definitely not Singapore or India or Nepal or Germany, not Brunei, not Indonesia, or Malaysia, or Kuwait or Qatar or United Arab Emirates.

No county has treated me with the disrespect can that can be expected from our border bullies.

Jazz Shaw wonders what the hell is going on:

Very strange. Even if you’re into profiling, Yon would hardly fit one you’d be interested in. Of course, his passport, by now, doubtless has a list of countries stamped into it which could give an inspector pause, but that’s no excuse. Very, very strange. I expect this one will be high profile enough that you’ll see an apology coming from the government.

Unless there is more to this story, an apology would be the least owed to Yon. When an American citizen with a valid passport presents himself for travel, there should be some reasonable screening to verify identity and to determine whether there is a physical risk, ie, weapons and the like.

Why should border security be interested in Yon’s annual income?

How does that relate to national security and border protection? Unless this is an arm of the Internal Revenue Service, it doesn’t, and Yon was right to refuse to answer the question.

No, no...I was talking celebs. I mean we can't actually take a long hard look at muslims, that would be profiling and we don't do that...

Except Yon is EXACTLY the profile they are after. To hell with the radical Islamists, they want the patriotic Americans.

Incredible. Ayman Al-Zawahiri himself could try to board a plane and no one would stand in his way.

I got culled from an airline ticket line after being there early. I went from near the front to almost missing my flight. I bought a Y class ticket on military travel orders and the lady punched my boarding pass with a star punch. I wondered why she punched my pass until I realized I had been selected. The guy searching me asked if I was active duty. I told him yes and he told me I didn't have to go through this.

I almost missed my flight and I didn't even realize I was exempt from this extra security. Why didn't the attendent at the front know this? I showed military ID and travel orders. Unbelievable. Of course at 6'2 200 lbs,and a WASP, nobody could accuse them of profiling.:rolleyes:

according to his facebook page - it was CUSTOMS that harrased him. Are they HS now too? I can't keep track.
