He Was A Target Of The Taliban So Why Is He In U.S. Custody?

A Pakistani reporter who was hired by the Voice of America to work with the network here has been detained by immigration officials at Dulles International Airport.

What is so curious about this case is that, not only does Rahman Bunairee have a visa and a job, but the Taliban tried to kill him - blowing up his house in July while he was stringing for the VOA there.

Unless there's something else going on here that hasn't been revealed, this would seem to be a case of our government officials stopping the wrong people from coming into the nation. We hear too many reports of innocent, law abiding people who have been detained. Yet there's been case after case of people who have come into the United States after training with al Qaeda abroad. Somehow they make it through immigration.
