Thanks, Security Theater!
In the midst of one of the biggest catastrophes in Pakistani history, it’s a good thing that draconian airport security rules are in place to treat key allies as wogs:
The Pakistani military canceled a visit by a delegation of its officers to the United States to protest what the military called the group’s mistreatment by security staff at Washington’s Dulles International Airport, a spokesman for the military said Wednesday.
Either the Obama administration’s post-Abdulmutallab ethnic-profiling “emergency” rules haven’t really been scrapped or the so-called “intelligence-based” airport security system supposedly in placed is dumb enough to snare visiting dignitaries. And this is at Dulles, an airport that services visiting dignitaries on a constant basis.
