This was put on our tv's as though the USA had done something terribly wrong and I rather think that the guy would be keen to sue if he can find an angle.
But like al our news, nothing has been written about exactly what the man who loves publicity actually does for a living to support all his kids, wives visits to Pakistan and then afford holidays at one of the most expensive times of the year for a living?
I looked at that man on the tv and the words of the Russian Foreign Minister Mr Lavrov came immediately to mind, "If it looks like a terrorist then it's most likely it is". Sure huge assumption, but with his Brother attending one of the most suspect mosques in the USA which spawned the recent terrorist attacks there, what would any country think if he approached them with hoards of kids especially at a time when he may well have thought he could get through as people were occupied with thinking about Christmas. Is his wife happy to be left out or was she being sent back to Pakistan for some Taliban conditioning? Sorry no sympathy with that man, only for the younger kids. Terrorism costs lives and no one wants to volunteer to be some mindless moron's victim.

Look I agree the DHS had valid reason to refuse entry. Seems the eldest son had been looking at some extremist’s websites.
But its paranoia to label the whole family as terrorists and pin a attack that hasn’t happened yet on them.
What happened to innocent until proven guilty? Hell a crime hasn’t even taken place yet!
Its good to be alert. But one needs to keep a sense of perspective and balance.
Yes the DHS were right to refuse entry. But no this family are most likely not terrorists.

England has one of the highest rates of Radicalized Muslims so it would seem that the ounce of prevention is better than having to cure the eventual disease.
Proof? A cite? Or is this a general comment that you made up?
