Yeah this article is believable. When I few back from iran (well actually from Frankfurt) the homeland guy was VERY rude. There were a couple of
people in front of me, and one guy questioning them (from middle eastern countries) and he was so rude to them. He was a nasty little tyrant that
found the perfect job abusing people who had to take it and say they liked it, else they would have wasted their money flying over here.
He started giving me attitude too, asking me why I was there, even asked if I visited mosques and I got mad (long flight, cranky traveler syndrome) .
When he asked me why I seemed "hostile" that was it, I got out the soapbox and started ranting "I am an American citizen and I do NOT appreciate
being..." and that was it. He waved me past. He was horrid, but what was he going to do to me? Send me back on the plan to Germany? The Germans
wouldn't have gone for that idea.
Really, extremely rude, extremely bad behavior was displayed. Disgusting and shameful.
(Edit of course if the Iranian customs people had been jerks I would have kissed up to them big time, as it was an expensive ticket and they could
have bounced me out in a heartbeat).
