DHS as Public Diplomat

From Jason:

Iceland Have you seen this dangerous woman? She came into JFK airport a week ago, and was shackled, jailed, and questioned for two days based on a past record. A record of menace… she overstayed her US visa more than 10 years ago. Meet… Erla Osk Arnardottir Lillendahl of Iceland.

Lillendahl, 33, had planned to shop and sightsee with friends, but endured instead what she has claimed was the most humiliating experience of her life.

She contended she was interrogated at JFK airport for two days, during which she was not allowed to call relatives. She said she was denied food and drink for part of the time, and was photographed and fingerprinted.

On Monday, Lillendahl claimed, her hands and feet were chained and she was moved to a prison in New Jersey, where she was kept in a cell, interrogated further and denied access to a phone.

She was deported Tuesday, she told reporters and wrote on her Internet blog.

Her story can be found, translated into English, at this blog site. The only thing I can think of is that when she said, "I am from Iceland," that the idiots at JFK thought she said "I am from Islam." The Icelandic government is demanding an apology, and frankly, she deserves one.
