    US Citizen "travel Privileges" suspended.

    Did you even know that foreign travel is a privilege and not a right for Americans? Remember the grieving Gold Star father who dared the criticise Trump? He was due to give a talk in Canada, but had to cancel as his travel privileges were being "reviewed" .. Putin would be proud.

    Trump is such a pussy. I bet he grabs himself every time he thinks of Putin.

    The only way he could have "travel restrictions" is if was a convicted felon, or he is a dual citizen, which then would depend on which passport he left the US under. If he left using his US passport, he must return on his US passport and there should be NO issues. I think he is attempting to politicize his Nationality because of his ideological stupidity.

    I'm sorry I don't believe this story. If Khan has his citizenship he would be allowed to enter Canada and leave. Re-entry should not be a problem other than maybe a couple of questions and on your way you go.
    He wouldn't know he was put on the no fly list until he showed up at the airport and tried to board. I am having trouble buying this whole story.
    I am not partisan in anyway so if a story stinks on either the D's or R's side, I call it out, and this one I am calling out. Granted there are more stories to be called out on the R side but still the D's are not above reproach.

    Biggest question mark to me is, WHO told him that his "privileges" are under review ? Why is that not reported on, and why would he not comment when asked about it all day by media outlets ?

    And what does "under review" actually mean.. did some tell him " you better do not leave the country, you might not be able to come back in" ?

    It does not sound very feasible, or legitimate, not even for those morons who under Trumpies first travel ban attempt denied GC holders and to travel into the US..

    Given hat anything is possible these days with the DHS, depending on who's sitting in front of you.. but the whole story does not ring very well at the moment, as being legitimate in the way it's reported.

    So he got questioned coming back in, so what. Why did it take 3 weeks for it to come out in the news on 2/25 when the incident happened on 2/7? I get questioned when I come back from Europe, and I'm white.

    Mr. dangermouse,

    You would have thought that those who speak the Queen's English would have competent reading comprehension skills. I mean, no where in the link does it say that Mr. Khan's travel privileges have been suspended, just a nebulous statement that they are being reviewed, whatever that means.

    He was detained for TWO HOURS! And you say "so what?" Good grief. And who cares how long it took for the news to come out? I know. It makes the creeping police state tactics look bad. Well, they should.
