All Things Considered, August 7, 2006 · With U.S. visas in hand, they flew into San Francisco for an alumni reunion in Silicon Valley. But for reasons that are not clear, customs officials revoked many of the visas.

U.S., Europe and Allies Agree to New Iran Plan

It's on NPR radio http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...toryId=5624488 , Apparently 80 Iranian alumni of an Silicon Valley University, among them University Professors, Chemists, Teachers and business men, had flown in for a reunion. They all underwent extensive background checks etc. before getting their Visa outside Iran. The Visa were revoked upon arrival in the US. They had the choice of being deported, and being ineligible for any future admission into the US, or to voluntarily withdraw their Visa, and take the next flight out.

Exactly, it's not racism. It's a war against Islam.

Oh, is it wrong to fight when they started it?
Is paranoid self-preservation wrong?
