Frisking Fisk

Unbelievable.
U.S. immigration officials refused Tuesday to allow Robert Fisk, longtime Middle East correspondent for the London newspaper, The Independent, to board a plane from Toronto to Denver. Fisk was on his way to Santa Fe for a sold-out appearance in the Lannan Foundation’s readings-and-conversations series Wednesday night.

According to Christie Mazuera Davis, a Lannan program officer, Fisk was told that his papers were not in order.
Actually, not so unbelievable with this White House but how absolutely brazen and ridiculously petty. It's so clearly an attempt to punish him for his work that's so critical of the administration and it's ill-fated Iraq policy.

Hmmm...it's Frist they should be worried about, not Fisk.
