You are what you read?

Here's one I missed on the latest terrorist threat, readers of non-fiction.
The latest example of airline security gone insane is provided by rock star and stand-up comedian Henry Rollins, who was recently reported to the Australian government for reading a book on an aeroplane. [...]

"US rocker and writer Henry Rollins was reported to the National Security hotline during his recent Australian tour because of a book he was reading on flight to Brisbane. A furious Rollins was informed he was "nominated as a possible threat" for reading Jihad: The Rise Of Militant Islam In Central Asia."

Rollins then received a letter from the Australian government warning him not to read such books in future.
Rollin's response? That seems to about cover it.
