American Citizen's Flight Home Blocked, FBI Criticized

February 08, 2012 (1 min read)

"A Muslim civil rights organization has asked the U.S. Justice Department to investigate the Portland office of the FBI for coercion and intimidation against Muslims trying to fly home to Oregon from abroad.   The Council on American-Islamic Relations said the FBI blocked Mustafa Elogbi and Jamal Tarhuni from flying back to the Portland area last month from Libya. The two men, both naturalized U.S. citizens and Oregon residents for more than 30 years, had visited Libya after the ouster of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi." - Oregonian, Feb. 7, 2012.
