Several years ago, I worked for a major international airline here at Chicago's international airport and we had many passengers who connect from Paris-CDG and other European hubs to Tehran. The TSA required that anyone who shows a passport from Iran (or one of a host of other countries) be "selected" for additional screening. Everyone, including infants and the elderly bound to a wheelchair, was subjected to this increased scrutiny for no reason other than their nationality. Regardless of whether they are even American citizens, if you show an Irani passport, you are considered a threat. Terribly humiliating and dehumanizing for thousands of travelers every year who are subjected to this cruel and unusual punishment. You shouldn't be singled out for harassment by government officials just for being brown.
I am glad that our two nations are finally able to look each other in the eye and speak openly with one another. Keep up the great work on HPL Ahmed!
