LAX Detains British Journalist for Being a Journalist?

Quote, “I told myself it was for only one night. As it turned out, I was to spend 26 hours in detention. My crime: I had flown in earlier that day to research an innocuous freelance assignment for the Guardian, but did not have a journalist’s visa. Since September 11 2001, any traveller to the US is treated as a potential security risk.” Guardian writer Elena Lappin writes about her visit to LA and being detained by airport official as a potential threat to national security.
