Submission + - Tough guy 'Taliban Khan' (torontosun.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: The story of Mr. Imran Khan's questioning by the USCIS was reported Slashdot with the tag line that he was questioned due to his opposition to drones. That seems to be fabrication by Mr. Imran Khan himself. I request you to run this story in the interest of fair play so that other side of the story is heard.

"An official who observed the interrogation process told me Khan sat timidly with his head lowered and hands clasped while he received a “dressing down” about potentially violating the limitations of his visitor’s visa to the U.S.

He said there was no talk about Khan’s opposition to U.S. attack drones, as the politician later claimed after the fact.

My source, tells me the real concern was that Khan had told passport control he was coming to the U.S. to visit family and friends, without specifying his planned fundraising and political activities."

    You express an interest in "fair play" yet you title your screed (as does the Toronto Sun) "Tough Guy 'Taliban Khan'".

    You're off on the wrong foot there.

    And, the Toronto Sun, whilst I haven't had it darken my doorstep in a long time, is the paper with a "Sunshine Girl" on page 3, hardly a bastion of integrity in journalism.
