Don’t Piss Off Your In-Laws or the FBI

(from Yahoo News)

When the husband refused to stay home, his father-in-law wrote an email to the FBI saying the son-in-law had links to al-Qaeda in Sweden and that he was travelling to the US to meet his contacts.

He provided information on the flight number and date of arrival in the US.

The son-in-law was arrested upon landing in Florida. He was placed in handcuffs, interrogated and placed in a cell for 11 hours before being put on a flight back to Europe, the paper said.

The FBI contacted Swedish intelligence agency Saepo, which discovered that the email tipping off the FBI had been sent from the father-in-law’s computer.

The father-in-law has been charged with aggravated libel.

  1. I read about this, it sounds like the father-in-law was just engaged in pure jackassery. His defense was “I didn’t think the US Government would be stupid enough to believe me and actually act on it” or something to that effect.

    Has he not been paying attention to anything our government has done for the past 7 years?!?
