So much for Freedom of Speech

The USA talks a lot about freedom and democracy - and implementing its system of freedom in other parts of the world. But when it comes to implementing these fine principles at home, there seem to be some serious difficulties. This is what BBC wrote today:

Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams missed a St Patrick's Day event in the US after being delayed at a Washington airport for "secondary screening".
He had been invited by Congressman Brian Higgins to speak in Buffalo.
Mr Higgins told the audience Mr Adams was absent because his name was on a "terror watch list", but Homeland Security officials would not comment.

Gerry Adams seems to be too much for "American security". This nice and quiet Irishman has helped to bring about peace and democracy in Northern Ireland after decades of turmoil and civil strife.
