US Citizen Detained & Denied Counsel

Quote:
Gulet Mohamed was detained and interrogated by the FBI without counsel for more than two hours, Mother Jones reports. Mohamed was returning from Kuwait, where the US teenager was held for a month and beaten and interrogated, he says. When he landed in Dulles International Airport, where his family waited anxiously, the FBI ignored his pleas for a lawyer and proceeded to intimidate and interrogate him. A call from a customs official to his lawyer, Gadeir Abbas, yielded no respite; Abbas requested to represent him but the official told him to call the FBI's 800 number and hung up the phone.

After finally being released to his family, he left in a cab without answering questions about the interrogations, under advisory from his lawyer. Mohamed has not been charged of a crime and maintains his innocence. He was reportedly detained in Kuwait because he traveled to Yemen and Somalia in 2009 to visit family and learn Arabic.

Looks like the FBI-man in charge dropped the ball here, he needs to be reprimanded.

so on a side note, is an interrogation acceptable for anyone? would it be okay if we interrogated Osama Bin Laden without counsel?

Osama doesn't appear to be a US citizen.

on a side note, I guess if you go that path you have two choices:

a)by accepting interrogation and withdrawal of rights for a US citizen, you must not like the concept of rights, and would personally be the subject of a government interrogation (without your lawyer, infact with no knowledge of what's going to happen to you) through mere suspicion

b) you can accept interrogation of people named Mohammed simply because they're suspects named "Mohammed", and afterwards you can call it "racial profiling" or something like that, because it sounds better than "virulent racism"


Topcat chose b by the way, what do you pick?
