Terrorism Fears Gone Too Far??

A 32-year old man was booted from his flight out of Seattle because he was overheard speaking a non-English language -- Tamil -- on his mobile phone while he waited in line, and again on the aircraft before takeoff. The language is widely spoken around the world, primarily in India, Singapore, and Sri Lanka. Snip from news report: "[The passenger] told officials that he would not speak in a foreign language on his cell phone at an airport in the future."

Don't know about you but this is just crazy. First the whole liquid explosives saga not allowing any type of hand luggage on flights, and now not being able to speak in a native language. Anti terrorism at it's best.
