Swell. Our military says the reason the eldest son of the most powerful Shiite politician in Iraq was detained for hours today was because he was returning from Iran using an expired passport, which unfortunately appears to be a lie.
Oh, and to make matters worse, while we were at it, our forces allegedly beat his guards. It's good to see what a visit with the president at the White House will get you.
