Rather dressy, actually.
He finally flew, but with another T-Shirt, one purchased by a JetBlue employee.
Now, he's suing the Department of Homeland Security.
News reports were a trifle vague as to just who this Raed Jarrar is, so I did a little checking: mostly with Google. Mr. Raed Jarrar
- Wrote "An Illegal War Degenerates / Iraq: Raped" a month before the T-shirt incident
- Is the Iraq Project Director for Global Exchange (as of earlier today, August 13, 2007)
- Authors In The Middle / Raed Jarrar's Blog.
Why should we care? Considering the ACLU's involvement in his lawsuit, I don't think we've heard the last of his claim to victimhood. And, this is another instance of someone, intentionally or not, creating a situation which could reasonably discourage people from reporting a terrorist who was intent on carrying out a violent mission.
There's more about Mr. Jarrar and his amazing T-shirt at "T-Shirt Story 1: 'I Got Rights!'" and "T-Shirt Story 2: Civil Rights vs Common Sense."
