The Globe and Mail
has a lengthy story about Ahmad El Maati
, a truck driver crossing the border into the United States who happened to carry an out-dated,m publicly available map of the government building complex in Ottawa known as Tunney’s Pasture. The map sparked border guards’ interest in August 2001 and resulted in him being questioned and interrogated by U. S., Syrian and Egytian authorities. Sady, the truck he was driving at the time wasn’t his usual truck and he had hardly been to Ottawa.
