Muslim U.S. Air Force Veteran Barred From Flight
Saadiq Long is trying to go back home to Qatar after visiting his sick mother in Oklahoma.
Long, an American citizen, told The Associated Press he attempted to board a Delta flight at Will Rogers World Airport but was denied a boarding pass.
“I think about three police officers arrived after that,” Long said. “It was very, very strange, by the way, and very intimidating.”
…Long said he plans to stay in Oklahoma City until the FBI instructs him on what he can do to fly. He said he needs to get back soon to support his family.
“Two months and they still can’t tell me why I can’t fly,” he said. “Of course, I’m willing to go through whatever it takes.”
