Say, what?

A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

OVER THE LINE

A Swedish man is in hot water after he told U.S. authorities that his son-in-law had links to al-Qaida.


The 52-year-old father-in-law, who was not named, has been charged with defamation after he sent an e-mail to the FBI saying his son-in-law "likely has links to the Muslim terror organization al-Qaida's network in Sweden."

The false warning spoiled a business trip to the U.S. for the son-in-law, who was stopped at a Florida airport and questioned for 11 hours before being sent back on a plane to Sweden.

The father-in-law admitted to having sent the e-mail after it was traced to his home computer. He reportedly told police he sent the e-mail in anger after a dispute with his son-in-law, who was divorcing his daughter.

The man said he did not expect such a "paranoid reaction" from U.S. authorities.
He was charged with grave defamation and could face up to two years in prison if convicted.

Wow, now that's creative hateful revenge at its best.
What happened to just having a bunch of pizzas sent over to his house?

Explicit language. Viewer discretion advised
