Three-month-old baby Questioned by US Embassy Over ‘Terror Ties’; Baby Refused to Talk, But Remained Calm

Why did I just laugh completely out loud when reading this ? This is not a lie, a wrong answer on a US visa form led to a three-month-old being ‘questioned’ over ‘terror activities’..

 

According to The DailyMail.com:

A 3-month-old was ‘questioned’ by officials at the American embassy in London after his grandfather accidentally described him as a terrorist in a US visa form. Harvey Kenyon-Cairns was all set to fly to Florida for his first holiday with his family when he was summoned to the United States embassy. According to The Guardian, the baby’s grandfather, Paul Kenyon, quickly realized he had made a mistake while filling out a visa form on his behalf that led to the bizarre situation. The family was forced to make a 10-hour round-trip journey from their home in Poynton, Cheshire, to the US embassy in London so officials could interview young Harvey.

“I couldn’t believe that they couldn’t see it was a genuine mistake and that a three-month-old baby would be no harm to anyone,” his grandfather told The Guardian.

“I went down with him and his mum and took him in for the interview, but he can’t even speak as he’s so young,” the Daily Mail quoted Mr Kenyon saying.

“Baby Harvey was good as gold for the interview and never cried once. I thought about taking him along in an orange jumpsuit, but thought better of it,” said Mr Kenyon. “They didn’t appear to have a sense of humour over it at all and couldn’t see the funny side.

“He’s obviously never engaged in genocide, or espionage, but he has sabotaged quite a few nappies in his time, though I didn’t tell them that at the US embassy.”
