Tone-deaf on security
Tone-deaf on security: "The singer, who changed his name to Yusuf Islam after converting to Islam in the 1970s, was pulled off a London-to-Washington flight on Tuesday after security officials discovered that he was on a terrorist watch list. This was particularly surprising to Mr. Islam because just last May, he was in Washington meeting with officials from the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives about philanthropy. Nobody said anything about a terrorist list."
