US apologizes to Muslim scholar for denying entry Jul 19, 2005 7:10 pm By Robert Spencer Zaki Badawi update: the British Muslim cleric can come in after all. (Thanks to Skeetstreet for the link.) This is yet another example of the anti-terror follies I noted some time ago. If they had nothing on Badawi, they shouldn’t have flagged him in the first place. If they did, they shouldn’t be letting him in now. But I notice that Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam and Tariq Ramadan, both also barred from the USA, have not received apologies and new visas.
