The Bush Administration Playing Politics? That'd be a First!

Could the Bush administration be using the Department of Homeland Security to silence criticism of President Bush?

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln thinks so. And they're suing over it.

The University hired Waskar Ari of Bolivia to teach Latin American History. But the DHS won't let him in the country.

Seems Professor Ari was mistakenly identified as a supporter of Bolivian president Evo Morales -- a harsh critic of President Bush. Professor Ari was hired two years ago -- but has been kept out of the country all this time.

UNL filed a lawsuit last week demanding DHS consider Professor Ari's appeal. The feds have 60 days to file a response. (Lincoln Journal Star)
