Retraction: Qatar back-paddle

I have to admit; I jumped the gun on the news regarding Qatar. Apparently, they were merely playing hard-ball with certain countries regarding visa procedures.

An infamous incident happened a few weeks or so ago, when a Qatari diplomat on board a flight in the USA was caught smoking in the bathroom. Upon questioning, he made some sort of reference to terrorism, as he had smuggled a lighter on board, and was detained for questioning.

Its a federal offence to joke on such matters.

Shame. For the article.
