***The following is my translation., I am not a natice speaker but this is the jist***

Rafael Bielsa
American secutity agents interrogated Aregntinian Chancellor in airport:

BUENOS AIRES, January 15.- El Argentine newspaper Clarín informed today that the chancellor trasandino, Rafael Bielsa, was "interrogated several hours by agents in charge of security at MIA".
The paper also mentioned attempts to downplay the sistuiation that affected Bielsa, who is acting this month as the chair of the UN Security Council. To that end, the Chancellor's spokesman, Oscar Feito, denied the detention of the Chancellor, but he aknowledged that "when we got of the plane in Miami, a man identified himself as a member of secuirity to us , we don't know exactly who he is, wanted to know the nature of a conversation we had with the crew in New York. This took 8 minutes. We left an that was all".

Miami airport has been the seen of more than one diplomatic incident due to zealous security. Remember the case last April with the wife of del prince Felipe de Borbón, Letizia Ortiz.

The minister was detained with his entourage. The US Gov't regrets the incident. According to the chancellor, the episode only lasted 8 minutes.


Ana Baron. WASHINGTON CORRESPONDANT

The US State Dept regreted last night thhe incident that happened to chancellor Rafael Bielsa in MIA, where he was interrogated several hours during a stopver from NY to Haiti.

"We regret the uneccecary inconvenience to the minister and his delegation. We are investigating the incident", said a State Dept. representative last night. The chancellor had diplomatic imunity but he was alsso the head of the UN Security Council.

Everybdy on both sides tried to downplay the incident...

And the discussion of said event on A.net:

I presume AA has an opening in their F/A ranks today?

Paranoid Idiots!
