Icelander Humiliated, Interrogated, Chained by Airport Security

Eva Ósk Arnardóttir, Icelander was traveling through the States:

There I was told that according to their records I had overstayed my visa by 3 weeks in 1995. … I looked at the official in disbelief and told him that I had in fact visited New York after the trip in 1995 without encountering any difficulties. … I was photographed and fingerprinted. … Then I was placed in a cubicle which looked like an operating room. Attached to the walls were 4 steel plates, probably intended to serve as bed and a toilet. … Soon thereafter I was removed from the cubicle and two armed guards placed me up against a wall. A chain was fastened around my waist and I was handcuffed to the chain. Then my legs were placed in chains. I asked for permission to make a telephone call but they refused. So secured, I was taken from the airport terminal in full sight of everybody. … I was led inside in the chains and there yet another interrogation session ensued. I was fingerprinted once again and photographed. I was made to undergo a medical examnination, I was searched and then I was placed in a jail cell. I was asked absurd questions such as: When did you have your last period? What do you believe in? Have you ever tried to commit suicide?
