U.S. Air Force vet to attempt flight to Qatar

Published: February 22, 2013

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma Muslim organization says U.S. Air Force veteran Saadiq Long will once again try to board a flight to his home in Qatar.

Adam Soltani — the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations Oklahoma chapter — says Long will try to board a Saturday morning flight at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City.

Long last attempted to board a flight home Feb. 7. Officers with the U.S. Transportation Security Administration told him he couldn't board — but did not offer a specific reason.

Long also had difficulty entering the U.S. last year.

He's been in Oklahoma visiting his ill mother and other relatives and says he suspects he's on the FBI's no-fly list but has not been told whether that's true or why.
