Asylum-Seeker Turned Away Thanks to Wikipedia

From the "You've got to be kidding me file:" A woman's asylum petition was rejected by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security after they consulted Wikipedia and found that a document she possessed called a Laissez-passer (French for "let pass") was not adequate to prove her identity. Lamilem Badasa was subsequently deported back to Ethiopia.

A US Circuit Court overturned a ruling by the Board of Immigration that said it was okay for the DHS to use a user-generated-and-edited web site to determine threats.

This just in: The Department of Homeland Security has outfitted all of their outposts with Apple IIes, and shiny, new rotary pencil sharpeners in an effort to keep up with changing trends in computing and communications.
