In Ron Suskind's new book, Suskind describes a disturbing case in Washington, D.C., where security officials detained and interrogated Usman Khosa, a Pakistani U.S. college graduate, because he was "fiddling" with his iPod near White House gates. Officials took Khosa to an interrogation room "beneath" the White House:

He turns as a large uniformed man lunges at him. The backpack!" the man yells, pushing Usman against the Italianate gates in front of Treasury and ripping off his backpack. Another officer on a bicycle arrives from somewhere and tears the backpack open, dumping its contents on the sidewalk.
