Flabbergasting indeed...

Well...this is a question in the US Visa processing form. It has a Yes or No box.

Do you seek to enter the United States to engage in export control violations, subversive or terrorist activities, or any other unlawful purpose? Are you a member or representative of a terrorist organization as currently designated by the U.S. Secretary of State? Have you ever participated in persecutions directed by the Nazi government of Germany; or have you ever participated in genocide?

I mean will anyone be dumb enough to say a yes even if their intent was the above ?..Yeah al-qaeda has some dumb heads but still..this is too much of an under estimation I say :-)

Nop...there was this not-so-bright colleague of mine who did not know the meaning of genocide and assumed it to be some kinda social event :)...

Vimmuuu,
I don't know what was the logic behind the question.Probably they thought the guy would answer truthfully ;-).i was just imagining Osama filling the form up. YES-chief operating head :P. thinking of writing a play based on this + SRK's immigration frisk, wud be a laugh riot for sure.

"Have you had symptoms of flu?
If yes, is it H1N1?"
