UPDATED: A Qatari diplomat was on his way to an official visit with an imprisoned al Qaeda sleeper agent when he touched off a bomb scare by slipping into an airline bathroom for a smoke, officials said Thursday.
The Patriot Act, passed 1½ months after al Qaeda's attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, gave the attorney general the authority to detain aliens suspected of terrorism for up to seven days before charging them or seeking their deportation. But according to the Bush administration, this provision was unnecessary.
