Not a “Trusted Traveler”: Yongda Huang Harris


Boston Resident, Returning From Japan, Detained

Mr. Harris

Suit case contents:

“Knives, body bags, a hatchet, a collapsible baton, a biohazard suit, a full-face respirator, billy clubs, handcuffs, leg irons and a device to repel dogs” (NYT)

(and a smoke grenade.)

Yongda, a US citizen, was also wearing a bullet-proof vest and flame resistant pants.

In a bizarre twist to an already odd story, Mr. Harris has retained Steven Seiden who also is representing Mark Basseley Youssef, the man responsible for the recent anti-Islam and violence producing video.

A spokesperson for Attorney Williams described Harris as,”very intelligent, earning A’s in high school and college calculus.”

Well then, that explains it.
