I mean honestly, you guys bend over backwards to do everything for us from comply with our trade regulations and allow us exemptions to yours to never denying us an extradition request. You can't honestly be surprised here.

It has nothing to do with race, if he'd been Jewish and born in Iraq, same thing. If he'd been born to British parents who'd become Iraqi citizens, same thing. The issue is his citizenship of birth. It's a pretty clear security risk.
They'd do the same thing if a student was North Korean, for the same reason.
It's entirely standard practice in pretty much every single nation on the planet.
If you keep stretching like this to find reasons to post U.S. Hate topics, you're gonna pull a muscle or something...

I'm not sure I would really consider someone who has lived 13 out of 16 years of his life in Sweden more of a security threat than any other Swedish teenager. Granted, I suppose it could be argued that his parents could have some sort of negative influence on him.
Here's a tip; a voluntary placement in a private company dealing with military tech and security concerns is not comparable to immigration into a nation.

Was he raised to be a sleeper agent by his parents?
Are they being pressured by friends of the old regime who tracked them down and are threatening extended family members back in Iraq?
There's a host of possibilities, and if you're working with sensitive military tech, you don't take those chances.
Also, as to what I said about the paranoia, as has been stated in swedish newspaper, translated with google:
U.S. paranoia seen in Trollhättan
His dream was to become an engineer in the aerospace industry . And the plugs to the industrial technology program at Nils Ericsonsgymnasiet in Trollhättan prepared you for just such a profession. Training takes place namely in very close cooperation with aircraft engine manufacturer GKN Aerospace.
So it was to GKN - line 16 -year-old Hussein Radhi sought out . His dream was to become an engineer in the aerospace industry .
But the happiness was short-lived . August 21 Hussein began his training . The next day he was called to a meeting at the school.
There he was told - by representatives of both the school and GKN - that he was not welcome to attend the program .
Why ? Hussein Radhi was born in Iraq and GKN Aerospace sells products to the U.S..
Stop if you were born in Iraq
If this could Trollhättan newspaper - Elfsborg County sorts , TTELA , tell us a week.
The company regrets what happened , but explains that it has with the U.S. Export and safety to do. There is a limitation for people from some countries, including Iraq , to assimilate information on U.S. products .
For Today's Work says Mats Eriksson, IF Metall steward at GKN , it's not " super " , but that it does not have anything to choose from if you want to deliver to the Americans.
The Agency says it is incompatible with Swedish law to shut someone out from a public high school because of being born in a particular country. Schools Inspectorate says that the principle is that all Swedish citizens should have full access to the training courses organized by the public .
The war against terrorism in everyday life
In a political debate that has come to consider apprenticeships as a panacea for youth unemployment is the event in Trollhättan a reminder that it is not always easy to coordinate with school work. Working life can have rules that are completely incompatible with how we want the school to operate.
But ultimately , it is perhaps a reminder of how the world established in the war on terrorism actually looks like. In Trollhättan , we see it engages in a boy's life.
Tomorrow go Barack Obama - whose middle name happens to be Hussein - on to St. Petersburg . His namesake in Trollhättan still do not know how it will be with his high school education .
