Operation Wha???

I just found the following on my AOL news:

LOS ANGELES (Jan. 22) - With Super Bowl Sunday just days away, federal immigration officials in San Diego have arrested ''a number'' of foreign-born residents with access to the game's venue, Qualcomm Stadium, in an unprecedented security crackdown, officials said Wednesday.

The plan, known as ''Operation Game Day,'' is part of a $9 million post-Sept. 11 anti-terrorism effort that includes beefed up security at the California-Mexico border, a no-fly zone over the stadium, military air patrols and an elaborate camera system monitoring every inch of the stadium and environs.

Arab-American groups estimated at least 36 people have been detained -- mostly Middle Eastern and Latino workers who were security guards or concession workers at the stadium.


My brief searches have not availed me of an ACTUAL url to post here, and since it's in my crappy AOL window it doesn't have a URL like a normal web page. Grr. I even searched on Reuters. Which is where it said this came from. Either way, I find it outgrageous!!! OK, I sent it to myself in an email. It looks like this:

aol://4344:3167.sbdetain.21078480.727746295

Which, when I try to put it in a regular browser, shows up in my stupid effing AOL client. If anyone can help me with this technical difficulty with displaying my lame-ass AOL news, feel free to point out what I've missed.
