A Canadian passes through Boston. I was pulled aside at immigration and taken to another area. Two hours later, some officials came and told me this was regular procedure -- they took my fingerprints and photographs. ... [A] man from the [US Immigration and Naturalization Service] came in and told me they wanted me to volunteer to go to Syria. I said no way. I said I wanted to go home to Canada or be sent back to Switzerland. He said to me, "you are a special interest." They asked me to sign a form. They would not let me read it, but I just signed it. I was exhausted and confused and disoriented. ... [W]e flew to Portland, to Rome, and then to Amman, Jordan. ... It was like a grave. It had no light. It was three feet wide. It was six feet deep. It was seven feet high. ... I spent 10 months, and 10 days inside that grave.
