    Default Tim Pat Coogan Refused US Visa

    Rather a strange decision:

    Tim Pat Coogan book tour canceled after visa refusal | Irish News and Politics spanning the US, Ireland and the World | IrishCentral

    TPC can hardly be described as a threat to US security -so has anybody any idea why he has been refused entry to the USA?

    strange decision.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Apparently it is one of a number Dublin Embassy visa decisions which 'have caused concern' among the Irish government. I wonder is there a policy behind it?

    The Americans started to go paranoid on visa applications after 911.

    Seems like a pretty bizarre decision - a 77 year old man is more harm to himself travelling long haul.
    it’s the continuing series of small tragedies, that send a man to the, madhouse

    I'd say they didn't like the look of his eyebrows.
