In this post 9/11 world, if you saw someone taking pictures of an important structure from multiple angles, and constantly making notes about it, wouldnt you be a little bit concerned? I would be.
Ian Spiers has put together a long rant about how he refused to show ID while photographing important structures, and is subsequently pissed that Homeland Security agents were called on him. He proceeds to blame the whole thing on racial profiling and the PATRIOT act.
He has sent his story to Michael Moore, so you can look forward to another non-factual political propaganda (not documentary) film in a few months. Get thee to France or Germany, Mr. Spiers. And take Michael Moore with you.
