Is Khizr Khan Being Prevented From Traveling? Explosive Tweet Raises More Questions Than Answers

khizr-khan

A tweet from a Senior Producer at the Canadian news organization CTV, went viral Monday after suggesting Khizr Khan, the father of a Muslim solider who was killed in Iraq, is being prevented from traveling outside the United States to Canada.

“JUST IN,” wrote Rosa Hwang. “Gold Star father Khizr Khan cancels scheduled speech in Toronto after being told his ‘travel privileges are being reviewed.'”

The tweet immediately drew suspicion since Khan is an American citizen who presumably would not need “travel privileges” to go to Canada.

Hwang posted a series of Twitter clarifications to her original post, saying that Khan told CTV that he had “no comments to make” on the matter and that the statement about “travel privileges” came from Ramsey Talks, who was organizing the event for Mr. Khan to speak at in Toronto.
