I don't know what the point of the original post was. Mistakes were make, admited, and apologized and compensated for. It's unfortunate that it happened, but I don't see how him being Muslim had to do with miss-identifying his fingerprints.
Yes, the were made but they were not admitted.
Quote from the article, "The government did not admit liability or fault but issued a formal apology to Mayfield as part of the settlement, said Justice Department spokeswoman Tasia Scolinos."
I think it was that if he wasn't a successfull muslims that could possibly be "supporting terroist" then he would not have been under servlience in the first place.
Edit: and yes my free thinking leads me to believe that the Patriot Act is bad.
