If the CIA thought that executing the guerrilla would kill what he stood for, it mostly assuredly has been proved wrong. Witness the current state of politics in Latin America, not to mention the reverence this week that marked the 40th anniversary of his death.

A traveler in Australia was stopped at an airport boarding gate when the attendant saw his T-shirt, which had an image of George W. Bush and the words "World's #1 Terrorist." Allen Jasson was told the shirt was offensive and a security threat and was asked to remove it. He didn't, saying he would rather defend free speech than his airline fare.

An Iraqi architect at JFK Airport was wearing a shirt that read "We Will Not Be Silent" in Arabic and English. Security officers said it was upsetting other passengers, and said he couldn't board until he turned it inside-out or put on something else. He chose the latter. (Read his reaction after the jump) (h/t: Raw Story) This is pretty ridiculous: If security guards were worried that he was a terrorist, a new shirt wouldn't have thwarted his plot. And if they didn't suspect he was a terrorist, why can't he wear a shirt of protest?
