January 9 Jakadrien Turner update

Jakadrien Turner has returned to the United States, and, though it's now clear that the mistaken deportation was entirely her fault (she fooled her own criminal defense attorney; waived the right to an attorney and to contest her deportation hearing; more recent photos show someone who could readily pass for 21 in the absence of contrary information; and had her fake identity verified after she had an interview with Colombian diplomatic officials who gave her a passport), her family is already promising to sue. There would be some poetic justice if the government responds to any such suit with the threat of criminal sanctions. Our foresightful contrarian coverage was noticed by the Christian Science Monitor and the TM Daily Post blog.
