Army veteran Alex Antiohos spoke by phone Friday. He got home to West Babylon, N.Y., Thursday after being detained in Iraq from Dec.
9 to 27.
Antiohos, National Guardsman Jonas March of Savannah, Ga., and Kevin Fisher of Fiji were working for a security firm in Iraq when Ministry of Defense officials rejected their paperwork and began holding them.
Antiohos said he was never charged with a crime.
He appeared Friday at a news conference with Rep. Peter King.
The Long Island Republican chairs the House Homeland Security Committee.
King says the arrests set a bad precedent and need to be explored.
