bye bye free speech in US?

Although this isn't technically a "speech" issue, I just discovered
that my pending USDA permit to import dead insect specimens has a ban
on importations from certain countries, such as Cuba, North Korea,
Iran, Iraq and Libya.  I have no idea how long this particular rule
has been in effect, but I fail to see how a few dead bees from Iraq
might pose a threat to the US' national interests.
