Given the Boston Marathon bombers, that is a tough sell.
@Say No,And 9/11, and the shoe bomber, and the underwear bomber, and
the fort hood, and the Portland Christmas Tree event. They SHOULD
face more scrutiny.I know I sure wish we had scrutinized the Boston
bombers and the other terrorists I mentioned more than we did.
Well, what do you know. A government agency doing something right for change.
@say no and Chrisand the movie theater shootings in Denver and the
school shooting in Connecticut and Columbine shootings and the Oklahoma
bombings, the guy that crashed his plane into an IRS building, and oh wait those
were nice white american christian men.
Let's see - I seem to remember some Constitutional prohibition against
things like this - oh, yeah! The First Amendment that was it!Interesting to see posts from commenters who in other threads are complaint

@Sorry Charlie!What evidence do you have they were nice Christian
men?Their actions clearly demonstrate they were not.And

And discrimination is alive and well on the DesNews comment boards.
Should we actually profile for terrorists or waste our time and resources
profiling everyone, what is more useful?I suggest we
follow EL AL's example and profile for terrorists, they are the safest
airlines in the world, even have metal forks and knives on their airline. and is a white Norwegian Christian or a Muslim more likely to be a
terrorist, and cause harm to american citizens, the answer is obvious.When was last time a non-muslim foreigner committed a terrorist act in the
US?Do the obvious and common sense thing.Political
correctness came from communism, to enforce politically correct (communist)
thought. It is no good, we must eschew it.
