    I don't know, what's it sound like. This is CNN mind you.

    Call me a realist, but when women and kids start blowing themselves up as suicide bombers, I'll be first in line to make sure they're profiled too.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    They already are. People in this thread or the other TSA thread have linked to cases of 8 year old suicide bombers. If you start profiling one group, and ignoring the rest, terrorists will just use another group. It's not that hard. There are white radicalized Muslims as well mind you.

    Going one further...when has that even HAPPENED on a flight originating in the US?

    Im all for the XRay machines. they are pretty fast and Im anything but self conscious about what my sillouete is going to present on an XRay. Make sure the machines dont have hard drives (and it's proven that they do) and put the screener in a concealed location...and I cant see how anyone could even care.

    Exactly. I agree with you that much, to not save images of scanned persons. Other than if someone is detected to have an illegal object, then the image should be saved and studied, but again, you really can't trust what's going on with those things and there'd need to be some serious oversight.
