    If you are correct, either terrorists are the stupidest people on the planet, or your security measure are a public relations show.

    Awesome though....truly awesome thinking
    Why can't terrorists arrive in the USA, or an western nation, legally?

    The Muslims have already arrived.

    Again, the bulk of conservative voters don't know that (unless they happen to see someone wearing a turban in their mostly White neighborhoods, in which case they will think he is a "mulsum")

    Most people understand that Muslims have arrived in every western democracy. Perhaps you can name anyone who doesn't know that.

    1) Yes, I don't have any doubt our security measures are largely a PR show.

    2) Why are they stupid? We have about a million visitors per year from the Middle East. Another 10 million from Asia and 500,000 from Africa, and about (edit) 80 million foreign visitors per year total. Unless we've identified a person as a threat they can travel here easily enough because we're a free country that is lenient on travel to and from here for all kinds of good reasons. And the ALERT!! said this twitter traffic was coming from around the world, and so the sympathizers could be any of those 80 million per year flying here.

    I would expect that any serious terrorist threat to the U.S. would be well financed and well planned, and I expect that they can find individuals not on the U.S. radar easily enough.

    But right wingers (esp. in the Deep South) still think they're far and few, since they haven't seen too many turbans. Turbans make conservatives go bonkers.

    That should be very clear. Muslims already living in the US have committed terrorism, or tried to. They don't need to wear black outfits or carry the ISL flag in order to murder innocent people in any western democracy. The Geneva Convention holds little interest for them.

    So terrorists are getting through your airports?

    I think we're done here

    Insinuated? Oh no it's factual to anyone who reads your posts.

    And the fact that you refer to the president of the United States by his first name makes my case.
