    I find the criteria you jump for first nothing short of useless.
    Ok, sure. I don't have a problem with that, either. Those aren't on the spot, appearance based clues, but that's a good idea.

    How about we look for people from majority Islamic countries, with Islamic names, getting on American flights who may have a one way ticket and no luggage?

    Or, someone who fits that profile, has a Pakistani, Jordanian, Saudi Arabian, etc. passport and is flying from New York to Boston?

    There are literally thousands of common sense clues that people could look for.

    How pathetic they let this man even enter the United States. I have an aunt from Canada who tried coming down here for my brother's wedding. She's 62 years old and was detained for 8 hours by US Customs and Border Protection before they decided to blacklist her name.

    Why? Because she went to Saudi Arabia for Hajj pilgrimmage and then Jordan to bury her father almost a year ago.

    Which is why I said - 'pathetic'.

    A 62 year old Canadian woman in a wheelchair is more of a threat than an adult male where intelligence knows of his religious extremism.

    Only in America.

    The TSA is pulling old white ladies in wheel chairs out of line and searching them so as to appear to be fair. That is BS. Since you seem to have a problem with America maybe you should consider one with less freedom such as Saudi Arabia, Yeman, Somolia, Iran, or Pakistan.

    That goes to expose the problems with the system, that I've already mentioned.

    They were driving from Canada towards Detroit at the time. There entire luggage was searched (only contained clothes, jewelry, and other living essentials).

    And where did you get that she was white?

    Am I not allowed criticize my country's actions? Instead I should live somewhere else? Typical right-wing response.

    I never said you should live somewhere else. I said you should consider a country with less freedom (think about those countries and there lack of freedom compared to the USA). And I wasn't refering to your aunt when I brought up TSA searches at airports. I was simply pointing out how political correctness determines how the TSA operates.

    So by criticizing my country's actions you think I should consider a country with less freedom. Typical right-wing response.

    The TSA had nothing to do with what I was talking about. I was referring to the CBP. Obviously political correctness has no bearing in the way the CBP operates.

    So because the morons in charge of running this program are too stupid to do their job, you think the solution is to give them more power and pretend like that will solve the problem?

    Typical big-government liberal response.
