    It is you that dont understand the concept of speculation based on fact and making stuff up. I in no way made up the fact that the US government forbids and tightly controls the export of technology, that is a fact. I speculated that this might be the reason for the US "stopping Dutch installations". That my speculation was wrong does not change the fact that it was speculation based on an actual possibility.

    Now making things up is stuff like what the Birther movement does when it makes fake birth certificates... that is making things up.

    Speculate, conjecture, guess, imagine, presume, suspect, infer, surmise, assume, etc, etc.

    Call it what you will, you were still just making things up.

    They have one freaking airline and they post guards with uzis onboard. Besides, no terrorist in his right mind would try to confront an Israeli head on.

    If you'd bothered to read the article, you would have learned that that's not even remotely accurate.
    Lighten up will ya... it rhymes.

    Let's say it's a response for not allowing us to use his real name on this site.

    How lame is that?
    Cannot use the full real name of someone who has in the past used his full real name?

    Chew on that a while.

    Israel uses security profiling, among other things. However, the US could never do that because of feel-good liberals who couldn't conceive of such a thing.

    What do you mean we are not allowed to use the name of President Barack Hussein Obama? That IS his name like his opponent's name is John Sidney McCain. Why the fuss over a name?

    Considering where the airports at it shouldn’t be to hard to profile.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Interesting!

    Methinks the plot thickens.
    This is a He Said-We Said story. We'll wait to hear more.

    The story doesn't say who exactly from the U.S. 'stopped' Schiphol authorities to hold off using scanners. The Schiphol rep also doesn't say why he allowed unnamed U.S. authorities to run his airport.

    But in the U.S., the Democrats (and many Repubublicans) would never consent to the depth of profiling needed though it has proven to be so successful with the Israelis. And before anyone says anything about race, that is only a PART of the security profiling they use. I was listen to BBC on the radio on my way to work a few days ago and they had a security analyst describe in some detail the profiling procedures they use. I was very impressed.

    I wouldn’t have a problem with profiling in addition to the scanners, anyone that has a fully loaded adult diaper and wearing Arab headgear gets the full check…..by the TSA checker with the least seniority.
