    Nigeria criticises 'unfair' US air passenger screening

    Link
    BBC News - Nigeria criticises 'unfair' US air passenger screening

    Having worked in Nigeria for a number of years and having used the various Airports within that country, I can state with absolute certainty that by placing 1000 Naira in ones passport before handing it over to the officer, one could get almost anything through a checkpoint.
    Nigeria is probably one of the most corrupt nations in the world.

    Poor babies, are they having a harder time getting their terrorists onboard?

    How dare you say one bad word against this lovely country or pure people. They have awarded me no less than 20 million dollars in lotto winnings, abandoned bank accounts in just this past year.

    If they were corrupt they wouldn't have notified me about winning contests I never entered or inheriting money from relatives that don't exist, They would have kept it for them selves.

    Do please let us know when you actually receive these monies and in the meantime perhaps you may feel generous enough to contribute to the running of this website, I feel sure that any of the mods will be able to let you know how to contribute.

    Incidentally the scam you are evidently involved with is numbered a '419' this is the number assigned to these scams under the Nigerian System of Law.

    Isn't requiring increased security procedures for people coming from certain countries a form of racial profiling?

    Who would have thought that The Obama would support such thiings.

    It's nation of origin profiling. that's different. It's like saying that all Norwegians smell of lutkfisk.

    Presuming that people from Syria (et al) are more likely to commit acts of terrorism and therefore require extra 'attention' from the authorities is practically different from presuming that Arab-looking and -speaking Muslims are more likely to commit acts of terrorism and therefore requre extra 'attention' from the authorities....in what way?
