You know, fitting the classic profile of the typical Islamic terrorist now wreaking havoc all over the globe in the name of Allah.

    Those cowards in charge are more concerned about bending over backwards trying not to offend Muslims than they are in protecting people and ensuring the efficiency of travel and commerce.
    The profiling goes on. It's just not spoken. Your Aunt had to be checked out, as many others, so as to appear to not profile only individuals with Muslim names.

    I'm more than willing to submit myself to questioning at the airport so that all of the Muslim named people can be checked out thoroughly without the 'appearance' of profiling.

    EDIT: My wife and I flew to Hawaii from Dallas on 5/2/01. There were signs in the airport saying that they were on high alert. I was patted down thoroughly. Did they have intelligence suggesting a plane bomber might appear in May of 2001? Spooky.

    Being slightly liberal I believe that every muslim should be doubled checked before boarding any planes. We are, after all, at war.

    One of history's greatest liberals interred the japanese in camps during world war II, Franklin Rooselvelt.

    Don't try to say that this war does not equal the second world war.

    This one is much worse and will continue to get worse unless we get rid of all of the political correctness.

    There is no room for political correctness when it comes to the safety of our citizens. If profiling hurts someones feelings then so be it.

    I can remember when most everyone was against profiling.Judging by the rasmussen poll things have drastically changed........Thank God for change......

    Your right CC I don't agree with most polls because the are usually bias or have and agenda.I can't say that for Rasmussen though..........They are usually pretty close to being right on.........

    You've also advocated pulling every soldier of Arab descent out of our military despite their status and job performance.

    What's next Navy. Are you so afraid of the "Terrrrrrists" that you are going to advocate internment camps for Arab Americans?

    Should we always do what the majority wants?

    Does that make it the right thing to do?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Totally wrong as usual but I do believe these individual should be strongly screened before entering the military...........We would not of had that tragedy at Fort Hood if that had happened.....I know that means nothing to you but talk is cheap...........

    Once again Navy....in this modern technological world, your previous posts betray you.

    Just weeks ago you were saying that anyone of Arab descent should be kicked out of the military for "security purposes".

    You were saying that regardless of whether the person had high military honors and a spotless record that they should be expelled.

    You aren't fooling anyone here....except maybe yourself.

    and if its not in agreement with the Constitution you will cry "liberal activist judges denying the will of the people".

    You are too predictable, Navy.
