    I was illustrating the stunning ignorance of navys point by providing him with a counter example
    We have to recognize a threat and neutralize that threat. Going after white europeans, especially white, European females is a complete waste of time.

    Sorry, but that's reality. But, don't take my word for it. Wait until the non-profile method fails, again, only this ime a hundred, or a thousand people die. Then you'll see for yourself. Too bad that's what it's going to take to convince you.

    We should profile anyone attempting to fly as homicidal toward the planet, and ultimately the genocide of humanity.

    That don't even make any sense, dude.

    You do realize that German subs never attacked the mainland United States?

    Because I am brown skinned and my wife looks Asian, we get pulled aside every ****ing time we travel by air.

    I am a ****ing veteran!

    **** that and any attempt at profiling.

    God damn cowards let this **** happen.

    Re: Is it time to profile on airline flights?

    I was listening to some of the witnesses on CNN who boarded the plane with the terrorist. They said he was accompanied by a middle-aged, well dressed, Indian man. They also said the airport staff tried to stop the terrorist from getting on board the plane because he didn't have a passport, but the middle-aged guy talked the staff into letting him on.


    Instead of trying to get people to jump onto Fox News' "profile them!" bandwagon, why aren't we asking real questions like... Who was the middle-aged Indian man, and why did the staff let him on board without the passport?

    Re: Is it time to profile on airline flights?

    I am and old guy and have lived a good life so I am not afraid to die but I want to see my children and grandchildren live a long and happy life.....I dson't believe the lefties speaking in this thread represent the thinking of the silent majority in this country.........I am so happy for that......I do believe the war on terror will be long and drawn out, maybe even a hundred years and for the lefties that speak here who believe here is not even a war on terror happening is what is insane.....I think those of us who believe we are in the biggest danger of our lives will fight to the end and even protect our left wing friends in spite of themselves......The radical muslims want us to convert to their religeous beliefs or die.....

    Some of you lefties have called me a coward......I am no coward I have lived a great life and died tommorrow I would have no regrets........

    Those "witnesses" are either lying or they're extremely confused. The Dutch government has officially confirmed that the guy did hold a valid Nigerian passport and a valid US visa. The things some people will do to get on TV.

    CTV News | No red flags on terror suspect: Dutch officials

    There was nothing suspicious about a man alleged to have carried an explosive device onto a Detroit-bound flight in Amsterdam on Christmas Day, the Dutch government said Wednesday.

    Interior Minister Guusje Ter Horst spoke to reporters as her government released the results of its investigation into how 23-year-old Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab boarded Northwest Airlines Flight 253 while allegedly having an explosive device strapped to his leg and despite his being on a terror watch list.

    Abdulmutallab was carrying a valid Nigerian passport and a valid U.S. travel visa and did not appear on any Dutch lists of terror suspects.

    You have been alive longer than me, and I'm sure you know that one thing leads to another in some cases. Like I said in a previous post... The government already has the power to tape phone lines with a warrant, hold prisoners without an attorney, and torture. Now you want us to start profiling. We can't keep expanding the government's powers every time something like this happens.

    The radical muslims want us to convert to their religeous beliefs or die.....
    ...and they would be happy if we lived in a fascist police state where the rule of law doesn't mean anything.

    Some of you lefties have called me a coward......I am no coward I have lived a great life and died tommorrow I would have no regrets........
    I don't think you are a coward. You are standing up for what you believe in and you mean well for our security, but I think you are wrong with this thread. I personally disagree with you on profiling.
