This is the point. Unfortunately it is those of arabic decent that are going to get more heat because of the acts of 9/11 and the threats of the Taliban. It is not that these individuals are being handcuffed and forced to be cavity searched. It is that they fit a particular suspicion that the feds are looking for. Is it right? Probably not, but how else are you going to keep 9/11 from happening again? I dont know the answer and from the looks of it, neither does the government. Is Mike Smith capable being a terrorist? Of course he is. But unfortunately we dont know of a large, well-organized group of white American males making terrorist threats on America. If we did, it would be interesting to see how the government would handle it but we dont, so this is how it is being handled until someone comes up with a better idea.
Exactly. As soon as the "White redheads with freckles brigade" begins blowing crap up then we will start to profile them too. But until then, the arabic looking folks will get the stink eye, like it or not, that is just the way it is.You PC 'rs make me sick. We are at war folks, don't ever forget it. And this has little to do with Bush or Iraq. We were attacked long before that. And a certain group of folks fitting a specific ethnic profile have been to blame all along. PERIOD. Wake up and smell the coffee.

Wow. That just goes to show you what an ignorant racist idiot you are. That and calling the McVeighs and Nichols a one-hit wonder as if this country is not filled with right-wing government extremists. I guess you have never heard of the countless times abortion doctors have been assasinated, or all the groups that use Waco and Ruby Ridge as government propoganda to recruit men like McVeigh. If you really think McVeigh is a one-hit onder, you're living in another world.
You are mixing apples with oranges to make your stupid pointless point. You can't see that?
