8. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by:

No, I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you? So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people.. They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone lest they be guilty of profiling.


Foot note: Fort Hood Texas......another Muslim, 39 years old, killed 13 people and wounded 30 some odd others... Does this fit the "profile"?

Yes, they have to search the little old ladies and confiscate their needles and yarn. They might knit an afghan.

This is so true. Just flew out of DIA last Thursday. While waiting in line to put my carry on bags through x-ray, 3 middle east lookin fellows not only cut to the front of the line passing about 30 people stuffed there bags into the machine, but walked strait through security without having to take off their belts or shoes. The real kicker is that after I verrrrrry vocally spoke my opinion I was escorted out of line and thoroughly searched. How is this even close to fair? I claimed to be profiled as a redneck white dude and probably would have missed my flight all together if my wife was not there begging me to shut up.
