    I can see both sides of this issue but let me ask one question. If you were boarding a plane with your girlfriend, your mom, and your sisters, and everyone else boarding the plane looked like Bin Laden, would you still be against the new patdown/xray systems?

    if they were all citizens, honestly, yes. non-citizens can be subjected to a more rigorous search without my feelings being hurt.

    and one thing, I’m coming around on the idea of “profiling”, in the sense that if we are fighting radical Muslim extremists, then those who look like radical Muslim extremists should be talked to by professionals who understand psychology as they enter the secure area, the same way they do things in Israel. I don’t see this kind of “profiling” as being any different than, if a white man in red shorts robs a store, and cops see a white man in red shorts in the area, they stop and question him. and it does not violate any rights or the Constitution.

    I don’t think the TSA or gov should be doing *any* of this, though.
