Your article is exactly correct and raises questions that are not addressed by our Government. Specifically, why are profiles not utilized to interdict potential terrorists? Recently while traveling with my thirteen year old daughter I observed the usual flurry of activity by the TSA inspectors/screeners at several airports. It seems that TSA time could be more effectively utilized to identify (1) those individuals who are of Arab/Muslim/Middle East background; (2) those individuals who have visited such countries; (3) those individuals who have visited countries listed on the State Departments list of nations that sponsor terrorism.
