Reader comment on item: Time to Profile Airline Passengers?

Submitted by kissedsmiley (United States), Aug 23, 2006 at 14:28

this letter didn't get published by the Sun, so I hope Dr. Pipes will be able to read it here.

Dear Sir, Mr. Pipes is correct that political correctness has reduced our effectiveness in airport screening. However, by his own facts, it seems false that "the chances of Muslim-focused profiling being widely implemented are negligible" In fact, "55% of Britons support passenger profiling" and we Americans would do the same. Americans hate Byzantine rules on airline travel.

I cried when I read that victims of breast cancer must register their conditions to be allowed to wear gel-filled bras. Americans cherish Western Civilization and want to be free to live in it. We are very willing to ask pointed questions to suspicious Muslims. Let's roll.
