Reader comment on item: Time to Profile Airline Passengers?
in response to reader comment: Airport Profiling

Don't be so naive. Individual profiling is already in place though not obvious. Various means are currently used to covertly screen individuals and their baggage to avoid political non-correctness! Should a suspicious character arise then additional steps are taken in the form of an initially innocuous interview not a direct grilling as the Israeli Airline conducts.
