On MSNBC’s token “conservative’s” show, Department of Homeland Security’s head honcho, Janet Napolitano said if they weren’t manhandling the childrens, then the enemy would start using children as bombs.
Plus, the frisking was “done professionally according to the protocols.”
“Nobody likes to see those kinds of things [...] even though it was done professionally according to the protocols,” she said. “But, what TSA is doing is reexamining those protocols all the time. It’s all in relation to threat – what is the threat? And one of the things we do see is if you categorically remove a group from any type of screening, well those who seek to do us harm will then exploit that group. So you have to be very careful on how you do it.”
Key question in that nonsense?
“What is the threat?”
It’s not answered in the entire clip. It’s Islamic radicals, of course.
So let me ask another question, one that I have asked before. If you pass through an explosive detector without incident, then through a metal detector, why would anyone need to put their hands on you?
The answer is, they shouldn’t. But there are two problems here. First, the TSA agents are complacent and fail to notice important details like, say, guns.
The second is the federal government is working harder to protect Islamic splody hos from being offended than they are detecting the behavioral signs they give away. If we were effectively using behavioral profiling, we could single people out for extra scrutiny and prevent scenes like this:
If we have to have security at airports, and we do, then let’s do the best job we can. Excluding behavioral profiling weakens the system.
