Bortz: Can We Start the Profiling Now? Bortz: Can We Start the Profiling Now?

Neil Bortz asks: Can We Start the Profiling Now?. After all,
The Brits have identified 19 of the Islamic terrorists who had been plotting to blow up as many as ten airliners over the Atlantic ocean. Let's see now: What do we have here! Why ... and I hope you're sitting down here, because this is certainly very shocking --- every one of the 19 people who have been arrested thus far were men. They were all younger men, anywhere from 17 to 35 years old. Oh ... and every one of them had a Muslim name.
He also helpfully includes pictures of the 9/11 hijackers:
He continues:
What else stands out here? Well, there were no 78-year-old blue-haired grannies on the list. There were no families traveling with children. There were no young mothers with children in tow.

There are many absurdities in the way we are trying to keep Islamic terrorists (remember, "terrorists" is only half a word) off airplanes. I remember one particular DEA agent who was allowed to board a commercial flight in the U.S. with his gun ... but not before the security official confiscated his nail clippers.

Our enemies here are intelligent and cunning. When we refuse to profile at airport security points we look stupid and vulnerable.
