Because someone who looks like this:
must be harmless, right....
(that would be Adam Yahiye Gahan, white American Citizen born in CA, who is a high level Al Qaeda operative in Af/Pak)
Well, you made my point for me.......you're helping keep the fear alive!
Backscatter "all-nude" scan that might
not cause cancer, or grope the genitals of 10 or 20 million male and female travelers because one white guy might be a terrorist?
Not being flip with you, but I'd rather depend on meteal detectors, explosive-detecting swabs, racial profiling, and a fully functional no-fly list COMBINED with security screeners that are 5 or 10 times better trained professionals than the current batch of McDonalds employees.
If the security screeners were PROFESSIONALS, real professionals, then rather than pretending we're safer, we actually would be safer.
There's simply no need to grab a guys dick or subject a person to unproven radiation technology just so they can climb on an airplane.
Of course, the terrorists have already won, the country lives in an artificially created state of constant fear
.........the question now is, when will people start to take their lost freedoms back?
I suspect that battle to take those freedoms back started earlier this week with the easily understood statement of one normal guy "touch my junk and I'll have you arrested".
