CAIR comes out against profiling, shocker!

CAIR’s Nihad Awad submitted an islam op-ed to the PR Newswire. It seems the unindicted terror co-conspirators are concerned about RoP faithful being singled out for extra scrutiny at the airport.

Pointing to the last time an infidel blew-up a building, Awad plays the Tim McVeigh card saying; “In 1995, after bombing the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City, Timothy McVeigh was able to flee while officers operated on the false theory that “Arab terrorists” had committed the attack.”

While I disagree with the good chairman’s position, Awad concludes by offering alternatives to strip searching the ummah before boarding a plane. The most effective being behavior analysis. El Al and the State of Israel have employed this tactic and have been successful in keeping the airways safe. Undercover agents and manned cameras combing the airport for would-be terrorists would be an effective addition to the TSA. I, for one, love to people watch and would jump at the chance to profile look for suspicious behavior.

I cannot imagine any U.S. federal worker being as competent as the Israelis.

And, I heard that the TSA may be "unionized" under Obama, which will make them next to worthless.

I LOL'd when Dawud Walid of CAIR Michigan said that it makes no sense to profile because if we profiled then Barack Obama would be profiled because of his name...

Like that would be a bad idea or something.
