Approved and Non-approved Political Screening By Janet
Apparently Janet Reno Napalitano has a list of approved and not approved political screening standards. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/04/19/AR2009041902276.html?hpid=moreheadlines It is not approved to screen for Muslim religious ties, South Asian ethnicity and Middle Eastern ethnicitiy, but quite valid to screen for NRA membership, Caucasian race, attitude toward abortion and the 10th Amendement to the Constitution, Catholic, Protestants, and military service. So, racial, religious, ethnic and political opinion profiling depends on the specifics of race, religion, ethnicity and political opinion, not on the principle of profiling itself. So, at the Ports of Entry to the U.S. you can expect alot more Catholics, Protestants, abortion protestors, NRA members and such to be profiled while Osama Obama Bin Laden and his cohorts will speed through, and, to paraphrase the big bad wolf, the better to kill you with.
