An Air Marshal's View of Flight 327For much of the past month a fight has been raging in news reports and over the Internet about the behavior of 14 male Middle Eastern passengers on Northwest Airlines Flight 327 from Detroit to Los Angeles. Were the men terrorists casing the plane for a possible attack, as freelance journalist Annie Jacobsen suspected in a long article about the incident? Or were they, as the men said and federal investigators later concluded, a Syrian band on their way to a gig? (www.time.com) More...

This is so eight years ago. What cellphone do you all have?
How do you think food production companies feel when ONE company takes a short-cut that results in a lot of people getting sick? For example, not too long ago there was a large amount of tomatoes that were found to have some kind of harsh chemical or bacteria in them... Yes sure they eventually figured out where the cause was and got rid of those tomatoes from that one company, but do you think that didn't effect the other suppliers?? If only it was just as easy to find and root out the bad people in this world...
Well one thing's for sure - Islamo-Nazis are bad people which they've more than adquately proven and seem quite proud to claim as their mantle. Racial profiling is what this article is really about which many posters seem eager to deny because we've been dumbed down by a liberal media to regard it with disdain as if we live in a perfect world where discrimination of any kind or amount is forbidden. That ain't gonna happen in this fallen world in which we live. Racial profiling has in fact been shown to be the most effective and easiest means by which to find and root out the bad people of the world without having to embarrass and offend a lot of innocent people as is done every day by the TSA's groping and fondling of passengers while bowing to the politically correct gods of the media. Shin Bet of El Al, the most targeted airline in the world for terrorism, has it down to a fine art. Had it been in use on 911, 911 would not now be a number that lives in infamy. The timing of this event is irrelevant. I suspect these people knew perfectly well what they were doing, that by drawing unnecessary attention to themselves they would be racially profiled as expected and wanted to rub people's noses in it when their innocence was ultimately declared. Hatred takes many forms.
I'm pretty sure that if it were a bunch of white guys, we would not be hearing about it. I like the part that describes one of the men going to the bathroom for 10 minutes, something that seemed suspicious to the FAM. Really? Really?? Maybe the guy was constipated or just takes his time to take a dump. I have been in the bathroom for 45 minutes with my daughter trying to calm her down and no one came knocking on the door. The woman who wrote the original article is obviously paranoid - thinking to much about 9/11, which can be understandable.
Would you of rather had the Air Marshal not do his job and investigate further? These times of being political correct and being afraid of profiling are over. The Arab community has brought this upon themselves. I know there are lots of good Arabs, just as lots of good Christians, Jews, or whatever religion is out there, but the radical Islamists have ruined it for everyone. Yes, question these folks and see what they are up to...No harm in questioning, is there?
Finally some common sense! That means some open minded, thinking, understanding, reasoning, people, like you, Jeremy exist (although I see and hear very few of them!), Thanks, Jerry
What does being an Arab have to do with religion?

The Arab community brought this upon themselves? How is that? Arab terrorists are an extreme minority of the total Arab population, so how could the population have brought this upon themselves? Besides, by far most terrorist attacks in the US have been by non-Arabs, not to mention the Christians like McVeigh who eagerly slaughtered innocents.
