Obama: no longer the anti-Bush? | Olivia Hampton | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk

Just how dumb are liberals? This dumb.

"The president's response in the coming weeks and months will be critical in shaping a relationship tattered by US action after the September 11 attacks, seen as having disproportionately singled out and targeted Muslims."


Have any of the terrorists since 9/11 not been Muslim?

"Giving further fodder to the criticism, Muslim women wearing the hijab said they were subjected to additional "humiliating" screening simply because they were veiled. In some cases, the women were told to remove their veil."


Well since Islamic scholars say the hijab is not a religious symbol but is in fact a radical political statement, it's probably a good idea to see what's under that radical statement. Two women wearing hijabs a few years ago blew up a Russian plane.

This will make your head spin.

"The president also insisted he would make no policy changes that would curtail civil liberties or freedom of movement, saying "we will not succumb to a siege mentality".


But later on she says this:

"Obama may have rejected using words like "war on terror" or "Islamofascism" and blunted some of Bush's harshest policies but a year into his presidency, he has retained military commissions, asserted state secrets privileges, expanded the use of unmanned drones to strike al-Qaida targets in Pakistan, as well as announced plans to hold dozens of terror suspects indefinitely without charge and triple the number of US troops in Afghanistan."


Do these people even read what they write?

"Profiling, if indeed necessary, should not focus on race, ethnicity, nationality or creed but on criminal behaviour. Setting additional measures for people who fit in those easily identifiable criteria only simplifies the task for extremists, who can circumvent the system and exploit loopholes."


Funny, it seems to work quite well for the Israelis.

"In times of war, the US is not alone in having put aside hard-fought civil liberties. Let's hope that this time, it won't last long."


What does she mean by "this time"? She just said Obama has kept most of Bush's policies in place. So, we're nine years and counting. Get used to it missy, we're in for a long war.

We don’t need to profile!

We don’t need to profile. At the Center for Aggression Management, we use easily-applied, measurable and culturally-neutral body language and behavior exhibited by people who intend to perpetrate a terrorist act. This unique methodology utilizes proven research from the fields of psychology, medicine and law enforcement which, when joined together, identify clear, easily-used physiologically-based characteristics of individuals who are about to engage in terrorist activities in time to prevent their Moment of Commitment.

Since the foiled terrorist attack by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian national on Northwest Flight 253 to Detroit, the President has repeatedly stated that there has been a systemic failure as he reiterates his commitment to fill this gap in our security. This incident, like the Fort Hood shooting, exemplifies why our government must apply every valid preventative approach to identify a potential terrorist.

The myriad methods to identify a terrorist, whether “no-fly list,” “explosive and weapons detection,” mental illness based approaches, “profiling” or “deception detection” - all continue to fail us. Furthermore, the development of deception detection training at Boston Logan Airport demonstrated that the Israeli methods of interrogation will not work in the United States.

All media outlets are discussing the need for profiling of Muslim Arabs, but profiling does not work for the following three reasons:

1. In practice, ethnic profiling tells us that within a certain group of people there is a higher probability for a terrorist; it does not tell us who the next terrorist is!

2. Ethnic profiling is contrary to the value our society places on diversity and freedom from discrimination based on racial, ethnic, religious, age and/or gender based criteria. If we use profiling it will diminish our position among the majority of affected citizens who support us as a beacon of freedom and liberty.

3. By narrowing our field of vision, profiling can lead to the consequence of letting terrorists go undetected, because the terrorist may not be part of any known “profile worthy” group – e.g., the Oklahoma City bomber, Timothy McVeigh

Our unique methodology for screening passengers can easily discern (independently of race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, age, and gender) the defining characteristics of human beings who are about to engage in terrorist acts.

The question is when will our government use true “hostile intent” through the “continuum of aggressive behavior” to identify potential terrorists? Only when observers focus specifically on “aggressive behavior” do the objective and culturally neutral signs of “aggression” clearly stand out, providing the opportunity to prevent these violent encounters. This method will not only make all citizens safer, but will also pass the inevitable test of legal defensibility given probable action by the ACLU.

As our Government analyzes what went wrong regarding Abdulmatallab’s entrance into the United States, you can be assured that Al Qaeda is also analyzing how their plans went wrong. Who do you think will figure it out first . . . ?
