Weighing in on the airport scanner controversy

The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch runs a regular feature in its newspaper identifying an important issue to the local community and asking for the vote of the readers on that particular issue along with any related comment. Occasionally I will respond and make a comment on the issue raised, as I did on today’s topic.

The Hot Issue:

Are full-body scanners at airport security checkpoints inappropriate?

__X__ Yes
_____ No

My Response:

Yes. We ought to profile suspected terrorists and question those who are not obviously Americans by birth or citizenship. We should model our security efforts after Israeli security measures. They do not seem to have the incidents we do. They use profiling. It is very foolish and expensive not to discreetly use profiling. I would choose profiling over being politically correct any day of the week!

    Hope the 112th Congress has more principled people like Ron Paul!
