But I can't say I agree with the gist of this post. Are mandatory strip searches by religion extreme? Yes, and we should not implement the idea. But is it reasonable to search people from the countries that have the mode of the people who want to attack us? Absolutely. And if "irritating" someone, especially regarding airport security, leads someone to become a terrorist, I would think they would be well on their way already. And we would have a lot more American terrorists as well. Flying to the U.S. is a privilege, and if we cannot enact even these common sense ideas, we would be better off banning international flights from these countries altogether. Besides, as Glenn likes to point out, video conferencing is always an option.
Glenn, still love ya. But you are dead wrong on this and others will just be dead if we do not take immediate, sensible steps such as the ones the TSA now proposes for focusing on certain countries.
Update: Bill Quick also disagrees with Glenn.
