Strip Searches and profiling justified with paranoid hyperbole

A retired U.S. General has called for strip searches of all muslim men at airports and threat-based profiling, declaring that in the next 30-100 days, there is very high probability a US airliner will come down.

Retired Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney made the comments on a Fox News broadcast over the weekend.

Weve got to go to more than just the normal process that theyre talking about now, he said on Saturday.

We have got to go to very, very strict screening and weve got to use profiling. And I mean, be very, very serious about the profiling. If you are an 18-28-year-old Muslim man, then you should be strip searched. If we dont do that, theres a very high probability that were gonna lose an airliner.

As the Fox host pointed out that racial profiling would likely not be well received in the United States, McInerney replied, I agree, thats the problem.

It is not racial profiling, he added. It is profiling just like the Israelis do. Lets use the same procedures that the Israelis do.

If you lose 300 Americans, and then people are gonna say Why didnt we do this? the General turned military analyst stated.

McInerney is currently chairman of the Iran Policy Committees advisory council and co-author of the interestingly titled book Endgame: The Blueprint for Victory in the War on Terror.

In the book,the general calls for invasions of North Korea and Saudi Arabia, as well as Syria, where he claims Saddam Hussein hid weapons of mass destruction.

The Generals comments proceeded the Transportation Security Administration announcement of enhanced screening procedures at U.S. airports, with foreign travelers from terror prone countries.
