Political correctness has ruined our ability to discuss effective, efficient and practical ways to protect our society from the terrorist threat that is real and ever-present. Israel uses profiling to insure the safety of El Al, their airline, and we should do the same. With our intelligence capability, it is simply stupid not to employ Israeli techniques that have been proven successful. They would slow down initial embarkation, but I think the flying public would be grateful to undergo short, intensive questioning by well-trained ex-military personnel prior to boarding as opposed to full-body scans and intrusive pat-downs.
