Has Napolitano lost her mind????

Janet Napolitano, in charge of preventing terror attacks, is saying there is "no logic" in profiling muslim men under age 35.

Ummm really? I just looked up the ages of the hijackers from 9/11 and NOT A SINGLE ONE WAS OVER 35!!! In fact the oldest was 33 and the rest were between 29 (the next oldest) and 20 (the youngest).

The ages by plane: (33, 28, 22, 22, 25), (23, 24, 22, 20, 22), (29, 26, 24, 25, 20), and (26, 20, 23, 21).

What do you think? Do you agree with her?

  • She's more terrified of the PC police than she is of actual terrorists.

  • How long has she been listening to Obama? That could be part of her problem.

  • Profiling doesn't work.


    You can hate Muslims all you want, harassing them won't prevent another attack...


    BTW, NONE of the 9/11 hi-jackers had on Muslim garb....how would they have known they were Muslim?

  • Profiling doesn't work.

    Tell that to Israel. They profile and their security is the best in the world.

    Now I do not agree with all profiling, but you need to look for the type that fits the alleged crime.

  • Where is your proof Sweetie? Lets see some facts in your answers from now on huh? You spew your opinions daily expecting someone to believe what you say yet you never have any facts.
    I'd love to see a line up of all of those 19 terrorists. Bet they all had the same facial attributes and probably none were wearing suits. You can't JUST profile how a person looks, but it's a good start.
    Not profiling is nothing but PC crap.

  • Behavioral profiling does work. Unfortunately we have taught everyone in the world that we are tolerant and that if they claim racism they will automatically be given the benefit of doubt and that they can sue others based on their perception that others are racist. 


    Remind me again how many terrorists our TSA has caught or stopped?

    Why profiling doesn't work.
