Scan 'em All. Let God Sort Them Out.

You know, at first I thought I was going to have to agree with the ACLU, in rejecting the use of the full body scanners, citing privacy issues. After all, why the hell should we give up our privacy, instead of forcing the government to institute some logical profiling to combat the threat of terrorism. The flying public has been inconvenienced at every step in the name of security, rather than - God forbid - inconveniencing the small target group of Middle Eastern men who end up actually being the terrorists.

However, after coming to the realization that using these full body scanning machines might actually keep radical Muslims from flying in the first place, I may have to rethink my position.

Think about this for a second:

No self respecting Jihadist is going to allow his body to be seen by an infidel, let alone a female infidel. They will never know who the TSA attendant is who is looking at their near naked image, as the viewer will be in a separate room, not in view by the person being scanned.

In addition, most Muslim men would never allow their wives, daughters or sisters to go through the scanner either, so that takes care of any female terrorists to boot.

Isaac Yeffet, former head of Israel's El-Al airlines, said Muslims would not stand for any widespread use of the device since it would, to some, represent a dishonor to women and their families.

"Realize that a Muslim will know that his wife was seen naked in this machine," Yeffet said. "You know what would be the reaction? ... Terrible."

Terrible? Boo-Hoo. What’s terrible is Americans having to give up freedom in exchange for security, or worse, being slaughtered by these fanatics. I say inconvenience and profile ALL Muslims who fly. Maybe, the non-fanatics in the bunch will start speaking up against the radical Jihadists in their religion, who make life miserable, and deadly, for us all.
