Nope, I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?

So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile
certain people. They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents of the President's
security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave
Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone because of profiling.

Let's send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Aldreds and other dunder-headed attorneys along with Federal Justices that want to thwart
common sense, feel doubly ashamed of themselves - if they have any such sense.

As the writer of the award winning story "Forrest Gump" so aptly put it, "Stupid is as stupid does."

Come on people wake up!!!
Keep this going. Pass it on to everyone in your address book.
Our Country and our troops need our support and prayers.

1. It's jingoistic, selective, racist BS. Period.
Who did the anthrax attacks? Who bombed Oklahoma City? Who originally supported Pol Pot? Who traded weapons to the Iranians (incontrevention of US law) to finance the terrorist Contras? Who killed JFK and MLK? etc etc.

This has nothing to do with the 9/11 forum, except that the crime of 9/11 has been pinned on "Arabs" with little evidence to support that. And even the people they pinned it on were mostly George Bush's kissy kissy friends, the Saudis. So what's the point?

Are they saying George is bad for letting the family of Bin Ladin flee the country without even asking them a few tough questions? Well, I agree.

Bring the troops home now, and we won't have to worry about their well being as much. Or does the author of that bit of hate spewing racist propaganda suggest genocide as the answer?

This is pure racisist propaganda.

Send your confused friend Loose Change 2nd edition Michael Moore's F 9/11.

2. The only link I would recommend for an introduction to the subject....
... would be the Complete 911 Timeline managed by Paul Thompson. It may open his eyes...

Better yet, get him to buy his book: The Terror Timeline

Or buy it for him.

3. I wonder if there is some major revelation about to break?
Because the Bushbots have been out in force and spinning full time.

You can hardly post a thread without a Bushbot making the first response and hijacking the thread. This isn't just with 9-11 issues, it's with everything.

4. Show him "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime"
It only uses things you can find in the corporate media, it shows the complicity of the administration at the very least, and raises the right questions and doesn't seem to have the poisoned pills that others do.

You can get it here:
