Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

After September 11th, what you carried on your person was more closely scrutinized. If you had a sharp object - like a thick guitar pic, you'd never see it again. After the failed shoe-bomber was apprehended, you had to take off your shoes and have them scanned before setting foot on a plane. Then came the underwear bomber, who also failed in his attempt to bring down an airliner. Welcome to the consequences of his actions. YOU will now be required to either submit to full body scans or very intrusive 'pat downs' at the hands of TSA agents donning rubber gloves.

Compounding this insane dilemma further is the fact that the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has petitioned the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in an effort to get an exemption from the new screening procedures for Muslim women. Adding to that already insane request - considering that every individual responsible for the increased intrusiveness at the hands to the TSA was Muslim - is the fact that DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano is actually contemplating giving into it.

The Washington Times explains both the problem and the solution perfectly. The problem is that this White House - and the last one for that matter - refuses to identify the real threat, which happens to be Islamic terrorists.
The Transportation Security Administration's demeaning new "enhanced pat-down" procedures are a direct result of the Obama administration's willful blindness to the threat from Islamic radicals. While better tools are available to keep air travelers safe, they would involve recognizing the threat for what it is, which is something the White House will never do.

El Al, Israel's national airline, employs a smarter approach. Any airline representing the state of Israel is a natural - some might say preeminent - target for terrorist attacks. Yet El Al has one of the best security records in the world and doesn't resort to wide-scale use of methods that would under other circumstances constitute sexual assault. The Israelis have achieved this track record of safety by employing sophisticated intelligence analysis which allows them to predict which travelers constitute a possible threat and which do not. Resources are then focused on the more probable threats with minimal intrusion on those who are likely not to be terrorists.
The Islamic groups that have declared war on western civilization are laughing at us and we still don't get it.

Former Arab Muslim terrorist Walid Shoebat travels constantly, speaking to audiences about his former religion and warning them of its agenda. He is actually suggesting that all Arabs - including himself - should be profiled.

Just to re-cap, here is the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Keep that in mind as you watch former TSA Director Mo McGowan (at the 2:30 mark), who says he understands concerns over the violation of fourth amendment rights but "we're going to have to do it."
