Did you see Bruce’s post this morning? So much for your profiling argument.
Which is what exactly?
Were we to continue the parlor game of listing terrorist attacks and linking them to race or religion I’m fairly confident that there would be more tick marks in the swarthy-ethnic-man column than in the pissed-off-whitey column. In as much as so many things boil down to a numbers game, you’re still better off giving a little extra scrutiny to guys who look Atta-like and leaving old men carrying Medals of Honor alone. I’m behind employing behavioral techniques too because it helps address anomalies, but waving your hand and dismissing any particular methodology is a sure-fire way to end up . . . well, Atta-like.
