    Are We Really Safer?

    A popular question from both sides of the aisle is Do You Feel Safer? Although there have been no major 9/11-type attacks since, there have been smaller executions by Muslims in our country - a most recent one taking place against Jewish women in Seattle, Washington.

    To me, one part of security is keeping the bad people away from us, as well as isolating potential target areas and exposing security-sensitive areas to the enemy. With that in mind I have to think that since 9/11 politicians on both sides of the aisle have let the American people down - especially with illegal, untraceable, aliens - over 15 million who-knows-what-their-up-to illegals, already criminals by their very actions of illegal entry into our country.

    Then I read this today - Controversial Muslim group gets VIP airport security tour. From that article:
    The Department of Homeland Security took a Muslim group with known past ties to terror organizations on a VIP tour of security operations at the nation's busiest airport at the same time British authorities were working to break up a plot to blow up U.S. airlines.
    At a time when Muslims shouldn't even be allowed to work at an airport, here's Michael Chertoff giving the public relations arm of the Muslim empire a tour of our airport security. Real smart Chertoff. Well I guess that helps make the Muslims feel like America trusts them huh? You should be fired Chertoff. (Check out the Recommended Movies and Understanding Islam links to the right).

    CAIR often uses the old ACLU argument of civil liberties when they try to manipulate law enforcement, the judicial system, and politicians. Earlier this year their branch in Ohio used this in attempts to block the "See Something, Say Something" plan:
    The meeting dealt with concerns over OHS programs such as "See Something, Say Something," the School Bus Watch program, as well as the Terrorism Awareness and Prevention (TAP) Program. CAIR raised concerns that the programs may result in profiling and surveillance of ordinary law-abiding citizens.

    The "See Something, Say Something" program is a statewide initiative that encourages people to report "suspicious behavior and people" to a terrorism intelligence tip line that is monitored by a consortium of public officials, who transmit the "tips" to law enforcement authorities. Questions have been raised about the integrity and potential misuse of databases generated by such tip lines.
    It's understandable from CAIR's viewpoint why they are against this - every suicide bomber killing and maiming innocent people have been Muslims. Profiling? Uh gee - knowing the murder numbers that are constantly accumulating in the Muslim's column I'd wonder why the heck we aren't already profiling! Oh, it's all the touchie-feelie concern - we shouldn't look like we are profiling. How dumb.

    The mission of CAIR is obvious from their own documents. I lost count of how many times on their site I read "to empower the American Muslim community" and "works in conjunction with local and national media to ensure an accurate portrayal of Islam and Muslims is presented to the American public" (in other words, damage control).

    You will never see them associate "Muslim" with any capture of a terrorist whether domestic or foreign. You will see them go out of their way to hide the connection. You will never see them even acknowledge Muslims commit terror acts. You will see them go out of their way to hide that connection as well.

    It's also noteworthy that their growing political clout advocates support for liberal (anti constitution, pro global control of America) candidates, not conservative (pro USA constitution, anti global control of America) ones.
