Why I Hate the ACLU

In a comment to a post yesterday, I suggested that it might be wise if the United States were to adopt the airline passenger screening techniques used by Israeli security and El Al.

It seems that the Transportation Security Agency got there before me, as did the ACLU. The first is working on a pilot program to do just that, while the latter is "raising questions," and wondering if this could "lead to stereotyping or racial profiling."

I think it might be best first to ask if the program could lead to detaining terrorists.

Here's the story from Newsday. Here's more from Time.
