That story might be considered balanced – it reports the general allegation and the denial. But it’s woefully incomplete and the outlet which published it likely would meet some ridicule. There’s a detailed record available to challenge Bonds’ denial that is not presented to readers.
Yet, that’s the routine when it comes to the media’s treatment of the tense relationship between federal law enforcement and national Islamist organizations – the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in particular. That tension derives from the FBI’s decision to cut off routine communication with CAIR and from a series of counter-terror investigations targeting Muslim charities linked to terrorists or involving the use of FBI informants in mosques.”
When it comes to terrorism and aircraft I think Hooper should be advised I’m already profiling on the basis of race, religion, skin tone, dress, shoes and whatever else it takes to create in him and his funny little friends FEAR sufficient to dissuade them from covering up for terrorists.
Profiling is exactly what we have to do. When a policeman tries to solve a crime, he doesn’t start with A in the phonebook. When was the last terrorist incident fomented by a radical Norwegian Protestant, or a Peruvian Animist, or a Laotian Buddhist? I can remember seeing an elderly Chinese woman in a wheelchair undergoing a patdown search, and yet this Islamic young man whose own father turns him in, is not searched? OK, put us all through the ringer, but connect the dots, for goodness sake.
Yah, keep an eye on the pesky Amish & the little old ladies in wheel chairs. That’s where the REAL threats come from!!! /sarc.
I am sure the muzzies will get their way on this one as well!!! Our gubmint is run by asylum inmates, from 0bozo on down
Is this pic the definition of TWISTED IRONY?
