    I have a suggestion on how they can be more widely accepted in to the society. Help find and prosecute fellow Muslims who are radical, and want to kill innocent civilians, simply because they are Americans, or supporters of America.

    I will gladly give my fingerprints to the feds, if they ask. I have nothing to hide, nor anything to fear by doing so. Want a retina scan, bring on the hardware, let's get 'er done!

    From now on, everyone should get fingerprinted when crossing the border!

    To paraphrase Dennis miller, should it be called profiling, or should it be called minimally observant?

    I applaud the actions of the border guards in stopping these people! And they should get used to the scrutiny....it is sorely needed in this case.

    I cross that bridge routinely in my truck. I usually spend a couple of hours as my import stuff is scanned and double checked. Seems that if they didn't anticipate trouble, they should have. The best part of the article is where the customs guy doesn't threaten anything other than a delay. Kinda kills the sky-is-falling paranoia of those who think post 911 America is becomeing AmeriKa.

    This is somewhat reminiscent of the stupid muslim woman who pitched a fit over lifting her veil in order to have her picture taken for a driver's license. Tough cookies. If your religion prohibits you from showing your face, fine - you don't have to. You just won't get a license. Except in this case it turns out that the dingbat in question was a caucasian who had converted to islam and probably didn't want to show her face because she was also a convicted felon.

    I think this is one case where racial profiling is okay. It still makes me nervous to say that but so be it.
