Britain: America's Canary In The Coal Mine

In my continued reading of England's calamities as they become America's canary in the coal mine, I read this blood pressure bursting article on their resident welfare, fifth column, terrorist traitors.

It's no wonder the Tory party is promising to drop immigration by 75% if elected. I loved what Judge Mellanby said when these scum's lawyers argued freedom of speech -She said: 'No one has the right to be gratuitously offensive or insulting. It is not just insulting to the soldiers but to the citizens and public of Luton who were out on the streets that day to honour and welcome the soldiers home.'

I would have gone way beyond her and drop kicked this bunch right out of the country... or into the ocean. After looking at the pictures of these lunatic enemy within and the fact they are on English welfare I visualized our UK canary in the coal mine beginning to get groggy.

Here our valiant canary considers profiling options at airports and perks up a bit.

OMG! I had to post this addition from today's UK MailOnline about an English family shut out of their dream home by Romanian squatters over Christmas after their house was just completed. The cops called them racists. You have to read this to believe it. Our canary just keeled over on its side gasping for breath.

We don’t need to profile!

We don’t need to profile. At the Center for Aggression Management, we use easily-applied, measurable and culturally-neutral body language and behavior exhibited by people who intend to perpetrate a terrorist act. This unique methodology utilizes proven research from the fields of psychology, medicine and law enforcement which, when joined together, identify clear, easily-used physiologically-based characteristics of individuals who are about to engage in terrorist activities in time to prevent their Moment of Commitment.

Since the foiled terrorist attack by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian national on Northwest Flight 253 to Detroit, the President has repeatedly stated that there has been a systemic failure as he reiterates his commitment to fill this gap in our security. This incident, like the Fort Hood shooting, exemplifies why our government must apply every valid preventative approach to identify a potential terrorist.

The myriad methods to identify a terrorist, whether “no-fly list,” “explosive and weapons detection,” mental illness based approaches, “profiling” or “deception detection” - all continue to fail us. Furthermore, the development of deception detection training at Boston Logan Airport demonstrated that the Israeli methods of interrogation will not work in the United States.

All media outlets are discussing the need for profiling of Muslim Arabs, but profiling does not work for the following three reasons:

1. In practice, ethnic profiling tells us that within a certain group of people there is a higher probability for a terrorist; it does not tell us who the next terrorist is!

2. Ethnic profiling is contrary to the value our society places on diversity and freedom from discrimination based on racial, ethnic, religious, age and/or gender based criteria. If we use profiling it will diminish our position among the majority of affected citizens who support us as a beacon of freedom and liberty.

3. By narrowing our field of vision, profiling can lead to the consequence of letting terrorists go undetected, because the terrorist may not be part of any known “profile worthy” group – e.g., the Oklahoma City bomber, Timothy McVeigh

Our unique methodology for screening passengers can easily discern (independently of race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, age, and gender) the defining characteristics of human beings who are about to engage in terrorist acts.

The question is when will our government use true “hostile intent” through the “continuum of aggressive behavior” to identify potential terrorists? Only when observers focus specifically on “aggressive behavior” do the objective and culturally neutral signs of “aggression” clearly stand out, providing the opportunity to prevent these violent encounters. This method will not only make all citizens safer, but will also pass the inevitable test of legal defensibility given probable action by the ACLU.

As our Government analyzes what went wrong regarding Abdulmatallab’s entrance into the United States, you can be assured that Al Qaeda is also analyzing how their plans went wrong. Who do you think will figure it out first . . . ?

Good information, John.

'Our unique methodology for screening passengers can easily discern (independently of race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, age, and gender) the defining characteristics of human beings who are about to engage in terrorist acts.'

If it works, I'm all for it. So far, the most threatened nation in the world, Israel, I believe uses many of the indicators you outlined.

All methods of interdiction should be co-ordinated. We shouldn't rely on just a few.

The system is definitely out of wack.

BernardL said...

And it seems the least expensive methods are the most effective, Bernita.

I think it all comes down to personal responsibility, Charles. The Security Agency employees both here and abroad want a billion dollar machine to blame when a guy like the Christmas Bomber bypasses everything and nearly kills a plane-load of people.
