Of course. It's called common snese self defense. Better known as profiling.

You are right 50s, if anyone who is Muslim and traveled to Russia or the middle east or parts of Africa is a suspect, you would hear all sorts of people saying its profiling and unfair. To be honest I think the FBI knabs a lot more of these guys than we know about and since you can only determine the likelihood of someone to commit a terrorist act before they actually do, they have a very tough job. There are simply not enough resources to check into and stake out every suspected enemy to America. This is where the citizens of this country need to step up and if you see things out of the ordinary or hear things, you need to call someone right away. Although here is another idea, close the borders. No one comes in....no exceptions. No visas no green cards no citizenship. Then we would only have to worry about home grown terrorists and not have to police the entire world 24/7.

The truth Obama does not want to offend his Muslim brothers so he allowed our people in Bengasi to be killed when the resources were there to send,( breaking news Obama threating all who know truth and talk.)Watch Saudi Arabia this administration and last protect them as in 911,Obam's wife pictured with first" person of interest" then Saudi's came here and shut everything up. Watch they do not have our best interest at heart.

Do we want big brother (government) spying into EVERY aspect of EVERY citizen's life. Reminds me of a very good saying: 'You can't make me feel safe by taking away all of my rights'! No govt will ever be able to stop every act of terrorism; we moved into an all-together different world after 9/11 and we'll just have to learn to live with it.

Absolutely!

Now we have innocents dead or legless with no way to pay bills for hospital, rehab or new prosthetics. They will have to rebuild their homes and lives to accommodate their suffering bodies and that will take thousands. Meanwhile we pay the bills for the ungrateful and deranged bum who placed the bombs next to them. What is wrong with this picture? How can we keep silent for so long? How many of these assaults will it take?

Thankfully over the years, numerous acts of terrorism plots have been thwarted. This latest example of a successful attack should be investigated thoroughly, in hopes of preventing a similar act.

"close the borders. No one comes in....no exception"

And Maddog - how about not giving these low life's $100K in welfare benefits!

50's, don't you understand profiling does not fit into the left's politically correct philosophy? God forbid we check out or watch closely any Muslim or other savage that fits a profile. We certainly wouldn't want to offend anybody.

Correct.....I don't believe anyone who immigrates to this country should be given any welfare benefits....if you are here and can't a productive member of society instead of a leach....please go back to your home country and leach off of them.

What kind of a dumbass actually believes diversity is more important than protecting the citizens and the nation as a whole? Yep. You guessed it. We have about 30 million people living here who have no allegiance to this country. We insist on bringing in another 30 million, just to make you ignorant left wingers feel warm and fuzzy.

There is no way our autorities should be a ble to allow anyone who came here for asylum to leave and visit or live in the country they came from, complete with citizenship, and path to a social security check. Remember about 6000 US citizens in Libya when it collapsed? Token Americans.

".... Muslim or other savage ...." This is the mentality of 90% of the posters here. You must spew your senseless thoughts for lack of anything else to do as you sure can't be taken seriously with statements like this.

Of course. It's nsot all Muslioms. Just millions of them. Pretend you don't have to be Italian to be in the mafia. Dwell on the fact that you don't have to be in the mafia to be Italian. That makes it all go away.

OK Howie - i'll play. When was the last time a Christioan or Jew cut off someone's head? When was the last time a Christian of Jew blew up a school bus? When was the last ime a Christian of Jew stoned a woman to death for being raped? When was the last time a Christian of Jew crashed a plane into a building? When was the last time a Christian of Jew yelled "God is great" before gunning down our military men and women on an Army base? When was the last time some Christian or Jew blew up innocent people wearing an explosive vest? Oh wait, I think SAVAGE Tim Mcveay blew up a building but has a Christian of Jew done so since then?

You're right, your Muslim brothers and sisters are all about peace and love. I wonder how you would feel if someone you loved was in the World's Trade Center, Fort Hood, or the Boston Marathon?

Another right-wing conspiracy theory from the brainiacs at Ogden and all of the local xenophobics come out of the woodwork. Sure, Seadog, no Christian has committed any of those crimes, in your dreams! $100K in welfare for illegals - sure, in your dreams!

By David Martosko and American Media Institute

"The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sent a written warning about accused Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2012, long before pressure-cooker blasts killed three and injured hundreds, according to a senior Saudi government official with direct knowledge of the document. The Saudi warning, the official told MailOnline, was separate from the multiple red flags raised by Russian intelligence in 2011, and was based on human intelligence developed independently in Yemen. Citing security concerns, the Saudi government also denied an entry visa to the elder Tsarnaev brother in December 2011, when he hoped to make a pilgrimage to Mecca, the source said. Tsarnaev's plans to visit Saudi Arabia have not been previously disclosed".

"Seadog, no Christian has committed any of those crimes, in your dreams"! MONKEYBOY, please site some examples, especially the cutting off heads, stoning a rape victim, and blowing up women and children. I can't wait.

"$100K in welfare for illegals - sure, in your dreams" MONKEYBOY do you have a high school education? If you did your reading comprehension would be much better. Please show me WHERE I SAID: "$100K in welfare for illegals".

Please stop making a fool out of yourself EVERYTIME you post by only reading into things that YOU WANT TO.

RE the supposed American Media Institute "story" about the Saudi's denying an entry visa to Tsarnaev: The story originally appeared in the Daily Mail (UK, in case you didn't know) under the byline of the notorious David Martosko, who also brought us the "exclusive bombshell" [faked] about Sen. Menendez visiting prostitutes in the DR. The original Daily Mail story even admits the sources are "vague" and "inconsistent." The Saudi Embassy has denied the report. People PLEASE vet your sources before regurgitating crap from right-wing bloggers.

Yes, Jhwinnyc - I suppose the Russian warnings were also made up. You lefties will find anything to give cover to the Keystone Cops running this country.

Who said Russian communications were made up? Caveat lector--always important, especially so on the Internet.
