As new bombs rain on Syria and Iraq, creating more and more hatred for America.....just when we're going to need a little more leverage in detecting potential terrorists in this country, EH pulls the carpet out from under our agents.

The next major terrorist attack in this country will probably occur during the next administration... because these things take time to plan... so let's remember this new policy when it does occur.


Justice Department to ban profiling by federal law enforcement

The Justice Department is expected to issue a broad new policy in the coming two to three weeks banning religious and other forms of profiling by federal law enforcement officers, department sources said Friday.

The long-awaited policy will not include an exemption for national security investigations, sources said. National security officials and others in the administration concerned about terrorism lobbied hard for such an exemption, according to congressional sources.

The new policy will cover ethnicity and sexual orientation as well as religion. Advocates of the new policy said they were surprised because the debate over the national security exemption had blocked movement for months.

Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr., who said Thursday he was stepping down, had been on the verge of announcing the new policy several months ago, but it was put on hold by the White House days before the intended announcement, according to a congressional aide who was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The White House insisted the policy be reviewed for its national security implications by the Department of Homeland Security, the aide said.

The new policy, though still being finalized, is expected to prohibit federal agents from conducting undercover surveillance of a mosque, for example, without some information that criminal activity is underway. Under the current rules, approved in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, law enforcement agencies were given broad latitude to monitor specific religious groups.

    You may ban profiling but we all know you will NEVER stop profiling as it is nothing more than common sense. See a Caucasian dude in a beater car at 2:00 AM in the hood and you can bet he will be stopped. See a couple of thug looking negroes in a gated community and they are going to be stopped. Some would call this profiling but I would call it police work.

    The primary beneficiaries of this policy will be the dual citizens of Israel who work inside the US Government.

    Ever wonder how many there are?

    We did ... and our request to the State Department has been pending for 4 years.

    Evidently, it's necessary to explain the same thing, over & over.

    This is the third, and last time, we'll explain basic English usage.

    Known as the "editorial "we", it is used by editors & writers to avoid the too personal or specific "I".

    Having written & edited on & off for years, that usage has long since become a habit.

    and "we" are supposed to know this?
    So who have you written/edited for?

    "We" as in the imperial we. Used by royalty and those who have over inflated opinion of themself, aka, editors.
