9 Muslims removed from a jet

One of them says it was because they were “profiled because of their appearance.”  ….”It was an ordeal,” said Abdur Razack Aziz, the family friend who was also detained. “Nothing came out of it. It was paranoid people. It was very sad.”

First, I ‘m sorry it happened since it turned out they were innocent. Second, I’m glad it did, because it shows vigilance and good judgment about how they handle a suspected threat.  This might have turned out to be the start of the next 9/11 type incident.  I’m not a Muslim, but if I got on a plane looking like one, and said anything about airline safety, I’d expect to have something done about it. Americans are stupid, but they remember 9/11.
