What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

I can’t imagine what could possibly go wrong with government officials profiling and strip searching anyone who looks like this:

Obviously we know his affiliations now, but by the looks of him this could be a Christian man, an atheist man, a college student, a musician, a kid traveling home to see his family, a future president, a future scientist, a future doctor who cures cancer — he could be an innocent American man with rights and liberties guaranteed under the Constitution.

But General McInerney wants the government to categorically label anyone who looks like this as a potential Muslim terrorist. And with such a measure, all progress on civil rights and civil liberties are summarily destroyed.

I wonder if the general ever suggested that we profile people who look like this:

Should we also profile anyone who looks like Timothy McVeigh?
