Santorum Favors Profiling Muslims

Rick Santorum suggests "profiling" as a better security screening method than TSA patdowns, and that those who are "most likely to be committing crimes" should be screened. Yes, he says, that means Muslims. Ron Paul has a solid rebuttal: what about Timothy McVeigh? Herman Cain agrees that TSA patdowns are insufficient and outlines a plan for "targeted identification." Moderator Wolf Blitzer pushes Cain to elaborate and say whether Muslims and other "likely suspects" should be screened more often than, say, white Christians. Cain gets a little hot under the collar, calling Wolf "Blitz" and accusing him of "oversimplifying" his statement.
