Raging Right Wing Republican

For those of us who are politically informed, and therefore Republican.

Profiles encouraged?

Few FBI agents know Arabic, the Washington Post reports:
Counting agents who know only a handful of Arabic words--including those who scored zero on a standard proficiency test--just 1 percent of the FBI's 12,000 agents have any familiarity with the language, the statistics show.
Hey, wait a second. Why should we care how many FBI agents speak Arabic? Arabic-language skills are good and well, but they won't do any good in catching a terrorist if that terrorist is a 70-year-old grandmother from Iowa. (Unless she speaks Arabic, of course.) Isn't the FBI just perpetuating the stereotype that terrorism is an "Arab" thing?
