    In addition, more and more gang members are joining to get training to take back to the hood.

    A couple of possibilities. Ft Hood is one of, if not the largest military installation in the U.S. Units from Hood have people moving in and out constantly so it is easy to just blend into the background. As long as you dress the part properly you can just be written off as a new guy who just transfered in. Also a lot of those people that are shipping out are on their way to Iraq or Afghanistan so eliminating key personnel from units there would in theory degrade the combat effectiveness of those units.

    I've heard of recruiters going into low income areas and aggressively recruiting kids there, promising financial aid for college. They go for the chance at an education in order to escape the hood, and only realize too late what it is they've gotten into.

    ANYHOW... I am only contributing to the Off-Topic-ness of this thread so we can discuss here: Discussion about security
    Important to remember also... "All scripture is inspired by God" (2 Timothy 3:16 NAB) New testament

    That, of course, includes the scripture in the Old testament as well... so it can't be ignored.

    Back to Fort Hood.
    I'll ask again.... your solution to the security problem appears to be profiling. Who exactly would you profile?

    Let's keep in mind it wouldn't be difficult for a potential terrorist to change his/her name to, say, a traditional Arab or Persian name - at which point, one would normally assume they are not Muslim, but perhaps Ba'hai, Parsi, or Christian. So that doesn't work. In addition, we've seen non-Arab Islamic terrorists, including American-raised Caucasians. What do we do then?

    Racially or ethnically based profiling is not a panacea.
