TWA = Traveling While Arab 

Terror in the Skies, Again? - WomensWallStreet
Note from the E-ditors: You are about to read an account of what happened during a domestic flight that one of our writers, Annie Jacobsen, took from Detroit to Los Angeles. The WWS Editorial Team debated long and hard about how to handle this information and ultimately we decided it was something that should be shared. What does it have to do with finances? Nothing, and everything. Here is Annie's story.
Annie's story is that Middle-Eastern men scare her. Whooptidoo.

While this story does draw attention to the fact that Tom Ridge is a miserable failure like his boss, The Miserable Failure in chief, it does not use that as it's main theme. And the theme it does use is moronic.

The article suggests that more efforts need to be expended on profiling men from countries like Syria when they travel. Of course this would mean less resources to also do random screening on - say - South African Women or depressed Hispanic police officers. And this would be a problem as the FBI well knows.
