Just look: this man carried a bag across the border and no one stopped him! More men carrying more bags will surely follow! Pretty soon the US will be over-run by white men carrying bags!
Where did Ken Salazar, Senator from Colorado, get the idea that so many terrorist organizations are lurking within Canadian borders? From an unofficial CSIS backgrounder, cherry-picked.
Salazar also complained there are more international terrorist groups active in Canada than anywhere else in the world - some 50 different organizations - citing a Canadian Security Intelligence Service study.
A CSIS backgrounder in 2002, not an official report, did make that estimate but included the caveat that there could be more in the United States. [emphasis mine]
"This situation can be attributed to Canada's proximity to the United States which currently is the principal target of terrorist groups operating internationally," said the commentary, "and to the fact that Canada, a country built upon immigration, represents a microcosm of the world."
Even if we believe CSIS (a big if), do these people really think it's possible to secure the entire 5,000-km/3,000-mile border?
And if it were possible, do they really believe an invulnerable US-Canadian border will keep Americans safe from terrorism - no matter what the country's foreign policy and international behaviour?
Nothing will save us but our old friend corporate welfare. It's time to hand out another multi-billion-dollar no-bid contract, let KBR build a 3,000-mile-long impenetrable wall, stock it full of high-tech devices that that will never work properly, and call it a day.
