Mikey Smerconish would be proud

The pallid pate of Philly's pro-profiling pundit must be aglow with joy at the news given that he would happily classify "flying while Arab" as a capital crime.

The Raw Story | Iraqi-Americans removed from flight for speaking Arabic
NBC News reported Thursday on an incident at the San Diego airport in which "an American airlines flight to Chicago was delayed because a passenger was scared of several Arabic-speaking men on board."

"Those men she heard talking? They were Iraqi-Americans, in town to train US Marines at Camp Pendleton," explained NBC's Brian Williams. The men were removed from the plane and questioned briefly before being released. The flight was canceled and all passengers caught other flights the next day.
