EUGENE VOLOKH explains why making foreigners from some Arab countries register isn’t, in fact, racial profiling. I would say “duh,” but it appears to have escaped the New York Times, along with many other media organizations. My objection to this plan is that it leaves out the Saudis, who are terror central.

If Bush craters politically over this war, it will be because he’s been too deferential to the Saudis. Which he has been.

UPDATE: Neal Boortz isn’t impressed with Arab complaints about this policy.
