Do you think the FBI should be able to investigate Americans based on terrorist profiles without any evidence of wrongdoing?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 3, 2008
“No, I think they should have to have done something wrong to warrant the investigation.”
“I think that it depends completely on what is entailed in the profile and how detailed they are.”
“At this point, with our government’s policies about privacy and civil rights being what they are, I would be reluctant to broaden their authority.”
“I think they should. It’s an entirely different world we’re living in now, and I’m a card-carrying Democrat, but we are the only major industrialized country that doesn’t already use terrorist profiles as a matter of policy.”
