Homeland Security Chief, Michael Chertoff, called well-known celebrity psychologist, Dr. Phil McGraw, into service today to train airport security in psychological profiling. It is now believed that terrorist can be detected by their body language and is a more sensitive security measure than having everyone take off their shoes. Liquid explosives and shoe bombs can’t be detected by X-Ray and Homeland Security had to find a better way to identify madmen, Dr. Phil seemed to be the answer.
Dr. Phil achieved national fame through Oprah Winfrey and the famous Amarillo meat trial. He had established a reputation for helping select the right jurors for a trial to favor the client he had been paid to help. He saw Oprah successfully through her trial and later became famous on her show with his behavioral approach to psychology and advice for troubled people. He then got his own show and has made millions. He is now eminently qualified to help our nation and stop the terrorist from blowing up our planes.
Dr. Phil says you can tell if a guy is a terrorist, and ready to blow himself up, by the expression on his face and certain body language. He said, “key things to look for are a furrowed brow, beads of sweat on the face or a twitching lip.” A swarthy look, a heavy beard and a turban also help but these can’t be used because it is considered racial profiling. He said, ‘with my method we also look at grandmothers, cripples and babies.” He indicated that, ‘everyone should be under suspicion because you just never know when babies and grandmothers will get into the act of blowing themselves up.”
