Apart from the redundancy – "theoretically, it has to be" – she has her straw man at the ready with "snap judgments," as if she has shown that most terrorists are not Arab or Muslim. She also seems to concede the value of quick decisions when personally threatened. (I hope she does.) That’s on a lonely dark street, for instance, where we have ourselves and those with us to protect. For the government it’s thousands, even millions, to protect.
The stakes are too high, all right.
