At most, he successfully made the point that profiling doesn’t automatically mean we lose a war.
I’m also wondering how he draws a parallel between what someone looks like, and an ideology. The example is horribly flawed, even if all he was trying to show that profiling isn’t a guaranteed war loss. Well, racism would make it work I suppose.
Not liking the apology. I’d have hoped for some explanation of how he came to select that particular example. If he’s not self aware enough to know where he went wrong, how can anyone trust that he won’t screw up like this again? To be fair, though, he did unambiguously state that the internment was wrong.
