Internment Camps Revisited

To: Michelle Malkin
Re: In Defense of Internment

I noticed that your book In Defense of Internment makes an extremely provocative case that the racial profiling of Japanese-Americans during WWII, including their evacuation, relocation, and internment in camps, was not only justified but also has lessons for our current conflict with Islam. What I don't understand, however, is how locking up all these Japanese-Americans today would help our cause. For example, aren't there many more Japanese-Americans living in the United States today than during WWII, and so wouldn't the logistics of hauling them off prove more difficult? Second problem: Wouldn't this move anger the Japanese government? Third - and I have to be honest with you on this one - I don't quite see how locking up the Japanese would help us fight Al Qaeda. Any illumination on this subject you can provide would be deeply appreciated.
