ALEXANDRIA, Virginia (AP) The U.S. government is rapidly expanding the number of names it accepts for inclusion on its terrorist watch list, with more than 1.5 million added in the last five years, according to numbers divulged by the government in a civil lawsuit.
About 99 percent of the names submitted are accepted, leading to criticism that the government is "wildly loose" in its use of the list.

Red in Blue PA: "In the future, everyone will be considered a terrorist by the US government.....unless they are criminals, illegals or a protected class"
No doubt every member of Free Republic is on the list.
I wonder how many are real terrorists and how many are merely targets of opportunity for the leftists in power (prior military, conservatives, Christians, gun owners, and members of FR who have commented honestly on the thug in our White House).
With all the muzzies in this country, the suspect list of terrorists should be much longer.
Reminds me of a scene from VIVA ZAPATA in which Zapata (Marlon Brando) speaks up to the President of Mexico and his name is immediately put on a list.
Later, as President, he finds himself putting names on the list.
That seems like rather a lot. Even paranoid I don’t think there are that many terrorists in the US. Maybe one third of that amount. Maybe only about 10 thousand.
But, what are they saying, we’ve got one and a half million terrorists, let’s keep the borders wide open?
It makes no sense.
Oh yeah.. Pay no attention to the man behind the bulletpoof glass.
Every day you pass thru customs, just remember, smile.
At some point it will be easier to maintain a list of those that not considered terrorists .... everyone will be considered a terrorist unless on the list.
Higher the number better the chance to hire more GOVERNMENT SLUGS
I hope they spelled my name right. And they got my best profile on their photos. If I’d have known they were interested, I’d have painted “Bite Me” on my a$$ and given them a close-up.
Probably every white male who doesn’t vote ‘Rat.
how many of the additions are from the Tea Party?
SPLC figured that one out with regard to fundraising. Hell, they probably have Pillsbury & Michelin on their hate group list because their mascots are white.
If “terrorist” means every conservative heterosexual God fearing gun owning military veteran in America, then that number isn’t very realistic.
Probably aren’t that many muzzies on it anyway, if you get my drift.
How do you find out if your name is on a terrorist list ?

Makes perfect sense if you’re a Muslim president trying to destroy a country from within...
Just have to ask.
Of course, by doing so, if you were not there already, you get put on the list for asking.
“No doubt every member of Free Republic is on the list.”
I guess I will never be able to fly again.
There will be a lot more on that list as soon as DHS gets the consolidated rosters from the V.A. and the IRS.
The other pertinent question is: If your name is on the list (by mistake of course) What are the odds of getting it removed?
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I don't add you to the list...
Zero! And that’s FINAL!
Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against... We’re after power and we mean it... There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”
That’s a given and thanks for pointing it out. In reality, they should be the only ones on the list until that list is eradicated then we might entertain expansion.
If you eliminate the T.E.A. party members, the members of Catholic religious orders and the members of other Catholic organizations and diocese which have sued Obama’s HHS Obamacare mandates, you are probably left with about 100,000 veterans who own arms.
At first, I thought that there isn't enough prison space for all of us. Then, I had an Einstein moment. They don't want to put us all in prison. They want us all dead. When some rat orders gun confiscation, that might be the signal, for genocide to begin.
too bad they can’t be as efficient at the borderland with e-verify
From the article; “The Alexandria case follows a ruling last month by a federal judge in Oregon that found people placed on the list have no adequate means to challenge their status. She ordered the government to develop a better means for seeking redress from placement on the list. The government has not yet decided whether to appeal that ruling.”
Thus far, “the government” has not developed this ordered “better(?)” means. There are NO means.
If that’s not a picture of an out of control rogue government, I don’t know what is.
But Obama said we won that war!
How do I check to see if my name is there yet?
That is why NOW is the time to identify THOSE WHO GIVE THE ORDERS in your area. Find out who they are, where they live and work, their travel habits and recreation, their memberships. At the first hint of confiscation they must have "accidents" or just disappear.
If we fail to wait until they start the confiscation, though it is preemptive self-defense, it becomes much harder to justify. Can we afford to remain the "good" guys?
