Hmm that doesnt seem weird at all. Why would the government be keeping tabs on people not related to terrorist groups? Not only that, but the group of those without the ties looks like it makes up almost half of the people on the overall list. Check it out from Reason.com
More than 40 percent of the people on the United States federal government terrorism watch lists have no discernable connection to any terrorist group. 280,000 out of 680,000 people on the list of those whom authorities are keeping their eyes on and pulling aside for further examination at airports and border crossings have no actual connection to terrorist groups. The analysis comes from journalists Jeremy Scahill and Ryan Devereaux at The Intercept. They just recently exposed the complicated yet also terribly vague guide the federal government uses to put people on the list. Now theyve gotten their hands on a classified document detailing the National Counterterrorism Centers (NCTC) list of accomplishments for 2013 and have crunched the numbers to provide the lovely graph below:

How many are FReepers?
"It has been observed that a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this.
The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity."
Speech in New York, urging ratification of the U.S. Constitution (1788-06-21)
Stalin, Hitler and Obama all had lists - - - - must be a Dictator Guy thing.
The real terrorists, of course.
The ones Lois Lerner, Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano are so worried about that they cannot sleep at night.
Where is this list?
I’ve actually been waiting for me to get pulled aside for a few years now.
The TSA protects airplanes from being blown up from “people”. The NSA protects the internet from “people”.
I am A FReeper and also a Tea Party Patriot member. I guess I am on the list twice. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I own guns. That should put me on the list three times.
There could be a very good reason this. Remember Maj. Hasan supposedly had "no discernable connection" to any terrorist group. I would like to think these are people who frequent jihadist mosques and websites. But with the Obama administration they are just as likely to be TEA Party members.
“How many are FReepers?”
That’s what I was wondering...probably all of us.
How many of these extra people have political or social views that warrant harassment?
Hmm — people who checked “Other” as their Racial Classification on the census?
please see post 16...
Im fairly certain that Obie doesnt have that much in the way of a sense of humor..so I suspect I may be on one list or another..
Put in a word for me too.
“A Man is known by who his enemies are.”
Will Do! WIll Do!
Rumor has it that in addition to being a member of the muslim broitherhood ....barack Obama Is also on the roster of a gang called///Wah Ching!
