Just on CNN. The FBI’s terrorist watch list has 300,000 entries with 15,000 citizens. They get 100 calls a day and 65% of those are positive IDs. What they don’t say is what they are being identified for. The first audit of the system has been released – after how many years?
What I wonder is if this is the big list or does Homeland Security have a different list…?
Also absolutely no coverage of how it is nearly impossible to get yourself off the list. Or examples where IDs have led to abuse or harm to innocent civilians.
But as they tell me on CNN, ‘Even one mistake can mean lost lives.’
