    Post 'FBI Terror Watch List 'Out of Control''

    http://blogs.abcnews.com/theblotter/...rror_watc.html

    A terrorist watch list compiled by the FBI has apparently swelled to include more than half a million names.

    Privacy and civil liberties advocates say the list is growing uncontrollably, threatening its usefulness in the war on terror.

    The bureau says the number of names on its terrorist watch list is classified.

    A portion of the FBI's unclassified 2008 budget request posted to the Department of Justice Web site, however, refers to "the entire watch list of 509,000 names," which is utilized by its Foreign Terrorist Tracking Task Force.

    Personally, I think they fall far short in the number of "Terrorists" out there.

    In my humble opinion. There are many thousands in many different countries. A lot of them are just inactive sleepers, and/or planning for attacks in years to come. Not all plans are executed in a few days. Some take years to adequately plan for and execute without detection.

    And when the next big 911 happens... Y'all gonna say the FBI didn't do enough... 1/2 a mill most likely includes folks in and outside the US.

    Wouldnt matter if there was 10 million on that list if the borders remain as pathetically protected as they currently do then that list doesn't mean dick.
