The Department of Homeland Security has been forced to release a list of keywords and phrases it uses to monitor social networking sites and online media for signs of terrorist or other threats against the U.S.

The intriguing the list includes obvious choices such as 'attack', 'Al Qaeda', 'terrorism' and 'dirty bomb' alongside dozens of seemingly innocent words like 'pork', 'cloud', 'team' and 'Mexico'.

Released under a freedom of information request, the information sheds new light on how government analysts are instructed to patrol the internet searching for domestic and external threats.

The words are included in the department's 2011 'Analyst's Desktop Binder' used by workers at their National Operations Center which instructs workers to identify 'media reports that reflect adversely on DHS and response activities'.

Department chiefs were forced to release the manual following a House hearing over documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit which revealed how analysts monitor social networks and media organisations for comments that 'reflect adversely' on the government.

However they insisted the practice was aimed not at policing the internet for disparaging remarks about the government and signs of general dissent, but to provide awareness of any potential threats.

As well as terrorism, analysts are instructed to search for evidence of unfolding natural disasters, public health threats and serious crimes such as mall/school shootings, major drug busts, illegal immigrant busts.

The list has been posted online by the Electronic Privacy Information Center - a privacy watchdog group who filed a request under the Freedom of Information Act before suing to obtain the release of the documents.

In a letter to the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counter-terrorism and Intelligence, the centre described the choice of words as 'broad, vague and ambiguous'.

They point out that it includes 'vast amounts of First Amendment protected speech that is entirely unrelated to the Department of Homeland Security mission to protect the public against terrorism and disasters.'

A senior Homeland Security official told the Huffington Post that the manual 'is a starting point, not the endgame' in maintaining situational awareness of natural and man-made threats and denied that the government was monitoring signs of dissent.
However the agency admitted that the language used was vague and in need of updating.

Spokesman Matthew Chandler told website: 'To ensure clarity, as part of ... routine compliance review, DHS will review the language contained in all materials to clearly and accurately convey the parameters and intention of the program.'

I think that recently there was debate in Congress as to whether it was legal for the feds to spy on US citizens using predator drones (un-armed, or so they say..) over US airspace. I'll look into it and post what I find. I might have even made a thread in the World News section about it before now that I think of it..
 

inappropriate behavior

Your apology is accepted :)

Ah yes, 30,000. I remember now. I did post a news article about that on here.

How does that make you feel? I'll tell you what, it doesn't make me feel good.

If the Founding Fathers of this country all of the sudden came back to life and looked around for a day or two, they'd ask the public what the hell is wrong with them and why..how.. they let things get near how it is now. They wouldn't even believe they were in the USA.

It is very sad, and scary, what has and still is happening to our once great, the best, country. Our Forefathers did NOT die for their country for it to turn out like this... :(

It very well could be. I don't believe we could take back our country via a revolution.. the government is just way to strong and has everyone brainwashed anyways... BUT I think that the US is just going to do itself in. Economy is going to crash or something else will happen that they caused but can't fix. From there.... who the hell knows what will happen. I'll tell you one thing, it will be a very scary time for the country... for the whole world.

I'm super super paranoid... but things like the government 'spying' on my internet use doesn't scare me. I've been using the internet for 15 years and I've been lookin' at some fuuuuuuuuuucked uppp stuff sometimes. ;) If they think I'm a Satanic Nazi Serial Killer Terrorist they haven't said anything so far. They'd be wasting their time on a real boring chick. :D
