“NEW SNOWDEN” REVEALS SECRET DATABASE …
Nearly 700,000 individuals are part of the federal government’s “Terrorist Screening Database,” according to documents obtained by news magazine The Intercept . Not only that, the list includes 280,000 individuals who are described as having “no recognized terrorist group affiliation.”
Which calls into question the government’s definition of a “known or suspected terrorist.”
Nearly 1,000 new names are added to the list every day, while the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) – which was recently busted spying on members of Congress – reportedly steals records from foreign governments to add to the list using a secret program code-named “Hydra.”
Other agencies feeding this growing monster? The National Security Agency (NSA) – which runs the nation’s domestic spying program – as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the U.S. Department of Defense.
“The documents, obtained from a source in the intelligence community, also reveal that the Obama Administration has presided over an unprecedented expansion of the terrorist screening system,” reporters Jeremy Scahill and Ryan Devereaux note.
No shocker there …
Oh, and speaking of that “source in the intelligence community,” federal officials are reportedly apoplectic that despite all of their precautions there’s another Edward Snowden on the loose.
“The federal government has concluded there’s a new leaker exposing national security documents,” CNN reported in response to the terrorist database documents appearing on The Intercept .
Really? What gave it away, geniuses?
The government’s list includes 500,000 facial recognition scans, biometric files on 144,000 people, 70,000 iris scans and a quarter of a million fingerprints.
Defenders of liberty were appalled …
“We’re getting into Minority Report territory when being friends with the wrong person can mean the government puts you in a database and adds DMV photos, iris scans, and face recognition technology to track you secretly and without your knowledge,” Hina Shamsi of the American Civil Liberties Union said.
Oh, and there’s also evidence the government recognized the damage that was coming and tried to “spoil the scoop” by leaking its own version of the story to another news outlet.
“To spoil a scoop, the subject of a story, when asked for comment, tips off a different, typically friendlier outlet in the hopes of diminishing the attention the first outlet would have received,” explains Ryan Grim of The Huffington Post .
Grim goes on to note that the “government’s decision to spoil a story on the topic of national security is especially unusual, given that it has a significant interest in earning the trust of national security reporters so that it can make its case that certain information should remain private.”
FITS may not be a Terrorist, but you sure choose their rights over the rest of us.

Moron … I’m trying to protect your rights.
I don’t mean this in an ugly way. But I’d rather not have any rights than to depend on you to protect them.
Perfect! Then I deem you a “Brutal Jihadist murderer”, please report to your nearest gallows for the proper service.
Since this is on an article about the database of non-terrorist terrorists, are you suggesting that Obama pick up his list of terrorists and start killing everyone on it? all the Vets and Christians and limited gov’t holdout should just be killed because Obama has decided that they are terrorists?
Code name of Hydra? Dear God, they ARE real…
I got that joke without the linkage. *golf clap in the office*
Just like the CIA to publish their operations manual in the form of a comic book!
but.but.but… comics are supposed to be funny!!
Bullwinkle and Rocky in…. The lean two… or the “big lean”
Bez drives through the Kroger Parking lot, while Euwe leans out the window..
The target: an overflowing cart in front of a jeweled, portly customer approaching a Beemer.
Sure and swift, a large bag swings into the window, and we speed off to our rendezvous with destiny – a weekend of study before finals.
There are too many here that don’t love Big Brother. Please report to room 101.
The current Administration is trying to morph Veterans into the new Boogey Man for some inexplicable reason. I don’t want to go into conspiracy theory territory, but seems like independent minded people, capable of defending themselves aren’t popular with DC.
Good group of angry .liberal losers on here for the most part. They take their intellectual ass whippings on a daily basis and return for more.Thumper. Rouge and Tango pound em like Israel is pounding Hamas.
In my opinion Smirks is the only blogger that belongs on the ‘list’ as Will defined him as a socialist and socialists are terrorists.:-)
*I consider my listing as an honor”
Paul Newman(?) on Nixon’s enemies list
Anyone who describes Tango as “intellectual ” is as dumb as Haystacks Calhoun.
How cute, Sandi expresses her butthurt through sock puppetry.
How did your imaginary friend fare with sparklecity?
For too many years the Christians and conservatives have acted like gentlemen while the true terrorists of the left have almost destroyed our once great country. We need to stand like the Jews after WW II. “NEVER AGAIN”. BTW Thanks.
When you want to hook up with the ACLU and the Huffington Post you are way out in left field. Google Hina Shamsi and see what she has been doing with the UN, among others.
Here’s an Idea … Instead of saying “Hello” and “Good Bye” on the phone, we replace these words with “Anthrax” and “Plutonium” on all phone calls, texts and emails. OVERLOAD THE SYSTEM!
I once proposed that. Put the names of every known terrorist group, military base, explosive, poison, and weaponizable disease in an invisibly small font size or color at the end of every email message and posting.
…strategically placed splashes of red paint that, from satellite height, like the monkey with spiral tail, spells out “9/11”
Anon, you’ve just been added to the list. I’ll be added because I just bought a pressure cooker.
Foolish little rabbit – don’t send in the warranty info !
You’re right. I bought it with cash, but they have more video of me than Jameis Winston’s crablegs. I also saved $3.00 by using my loyalty card.
Yeah, I see your point. After all, how many cute little rabbits would actually have the courage to purchase a pressure cooker?
Yeah, give that a try anon, and it’s gonna be plutonium freedom anthrax prison.
— he’ll be building the prison…
If they make me build a prison, I’ll build it to imprison everyone else, and leave me alone outside of it.
Try closing out each call with “and I got this from my friend Cobra at NSA who swears this is the truth…”
You all might think I’m paranoid or insane, but I have been monitored, tracked, and followed by light aircraft or helicopters belonging to God knows who for quite a few years. I first noticed it on June 23, 2008.
You are paranoid AND insane.
And you are woefully unaware of the type of world we live in.
This advice from Tom and Ray Magliozzi—
1) – roll down your windows to let out the fly and the wasp
2) – tighten the screw on the wires to your radio
3) – your left rear tire needs to be ’rounded’
4) – June 23, 2008 was the day you let your mother-in-law use your car – where did she go and what did she do?
5) – don’t drive in our neighborhood –PLEEZE!!
It all comes down to the Mother-In-Law. Never trust them or turn your back.
[As told to me]:
This guy’s mother-in-law was a really tough, leathery old iguana. She enjoyed her coffee strong – in fact she ate it right out of the can with a spoon so that those little flavor buds could burst into life as they churned expectantly through her pyloric sphincter. She was the one who woke him up one morning rattling the bars of her cage because he had forgotten to give her a basin of fresh water the night before. When company came he kept her chained to an iron ring in the floor.
Gonna need to build a federal prison that can handle at least 3000 new inmates. Reason? No statute of limitations on all of these crimes that Obama and his cronies are committing.
Maybe the list of names will be leaked? Now the reporter getting their hands on that … hmmmm.
Let’s see : Christian , Vietnam Veteran, conservative, Republican, farmer, gun owner NRA member, Tea Party supporter, YEP I probably have a satellite trained on this little blue dot on my cell phone 24/7. With the current administration that is a badge of honor.
Ah, truth, thy name ain’t FITS. First, check out The Intercept. It’s a far left, anti-Israel screed site. Second, read the referenced article. There is only one – ONE – reference to the number of Americans on the list. Forty one Americans associated with Syria. Amazing how facts get in the way of sensationalism.
Spoil a scoop~~ That’s Lois Lerner’s MO
The Intercept is a far left, anti-Israel website. Except for 41 people associated with terrorist acts in Syria, there are NO numbers provided as to how many of those “targeted” are Americans. The inference is tens of thousands, the facts are more likely that just about all are foreigners. Read the article.
