Since GOP Congressmen are also allegedly terrorists, it’s only logical to expand the list, I guess. Excerpt:
An FBI Denver Joint Terrorism Task Force handout being distributed to Colorado military surplus store owners lists the purchase of popular preparedness items and firearms accessories as â€œsuspiciousâ€ and â€œpotential indicators of terrorist activities,â€ instructing store owners to keep records on and report people who:
â€œMake bulk purchase of items to include: Weatherproofed ammunition or match containers; Meals Ready to Eat; Night Vision Devices; night flashlights; gas masks; High capacity magazines; Bi-pods or tri-pods for riflesâ€
The FBI handout, entitled â€œCommunities Against Terrorism: Potential Indicators of Terrorist Activities Related to Military Surplus Storesâ€ also instructs surplus store owners to:
â€œRequire valid ID from all new customers; Keep records of purchases’ Talk to customers, ask questions, and listen to and observe their responses; Watch for people and actions that are out of place; Make note of suspicious statements, people, and /or vehicles; If something seems wrong, notify law enforcement authorities.â€
The handout also instructs surplus store owners to consider as â€œsuspiciousâ€ anyone who â€œdemands identity â€˜privacyâ€™â€ or anyone who expresses â€œextreme religious statementsâ€ and those who â€œmake suspicious comments regarding anti-US, [or] radical theology.â€
The â€œCommunities Against Terrorismâ€ flyer closes by stating:
Preventing terrorism is a community effort. By learning what to look for, you can make a positive contribution in the fight against terrorism. The partnership between the community and law enforcement is essential to the success of anti -terrorism efforts.
Let me give a more realistic set of terrorism indicators: Possession of a Koran; Getting your butt up in the air 5 times a day; saying “inshallah”, “Allah Akhbar” or “Peace be upon him”; wearing long white coats; being seen inside a mosque.
