Terrorist watch list at 800,000

The number of people that Homeland Security and the FBI is keeping tabs on is growing exponentially, and will top the 1 million mark very soon.  If you do the math, chances are not that remote that you know someone, or you know someone who knows someone, that’s on the list.

Do all those people belong on the list?
Even with your eyes closed you can guess the answer is ‘not’.

Now take into consideration the sheer volume of data that must be sorted when a name comes into question.  Possibly the safest place for a true terrorist to be hiding today is right in the middle of that watch list.
