    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.
    This week, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that it had added a 31-year-old American animal rights activist named Daniel Andreas San Diego to its list of “Most Wanted Terrorists.” Describing Mr. San Diego as a “domestic terrorist,” the F.B.I. warned that he “should be considered armed and dangerous.” According to the bureau, Mr. San Diego is wanted for the role he may have played in the bombings of two San Francisco-area office buildings.

    And just to make you a bit uncomfortable:

    In addition to Code Pink, the bill could also designate the Progressive Democrats of America as a terrorist organization, as they have openly supported the Hamas flotilla. Members of the PDA include:

    Rep. John Conyers (D-GA)
    Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ)
    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)
    Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA)
    Thom Hartmann (radio and television host)
    Tom Hayden (who advocates the “peaceful” disappearance of the white race)
    Bill Fletcher (member of the Democratic Socialists of America)

    Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy about the prospects of Rand Paul 2016, doesn't it.

      ...and being the target of a Hellfire missile. You are actually making my point for me--all those names cited are still alive, aren't they? No Hellfire missile assassinations among them, is there?

      The administration standard to trigger a drone attack against an American citizen on American soil is much, much higher than anything you cited above. In fact, nobody has met that standard yet.

      Like I said, one can imagine all sorts of threats with paranoid hypotheticals....

    •  "Hamas flotilla"? (0+ / 0-)

      So that's what the game was about. Get a Turkish boat with giant Turkish flags join an international relief effort to bring goods to the Palestinians. Fill up the boat with fanatic looking people although most Turks are not fanatics. Get IDF to attack the Turkish boat commando style with a "kill-list" and then when the American liberals joined by the international community cry foul, designate them as "terrorists supporting the 'Hamas' boat."

      Wow! Amazing...I can't believe the level of monstrosity built in these plots.

      Evil does exist.

      terrorism and is on the lam from the FBI, then you are right that he has only been accused and thus may be not guilty. But if he is unwilling to turn himself in to stand trial, we are supposed to perpetually give him the innocent-til-proven-guilty status? IMO, if he knows he is wanted for terrorism, but it is a case of mistaken identity, he must turn himself in. If he doesn't, the police are (of course) going to consider him an ongoing threat. You are not being logical.
