Terrorist Watch List of Tiny Minority of Extremists Approaching 1 Million

muslims will rule the world

In fact the tiny minority of extremists is so great that law enforcement officials are having trouble finding names in the tiny 875,000 names on the list.

The number of names on a highly classified U.S. central database used to track suspected terrorists has jumped to 875,000 from 540,000 only five years ago, a U.S. official familiar with the matter said.

Among those was suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, whose name was added in 2011. The increase in names is due in part to security agencies using the system more in the wake of the failed 2009 attack on a plane by “underpants bomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab in Detroit.

Intelligence and law enforcement officials acknowledged in Congress that they had missed clues to that attack despite Abdulmutallab’s name appearing in the main database, known as TIDE.

U.S. officials now acknowledge that Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s name was entered into TIDE by the CIA in the autumn of 2011, after the U.S. spy agency received a request from Russian authorities to investigate him for suspected radical Islamist activities.

The CIA also entered the name of Tsarnaev’s mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva’s, into the TIDE database. Tamerlan Tsarnaev died in a shootout with authorities in the days following the Boston bombing and his younger brother Dzhokhar was captured by police.

And worse still, this isn’t anything like a comprehensive list. These are just the names that came up and were entered into it. The actual list would be vastly larger than a mere 875,000 names.

But even 875,000 names is the equivalent of an army. The United States Army only has 561,437 active duty personnel.

It’s time for the Democrats and their leftist allies to stop pretending that this is a criminal issue, when it’s actually a war.

875,000 names is not a gang. It is not a guerrilla force. It’s not a few men in a cave somewhere. It’s an army and should be treated like one.

    Instead of TIDE, they should call it TSUNAMI.

    Islam is inextricably tied to terror because its underpinnings are Sharia Law! So if ones main "religious" laws mandate jihad – stealth (when weaker) and frontal (when stronger), then is it any wonder how many are on watch lists, and how many more still ! need to be added – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/13/islam-blood-a

    NEVER forget the blood element!

      Christians and Jews have renounced specific portions of the Old Testament calling for the stoning of gays, adulterers, and blasphemers. Why couldn't Muslims do that?

        Why couldn't Muslims do that?

        because to do so would be Un-Islamic

        Yeah why couldn't they do that? The problem is, they wont! Granted there are many Muslims that are peaceful, but there are many many more who are not!

    Mr. Greenfield, did you know that the NRA has a 'pledge' for politicians to sign. It's all pretty good except for one provision, and imo, has board member Grover Norquist (who loves pledges) all over it.

    Candidates who were endorsed by the NRA, pledged to:

    6) oppose legislation which bans people on the Terrorist Watch List from purchasing weapons;
    NRA

    Is it just me?? Do you think this is a BAD idea?? http://www.policymic.com/articles/21837/grover-no

      If You are outspoken against this administration. You can be put on the terrorist watch list. Should you be denied the right to purchase a weapon just because you disagree with this administration?

    Let's face the truth.

    The war is not with Al Qaeda. The war is with Mecca.

    It's the Islamic World War.

    If you want a database of a manageable size, you could compile a worldwide list of Muslims who do not support jihad. Nobody would be on it, because those who don't support jihad are not Muslims, but rather, apostates from Islam.
