Exclamation Homeland Security Monitoring Keywords on Social Networks

In response to a Freedom of Information request, the dept of Homeland Security released details of its social network monitoring program, including the sites it monitors and the hundreds of keywords it looks for. It also reveals the way it assesses threats.

Quote:
The DHS instructed the company to "Monitor public social communications on the Internet." The records list the websites that will be monitored, including the comments sections of [The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, the Huffington Post, the Drudge Report, Wired, and ABC News.]
So you should think about what you post on social networks, esp. Facebook and twitter which they monitor very closely.

Quote:
The 39-page "Analyst's Desktop Binder" used by the department's National Operations Center includes no-brainer words like ""attack," "epidemic" and "Al Qaeda" (with various spellings). But the list also includes words that can be interpreted as either menacing or innocent depending on the context, such as "exercise," "drill," "wave," "initiative," "relief" and "organization."

These terms and others are "broad, vague and ambiguous" and include "vast amounts of First Amendment protected speech that is entirely unrelated to the Department of Homeland Security mission to protect the public against terrorism and disasters," stated the Electronic Privacy Information Center in letter to the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence.

"Sick" is on the list. How many people have ever said something about being "sick" on a social networking site or public forum?

yah, just copy and paste the list onto your FB. Maybe in protest millions of people can do just that to overload their systems. What it amounts to is a bunch of nonsense but it sure would be funny.
