Department of Homeland Security forced to release list following freedom of information request

  • Agency insists it only looks for evidence of genuine threats to the U.S. and not for signs of general dissent

Revealing: A list of keywords used by government analysts to scour the internet for evidence of threats to the U.S. has been released under the Freedom of Information Act

Revealing: A list of keywords used by government analysts to scour the internet for evidence of threats to the U.S. has been released under the Freedom of Information Act

The Department of Homeland Security has been forced to release a list of keywords and phrases it uses to monitor social networking sites and online media for signs of terrorist or other threats against the U.S.

The intriguing the list includes obvious choices such as ‘attack’, ‘Al Qaeda’, ‘terrorism’ and ‘dirty bomb’ alongside dozens of seemingly innocent words like ‘pork’, ‘cloud’, ‘team’ and ‘Mexico’.

Released under a freedom of information request, the information sheds new light on how government analysts are instructed to patrol the internet searching for domestic and external threats.

The words are included in the department’s 2011 Analyst’s Desktop Binder‘ used by workers at their National Operations Center which instructs workers to identify ‘media reports that reflect adversely on DHS and response activities’.

Department chiefs were forced to release the manual following a House hearing over documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit which revealed how analysts monitor social networks and media organisations for comments that ‘reflect adversely’ on the government.

However they insisted the practice was aimed not at policing the internet for disparaging remarks about the government and signs of general dissent, but to provide awareness of any potential threats.

 As well as terrorism, analysts are instructed to search for evidence of unfolding natural disasters, public health threats and serious crimes such as mall/school shootings, major drug busts, illegal immigrant busts.

The list has been posted online by the Electronic Privacy Information Center – a privacy watchdog group who filed a request under the Freedom of Information Act before suing to obtain the release of the documents.

In a letter to the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counter-terrorism and Intelligence, the centre described the choice of words as ‘broad, vague and ambiguous’.

Threat detection: Released under a freedom of information request, the information sheds new light on how government analysts are instructed to patrol the internet searching for domestic and external threats

They point out that it includes ‘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.’

A senior Homeland Security official told the Huffington Post that the manual ‘is a starting point, not the endgame’ in maintaining situational awareness of natural and man-made threats and denied that the government was monitoring signs of dissent.

However the agency admitted that the language used was vague and in need of updating.

Spokesman Matthew Chandler told website: ‘To ensure clarity, as part of … routine compliance review, DHS will review the language contained in all materials to clearly and accurately convey the parameters and intention of the program.’

      You don’t have to be a threat to be a victim of this. This is what we are trying to wake people up to. They consider every citizen a threat. The dictators don’t want the sleeping sheeple to awaken and discover they are slaves in thought and deed.

      I’m not a threat so i have nothing to worry about, said the christian as the Bolsheviks came.

      I’m not a threat so i have nothing to worry about, said the iraqi family sitting down for dinner as their house gets blown up by the good guys.

      I can keep listing thousands of examples of governments murdering people for the sole reason that they can, but people will still be in denial. Remember, to have your head in the sand, you first have to be on your knees.

      With that list I can’t type a complete sentence without using

    • HereAmI

      For our friend Sniper, I think he is suggesting that Christians are really stupid and are in mass denial. Not so. Or at least, no more so than your average Joe. I am a Christian, and I know what’s going on at least as much as anyone else, and I spend a lot of time on my knees, and do you know, it is so comforting to do that, because it allows me to enter into the presence of God. If you recall, when Christ was crucified, the veil of the Temple rent from top to bottom, opening the way into the Holy of Holies. I know that He will protect me, because nothing ever happens unless He allows it to. If God be for us, who can be against us? And lest we forget, there is a lot more to vision than the messages which pass between eyeball and brain.
      But the obvious thing that has been missed here, is that because most people can’t spell to save themselves, a list which looks for these words in people’s communications will not pick up most of the so-called threats. And even the people writing the list don’t know how to spell either. Look at how they spell “lightning”, for example.
      Pathetic ! And the word which contains the biggest threat to world peace and harmony isn’t even here!
      And what might that be ?
      TALMUD.

      @hereaml actually i was pointing out a historical fact, that millions of christians were murdered in the hands of the jewish Bulsheviks. That doesn’t mean there aren’t a majority of idiot christians who still believe the fairy tale of the Creator of the entire universe having a “chosen people.” How stupid can you be? OF COURSE THEY SAY THE ARE THE CHOSEN, THEY WROTE THE DAMN BOOK!!!!

      The Daily Mail, England had the list in an article-I sent it to many friends. Today That article has been removed from the Daily Mail–along with all other articles relating to Homeland Security. I printed this list off before writing this comment. What is going on? Is the watch list begun? I wish someone would write a story and use every word listed.And send it out and ask everyone send to others, etc, etc.

    • NWO for Dummies.

      Definition of Terrorism.

      Anything that threatens the ownership of the entire world by the banks.

      Definition of War on Terror.

      Wars against nations/peoples that will not submit to slavery and ownership by the Western banks.

      Thats why the American public is also a target of the War on Terror. Hence the Department of Homeland Security to bring you all into line, or else.

      All I can say is ; – bring it on.

    • NWO for Dummies.

      domestic security words used in order for easy checking for my biscuit

      assassination is an attack on domestic security. drills and exercises by the cops, ie. law enforcement authorities will help them render disaster assistance and disaster management.
      dndo [domestic nuclear detection office] may ensure national preparedness. then again they may not.
      mitigation and prevention response and recovery of dirty bombs constitutes domestic nuclear detection
      emergency management and emergency response depends heavily on the first responder to homeland security bogus attacks
      maritime domestic awareness [mda] is an essential national preparedness initiative
      militia shooting, shots fired causing evacuation,deaths, hostage takingh and even explosion, explosive explosion that is, as in boom, will result in police action and disaster medical assistance teams [dmat] response to the organized crime gangs
      national security in a state of emergency will get pissed if there is a security breach, threat or standoff with swat
      screening and lockdown of all inmates (we mean citizens) will occur if a bomb crashes in our office and looting and a riot occurs in the ‘hood.

      fake president will perform an emergency landing with a fake pipe bomb where he likes it in response to this sort of incident at our facility
      he will love the above

      note;
      hard to see how actual terrorists would use these words, but they are not looking for actual terrorists but those who would prevent THEIR acts of terrorism, it seems to me, from the tenor of this list.

    • Fred C Dobbs

      I didn’t look but is eat me on the list?

    • Scodd

      Wow! This posting has brought everyone out, with the full gamut of Christian nuttoes and the conspiracy dudes.

      Firstly, a little note to Christians. Jesus Christ, or Yeshua the Annointed, was born a jew, lived a jew and died a jew. He did not worship himself, nor did he call anyone to do so. He was not a Christian. Prove me wrong!

      Secondly, the sytem does not use the word “Oracle” which is exceedingly strange. Oracle was a project that was worked on in the 1970s, the idea being any keywords that were detected would result in a telephone conversation being recorded, and sent to the security services, except….

      It never recorded anything useful at all, and required the hiring of thousands of idiots to listen to millions of hours of phone calls for NO BENEFIT WHATSOEVER.

      So given that training in Homeland Security is to get out a couple of beers, watch a Bruce Willis vid and tell everyone wot yo would have done in the movie is even a more tragic waste of time – and beer – sacred to us Aussies.

      Given that the Head of Fema’s secretary was more interested in booking a good restaurant – all the ones she had in a guide were flooded out in New Orleans – it would appear that once again the standard of the US Intelligence services has not changed since the CIA briefing on the day of the Shah of Irans overthrow – “Things are fine!”

      In conclusion if yo have a dozen pieces of info come in, and ten thousand agents forced to write an essay, don’t be suprised when things are “Confirmed” by “Consensus”.

    • Mellissa

      All I can say is that by spreading this ‘list’ around there will be more work for them to weed out serious problems with the people just trying to drive them bonkers. Also so many of the words by themselves can be used in so many different ways, not just to conspire in one way or another.

      How they justify half of them I really do not know.
