Everyone is a Terrorist

1,600 are suggested daily for FBI's list
Number of names on terrorist watch list at 400,000, agency says

The U.S. intelligence community suggested on a daily basis that 1,600 people qualified for the list because they presented a "reasonable suspicion."

The FBI doesn't even need initial information that a person or group is engaged in wrongdoing before it can open a preliminary investigation.

In 2006, approximately 219,000 tips from the public led to the FBI's determination that there were 2,800 counterterrorism threats and suspicious incidents that year. Regardless of the reporting source, FBI policy requires that each threat or suspicious incident should receive some level of review and assessment to determine "the potential nexus to terrorism."
