    Put ACLU On Watch List: 20,000 TERRORISTS NOW IN THE USA

    Put ACLU On Watch

    By INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY | Posted Friday, July 25, 2008 4:20 PM PT

    Homeland Security: Forced to defend its growing terrorist watch list, the FBI let slip a chilling fact that should silence ACLU grumblers: America is teeming with 20,000 terrorists.

    After 9/11, federal authorities estimated that as many as 5,000 terrorists were living in the U.S. The new figure is jarring not only because it's four times as large but because it's based on real persons, not estimates.

    It's not something headquarters wanted to publicize. Officials had downplayed the threat so as not to spook the public. The spin had been that Britain has the homegrown problem, not us.

    But that was before the ACLU launched a campaign with the Democrat Congress to demonize the watch list as a Gestapo-like tool. The FBI had no choice but to knock down their myths.

    The ACLU charged that an "out-of-control" FBI is adding mostly innocent people to the list, ballooning it to "over 1 million names." "I doubt this thing would even be effective at catching a real terrorist," ACLU spokesman Barry Steinhardt harrumphed.

    In fact, the list has saved countless lives, according to the head of the FBI's terrorism screening center — an assertion backed up by a recent independent review by the GAO.

    And the watch list monitors only 400,000 people, not a million, says the FBI official, Leonard Boyle. The rest are aliases due to the myriad spellings and variations of Arabic surnames.

    In a rare public appearance on C-Span, Boyle added that the overwhelming share of individuals on the terrorist list are foreigners, while "5% to 6%" of individuals are U.S. citizens or legal residents.

    That still pencils out to at least 20,000 people living in this country right now — at large and on the streets — who have "some relationship with terrorist activity," as Boyle described it.

    They pose a big enough threat for airlines to legally bounce them off planes, and for every law enforcement authority from border agents to local police to detain them for questioning.

    At 20,000 strong, these suspected homegrown terrorists number a full army division. And they don't include the more than 440 active terrorists the Justice Department already has put behind bars since 9/11. Britain, by comparison, is watching just 8,000.

    But never mind all that. The ACLU and its allies on the Hill want to scrap the terrorist watch list and take law enforcement's eye off these potentially dangerous suspects.

    In a perfect world, the ACLU might qualify as a terrorist facilitator deserving of its own spot on the list. ... 9115541217

    Oh yes, the terror watch list is a Gestapo-like tactic. So are the arrests of possible terrorists, because the gov't is violation their freedom of speech if they are prevented from blowing up something, not to mention their pursuit of happiness by possibly killing Americans. The ACLU should be renamed to the Anti-American Civil Liberties Union.

    I think the ACLU has been the biggest contributor of the dangers we face today .

    An known enemy can be observed, but one in disguise is more lethal .

    I have heard that the rope manufactured by the corporate leaders will be the one he ends up getting hanged with .

    They will come to their end but how many of us will go down with them ?

    Don't get me wrong I am all for a Republic, but this ain't no 'Republic' it has been highjacked by crooks in high places . With watchdogs like the ACLU and both parties, imo.

    Peacefully take back your nation or we will all swing with them .
