A Handy Comma Delimited List of Homeland Security Key Words For Home Use

[Editor's note: “I looked through the list of keywords and a strong percentage of them are words that I've used in various posts on my site and others over the years, in articles both critical and in favor of governmental or business policy.

It would be difficult to write about politics, current events or publish a news story without the normal and casual use of most of these keywords. I can only conclude that we've arrived at a state of almost unimaginable paranoia and the country is finally, irredeemably insane.

If the US was a magazine I'd promptly cancel my subscription.”

Below the fold is a comma delimited list of the keywords from the 39-page "Analyst’s Desktop Binder.” Feel free to copy and paste them into your blog or use them as tags in your posts. You can also use them in family letters, grocery lists, birthday cards or anything you want to draw attention to.  Enjoy.  Bob Higgins]

This from the Huffington Post by :

Ever complain on Facebook that you were feeling “sick?” Told your friends to “watch” a certain TV show? Left a comment on a media website about government “pork?”

If you did any of those things, or tweeted about your recent vacation in “Mexico” or a shopping trip to “Target,” the Department of Homeland Security may have noticed.

In the latest revelation of how the federal government is monitoring social media and online news outlets, the Electronic Privacy Information Center has posted online a 2011 Department of Homeland Security manual that includes hundreds of key words (such as those above) and search terms used to detect possible terrorism, unfolding natural disasters and public health threats. The center, a privacy watchdog group, filed a Freedom of Information Act request and then sued to obtain the release of the documents.

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.”

    I don’t think so, there are some multiple word phrases but you’re welcome to add commas where ever you like. Commas are free after all.
