Who is watching the watchers?
I realize I could be put on the terrorist watchlist just for sharing this, since that seems to be the criteria for so doing. A Twitter or Facebook post contrary to security policy, even without any corroborating evidence or any connections to known or suspected terrorists, can land you on the list. All that is required is "reasonable suspicion," which means whatever they want it to mean depending on your politics. I imagine questioning such fascist national security procedures is in itself "reasonable suspicion?" Just like the officer that murdered Michael Brown had "reasonable suspicion" that he was really armed by just being a big, black teen. WTF happened to this country?
