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.
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'.
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.
