Dept. of Homeland Security Forced to Release List of Keywords Used to Monitor Social Networking Sites.

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.

The 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’.

Released 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.

The words are included in the department’s 2011 ‘Analyst’s Desktop Binder‘ used by workers at their National Operations Center which instructs workers to identify ‘media reports that reflect adversely on DHS and response activities’.

Department chiefs were forced to release the manual following a House hearing over documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit which revealed how analysts monitor social networks and media organisations for comments that ‘reflect adversely’ on the government.

However they insisted the practice was aimed not at policing the internet for disparaging remarks about the government and signs of general dissent, but to provide awareness of any potential threats.

As well as terrorism, analysts are instructed to search for evidence of unfolding natural disasters, public health threats and serious crimes such as mall/school shootings, major drug busts, illegal immigrant busts.

The list has been posted online by the Electronic Privacy Information Center – a privacy watchdog group who filed a request under the Freedom of Information Act before suing to obtain the release of the documents.

In a letter to the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counter-terrorism and Intelligence, the centre described the choice of words as ‘broad, vague and ambiguous’.

Threat detection: Released 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

They point out that it includes ‘vast amounts of First Amendment protected speech that is entirely unrelated to the Department of Homeland Security mission to protect the public against terrorism and disasters.’

A senior Homeland Security official told the Huffington Post that the manual ‘is a starting point, not the endgame’ in maintaining situational awareness of natural and man-made threats and denied that the government was monitoring signs of dissent.

However the agency admitted that the language used was vague and in need of updating.

Spokesman Matthew Chandler told website: ‘To ensure clarity, as part of … routine compliance review, DHS will review the language contained in all materials to clearly and accurately convey the parameters and intention of the program.’

Domestic Violence and Parental Abduction


Source: Examiner.com

Parental abduction is a severe form of parental alienation and can be prevented with more education provided to the victim and the justice system starting from the police dpeartments, to the staff of the courts and finally the judges.

Men, who believe they are entitled to an on-going relationship with their partners, or that they “own” them, view their partners’ departure as ultimate betrayal which justifies retaliation, including abduction of their biological child(ren).

Bryan Lee McGlothin, was one of these children, abducted by his father at the age of 2. He was taken from town to town, by his father, keeping their whereabouts unknown. Bryan consistently asked about his mother, and where he could find her, but was fed lies continuously by his father. After 30 years away from his mother, Bryan finally reunited with his mother, however, it was not the reunion he had hoped for. His mother, Angie, attempted suicide, and instead of dying, became severly brain damaged.

Not only did Bryan have to endure reuniting with his mother in this condition, but also suffered the many negative efects that happen to adult children of parental abduction. Many of these negative effects include: depression, anxiety, lack of trust, low self -esteem, guilt, feeling vulnerable and troubled relationships. Bryan has written a book called, “Have You Seen My Mother,” emerging from  years of research since finding his mother after 30 years apart.
