Homeland Security words to avoid

"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 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'.....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".

Keywords include:

malware
exercise
prevention
San Diego
virus
trojan
social media
target
extremism
fundamentals
pork
incident
cloud
home grown

Does the request ask that all the keywords be listed...I see a lot of words that various organizations use not listed.
Does the "ask" mean E-mail scanned words.
I don't believe they were forced or revealed all the keywords for that article under the freedom of information act.
Why would they release every keyword search list, to be avoided.
They probably go further by now and search for more or less dependent on location, religion and words.

If we can get a complete list, people can start using the new e-mail signature I devised. I appended my own list of words people with their politics should look for to give them a hand.

I guess, since this is a Security forum and those words are used frequently here, we're all on the DHS watchlist and can expect extra special treatment by the TSA.

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.'

The what? Wasn't that rescinded?

I was recently in San Diego getting some exercise by chasing a cloud when I got hungry and stopped for some home grown pork. However I got involved in an incident where I was the target of a virus, Clearly my fundamentals of malware prevention that I read on social media were flawed. In the end I got a trojan. I might have to engage in extremism to prevent further infections.

There, that should do it.

No, it's okay. He misspelled the word 'were'. That indicates that the message text was taken from an NSA tutorial used for training purposes.

Still, I'd hate to be one of the six trainees that got that version.

Well that should give the DHS/TSA/FBI/CIA/NSA computers something to do

Its lucky they have computers as I'm sure they can't read. Clearly they haven't read (or understood if they managed it) The Constitution.

I don't need to be kept safe from terrorists. I need to be kept safe from these retards.

"lightening" may not be the word of which you're thinking, but I can assure you that it is a proper word spelled as shown. As for why the DHS/TSA needs to monitor its use..........

examples from dictionary.com:

The goal is to increase the chances that students will succeed, and for the majority of them that means lightening the load.

The air felt balmy and fresh, nothing but dark blue calm sea and lightening (growing brighter) sky.

Over-the-counter creams are available for lightening the skin.

I'm aware of that, thanks. Within the context that DHS is using it in that list ("Weather"), it's just spelled wrong.

Re: Homeland Security words to avoid

Whenever a certain friend of mine and I have a conversation over the phone, and we realize that we have probably used one of the hot-button terms for HS monitoring, we always make sure we politely say "hello" to any agencies that might be reviewing the call and wish them a pleasant day.

Those searches require tax money

I don't care much about the list of words, but rather about the impressive list of "security" departments in the US (listed in the document). They all require funds (including for meaningless searches for those words). No wonder that every year the government becomes close to bankrupt and asks for additional funding for them. And that is not a fun...

Re: Homeland Security words to avoid

well its from the Dailymail so trust of it is slim. but...

Some strange malware got onto my computer while I went out to exercise because its good for prevention of heart attacks especially when you only buy Pork from the Target in San Diego. Cooking fundamentals show that home grown fruits are best, but a garden might cause an incident with the HOA who will bring about their extremism in a nastygram by morning. Some members might even go to the cloud to defame your idea on social networking sites. However one can fight back with either a trojan or a virus.

The Above was not meant to make any sense period other than to use every word in that watch list.

And our DHS proscribed threat vocabulary just keeps on growing...

pork = terrorist dietary term
exercise = terrorist physical activity
cloud = terrorist meteorological term
home grown = terrorist organic gardening term
fundamentals = terrorist educational term ("It's time we get back to fundamentals. Gentlemen, this is a bomb...")

Maybe, just maybe, bad spellings were included because that is a mistake people they want to monitor regularly make.
