Watch what you say


The Daily Mail:

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.”
"Pork” is obvious: Just think of all those right-wing extremist "Porkbusters,” right...?

The Mail’s story has the complete list.  For future reference (and as a service to readers who might want to maintain a low profile), I’ve linked it in the sidebar: You’ll find The DHS Suspicious Words List in the Useful Stuff section.
