WASHINGTON — The government's terrorist watch list has hit 1 million entries, up 32% since 2007.
Federal data show the rise comes despite the removal of 33,000 entries last year by the FBI's Terrorist Screening Center in an effort to purge the list of outdated information and remove people cleared in investigations.
It's unclear how many individuals those 33,000 records represent — the center often uses multiple entries, or "identities," for a person to reflect variances in name spellings or other identifying information. The remaining million entries represent about 400,000 individuals, according to the center.

I'm a former Airline pilot.....
Well, I've traveled well, for the last few years....
I am NOT being sarcastic. Airline pilots and Flight Attendents are STILL required to remove their coats....to pass 'security'....how stupid is that???
When....and hold on to your coats....most of the workers who are at the airport, just use their card to bypass 'security'.
