WTF do they think they are doing?
Certainly not protecting the Vaterland are they?

DHS= Dept. of Homeland Suppression.
Very well put point.Wasting our intelligence resources on spying on innocent civilians while the Chinese just walked off with billions worth of our secret research and development projects.What's wrong with this picture?

You do realize that if you were to use those words innocently you are at most at risk of boring an analyst?

Oops, did I just do it?

I don't think dhs would be worried about this site so much since its the number #1 agency's choice in gathering intel.

Patterns of word use, sentence structure, frequency of words, geographic origin of the words, context, target intended audience, combined with social profile of the poster, are all used by the supercomputer before the red light blips. Detailed profiles can easily be built by picking bits of information from all over the place. Social media, web searches, collected bots....all hang flash on your digital skeleton. All data in and out of every data carrier is screened...yes, your data too.

If "THEY" monitor your cell and your E-Mails then why the need for a list? Common sense tells you "THEY" monitor everything on web forums like ATS, so it is obvious with a list like this I doubt if you could converse about anything without using at least one of these words.

Like someone said earlier if someone posted on a forum and did not use one of these words I would think the bells and whistles would go of. You would really have to work at it and it would probably stand out.

How about pig Latin, anyone remember the old days?................ombay

They monitor all communications regardless.

I bet I got their full attention now!

They didn't want to get audited

They also missed out:

tremblor (slight earthquake)
drizzle (light rain)
muggy (when the air is really humid and all you can do is sit down and sleep when you get home, then you wake up looking "shattered")

slush (half ice half water)
snush (snow and slush)
fog (like bathroom condensation)

tropical sh*t-storm (when things go badly)
bush-fire (like wildfire)

We need to incorporate this into a contest in the writing forums.

Whoever can use the most words in a coherent story wins.

Not really but that is funny.

But Really, Ashley... what does the winner get?

An all expense paid one-way to TelAviv? Sounds kinda nasty...

EDIT: I really do need to contr to the OP.
I'm much more concerned now with the people that aren't getting
monitored. Think about it.... the personality type that would be ignorant
enough (to believe they aren't getting monitored) is probably also sufficiently
hypnotic and susceptible at the same time to be a real security risk.
Lawrence Harvey, Jack of Diamonds, Angela L.-- some assembly required.
I don't know about you, but I'd sure hate to wake up 350 miles away in a
$12 motel with half my clip gone and a coppery taste in my mouth.

Between this list,phones and the internet.
Along with Obama's happy go lucky drone program,maybe the gov can just go with this...

I guess what worries me the most about this list is not the words that are on it, but the words that they have "conveniently" left out. just something that got me thinking as I was reading through the list is that a lot of the so-called major hacking group names have been left of the cyber security list, and how they've also left out conveniently again all of the words that so called Conspiracy nuts as they would label us often use. I'm not going to go into great detail as to all the different words I think that they intentionally left off of here or why, but I think most of you out there know what I'm driving at here. all of the "real" target words, and phrases have been deliberately left off this list. this tells me a couple of possibilities. certain groups and or agencies that are working against our government that have been left off of this list are either of no concern to our government because they are in fact false flag operations that are in control by are very government therefore they have no need to have trigger words to monitor them, because after all if they were the ones behind some of these agencies or groups then why would they need to monitor them. I have a couple other guesses or hypothesis as to why this list is actually so short but if a lot of you deep thinkers out there see what I'm getting at here then you can use your own imaginations and let them run wild.

this list to me is nothing but a bait-and-switch scam. trust me, they have super computers 20 plus years more than stars that are running programs and algorithms that monitor tens of thousands more words and trigger phrases than this short little list would have us believe.

Seriously. Think about it.

Seriosly, though, how is TORNADO a word that garners attention!! You can not make one , lol

The FBI itself is going to get more flags than anyone else.

Between encryption, learning an odd language and a lot of other things I can think of just off the top of my head (using different fonts, italics, etc) to screw with them, this is going to be a joke of a multi-billion dollar clusterfuuk.

I keep wondering why they're building this in Utah. Are they only going to hire squeaky-clean Mormons who are clueless to the real ways of the world? Cuz a couple months of working for the spooks and they're gonna get an earful. How are you gonna keep them down on the temple farm when they get a load of what going on all over the place? Will any of the good Mormon mommies and daddies want their white shirt and skinny black tie kids working for Spook Central?

And is there a massive employment lawsuit waiting to happen if they refuse to hire us nonreligious, Constitution-believing folk? What's the security clearance like for this job? Do you have to be referred by Mitt Romney?

Inquiring, only slightly paranoid minds want to know.

I don't think they will hire from the general population for this facility - the ones that are will be compartmentalized and probably restricted to menial custodial tasks.

They will recruit/train and offer relocation, and they will come. There may even be special communities that spring up whose sole purpose is to provide housing for the employees.

It is, after all, how our nuclear weapons got built.

How assinine.... symptoms really? How many people go to WebMd and look up symptoms everyday?

ElPaso? Ice? Food poisoning?

These words are just an excuse, nothing more. Putting everyday common place words on a list is what they do so they can secure their excuse to monitor anyone and everyone whenever they want.

Any of you guys-n-gals here who are at all tech-savvy, would seriously fall over laughing if you only understood the level of FAIL of the DHS organization. Think of them kind of like the more cop-like cousins of the Transportation Security Administration (the blue-garbed assholes confiscating people's homemade fruitcakes and terrorizing children at airports).[color=#de3411]§
These words are just a synonym guide for the low-level analyst (people who are paid to read CNN and The Huffington Post from their MMC cubicle. The list was FOIA'd along with this: 2011 (REDACTED) Analyst Desktop Binder.[color=#21de32]*

While my services are more costly $$$ than your budget allows, at least hire someone to tell you what really stupid, mission-critical security slip-up was made by your redactionist in the document ^above.
You're welcome.

NOTE: I am not referring to the FBI or USSS, which are agencies under the Department of Homeland Security umbrella, —these agencies have specialists which do, on the whole, have their act together, in a rather old-school way. I am merely referring to the "new DHS" agency, as is commonly understood.
