Watch out! No! Over there! Or there! There!

Ever feel like everybody’s trying to kill you?

Well, according to the National Counterterrorism Center, your concern may be justified.

Speaking before the House Committee on Homeland Security earlier this week, the center’s director, Michael Leiter (no apparent relation to Al Leiter), told the committee that 350 people a day are added to the terrorist watch list.

That’s 127,750 people a year.

And even though some 27,000 people have been removed from the list over time, there were still about 500,000 on the list as of January 2009.

So, maybe not everyone’s trying to kill you but, according to the government, it certainly seems a lot of people are.

I think I’ll stay indoors today.

  1. …maybe they pull the names out of the phone book, just to keep their jobs…..how many government workers does it take to process 14 potential terrorists per hour 24/7/365….

    …let’s see a map of where these people are located….

  2. Wait, how many card-carrying Communists are in the Defense Department?

    This is Manchurian Candidate baloney at its finest.

    hooray for America!
