Estimated Numbers: Targeted Individuals & the Terrorist Watchlist


Estimated Numbers: Targeted Individuals & the Terrorist Watchlist

According to a civil lawsuit filed in 2014, the FBI refers to Targeted Individuals as “Non-Investigative Subjects,” and lists them on the Terrorist Watchlist. The U.S. government added more than 1.5 million names to its Terrorist Watchlist in the five year period between 2009 and 2014. They are adding 300,000 names each year. This concerns many human rights organizations, who say that the government has become too aggressive in its efforts to keep the American public safe. By 2018, we can estimate that about 3.4 million names are on the list, many of them American citizens. One of the issues that came out from the lawsuit was the FBI's nomenclature of “Non-Investigative Subjects.” If someone has not committed a crime, and they are not under investigation – why are they on the list? For Targeted Individuals, this means something. They already know they are not being investigated for a crime, they have been targeted for an illegal, Deep State program that involves stalking, harassment, and microwave satellite attacks. This is the list where the names are held and local police departments have been instructed to refer all such contacts to the FBI and CIA. The police chiefs of most departments in America are trained by the FBI. In the 2014 lawsuit, according to attorney, Gadeir Abbas, the FBI is “literally putting people they decided not to investigate on the federal government watch list.” According to the FBI, about 5% of the terror watchlist is U.S. citizens, and the majority of those are not being investigated for any crime. We can deduce by 2018, about 170,000 U.S. citizens are Targeted Individuals. If it continues to grow at this rate, about 15,000 are added each year. “The CIA and FBI are behind most, if not all terrorism,” - Ted Gunderson, former FBI Chief.
