The Terror Watch List Database’s Troubles ContinueCASE STUDYn the aftermath of the 9-11 attacks, the FBI’sTerrorist Screening Center, or TSC, wasestablished to consolidate information aboutsuspected terrorists from multiple governmentagencies into a single list to enhance inter-agencycommunication. A database of suspected terroristsknown as the terrorist watch list was created.Multiple U.S. government agencies had beenmaintaining separate lists and these agencies lackeda consistent process to share relevant information.Records in the TSC database contain sensitive butunclassified information on terrorist identities, suchas name and date of birth, that can be shared withother screening agencies. Classified informationabout the people in the watch list is maintained inother law enforcement and intelligence agency data-bases. Records for the watchlist database are pro-vided by two sources: The National CounterterrorismCenter (NCTC) managed by the Office of theDirector of National Intelligence provides identifyinginformation on individuals with ties to internationalterrorism. The FBI provides identifying informationon individuals with ties to purely domestic terrorism.These agencies collect and maintain terroristinformation and nominate individuals for inclusionin the TSC’s consolidated watch list. They arerequired to follow strict procedures established bythe head of the agency concerned and approved bythe U.S. Attorney General. TSC staff must revieweach record submitted before it is added to thedatabase. An individual will remain on the watch listuntil the respective department or agency thatnominated that person to the list determines that theperson should be removed from the list and deletedfrom the databaseThe TSC watch list database is updated daily withnew nominations, modifications to existing records,and deletions. Since its creation, the list hasballooned to 400,000 people, recorded as 1.1 millionnames and aliases, and is continuing to grow at a rateof 200,000 records each year. Information on the listis distributed to a wide range of government agencysystems for use in efforts to deter or detect themovements of known or suspected terrorists.Recipient agencies include the FBI, CIA, NationalSecurity Agency (NSA), Transportation SecurityAdministration (TSA), Department of HomelandSecurity, State Department, Customs and BorderI240Part TwoInformation Technology InfrastructureProtection, Secret Service, U.S. Marshals Service, andthe White House.
