1 in 300 US residents are terrorists, according to gubmint - Boing Boing

Now I understand why we have to do away with that pesky Bill of Rights -- there are over 900,000 terrorists on US soil. The ACLU has a counter to show the latest number.

"At the current rate of growth, the U.S. watch lists will contain a million records by July. If there were a million terrorists in this country, our cities would be in ruins" said Barry Steinhardt, director of the ACLU's Technology and Liberty Program. "The absurd bloating of the terrorist watch lists is yet another example of how incompetence by our security apparatus threatens our rights without offering any real security."
