Published on Aug 5, 2014

The world is watching to see if a 72-hour ceasefire between Israel and Hamas holds. Several prior failed ceasefire attempts resulted in the continuation of Israeli strikes on Gaza that have killed a large number of civilians.

Of the 680,000 individuals on the government’s Terrorist Screening Database watchlist, over 280,000 are classified as having “no recognized terrorist group affiliation,” according to newly released documents leaked to The Intercept.

Previous reporting in July by the same publication revealed that names can be added to the database based on a mere suspicion of a terrorist link with no hard evidence, and the list can be accessed by local law enforcement, federal agents, foreign governments and private contractors.

RT’s Ameera David and Tyrel Ventura break down the numbers and take a look at the startling implications of this new information.

The policy may not have made Union Street Guest House any money, but it did earn them a 1.5-star rating on Yelp and hundreds of reviews warning potential visitors to steer clear.

Owner/manager Chris Wagoner, who is also a local politician, responded that the rule was “put on our site as a tongue-in-cheek response to a wedding many years ago” and was meant to be taken down and was never enforced.”
