Proving the Feds are even busier monitoring (http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2012/02/27/official-list-words-feds-monitored-social-neworking-sites-86741/) social media than perhaps you imagined, the watchdog group Electronic Privacy Information Center has posted the Department of Homeland Security “Analyst’s Desktop Binder,” a 39-page manual (http://www.scribd.com/doc/82701103/Analyst-Desktop-Binder-REDACTED) listing hundreds of seemingly innocuous words - along with some obviously problematic ones like Al Qaeda, though why any Al Qaeda operative would actually use them is beyond us - that could get you into trouble.
