U.S. terror database under rights scrutiny

U.S. rights groups are questioning the validity of a growing federal list of terror suspects that contains at least 235,000 names...

"This really confirms the long-standing fear that this list is inaccurate and ultimately ineffective as an anti-terrorism tool," David Sobel, senior counsel with the Electronic Frontier Foundation advocacy group told the Post.

He said the numbers "suggest a staggeringly high rate of false positives with respect to the identification of supposed terrorists."
