“A Web site operated by the Alabama Department of Homeland Security identified gay rights organizations, anti-abortion groups, environmentalists and people opposed to genetically-altered foods among those who could be classified as terrorists.”

“Allison Neal, attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama, says she has looked at parts of the Web site and is concerned about anything that pinpoints people “exercising their constitutional right to protest” as potential terrorists.”

    I thought the P.A.T.R.I.O.T act made this a grey area, and that’s one of the many controversial acts of this new policy. People that are simply “exercising their constutional rights can now be classified as potential terrorists/terrorist organizations under the P.A.T.R.I.O.T. act. I didn’t read the article yet, but this immediately made me think of the whole controversy surrounding said “act”.
