AUMF: Authorization for Use of Military Force For Grandparents

This message is for American grandparents and the topic is:

AUMF: AUMF 2001: Public Law 107-40:
AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE

We invite you to join the leaderless and loose-knit bipartisan/nonpartisan coalition of Democratic, Republican, third-party, independent, apolitical and even anti-political American citizens rallying behind “H.R. 198: Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force”, a bill now before the United States Congress which will hobble the Imperial Presidency created under Dubya and Darth by the post 9/11 AUMF, the USA Patriot Act, the REAL ID Act and hundreds of Executive Orders and National Security Letters … expanded under Odrona the Indefinite Detainer by NDAA 2012, H.R. 347 and H.R. 658 plus hundreds more Executive Orders and National Security Letters … and culminating in the creation of a vast Military/Intelligence/HomelandSecurity/CounterTerrorism Industrial Complex that operates above and outside of the law, unaccountable to the People, impenetrable by the Freedom of Information Act, and unanswerable to our courts.

The Imperial Presidency headed by corporate fascist puppet Barack Obama claims the right under NDAA 2012 to indefinitely detain American citizens on American soil without charge or trial, and the right under AUMF 2001 to kill those same American citizens with domestic drone strikes and without due process of law. That means that either their targets or the collateral damage from their attacks could include you, your children or your grandchildren.

Your innocent grandchildren are probably too young and naive to fight for their freedom or protect themselves, and your children are probably too self-involved or techno-stupefied to recognize the threat to their lives and liberties. That leaves you, the grandparent, as their only hope for salvation.

The grandparents of America allowed all of this to happen. The grandparents of America cowered when they should have asked questions … allowed themselves to be distracted when they should have demanded answers … and sat back and watched television as our Constitution and Bill Of Rights were decimated, and our once-great Republic slid from Freedom to Fascism. The grandparents of America danced when they should have been demonstrating, and now it is time they pay the fiddler.

If you are an American grandparent above the age of 50, then you know what I say is true. And if you truly love your grandchildren, then you should know what you must do. If you are not sure where to begin, you can start here:

NDAA 2013: Drones, Permanent War And Indefinite Detention Without Charge Or Trial For American Citizens On American Soil

NDAA 2013

While mainstream media keeps the Sheeple distracted with Christmas classics and inconsistent reporting about killings in Connecticut, Amerika’s corporate fascist puppet Congress quietly hacks away at habeus corpus.

“In recent decades we have lost sight of the historic achievement that empowered the individual. The religious, legal and political roots of this great achievement are no longer reverently taught in high schools, colleges and universities or respected by our government. The voices that reach us through the millennia and connect us to our culture are being silenced by ‘political correctness’ and ‘the war on terror.’ Prayer has been driven from schools and Christian religious symbols from public life. Constitutional protections have been diminished by hegemonic political ambitions. Indefinite detention, torture, and murder are now acknowledged practices of the United States government. The historic achievement of due process has been rolled back. Tyranny has re-emerged.”–Paul Craig Roberts

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2012/12/23/the-greatest-gift-for-all-2/

“Over the past two years, the Obama administration has been secretly developing a new blueprint for pursuing terrorists, a next-generation targeting list called the ‘disposition matrix’… Although the matrix is a work in progress, the effort to create it reflects a reality setting in among the nation’s counterterrorism ranks: The United States’ conventional wars are winding down, but the government expects to continue adding names to kill or capture lists for years… The Obama administration has touted its successes against the terrorist network, formally acknowledging for the first time the United States’ use of armed drones. Less visible is the extent to which Obama has institutionalized the highly classified practice of targeted killing, transforming ad-hoc elements into a counterterrorism infrastructure capable of sustaining a seemingly PERMANENT WAR.”–Greg Miller

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/plan-for-hunting-terrorists-signals-us-intends-to-keep-adding-names-to-kill-lists/2012/10/23/4789b2ae-18b3-11e2-a55c-39408fbe6a4b_story.html

“[T]he legal foundation for U.S. counterterrorism strategy is partially based on “the Congressional authorization to use military force” (AUMF) that was passed after 9/11… Specifically it seems to be based on an interpretation of the AUMF that was “reaffirmed” by the indefinite detention clause of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)… This explains why Obama is fighting so hard to keep the indefinite detention clause in effect… In court the government argued that the indefinite detention clause is simply a “reaffirmation” of the Authorization Use Of Military Force (AUMF), which gives the president authority “to use all necessary and appropriate force against those … [who] aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001 or harbored such organizations or persons.” In the NDAA lawsuit, the government argued that the NDAA §1021 is simply an ‘affirmation’ or ‘reaffirmation’ of the AUMF… But the NDAA adds language to the AUMF when it says ‘The President also has the authority to detain persons who were part of or substantially supported, Taliban or al-Qaida forces or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, INCLUDING ANY PERSON WHO HAS COMMITTED A BELLIGERENT ACT, or has directly supported hostilities, in the aid of such enemy forces.’ That extra part is what Judge Katherine Forrest ruled unconstitutionally vague.”–Michael Kelley

“It may seem like imprisoning an American citizen without charges or trial transgresses against the United States Constitution and basic norms of Western justice dating back to the Magna Carta… It may seem like reiterating the right to due process contained in the 5th Amendment would be uncontroversial… It may seem like a United States senator would be widely ridiculed for suggesting that American citizens can be imprisoned indefinitely without chargers or trial, and that if numerous U.S. senators took that position, the press would treat the issue with at least as much urgency as “the fiscal cliff” or the possibility of a new assault weapons bill or likely nominees for Cabinet posts… It may seem like the American citizens who vocally fret about the importance of adhering to the text of the Constitution would object as loudly as anyone to the prospect of indefinite detention… But it isn’t so.”–Conor Friedersdorf

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2012/12/scandal-alert-congress-is-quietly-abandoning-the-5th-amendment/266498/

“Lawmakers charged with merging the House and Senate versions of the National Defense Authorization Act decided on Tuesday to drop a provision that would have explicitly barred the military from holding American citizens and permanent residents in indefinite detention without trial as terrorism suspects, according to Congressional staff members familiar with the negotiations.”–Charlie Savage

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/19/us/politics/congressional-committee-is-said-to-drop-ban-on-indefinite-detention-of-citizens.html

“Over the past year I and other plaintiffs including Noam Chomsky and Daniel Ellsberg have pressed a lawsuit in the federal courts to nullify Section 1021(b)(2) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). This egregious section, which permits the government to use the military to detain U.S. citizens, strip them of due process and hold them indefinitely in military detention centers, could have been easily fixed by Congress. The Senate and House had the opportunity this month to include in the 2013 version of the NDAA an unequivocal statement that all U.S. citizens would be exempt from 1021(b)(2), leaving the section to apply only to foreigners. But restoring due process for citizens was something the Republicans and the Democrats, along with the White House, refused to do. The fate of some of our most basic and important rights—ones enshrined in the Bill of Rights as well as the Fourth and Fifth amendments of the Constitution—will be decided in the next few months in the courts. If the courts fail us, a gulag state will be cemented into place.”–Chris Hedges

Undeserved: Bushbamney’s Nobel Peace Prize, Peres’ Medal of Freedom, Sarsak’s Starvation in Indefinite Detention

Undeserved Obama Peres Sarsak

Undeserving Nobel Peace Prize recipient Obama awards Medal of Freedom to fellow war criminal Peres while soccer player Mahmoud Sarsak starves in Israeli jail.

UNDESERVED: BUSHBAMNEY’S NOBEL PEACE PRIZE, PERES’ MEDAL OF FREEDOM, SARSAK’S STARVATION IN INDEFINITE DETENTION

In a cruel twist of irony, Israeli President Shimon Peres was honored Wednesday night [6/13/2012] with the “Presidential Medal of Freedom” at a lavish White House feast while Mahmoud Sarsak, rising Palestinian soccer star, nears death by starvation. Sarsak is now on his 87th day of hunger strike to demand the basic human freedoms denied him by Peres’ government. To add insult to injury, Shimon Peres used this opportunity to present Obama with a petition to free an Israeli spy, Jonathan Pollard, who was caught leaking Pentagon secrets.

Peres is a man of extensive military and even insurgent background, who adopted religious views more extreme than the rest of his community. Peres has been quoted as saying that, as a child in Poland, he smashed his parents’ radio because they were listening during Sabbath. He joined the Haganah at a young age, an armed Jewish militia responsible for massacres, mass displacement and other human rights abuses. After the establishment of the state of Israel, Peres was in charge of the government’s weapons dealing. He was a fierce advocate of settlement activity, especially in his early career. He has been Minister of state, defense, communication, transportation and immigrant absorption, Prime Minister and is currently President. In his political career he has overseen massacres, wars, occupation, discrimination, human rights abuses, the breaking of political treaties and spearheaded Israel’s nuclear proliferation. His government currently detains Mahmoud Sarsak and over 500 other Palestinian political prisoners without charge or trial, against international human rights law.

According to his family, Mahmoud Sarsak had never cared about politics and spent all his waking moments thinking about and playing soccer. The Sarsaks are refugees from the city of Ashdod (approximately 20 miles south of Tel Aviv) but Mahmoud grew up in a refugee camp in southern Gaza. As a very young child, he excelled at playing soccer and by eleven he was already representing Palestine in the Youth Olympic Games in Tehran. He played on several teams including the Gaza Youth Sports Club and Rafah Sports Club. Due to the limited resources in the southern Gaza Strip, Sarsak moved to the north to play professionally. Soon outgrowing the Gazan league, Sarsak was selected to join one of the leading West Bank clubs. In 2009, he received the permits that Israel requires to go from one Palestinian territory to another and headed off to the West Bank to realize his dreams. Without any warning or explanation, Sarsak was arrested en route by the Israeli military. From his 2009 arrest until today, his peak athletic years have been wasted in Israeli jails. His detention under the vague “Unlawful Combatant” law [comparable to the indefinite detention provisions of NDAA 2012 as signed by Bushbamney on 12/31/2011] has been continually renewed without charge, trial or even allegation. Now he has spent almost three months in non-violent protest against the injustices leveled against him. Even if he survives his hunger strike, he will face many health issues that will prevent him from being a professional or possibly even recreational athlete.

Hors d’oevres and trophies for the militant, starvation and death for the peaceful civilian athlete. What kind of message are we in America trying to send to the world by giving freedom medals to the violent, and depriving the non-violent of their freedom?

Amerika: Neither Land of the Free Nor Home of the Brave

Amerika: Neither Land of the Free Nor Home of the Brave

If you are charged with a crime in Amerika, you are guilty unless you are rich. If you are struck by a drone from Amerika, you are guilty unless you survive.

 

AMERIKA: NEITHER LAND OF THE FREE NOR HOME OF THE BRAVE

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”–Goethe

As things stand, when corporate fascist puppet president Bushbamney signs NDAA 2013 (H.R. 4310, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013), bipartisan-sponsored Amendment 114 (based on H.R. 5736) will make it legal for the U.S. government to use Nazi Germany Goebbels-style “Big Lie” propaganda on its own citizens. And no doubt one of the biggest lies our ruling elite’s Demopublican operatives will continue selling us is that America is “the land of the free and the home of the brave”. That may have been somewhat accurate at some point in in our checkered past, but it’s certainly not true in today’s post-NDAA 2012 (Public Law 112-81) Fourth Reich “Amerika”.

 

LAND OF THE FREE?

How can Amerika be the land of the free when we have more laws on the books – and more people in prison for allegedly breaking them – than any other nation in the world?

Doubt that? Read this:

“So which country has the most laws regulating its citizenry? After looking high and low I discovered that the country with the most laws – not just today, but in all of history is… the United States. We not only have the most laws in all of history, but we also turn out more new laws and regulations to manage our people every single year than most countries turn out in decades.

http://tinyurl.com/7xp4l6f

“These new laws have come with an infusion of money into an expanded security system on the state and federal levels, including more public surveillance cameras, tens of thousands of security personnel and a massive expansion of a terrorist-chasing bureaucracy.”

http://tinyurl.com/88sq98d

“Half of the world’s prison population of about nine million is held in the US, China or Russia. Prison rates in the US are the world’s highest, at 724 people per 100,000.”


http://tinyurl.com/zkw7v

“Incarceration in the United States is one of the main forms of punishment and/or rehabilitation for the commission of felony and other offenses. The United States has the highest documented incarceration rate in the world. At year-end 2009 it was 743 adults incarcerated per 100,000 population. According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) 2,266,800 adults were incarcerated in U.S. federal and state prisons, and county jails at year-end 2010 – about 0.7% of adults in the U.S. resident population. Additionally, 4,933,667 adults at year-end 2009 were on probation or on parole.”


http://tinyurl.com/6m7dr6

 

HOME OF THE BRAVE?

How can Amerika be the home of the brave when our cowardly and illegal drone attacks are killing thousands of innocent civilians – many falsely counted as “combatants”, “militants” or “terrorists” – while at the same time more of our troops commit suicide every year than get killed in action?

Doubt that? Read this:

“Drones raise questions about the growing disconnect between the American public and its wars. Military ethicists concede that drones can turn war into a video game and, with no Americans directly at risk, more easily draw the United States into conflicts… The number of civilian deaths caused by drone strikes is unclear, and hotly contested. A report in February 2012 by the London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism said that drone strikes on suspected militants in Pakistan have repeatedly targeted rescuers who responded to the scene of a strike, as well as mourners at subsequent funerals.”

http://tinyurl.com/kqtjwl

In Pakistan (an American “ally”) alone, through mid-August last year as many as 2,956 people were killed and another 1,158 injured by U.S. drone attacks. Many were labelled “militants”, but the death toll includes at least 175 children and as many as 781 verified civilians. Despite all this collateral damage, no more than 150 “named militants” were killed. And again, these statistics are for Pakistan alone. How many more innocent children, women and men have Bushbamney’s immoral drone strikes murdered in Afghanistan, the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere?

http://tinyurl.com/3es3tez

“Mr. Obama embraced a disputed method for counting civilian casualties that did little to box him in. It in effect counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants, according to several administration officials, unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent.”


http://tinyurl.com/6mpvawo

“From 2005 to 2010, [U.S.] service members took their own lives at a rate of approximately one every 36 hours. While suicides in the Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard have been relatively stable and lower than those of the ground forces, U.S. Army suicides have climbed steadily since 2004. The Army reported a record-high number of suicides in July 2011 with the deaths of 33 active and reserve component service members reported as suicides. Suicides in the Marine Corps increased steadily from 2006 to 2009, dipping slightly in 2010. It is impossible, given the paucity of current data, to determine the suicide rate among veterans with any accuracy. However, the VA estimates that a veteran dies by suicide every 80 minutes. Moreover, although only 1 percent of Americans have served in the military, former service members represent 20 percent of suicides in the United States.”

http://tinyurl.com/3stynxb

“For the second year (2010) in a row, more US soldiers killed themselves (468) than died in combat (462). ‘If you… know the one thing that causes people to commit suicide, please let us know,’ General Peter Chiarelli told the Army Times, ‘because we don’t know.’ Suicide is a tragic but predictable human reaction to being asked to kill – and watch your friends be killed – particularly when it’s for a war based on lies.”

NDAA 2012 Codified Indefinite Detention. Now NDAA 2013 Legalizes Domestic Propaganda.

NDAA 2013

America’s two-party tyranny has authorized endless wars, warrantless surveillance, homeland drones and indefinite detention. Now they’re legalizing the Big Lie.

NDAA 2012 CODIFIED INDEFINITE DETENTION. NOW NDAA 2013 LEGALIZES DOMESTIC PROPAGANDA.

What the Democrats and Republicans agree on is far more damaging and dangerous than the wedge issues on which they supposedly don’t. We saw that last year with the enactment of Public Law 112-81, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA 2012), which had bipartisan sponsorship and sailed through both House and Senate with overwhelming bipartisan majority support. Now acceleratedly close on its heels comes H.R. 4310, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (NDAA 2013), which glided through the House with broad bipartisan support on May 18 and is now in the hands of the Senate:

http://tinyurl.com/6rt9xzt

Attached to that bill is a bipartisan-sponsored amendment summarized as follows:

“Amendment No. 114 – Reps. Thornberry (R-TX) and Smith (D-WA): The amendment would amend the United States Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948 (known as the Smith-Mundt Act) and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1986 and 1987 to clarify the authorities of the Department of State and the Broadcasting Board of Governors to prepare, disseminate and use public diplomacy information [propaganda] abroad and to strike the current ban on domestic dissemination of such material. The amendment would clarify that the Smith-Mundt Act’s provisions related to public diplomacy information [propaganda] do not apply to other federal departments or agencies (including the DoD).”


http://tinyurl.com/6ndk8lr

The full text of the amendment is assumed to be H.R. 5736, euphemistically labelled the “Smith Mundt Modernization Act of 2013”. You can read that here:

http://tinyurl.com/7k98kqs

http://tinyurl.com/7eqx3fl

This amendment legalizes what many think the government has been doing for years anyway: using false propaganda to influence the decisions and control the minds of its own citizens. According to Buzzfeed:

“The tweak to the bill would essentially neutralize two previous acts – the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987 – that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government’s misinformation campaigns… The new law would give sweeping powers to the government to push television, radio, newspaper, and social media onto the U.S. public. ‘It removes the protection for Americans,’ says a Pentagon official who is concerned about the law. ‘It removes oversight from the people who want to put out this information. There are no checks and balances. No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false…’ Critics of the bill point out that there was rigorous debate when Smith Mundt passed, and the fact that this is so ‘under the radar,’ as the Pentagon official puts it, is troubling… The evaporation of Smith-Mundt and other provisions to safeguard U.S. citizens against government propaganda campaigns is part of a larger trend within the diplomatic and military establishment… In December, the Pentagon used software to monitor the Twitter debate over Bradley Manning’s pre-trial hearing; another program being developed by the Pentagon would design software to create ‘sock puppets’ on social media outlets [such as Facebook, Twitter and online forums]; and, last year, General William Caldwell, deployed an information operations team under his command that had been trained in psychological operations to influence visiting American politicians to Kabul.”

http://tinyurl.com/c78hhg9

DemandProgress.org asserts that “The NDAA amendment legalizing mass propaganda campaigns would remove all distinction between a hostile foreign audience and American one, turning the massive information operation apparatus within the federal government against its own people.” They offer yet another online petition/email campaign to oppose it, but many consider such initiatives to be impotent slacktivism:

http://tinyurl.com/7lq76h2

Our rapidly accelerating descent into Orwellian police-state fascism will not be stopped or even slowed by signing one online petition or one thousand. And it won’t be reversed at the ballot box, because voting either Democrat or Republican keeps the same corporate-controlled oligopoly in power, and voting any other way is at best an act of defiance:

http://tinyurl.com/7e57dqe

Our only solution is to take to the streets and quickly – before the drones overhead control our every move, and the droning of TVs and flickering of monitors our every thought.

World War Web Advisory #6: NSA Big Brother Utah Data Center To Achieve “Total Information Awareness” By September 2013

World War Web Advisory #6: NSA Big Brother Utah Data Center To Achieve "Total Information Awareness" By September 2013

While Americans focus on Kim, Kony, Clooney and the slave-produced iPad 3, the totalitarian takeover that assures their own subjugation draws near – and only 29 years later than Orwell predicted.

WORLD WAR WEB ADVISORY #6: NSA BIG BROTHER UTAH DATA CENTER TO ACHIEVE “TOTAL INFORMATION AWARENESS” BY SEPTEMBER 2013

Too bad more hacktivists don’t follow @VVVPR on Twitter. If they did, Anonymous might have seen this warning in time to mitigate the impact of their infiltration and betrayal by LulzSec’s Sabu a.k.a. FBI informant Hector Xavier Monsegur:

“How do we tell the true #Anonymous (good guys) from the #CIA #DHS #FBI #NSA etc false flaggers (#fascists)? 9:12 PM – 20 Feb 12”

https://twitter.com/#!/VVVPR/status/171779210036252672

They would also have been apprised of a nemesis on the horizon that – if allowed to grow unchecked – could leave the merry band of high-minded hackers with future prospects comparable to those of the Polish Cavalry in 1938:

“With new #NSA data center, #BigBrother will achieve “total information awareness” by September 2013: bit.ly/zkZcJl #Anonymous #OWS Retweeted by VVV PR 6:04 AM – 18 Mar 12″

https://twitter.com/#!/WatchFrogsBoil/status/181320113927094273

The NSA simply calls it their “Utah Data Center”:

“Under construction by contractors with top-secret clearances, the blandly named Utah Data Center [UDC] is being built for the National Security Agency. A project of immense secrecy, it is the final piece in a complex puzzle assembled over the past decade. Its purpose: to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world’s communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks. The heavily fortified $2 billion center should be up and running in September 2013. Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trail – parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital ‘pocket litter.’ It is, in some measure, the realization of the “total information awareness” program created during the first term of the Bush administration…”

The demise of Anonymous is not the sole purpose of the NSA UDC any more than the Occupy Movement was the sole target of HR 347, the bill corporate fascist puppet president Barack Obama recently signed into law (Public Law 112-98) that in certain key circumstances makes peaceful protest a felony. According to one of Wired.com’s unnamed NSA officials, “Everybody’s a target; everybody with communication is a target … not only governments around the world but also many average computer users in the US.”

Average American computer users, of course, are either clueless or could care less. They’re far too busy “talking about” Kim Kardashian’s Fakebook page … “liking” Kony 2012 – a credibility-challenged but viral YouTube video about the sad plight of some children from Uganda, a country most of them could not find on a map … “retweeting” kudos to actor George Clooney for his recent celebrity stand against injustice in Sudan – as if that was somehow more crucial than injustices in their own country like the Patriot Act, AUMF 2001, Citizens United, NDAA 2012, HR 658 and HR 347 … or queuing to buy the new Apple iPad 3, the latest in a long line of “iPlanned Obsolescence” products built by slave labor and bought by brainwashed zombies.

There’s not much to hope for in all this. But to close on a positive note, many of the Polish Cavalry’s charges into the invading Nazi lines were successful, and the fascists were defeated in the end.

In Post-NDAA Amerika, What is a Terrorist and Who Can Make You Disappear by Calling You One?

Suspected Terrorist

IN POST NDAA AMERIKA, WHAT IS A TERRORIST AND WHO CAN MAKE YOU DISAPPEAR BY CALLING YOU ONE?

Since corporate fascist puppet president Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 into law this past New Year’s Eve (NDAA: Public Law 112-81), the powers of indefinite detention claimed under the post-9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force Act (AUMF: Public Law 107-40) have been codified. Now the mere suspicion of being a “terrorist” is sufficient grounds for an American citizen – on American soil – to be arrested and detained indefinitely without charge or trial. Obvious questions of constitutionality aside, this should prompt at least the cautious to ask questions like the following:

1. What is the legal definition of “terrorist”?

2. Who can make you disappear by calling you one?

To answer the first question, we searched the online version of the United States Code – “the codification of the general and permanent laws of the United States” – for a definition of “terrorist”. And to our amazement, we didn’t find one. Over 400 references to “terrorist” in the USC, yes. But a specific definition, no. What we did find is this:

Title 8 Section 1182(a)(3)(B) defines “terrorist activity” but not “terrorist”:

(iii) “Terrorist activity” defined As used in this chapter, the term “terrorist activity” means any activity which is unlawful under the laws of the place where it is committed (or which, if it had been committed in the United States, would be unlawful under the laws of the United States or any State) and which involves any of the following: (I) The highjacking or sabotage of any conveyance (including an aircraft, vessel, or vehicle). (II) The seizing or detaining, and threatening to kill, injure, or continue to detain, another individual in order to compel a third person (including a governmental organization) to do or abstain from doing any act as an explicit or implicit condition for the release of the individual seized or detained. (III) A violent attack upon an internationally protected person (as defined in section 1116(b)(4) of title 18) or upon the liberty of such a person. (IV) An assassination. (V) The use of any – (a) biological agent, chemical agent, or nuclear weapon or device, or (b) explosive, firearm, or other weapon or dangerous device (other than for mere personal monetary gain), with intent to endanger, directly or indirectly, the safety of one or more individuals or to cause substantial damage to property. (VI) A threat, attempt, or conspiracy to do any of the foregoing. (iv) “Engage in terrorist activity” defined As used in this chapter, the term “engage in terrorist activity” means, in an individual capacity or as a member of an organization – (I) to commit or to incite to commit, under circumstances indicating an intention to cause death or serious bodily injury, a terrorist activity; (II) to prepare or plan a terrorist activity; (III) to gather information on potential targets for terrorist activity; (IV) to solicit funds or other things of value for – (aa) a terrorist activity; (bb) a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(I) or (vi)(II); or (cc) a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III), unless the solicitor can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that he did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization;

(V) to solicit any individual – (aa) to engage in conduct otherwise described in this subsection; (bb) for membership in a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(I) or (vi)(II); or (cc) for membership in a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III) unless the solicitor can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that he did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization; or

(VI) to commit an act that the actor knows, or reasonably should know, affords material support, including a safe house, transportation, communications, funds, transfer of funds or other material financial benefit, false documentation or identification, weapons (including chemical, biological, or radiological weapons), explosives, or training – (aa) for the commission of a terrorist activity; (bb) to any individual who the actor knows, or reasonably should know, has committed or plans to commit a terrorist activity; (cc) to a terrorist organization described in subclause (I) or (II) of clause (vi) or to any member of such an organization; or (dd) to a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III), or to any member of such an organization, unless the actor can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that the actor did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization. (v) “Representative” defined As used in this paragraph, the term “representative” includes an officer, official, or spokesman of an organization, and any person who directs, counsels, commands, or induces an organization or its members to engage in terrorist activity. (vi) “Terrorist organization” defined As used in this section, the term “terrorist organization” means an organization – (I) designated under section 1189 of this title; (II) otherwise designated, upon publication in the Federal Register, by the Secretary of State in consultation with or upon the request of the Attorney General or the Secretary of Homeland Security, as a terrorist organization, after finding that the organization engages in the activities described in subclauses (I) through (VI) of clause (iv); or (III) that is a group of two or more individuals, whether organized or not, which engages in, or has a subgroup which engages in, the activities described in subclauses (I) through (VI) of clause (iv).

Title 18 Section 2331 defines “international terrorism” and “domestic terrorism” [READ CLOSELY] but not “terrorist”:

As used in this chapter- (1) the term “international terrorism” means activities that- (A) involve violent acts or acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended- (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily outside the territorial jurisdiction of the United States, or transcend national boundaries in terms of the means by which they are accomplished, the persons they appear intended to intimidate or coerce, or the locale in which their perpetrators operate or seek asylum; (2) the term “national of the United States” has the meaning given such term in section 101(a)(22) of the Immigration and Nationality Act; (3) the term “person” means any individual or entity capable of holding a legal or beneficial interest in property; (4) the term “act of war” means any act occurring in the course of- (A) declared war; (B) armed conflict, whether or not war has been declared, between two or more nations; or (C) armed conflict between military forces of any origin; and (5) the term “domestic terrorism” means activities that- (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended- (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.

Title 22 Section 2656f(d) defines “international terrorism”, “terrorism”, “terrorist group” and “terrorist sanctuary” but not “terrorist”:

(d) Definitions As used in this section- (1) the term “international terrorism” means terrorism involving citizens or the territory of more than 1 country; (2) the term “terrorism” means premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents; (3) the term “terrorist group” means any group practicing, or which has significant subgroups which practice, international terrorism; (4) the terms “territory” and “territory of the country” mean the land, waters, and airspace of the country; and (5) the terms “terrorist sanctuary” and “sanctuary” mean an area in the territory of the country- (A) that is used by a terrorist or terrorist organization- (i) to carry out terrorist activities, including training, fundraising, financing, and recruitment; or (ii) as a transit point; and (B) the government of which expressly consents to, or with knowledge, allows, tolerates, or disregards such use of its territory and is not subject to a determination under- (i) section 2405(j)(1)(A) of the Appendix to title 50; (ii) section 2371 (a) of this title; or (iii) section 2780 (d) of this title.

I’m no attorney and I don’t play one on television. But after reading the above, it seems to me that the short answer to the question “What is the legal definition of terrorist?” is “That depends.”

Now on to the second question: Who can make you disappear by calling you one?

According to the Washington Post’s TOP SECRET AMERICA project, there are “45 government organizations (for example, the FBI) engaged in top-secret work [that can] be broken down into 1,271 sub-units (for example, the Terrorist Screening Center of the FBI).” I’m pretty sure they can. But they also mention “4,058 government organizations involved in domestic counterterrorism and homeland security” including 2,880 federal organizations that work at the state level, such as the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs), plus 818 state and 360 local organizations. I’m pretty sure they can, too. And then of course there’s the “1,931 companies engaged in top-secret work for the government.” I’d wager some or all of them can, as well.

And that’s not all. We also have to consider the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative (NSI):

http://nsi.ncirc.gov/

Using NaSI SARs (Suspicious Activity Reports), just about anyone can drop the dime the makes you disappear: a hateful former spouse, a jealous or jilted lover, that co-worker you’re always competing with, or maybe just a nosey neighbor. All they have to do is fill out one of these forms and click “Submit”:
