"It's been more than a decade since the September 11th attacks.
The question is whether we're on this pendulum and we're going to
swing back to some semblance of sanity when it comes to civil
liberties," says The Intercept's Ryan Devereaux, who along with
co-authored a shocking expose on the secret government guide to
placing people on terrorist watchlists. Devereaux spoke with Reason TV's Nick Gillespie about

the 166 page document, approved by the Obama administration in
March 2013 and developed by no less than 19 government agencies,
which greatly expands the scope of the national terror
watchlist.It also substantially lowers the bar for placing a person
on the list, definitively stating that "concrete facts are not
necessary" for someone to be deemed reasonably suspicious and
worthy of government surveillance.About 7 minutes.Produced by Anthony L. Fisher, with assistance from Brett
