Government Watch List

Watchlists created by the U.S. Departments of State, Commerce, and Treasury that list individuals the U.S. has determined pose a potential domestic threat. These lists consist of both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals. The F.B.I. maintains one of the most comprehensive watchlists through their Terrorist Screening Center. It is possible to search for individuals on a watch list through a public list published by the U.S. Treasury.
