Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, is justified in raising concerns about the size and accuracy of the federal government’s terrorist â€œwatch list.” A Government Accountability Office study released this week said the watch list contained about 755,000 names, though there may be some duplicates. But Lieberman said the list actually now contains about 860,000 names and has increased nearly 500 percent in the past three years. He said the size and rapid growth of the list â€œcould call into question the quality of the list itself.”
