File picture shows NCTC staff at the National Counter-Terrorism Center in McLean, VirginiaUS authorities can place Americans and foreigners on a terrorist watch list indefinitely on the basis of vague rules without concrete evidence, according to a leaked government document. Once blacklisted, individuals have no way of finding out why they are deemed suspicious and even dead people's names remain on the list, under secret guidelines set out last year by the National Counter-Terrorism Center (NCTC), which were published for the first time by The Intercept news website. The new rules introduced by President Barack Obama's administration represent an expansion of the US government's power when it comes to designating suspected terrorists, laying out broad criteria for adding names to the blacklists, The Intercept reported. Individuals added to the watch lists can be banned from flying -- under the "no-fly" list -- or subjected to additional searches and security screening at airports and border crossings.
