Report puts Dearborn second for residents on terror watch list

DEARBORN (WKZO) -- The police chief in Dearborn wants federal authorities to explain why the city ranks second to New York City in the number of residents on the so-called terrorist watch list.

The online news site "The Intercept" reported this week on classified government documents it obtained that indicate 680-thousand people nationwide are included in what is an expanded screening system. The rate of placing names on the terror watch and no fly lists was expanded after the 2009 attempted bombing of an airliner approaching Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

Police Chief Ronald Haddad wrote Wednesday to the FBI to ask if the report is accurate in order to assess any real threat to the community.
