" Terror Database Has Quadrupled In Four Years
U.S. Watch Lists Are Drawn From Massive Clearinghouse

Each day, thousands of pieces of intelligence information from around the world — field reports, captured documents, news from foreign allies and sometimes idle gossip — arrive in a computer-filled office in McLean, where analysts feed them into the nation's central list of terrorists and terrorism suspects.
Called TIDE, for Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment, the list is a storehouse for data about individuals that the intelligence community believes might harm the United States. It is the wellspring for watch lists distributed to airlines, law enforcement, border posts and U.S. consulates, created to close one of the key intelligence gaps revealed after Sept. 11, 2001: the failure of federal agencies to share what they knew about al-Qaeda operatives. "
The question is 'How do slashdot users keep such data straight. If its a database and somewhere in it is two records; both for people named John D. Elvinhaus, who both lived in or near Denver at the same time, one who works at 7-11, one works at a security company.
What are the correct ways to keep these records straight, unconfused, not marked as duplicates, or in this case, confusing both as terrorists when only one of them has some unbelievably small link to some terrorist activity? What can the government do to avoid this issue?"
