Such information is generally not available to the public.

Regardless of the rampant paranoia that exists today, it is extremely unlikely that anyone is on a "list" because of their web surfing habits, phone calls to friends overseas, campaign donations, posting history on message boards, or other such mundane things.

Travel history, associations with suspected criminal or terrorist elements, a history of threatening public officials, and other such much more serious things are what will get one's name on security watch lists.
