Government watch lists are usually kept secret. You can't just call the FBI and ask if your name's sitting on a list somewhere. The most likely way you'll find out if you're on a government watch list, such as the U.S. Consolidated Terrorist Watch List, is to go to the airport and try to board a plane. If you're on the watch list , you'll be stopped for an extensive security check. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) oversees air travel in the United States. If your name is on the Terrorist Screening Center (TSC) master list, the TSA will have you flagged, and you probably will be asked to submit to more thorough scrutiny and more intensive security checks than other passengers.
A few government watch lists are public. For example, you can request to see the Specifically Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons list, administered by the U.S. Treasury, to see if your name is featured.
