     Apparently, the DHS has been keeping their daily terrorist activity briefs on the web.  Try Googling homeland security operations morning brief.  But easier than that, just check out the collection at hacker-paradise Cryptome.  It's a litany of mostly mundane law enforcement activities.  A number of people aren't allowed in the country for supposed terrorist connections, for example, on 22 Nov

7. (FOUO) NEW YORK: CBP Denies Entry to 25 Canadians With Possible Links to a Terrorist Organization. According to BTS reporting, on 19 November, at the Alexandria Bay Port of Entry, CBP officers denied entry to 25 Canadians applying to enter the U.S. in order to attend a protest rally in Washington, D.C. sponsored by the Council for Freedom and Democracy in Iran. Reportedly, the 25 individuals had possible links to the Mujahedin e-Khalq (MEK)—a known terrorist organization. (BTS Daily Operations Report, 20 November 04; HSOC 4444-04)

     As you are no doubt aware, Michael Isikoff has reported on John Ashcroft's links with Mujahedin-e Khalq, but Ashcroft will not be deported to Iraq.  It's not just Ashcroft.  Over 200 Congresscritters voiced their support for Saddam's MEK (yes, it was a Saddam backed organization) in the late 1990s.  Such fickle friends they are!
