The WET list

The Western European Terrorist (WET) List was an NSA-curated list of terrorist operatives in western Europe who were being tracked by the authorities of the United States of America.

During Day 5, agents at CTU discovered that Collette Stenger, an important collaborator of Vladimir Bierko (their main target) was being covertly followed by German intelligence agent Theo Stoller. Jack Bauer, without permission from his superiors, promised Stoller the entire WET List in exchange for his help in apprehending Stenger. Bauer then had Chloe O'Brian steal the list from the NSA's mainframe and send it to his PDA. Theo, who knew some names that were expected to be on the list, reviewed it for a moment and was satisified it was authentic.

Once Stenger was apprehended, Bauer gave Theo a computer chip with the List. However, this copy was destroyed because Jack had rigged the chip to self-destruct, before Theo could upload it to Heinrich, his superior in Germany. Jack called Stoller to apologize, promising that he would help him rebuild his investigation, but Stoller, furious, said he couldn't trust Jack's word anymore. ("Day 5: 8:00pm-9:00pm")

Background information and notes[]

  • The real National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) maintains a list of known and suspected terrorists as well as people who allegedly aid them. The list is officially called the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment (TIDE) list. The TIDE list comprises over 540,000 names, but due to aliases and "name variants", there is an estimated 450,000 different identities. U.S. residents (including citizens and permanent legal residents) only hold less than 5 percent of the spaces on the TIDE list. This database is a shared knowledge database compiled from reports supplied by 16 different agencies including the CIA, the FBI and the National Security Agency (NSA). The NSA is a key provider of information for the TIDE list.
