Yes, terrorizing with any amount of radioactivity will work in this  country, 
because many of the government agencies (including, and especially  right 
now, GAO) keep reinforcing that idea.  I believe that was one of  Mr. Bradt's 
points - the "injury" is self-inflicted - if the agencies keep  buying into (and 
thereby reinforcing) the panic scenario, rather than making a  deliberate and 
concerted effort to pre-empt a panic response with appropriate  information, 
then we only have ourselves to blame.

The  purpose behind a dirty bomb is not to kill, it is to terrorize.  For 
that  purpose, any amount of radioactive material will work.  To the public the  
setting off of a dirty bomb means the area of the explosion is contaminated  
for a thousand years.
