Franz, some bad ideas just keep giving!

When the signal you're looking for is so weak that background interferes,
you know you've got problems.  Using radiation as a means of identifying
terrorists was always a losing proposition.  It's almost as pointless as
tapping in to every phone conversation and email on the networks hoping to
overhear a plot being hatched.  To be useful, surveillance with such
nonspecific tests must focus on a manageably small set of suspects.

It should be clear by now that there are no technological solutions to
identifying terrorists.  It would be far easier and cost effective to
convince Osama bin Laden and associates to love America.
