Maybe the entire show was a disinformation ploy by THEM?

Some other observations from last night's NCIS show (Spoiler Alert!):

At the scene where a car exploded and burned during a police chase the
night before, while having a problem using his cell phone near the burnt
wreckage, an NCIS agent observed, "I know something that could cause
local RF interference."    

The old CDV-700 was brought to detect what later another NCIS agent
determined was "a minute trace of radiation" from Co-60.

Later another NCIS agent took the CDV-700 and was playfully spinning the
GM detector around by the HV cable just before entering another location
to check for more Co-60.  
And where did the Co-60 come from?  Later the agents are told by a
dentist that his 15 Co-60 units, used for dental x-rays, were recently
stolen.  The worried NCIS agents mutter, "That's enough for five dirty
bombs when powderized."

[So now do-it-yourself terrorist know that all they have to do is grind
up three stolen dental x-ray machines to make a 'dirty bomb'.  ;-)]

The rest of the show and the plot ending were pretty much downhill from
