By the way -- the bad guys figured out long ago how paranoid we are
about anything that smacks of WMD…even if it's a deception.

Case in point: Dihren Barot, the AQ surveillant who now sits in UK
prison, actually stated in his surveillance reports related to the
Prudential Building op in NJ that the attack team should paint the gas
and oxygen canisters with the yellow and black radioactive symbol. He
opined (correctly I believe) that when first responders found bits and
pieces of the yellow/black metal, they'd freak out and seal the entire
area…and no one would ever believe the USG's subsequent explanation that
it wasn’t really radioactive. The bad guys only need to be right once…..

(By the way, we brief Barot and many other real-world case studies in
our Surveillance Detection training related to TrapWire. Always a bit
hit with the LE crowds).
