I wonder if these were airliners which Litvinenko (or other Russian operatives) recently traveled on.

Well, luckily, to check is not difficult. What is difficult is to decontaminate, if it is there, and not in a removable container.

plutonium or polonium? Methinks the news got garbled and that it's the latter.

Nothing at the link or at Google News. Didn't see anything on BBC either. I know you aren't a troll, but do you have a source for this?

Yeah, pretzels probably have more flavor than Polonium 210, plus its harder to spray them without it being noticed!

HA! Not that I am a fan of Howlin, but she is an FR institution. The breaking news headline was on FoxNews just before they broke away to the Pentagon briefing and started discussing Bush meeting the Iraqi PM.

Not as posted here, it isn't. The Fox breaking banner says radiation, not plutonium.

I was thinking the same thing, they have a trail they are tracing backwards. This should be interesting.

Short term, too much polonium would probably make them all fall out! Hair too.

I saw the Fox News alert a few minutes ago, too. They said it was in connection to the death of Litvienko (sp). They are calling it traces of radiation that was detected.
