    well, if there is any truth to this--they have all of the codes on the phones and they will be monitored by Homeland-Security. I certainly wouldn't loose any sleep over this.

    The issues regarding terrorism that you DO need to lose sleep over, are the things you do NOT know (nor does the press).

    According to the article:

    So, if they do have all the codes on the phones, (which I doubt), but if they do, they are still "difficult or impossible to track." :(

    You will recall that the Madrid bombs were detonated by cell phones.

    I heard on the radio this AM that this didn't really happen.

    So are a lot of the IEDs in Iraq. We use cell phone jammer devices in our convoys though, and that helps a good deal. Still the bomb can be detonated manually, and those are hard to see to start with.
