the idea proposed of having some hitech way of disposing of the "swapped" terrorists brings to mind a Fredrick Forsyth plotted thriller of quite some time ago. in this novel, an exchange of jailed prisoners in some kind of deal was accomplished, however the released prisoners had beem infected with a slow acting fatal dose of poison, so the released personnel wouldn't survive more then a few days after their release. i'm sorry, but the name of this book escapes me.
