Not as silly as it sounds.
Bear in mind, France's security service got sprung big time many many moons ago (40yrs?), having bugged every Air France plane's seats, monitoring passenger lists, and keeping the recordings of anyone of interest.
And it's a LOT cheaper & simpler to do, nowadays.
And could Washington DC be considered potentially a riper richer area of interest than most?...
