Data Mining in visa context

I am currently doing a project where I am looking at how data mining can be used to highlight potential terrorists travelling through border control. I have created random records based on passport numbers, names, data entering and leaving the country, d.o.b, nationality, criminal records, previous expired visas.

I have added the dataset to Oracle Data Miner but I am not entirely sure what is the best way to carry out the data mining? I have used the different algorithms available but nothing has given me the results I was told would be given. Apparently mining the data should highlight a few possible records that can be used for further investigation.

Does anyone have any helpful ideas?
