Marine animals join “War on Terror”

Paul Raven @ 20-05-2010

It might help curb your concerns about terrorist attacks channeled through nature to learn that some of God’s creatures are fighting on the side of righteousness: the US Navy has a Marine Mammals unit that trains sea lions and dolphins to detect and apprehend terrorists trying to sabotage or disrupt coastal infrastructure [via SlashDot].

Apparently the unit has existed since the Vietnam War… how in hell did they not get their own TV show?

    Seems to me that William Gibson used that in “Johnny Mnenomic.” I don’t suppose a TV show would have used that dark a take on it, though.

    Haven’t you seen “Day of the Dolphin”?
