Spy crows

A stunning twist in the War on Crows: the US military reportedly contracted with researchers to see if crows could be trained to find Osama Bin Laden.

Is that a black helicopter?!? Where's Glenn Beck's chalkboard?!?) See also: America's parachuting, armored, gas-mask-wearing, doggled military dogs. [KING/Neurophilosphy via TMN] [Foreign Policy]
