It may be the oddest tale to emerge from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Armed dolphins, trained by the US military to shoot terrorists and pinpoint spies underwater, may be missing in the Gulf of Mexico.
Experts who have studied the US navy's cetacean training exercises claim the 36 mammals could be carrying 'toxic dart' guns. Divers and surfers risk attack, they claim, from a species considered to be among the planet's smartest. The US navy admits it has been training dolphins for military purposes, but has refused to confirm that any are missing.

Dolphins have been trained in attack-and-kill missions since the Cold War. The US Atlantic bottlenose dolphins have apparently been taught to shoot terrorists attacking military vessels. Their coastal compound was breached during the storm, sweeping them out to sea. But those who have studied the controversial use of dolphins in the US defence programme claim it is vital they are caught quickly.

Leo Sheridan, 72, a respected accident investigator who has worked for government and industry, said he had received intelligence from sources close to the US government's marine fisheries service confirming dolphins had escaped.

This sounds like a bogous story to me. If the military did have these dolphins trained in this manner, they would not leave them swimming around in some pond with some contraption on there head all the time. The military, in it's standard parinoid fashion, would remove any device, harness, and probe before katrina hit so they wouldn't lose any important information.

Fuck that's cool! It's about time we taught other animals to use weapons and kill humans! Come on this is the best!

Imagine your freshly dead corpse, your soul lifting into the heavens, and while you're in the waiting room in heaven someone says "How did you pass on?" and you reply "Shot by a Dolphin." Everyone in the room goes "WHAAAAA????" at the same time.

You know it'd be cool.

This would be an awesome Counter-Strike mod, but since that article is complete bullshit (lol lack of fingers or toes) this topic should be thouroughly laughed at and moved to Forum Games and Humor.

if you google US navy ceatacous (sp) project you find they are only the carriers for the weapon, the actual firing is done by humans watching proceedings on cctv..
the story is true, but they really aren't a danger unless someone presses fire somehow, which won't happen..
the biggest part of this story is that they may have lost animals that are very highly trained.. quite a problem to replace.

FYI the majority of my porn is hosted in Japan or Thailand so I care about this issue much less than you all do.
