The Pentagon, as always politically correct, and homophobic, was considering building 'a gay bomb' in the 1990's, America's own weapon of mass deception. For details, see report from CBS Berkeley (where else) Pentagon Confirms It Sought To Build A 'Gay Bomb'
A Berkeley watchdog organization that tracks military spending said it uncovered a strange U.S. military proposal to create a hormone bomb that could purportedly turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals and make them more interested in sex than fighting.
Pentagon officials on Friday confirmed to CBS 5 that military leaders had considered, and then subsuquently rejected, building the so-called "Gay Bomb."
If you think this was nonsense you're probably right and though initially considered, it was eventually shot down before it got very high up the food chain of the military.
However if you think that all such 'no-brainer' schemes have little chance of being approved by the Pentagon, think again. Here is one plan, Operation Northwoods, in March of 1962, that made it all the way up the miltary chain of command, and was signed on and promoted by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Lemnitzer, only to be turned down by Defense Secretary Robert McNamara and President Kennedy after some heated argument.
