Pentagon Contemplated Building 'A Gay Bomb'

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.

Lee Ward:

The concept of our military building and deploying a "gay bomb" is a riot. The fact that this happened in the 1990s instead of the 1950s is even funnier....

The leap from "Operation Northwoods" to some of the assumptions and accusations made by the 9/11 truthers is perhaps more like a good hop rather than a full leap. Interesting that Kennedy resisted the temptation to bring down the country to the same level as our enemies, but President Bush could not.

U.P. Man:

Lee, are you saying President Bush, knew/arranged for 9/11?

Surely, you don't believe that ?

Let's see who was president during the 90's ? Wish I could remember his name.....

Paul Hamilton:

It's getting so that stuff from the Onion is less ridiculous than stuff from the real world.
