Drafting Dolphins

Drafting Dolphins

by

Dolphins are clearing underwater "mines" and sea lions are cuffing
"terrorists" during homeland security training exercises in California this week.
The Navy Marine Mammals program, begun during the Vietnam War and now
being expanded into anti-terrorism work, was even brought in for the
1996 GOP convention, presumably to guard against underwater hippie
protesters. The critters have bad-ass names like Viper and
Iceman. No word on how they feel about doing military service.
