DON'T ASK, DON'T DETONATE

Pentagon Spurned Plan to Initiate Enemy Homosexuality

By Jim Wolf

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military rejected a 1994 proposal to develop an "aphrodisiac" to spur homosexual activity among enemy troops but is hard at work on other less-than-lethal weapons, defense officials said on Sunday.

The idea of fostering homosexuality among the enemy figured in a declassified six-year, $7.5 million request from a laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio for funding of non-lethal chemical weapon research.

The proposal, disclosed in response to a Freedom of Information request, called for developing chemicals affecting human behavior "so that discipline and morale in enemy units is adversely affected."

More alarming is the fact that the Pentagon actually tested the "Gay Bomb" on American forces stationed in Saudi Arabia in July of 2001. Like the 1950's LSD trials that used American servicemen as guinea pigs, an American bomber dropped the "Gay Bomb" one half mile from encamped Americans. The result, described here in a recently declassified transcript, is not for the weak.

Pilot: Echo 2, Liberace has been released. Repeat, Liberace has been released.

Ground Control: Echo 1, can you see any effects?

Pilot: Too cloudy, my visibility is....Oh My God!

GC: Yes? What do you see?

Pilot: Oh, the humanity. My God, that private is.....b--------g his Captain. I can't watch this.

GC: Steady Major. Get a grip on yourself. Just describe...

Pilot: No! They're redecorating. That guy is looking at curtains. No. Wait. I'm picking something up. It sounds like....

GC: What is it, Major?

Pilot: Music, Sir. It's....it's...Judy Garland. Oh, you bastards.


According to the report, the bomb was unacceptable due to morale problems its presence might have caused among the other bombs. "You can't have all the bombs wondering if two or three other bombs might be sexually attracted to them. It's bad for morale and it could effect how and when armaments detonate," said one Pentagon spokesman.

A lawyer for the Lambda Legal Defense Fund disagrees. "That's nonsense. They said the same thing when we developed black bombs. Gay bombs have been serving in our military since the American Revolution. They have exploded with distinction and honor."

Some speculate that a proto-type 'Gay Bomb" was detonated over Provincetown, Massachusetts in the early 1940's.
