Liberals Worried About Insect Spies

John on October 10, 2007 at 3:31 pm

When paranoid liberals look into the skies they don’t see black helicopters anymore, they see robo-insects:

Vanessa Alarcon, a university student who was working at an anti-war rally in the American capital last month, told the Washington Post: “I heard someone say, ‘Oh my God, look at those.’

“I look up and I’m like, ‘What the hell is that?’. They looked like dragonflies or little helicopters. But I mean, those are not insects.”

Bernard Crane, a lawyer who was at the same event, said he had “never seen anything like it in my life”. He added: “They were large for dragonflies. I thought, ‘Is that mechanical or is that alive?’”

The incident has similarities with an alleged sighting at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York when one peace march participant described on the internet seeing “a jet-black dragonfly hovering about 10 feet off the ground, precisely in the middle of 7th Avenue”.

The article notes that the CIA really did develop a robotic dragonfly in the 1970s which carried a small microphone. The one of a kind prototype was put on display back in 2003. The program was scrapped because the robo-bug couldn’t stay on course. But who knows, maybe they worked out the bugs in these bugged bugs?

I’m chalking this up to liberal paranoia, but it would be cool if we had insect spies. Maybe there are even a few circling over Waziristan right now.
