Pentagon Confirms It Sought To Build A 'Gay Bomb'

(CBS 5) BERKELEY 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 subsquently rejected, building the so-called "Gay Bomb."

Edward Hammond, of Berkeley's Sunshine Project, had used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain a copy of the proposal from the Air Force's Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio.

As part of a military effort to develop non-lethal weapons, the proposal suggested, "One distasteful but completely non-lethal example would be strong aphrodisiacs, especially if the chemical also caused homosexual behavior."

The documents show the Air Force lab asked for $7.5 million to develop such a chemical weapon.

"The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soliders to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistably attractive to one another," Hammond said after reviwing the documents.

"The notion was that a chemical that would probably be pleasant in the human body in low quantities could be identified, and by virtue of either breathing or having their skin exposed to this chemical, the notion was that soliders would become gay," explained Hammond.

The Pentagon told CBS 5 that the proposal was made by the Air Force in 1994.

"The Department of Defense is committed to identifying, researching and developing non-lethal weapons that will support our men and women in uniform," said a DOD spokesperson, who indicated that the "gay bomb" idea was quickly dismissed.....

Honestly, they've been thinking of implementing this idea for the past 18 years

wouldn't it be easier to just have Micheal Jackson parachute onto the battle field?

Billy Graham is having a huge convention locally by me here in upstate NY.
He drew in well over 10k people....those that are behind him & his visions & those protesting his BS.

The clash outside Binghamton university is simply histerical.
The Gay subject has seemed to dominate over the abortionists...pushing that group right into the river here.

If there is a gay bomb I know right where its needed this evening!!

IMO u can blow the whole damn convention area right up & the world would be a better more peaceful place!

FYI, this was a Clinton-era proposal.

But this proposal makes sense in some ways if it were possible.

First of all, if you are going to try to distract the enemy with sex so that they don't perform their military duties, it's generally going to have to be gay sex because there aren't that many women on the battlefield. Most likely, the concept here was to enhance the sex drive to such a great extent that the victims wouldn't care whether they were engaging in heterosexual sex or homosexual sex. I doubt that the concept was really that the victim would "become gay" as the article suggests.

Second, if the military opposes those who are openly gay in our military on the grounds that it would be disruptive and degrade our fighting ability, it makes sense that imposing openly gay behavior on the enemy would be disruptive to them.

It is a pretty strange/funny idea though. I'm sure there've been some other pretty crazy ideas from time to time. It would be interesting to hear about more of them.

This reminds me of the old Monty Python skit where the british scientists were designing the "world's deadliest joke" to use against the Germans in world war 2.

Funny part I remember from it (paraphrasing of course)...."the joke was so lethal, each scientist was only allowed to work on one word at a time....one scientist accidentally saw two words and ended up in a coma for 6 months"

Good stuff.
