Pentagon Wants Tiny Robot Bugs For Sinister Purposes

A similar scheme aimed at manipulating wasps failed when they flew off to feed and mate.

Ain't that always the way...

These other examples were also fairly amusing:
WWII: Attach a bomb to a cat and drop it from a dive-bomber on to Nazi ships. The cat, hating water, will "wrangle" itself on to enemy ship's deck. In tests cats became unconscious in mid-air
WWII: Attach incendiaries to bats. Induce hibernation and drop them from planes. They wake up, fly into factories etc and blow up. Failed to wake from hibernation and fell to death

Luckily, the team here already recruited Streaky, the Super Cat as our guard-animal of choice.
(Ace, the BatHound, proved too disagreeable. And was found having inappropriate relations with Skippy,
the Bird Dog)
