Of course it was the Air Force

Coming behind the "don't ask - don't tell" policy of the '90s, not only is this funny timing, but it is kind of a shocker that with the tight fiscal policy of the post-Cold War defense spending period, someone would think they would be able to squeeze this in and get some money out of it.
The Air Force on Tuesday confirmed a report that in 1994 a military researcher requested $7.5 million to develop a non-lethal "love bomb" that would chemically alter the state of mind of enemy troops and make them want to have sex with each other rather than fight.
Some call it the "gay bomb," but based on the numbers of pregnancies I saw on the ENTERPRISE in the late '90s, you could also call it "deployment."

I guess it would be tacky to talk about possible problems with "Blowback," or what call sign you would use for an accident or loss - being that the "Broken Arrow" series is already taken. Errrr, I'll stop before that troll shows up again and protests too much....

Hat tip LBG.
