Spy Pigeons

AFP reports:

Security forces in Natanz have arrested two suspected “spy pigeons” near Iran’s controversial uranium enrichment facility, the reformist Etemad Melli newspaper reported on Monday.


“Early this month, a black pigeon was caught bearing a blue-coated metal ring, with invisible strings,” the source was quoted as saying of the second pigeon. The source gave no further description of the pigeons, neither their current status nor what their fate will be.

I read this news; I look out my window to ascertain the source of that cooing noise; and I realise that the Americans are spying on me as well. I shall, regardless, continue to enrich my nucleus. Time for a snack.
