freaking lasers.

I read this story this morning.

The memo, sent by the FBI and the Homeland Security Department, says there is evidence that terrorists have explored using lasers as weapons.

There is no specific intelligence indicating al Qaeda or other groups might use lasers in the United States, they added.

"Although lasers are not proven methods of attack like improvised explosive devices and hijackings, terrorist groups overseas have expressed interest in using these devices against human sight," the memo said.

"In certain circumstances, if laser weapons adversely affect the eyesight of both pilot and co-pilot during a non-instrument approach, there is a risk of airliner crash," the agencies said.

I'm surprised that the story didn't mention how the lasers were attached to evil sharks. Stay afraid though, stay very afraid because if we stop being scared then the Bush administration would have to explain its real motives behind most of its moves including a war that I hear is going just great.

Great big fucking lasers.
