Shadow Wolves To Hunt Bin LadenMarch 11, 2007
I found this interesting story on the Digg wire: Native American trackers to hunt bin Laden
WASHINGTON: An elite group of Native American trackers is joining the hunt for terrorists crossing Afghanistan’s borders.
The unit, the Shadow Wolves, was recruited from several tribes, including the Navajo, Sioux, Lakota and Apache. It is being sent to Tajikistan and Uzbekistan to pass on ancestral sign-reading skills to local border units.In recent years, members of the Shadow Wolves have mainly tracked smugglers along the US border with Mexico.
Reading this, I was instantly reminded of my childhood days of playing with and watching….. G.I. Joe:
Seriously though, I’m interested to see if this really works.
Update: Now that I think about it, I think the character “Billy” in the movie Predator was a G.I. Joe reference:
Wouldn’t the Pentagon and others want to keep something like this secret?
