Dowsing for bombs: Maker of useless bomb detectors convicted of fraud.

Dowsing for bombs: Maker of useless bomb detectors convicted of fraud..

This is depressing and hilarious.  The US has known for years that these things were fake and tried to convince our Iraqi counterparts of that fact to no avail.  I always suspected that the ministry that was in charge of awarding the contracts was getting bribed to purchase these useless “bomb detectors,” but perhaps they were just painfully gullible.  Or their pride was too involved to admit that they had been fooled.  Maybe that will be the sequel to this article, it will be interesting to see how much longer the Iraqi military continues to use these things.
