Kind'a makes you wonder what they're up to now, doesn't it?

I've never laughed over a cat being hit by a car before. I can't help but wonder if the CIA guys didn't crack up when it happened. In my universe, it went down this way: "Oh shit, did that really just happen? Aw, fuck. Fuck! Shit!"...then ten minutes of uncontrollable laughter. Then mourning and fear.

PDF of the heavily-censored CIA memo (whimsically titled "Views on Trained Cats") can be found here (scroll down to Document 27).

I like the conclusion: "for our purposes, it would not be practical."

I'd like to know who came up with the idea to use cats -- the least trainable domestic animal there is. But I guess the Soviets had already used up all the dogs...
