From Predator Drones to Scavenger Birds: Could Israel be using vulture intelligence agents?


Sudanese media was a buzz Thursday, with news saying that Darfur authorities had captured a vulture carrying Israeli spy gear.

The suspect bird was found to be tagged with an Israeli GPS chip and a leg band labeled “Israel Nature Service” and “Hebrew University, Jerusalem.”

Khartoum’s media claimed that the device was capable of taking photos and sending them back to Israel; but Israel’s National Parks Service dismissed the allegation, saying that both the band and the GPS chip were nothing more than standard migration trackers.

      Yet Sudan is still unable to fend off the hoards of nanobots from the Chosen People.

    sounds like Israel’s vulturespy program is a flop

    • Indeed, it is worse than I first thought for the ZCS.

      The Sudanese disclosures were actually the second recent flap involving Middle East Vulture agents and “Deep cover” agent “Selachii” has gone rogue, engaging in acts of widely reported terrorism in the waters off Southern Sinai, as referenced in the link InfvoCuernos provided.
