This camel was stuck in a mine field. So some concerned folks got together and rescued it, using a helicopter. Yay team! They put a bag over its head so that it wouldn't panic.

The Mrs. reports that on public radio yesterday they were explaining a method of drug-smuggling that the Afghans have come up with. She thinks this isn't exactly right, it's all from memory, but... you take a camel to where you want the drugs to be and have her give birth. You take the baby away, then take the mother to where the drugs are. Pack the drugs on her back, then she will walk - remembering the whole way, even across shifting sands - back to where the baby is.

What camels? All I saw in DC were vultures. ;-)

Call it the dirty old man in me, but I think they put the bag over it's head for another reason. It gets awful lonely out there in the desert...

Lemme get this straight....they put a bag over its head, hooked it to a helicopter, and flew it through the air over a mine field...and it wasn't supposed to panic?

Well, at least their hearts were in the right place...

I dunno. No one would notice a bunch of rider-less camels with baggage on their backs, wandering across the landscape? No one would think it odd? No one would just decide to snag one of those neat-looking unattached camels for themselves?

Imagine any large city, and a BMW standing at a traffic light, keys in the ignition, no owner in sight... how long would it last?

I think if I were running drugs in the Mideast, I would find some more secure way to do it. I wouldn't trust a camel to be a mule, so to speak.
