The Threats We Face

Coke Promotion Prompts Security Measures (AP)

AP - There's a new security threat at some of the nation's military bases — and it looks uncannily like a can of Coke. Specially rigged Coke cans, part of a summer promotion, contain cell phones and global positioning chips. That has officials at some installations worried the cans could be used to eavesdrop, and they are instituting protective measures.

Coke wasn't scary enough, evidently. Now it might contain some kind of secret electronic device—and still, presumably, produce a convincing Coke-like slosh when shaken. No reason for that to alarm anybody, surely.
