It sounds like a science fiction film, but it’s true: The Defense Department is warning us that Canadian coins are being circulated that have tiny transmitters hidden inside them.
The coins were planted on American contractors who recently traveled to Canada, but no one is saying who did it or why. China, Russia and France are all rumored to run their spy operations inside Canada?probably because it’s an easy way to spy on US.
In LiveScience.com, Ted Bridis quotes former Canadian security officer David Harris as saying, “There are certainly a lot of mysterious aspects to this.” Does whoever is spying on American contractors expect them to keep Canadian coins in their pockets if they travel to Iraq?
