MORE EMBLEMS FROM THE PENTAGON'S BLACK WORLD
In what might seem like an April Fool's Day indulgence but isn't, the
New York Times today probed further into the emblems that circulate
officially or unofficially around classified Defense Department
programs (Secrecy News, March 24).
The emblems and patches, gathered by author Trevor Paglen, "reveal a
bizarre mix of high and low culture where Latin and Greek mottos frame
images of spooky demons and sexy warriors, of dragons dropping bombs
and skunks firing laser beams." Several of them are featured in a
Times graphic supplement.
