I think they need to tweak their eavesdropping software

A Protest, a Spy Program and a Campus in an Uproar - New York Times

The Pentagon has been spying on student protestors at the University of California at Santa Cruz, calling a protest there a "credible threat." I guess it serves those militant youngsters right -- after all, no good could come from a school whose mascot is the fearsome banana slug.

Note to the guys programming the telephone keyword scanning in the Pentagon IT department: you need to increase the resolution on the voice recognition software a bit. The mistake was understandable, but do you really want to go through this every time somebody talks about having a "bong"?
