The mysterious coins were found on contractors with security clearances on at least three separate occasions as the contractors traveled through Canada. The report doesn't suggest who might be tracking the contractors or why. It doesn't explain how the Pentagon discovered the coins or how the transmitters function."

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
