I'm a fan of Keith Laumer's (and others) series of BOLO stories, but the journey from here to there is never as smooth as one's memory would have it years later. Witness yet another innovation along the bumpy path to autonomous machines. It can't all be feel-good DARPA-type challenges, can it?
Via Instapundit, who fails to note the BOLO connection this time. Really bad strategy that.
