Crow face recognition with military implications?

A very interesting news tidbit about University of Washington professor John Marzluff‘s amazing crow research, and how the military approached him to see if the uncanny ability for crows to recognize faces could be used to search for someone such as Osama Bin Laden.

My feathered friends never cease to amaze me, and since I know they can recognize faces that are friendly as well (i.e. those with food), I must work on gathering my own personal murder and see if I can coax them into doing my bidding.
