War game fixed

Guardian Unlimited: War game was fixed to ensure American victory, claims general

"General Paul Van Riper, a retired marine lieutenant-general, told the Army Times that the sprawling three-week millennium challenge exercises, were "almost entirely scripted to ensure a [US] win"."

It hardly seems productive to fake experimental training exercises. That's a lot of money wasted for a completely unreliable outcome report.

Update: Brian Carnell pointed out this story about the war games.
