CIA Plans Own Video Game

After the success of America’s Army and Full Spectrum Warrior the CIA has decided to create its own video game training tool. The Counter Terrorist Center (CTC) is working with the Los Angeles based Institute for Creative Technologies on a project to help its analysts “think outside the box”.

"We think computer games are a really good way of imparting information," says CIA spokesman Mark Mansfield. "We don't call them games; we call them computer-based training aids."

An unnamed military official though is of the opinion that the whole idea is "a ridiculous and absurd scheme that makes Poindexter's project look good in comparison."

His comments refer to the online gambling parlor scheme designed to predict a Middle East terrorist attack, that was championed by Navy Vice Admiral John Poindexter and subsequently lead to his resignation.
