This clip from ABC News shows how clueless the Intelligence branch of the Pentagon can be. Some joker at the Pentagon saw a fan film of BF2 and made the claim before a Congressional Intelligence committee that terrorists had taken the game, modified it so that players could be terrorists and kill Americans. Luckily it was at a rare open session so it was all caught on tape.
This ABC News video shows that footage along with various interviews. They of course had someone point out that the games comes out of the box with the Middle East Coalition and nothing has to be done to it to play as the MEC and kill Americans.
And I mean really, how many terrorists have military helicopters and tanks anyway? You’d think our intelligence community would have been clever enough to figure out that the clip they saw on insurgent web sites was created by a European BF2 fan at home.
