The Pentagon just conducted the biggest wargame ever. against Iraq, er, Iran Turns out we got creamed. but then we cheated and "won." Kristoff's source was a Marine. Lt. General named Paul Van Riper:
The people running the war games even ordered the enemy to disclose some of its troop locations so that the Americans could find them, General Van Riper said. And when the enemy figured out how to move its chemical weapons around so that the Americans could not find them, that caused problems for the simulation -- so control of the chemical weapons was handed over to the Americans, who then managed to destroy them.
