Turn Global Tragedy Into Quick Cash!

"WASHINGTON, July 28 - The Pentagon office that proposed spying electronically on Americans to monitor potential terrorists has a new experiment. It is an online futures trading market, disclosed today by critics, in which anonymous speculators would bet on forecasting terrorist attacks, assassinations and coups.

Traders bullish on a biological attack on Israel or bearish on the chances of a North Korean missile strike would have the opportunity to bet on the likelihood of such events on a new Internet site established by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency."

No, I'm really not fucking kidding. What, the Total Information Awareness Act wasn't cartoonishly evil enough? [cached]
