    >>>
    Defense officials hope to gain intelligence and useful predictions while investors who guessed right would win profits.
    <<<

    I guess they figure there are some analysts out there that are well in touch with the situation and this is a kind of way to pay them for their insight.

    Sounds a bit gross, and I can see it being abused. Typical sounding Pentagon scheme really.

    If you had predicted a terrorist act, say Bali Bombings or S11 and bet on it. I think you would get more than cash from the government.

    I would expect to spend considerable time undergoing 'torture lite'.

    They cancelled the idea. Good for them. I hope these ideas don't come up too frequently.
