Amputees have star roles in war games

`The United States government has hired a bunch of poor souls who lost their arms and legs in accidents and has rigged them up with bags of fake blood so they can play wounded civilians in war games down at Fort Polk, La.

Not only that but Cubic, the defence contractor that produces these games, has also hired 250 Arabic-speaking immigrants at $220 a day (all figures U.S.) as “Cultural Role Players” in the war games. [..]

“The best way to describe what we’re doing here,” says one of the U.S. Army intelligence officers who plan the games, “is that we’re producing a very complex movie with a huge number of plotlines and a very high budget.”‘
