Betting on Terror

A futures market for terrorist attacks? Dear lord, they really have gone insane.

Thankfully, though, the program's since been scrapped.

What that likely means is that it's been put in traction until the public and the press forget about it. Or until DARPA's IAO decides to change the name, and tinker with objectives, like they did with TIA.

Update: Noah Shachtman of Defensetech has written an interesting piece in defense of the Pentagon's Policy Analysis Market.
