Somebody Has Too Much Time On Their Hands

There's some poor geeky schmuck at the Pentagon who really really wants to write a best-selling thriller with a thin plot and convoluted conspiracies. But somehow he accidently turned his manuscript in with his recent reports and we get this:

That's the only explanation I can come up with for the analysts at the Pentagon even thinking that this is a viable plan. How did they imagine the terrorists were gonna set up their nefarious schemes anyway? How were they going to tell their faithful subordinates which server, which characters, which code words, and how not to sound like a complete and utter newb? Maybe over email, encrypted? Because that sounds a LOT easier than trying to organise 9/11 part 2 over Barrens chat.

Well, either the CIA has sent in newbs or PVE to PVP transfers really are the end of the world. :)

I'm guessing someone at the Pentagon got caught playing WoW on company time and did a distraction dance to justify it to his bosses. I'm not "playing and online game", I'm "monitoring possible terrorist activity".

That's a pretty good guess as well. Waaay more probable than mine. (I was being silly but I'm still wondering how much they pay their analysts to come up with this junk).
