More Detail on Rigged War Games

I’d previously seen the discussion of “Red Force” commander Paul Van Riper having quit in protest midway through the Millenium Challenge 02 war games when the people running the test kept rigging it so that “Blue Force” (the US player) would win. Now there’s a story from Slate that puts the story in context with the recent statement by Tommy Franks about the enemy being different than the one we war-gamed against: War-Gamed. The article includes a link to the article in Army Times where the story originally broke, after a copy of Van Riper’s scathing email was leaked to them: War games rigged?

The Army Times piece has a lot more detail on what actually happened at the games than I’d previously seen.
