Some futures trading this!

Amazingly creative idea. But as with any creative idea, support is hard to come by and is spurned early on.

It has its share of creativity, hypocrisy, stupidity and insensitivity. Imagine someone placing a bet on Bush/Cheney/Rummy's head! They would have been called terrorists for instigating an assasination attempt(s). But here we have the Pentagon planning on a complete marketplace. They even managed to get substantial funds. Given the state of the economy, it was worth a shot I guess. It would give jobs to displaced software engineers, market analysts and of course to Taliban and Al Qaeda men on the run! A little encouragement and a few futures on terrorist attacks indeed makes trading a fun career.
