Pentagon Lets You Bid on Terrorism?

aaronlev Re:place your bets (in reverse)! (846 comments)

This creates an incentive for terrorism by insane individuals.

Remember the case where someone tried to manipulate the stock market by putting cyanide in Tylenol?

I might not have the facts exactly right, but the idea is the same. The potential exists for someone to use this to make money, by finding a way to encourage the terrorist acts to come true.
