CORRECTION
 
We reported that a pre-invasion War Game resulted in victory for U.S. forces in Iraq. In fact, the U.S. forces were stymied by a persistent, low-tech insurgency. The game was then cancelled, the Marine General who commanded the insurgent forces resigned in protest, and the game was then replayed until the desired outcome was achieved. We regret any confusion caused by our mistake.
