Islamists using US video games in youth appeal: Sounds bad, right?

Tech-savvy militants from al Qaeda and other groups have modified video war games so that U.S. troops play the role of bad guys in running gunfights against heavily armed Islamic radical heroes, Defense Department official and contractors told Congress.

Then I read this part:

“Battlefield 2” ordinarily shows U.S. troops engaging forces from China or a united Middle East coalition. But in a modified video trailer posted on Islamic Web sites and shown to lawmakers, the game depicts a man in Arab headdress carrying an automatic weapon into combat with U.S. invaders.

“I was just a boy when the infidels came to my village in Blackhawk helicopters,” a narrator’s voice said as the screen flashed between images of street-level gunfights, explosions and helicopter assaults.

Uh… Mr. Congressman? When the trailer features a line from Team America: World Police it isn’t a real fucking trailer, OK? Jihadis are stupid, but they aren’t THAT STUPID!!!

Jesus Titty-fucking Christ.
