The Great Game. Epilogue

United Nations troop movement and airborne sortie data from the invasion of Afghanistan was "distilled" from US Department of Defense press briefings during the height of the conflict, and is "replayed" in a 3D game-like interface. It is a game, rendered in real-time software; however, you are not in control of the action, it is a game that is played for you. Although fully accurate telemetric data exists for each and every missile and jet plane involved in the conflict, these data are not available to the public, and thus an essentially "word of mouth" dataset is all that the public has access to. Inaccurate information, when presented in a media framework that pretends to be "real," has the potential to obscure the true facts involved.
