President Bush plays video games with injured soldiers

President Bush, during a recent visit to a rehabilitation center for injured veterans, found time to sit with the soldiers and play some video games. This begs the question - when you play some games with the president, do you have to let him win?

While the idea of wounded soldiers playing war games as part of their recovery process might seem a little strange, the use of simulated battlefields to treat sufferers of wartime Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder has become more popular over the past few years.

According to a White House spokeswoman, one game allowed our Head of State to "shoot the bad guys" in a virtually rendered Baghdad neighborhood. The veterans were reportedly confused when President Bush made his character run away from the battlefield to hide in his father's ranch house for a year.
