Fallout 3 Image Mistaken For Terrorist Imagery By SITE Intelligence Group

Wow, this one's a doozy! The SITE Intelligence Group, a US intelligence organization that monitors terrorist activity on the internet, found the above image of a post apocalyptic Washington, DC in a terrorist video entitled Nuclear Jihad: The Ultimate Terror. They then came forward with image saying it was created by terrorists to simulate what would happen to DC after a nuclear attack.

Now as most of you who have been following game news know, this is not the work of terrorists, but in fact an early piece of concept art from Bethesda's Fallout 3. I can only imagine the SITE Intelligence Group is felling a wee bit embarrassed right now, but I say kudos to Bethesda's art team! It makes me want to play the game even more now.

Any American governement agency and the word intelligence really don't go together, do they?
