The Rumortoid post by Sterling today has me on the edge of my seat for the following reasons:
1. I really enjoyed CoD4, including the single player, but felt it could be revolutionary if it told the Iraq or Afghanistan war stories in a timely fashion.
2. Medal of Honor could either take advantage of the opportunity to create a compelling historical and relevant critique of US military action or inaction in Afghanistan or they could botch it horribly via poor story, propaganda driven story, poor graphics, or voiceovers.
The idea that they are examining operation Anaconda is interesting. This mission was followed the first attempt by the CIA and US special forces to hunt down and kill Osama Bin Laden in the mountains of Tora Bora, only to have the regular branches of the Military willfully allow him to escape into Pakistan. This needs to be discussed in any narrative covering the Afghanistan War. See the Wikipedia entry:
