First i've heard about it, but there appears to be some information on the subject here, including examples of past October Suprises.

October Surprise is something that happens before a November election, that garners support for one party or the other. People probably aren't saying that the Iranians have an october surprise for the US, but rather that, say, the Iran War will be the october surprise, or perhaps that the administration is sitting on 'proof' of a nuke weapon programme, and will reveal it in November.

thanks for replying you guys.

nygdan- no the thing that i heard about the iran october surprise was said to have taken place in 1991. im just not sure why ive heard and read so many people talking about it recently.

CX- thanks for the link...according to CX's link the october surprise pertains to a conspiracy concerning the alleged deal between the US and Iran concerning the Iran hostage crisis.

ok so now i get why people were talking about this in conspiracy threads and stuff. im not sure however why i am hearing this come up in conversations at school. and college is out i guess ill never know. maybe people think iran is going to take more hostages or something. i dont know enough about the conspiracy behind this allegeded deal. ill have to read more about it to see what the present relevancy is.

if anyone has any more info about this feel free to post.

thanks again,
