I'm going to make a prediction based on nothing but some things I've noticed in the last few months and from life experience in general.
Prediction: An announcement on October 21rst, 22nd, or 23rd
of Osama bin Laden having been killed or
First, several months ago, I started seeing what I considered to be unusual reports of a "new operational capability" within our intelligence or
special forces communities. I don't have any links because at the time, I didn't think I'd be posting this.
If you have any links pertaining to these stories, please post them.
Several days after I began seeing these reports, I started seeing numerous stories of dozens of militants being killed at one time within Pakistan.
I've seen 10 or 12 of these stories since, all different incidents on different days.
I found this to be in contrast with the previous 6 - 7 years where these reports generally tallied the number of deaths to be 5 or 6 at most in a
single clash. Today, for example, it was announced that 50 militants were killed in the border regions by Pakistani forces.
So, all of a sudden, we go from 5-12 terrorists killed at a time to 20, 30, and 50? The original report of a "new operational capability" raised the
hairs on my neck and I formed a theory.
The theory goes like this:
We have had a much greater ability to track, engage, kill and capture these terrorists/militants than we have been letting on all these years. This
"trump card," if you will, has been purposely "garaged" for years; its masters waiting for the perfect time to unleash the new capability.
Two months ago or before, with what appears to be a tight Presidential race, I contend that the powers restraining this capability decreed the time
had arrived. They leaked some info to the press, which accounts for the stories that I read, and creates the illusion that this "new capability" is
only now in the process of "ramping up."
But all along, it has been decided that the optimal time to deliver the head of Osama bin Laden would be two weeks prior to the Presidential elections
in the US, and therefore giving a huge boost to the Republican Party in an unsure election.
Another thing I read today: In the last two weeks, ALL, save for two, al-Qeada websites have been rendered inoperable. Nothing they have been able
to do has enabled them to bring these sites back online for the last two weeks. They are paralyzed for all intents and purposes on the World Wide
So thats my prediction. We will be delivered, dead or alive, the body of Osama bin Laden within the next three days. Feel free to comment
