Colin Powell, retired Secretary of State to Bush, has gone on the record, predicting a crisis on January 20th/21st. Although this sounds like a doomsday warning, what is not mentioned is that January 20th is the date Barack Obama is inaugurated. Reading between the lines, I think he's saying that by that date he will be walking into a crisis that's already raging, or perhaps, an event has been timed to coincide with this date. Bush may have a deal in place that gives Israel the green light to attack Iran once Bush has left office. Whatever he's talking about, when does he think we should know about it?
But that's not all. Joe Biden has similarly gone on record stating that Obama will be tested by an international crisis in the first 6 months of his presidency. It will be a "generated" crisis. Again, when do you think we will be let in on the secret? After it's too late?
