On July 30, the self-declared “intelligence expert” Juval Aviv predicted that a major terrorist attack in the United States would occur against “six, seven or eight cities simultaneously” within “ninety days at the most.” Fox Friends hyped it, conservative blogs wrote about it, and e-mails shot around cyberspace. Trent Lott waved his arms like a funky chicken.
There are just three days left within that ninety-day window. Do you think those sneaky, dastardly terrorists are waiting until the last day to catch us all unawares and devastate the nation? Or do you think the ninety-day prediction is bogus?
You’ll just have to wait and see. While you’re wringing your knickers, read this extensive Village Voice profile of Juval Aviv. Aviv doesn’t come out looking pretty… which is just what the terrorists would want, you know.
