Here's one for you. I was talking to a Chechen terrorism expert BEFORE the Boston attack and he assured me that Chechens or people trained in Chechnya will at some point be attacking the U.S. Anyway, a couple of weeks later Dennis Miller is interviewing Mark Steyn and I call in with my Libya/al-Qaeda spiel. Dennis tries to diss me as usual but Steyn, his all-time favorite guest, tells him, "He's exactly right, we backed the wrong horse in Libya...." I hang up and call back, correctly assuming that Miller has no other callers. I decide to ask Steyn (an immigration expert) whether America should be allowing Chechens into the country. Miller: "[My middle name] in Orlando, we've got 30 seconds." Six words into what would have been a 7-8 second question, Miller drops my call and then drones on and on about how he knows my question was going to be too long blah blah blah. Flash forward to 4-15-2013, the day of the Boston bombing. Had a few beers with my buddy, and we're talking about the next terrorist attack. Chechens and cyberterrorists mainly. I know, I'll call up "the only conscious strategic thinker" in western civilization (according to a review of one of his books). Never talked to the man before. His latest book is "Uncivilization." I start talking with a bemused Greg Copley at 2:45pm and I end it at 2:49pm (2:44pm-2:48pm according to my phone log, but my phone clock runs around 40 sec slow. Copley kept saying "brilliant" to my every observation (he's Australian). My first question: "What do 'you' know that 'we' don't?" (i.e., have you heard any rumors of upcoming terrorist attacks?) We end our discussion talking about the future of the nation-state. Twenty minutes later I hear about the Boston bombing. A day later the media says the bombing happened "around 3pm" and "2:57pm." Several days later the final FBI timeline reveals: first bomb on ground at 2:45pm. First bomb blows at 2:49pm.
