Bhutto and an Al Qaeda Press Conference

Understanding future warfare is the most important responsibility of those who must defend a nation from future enemies!

—Major General Perry M. Smith

Reporter and friend Audrey Hudson sent me an interview she recently did with Dennis Miller. In the interview she said Dr. Ayman al Zawahri is holding a virtual Press Conference. Reporters are going to ask him questions over the Internet and he’ll answer them. How they’ll be answered is up in the air.

In my blog “Political Predictions,” I suggested the ‘Number Two’-man would make global press releases from my fictional World Wide ‘Freedom Fighter’ Press Release Cable (WWFFPRC). Such an acronym doesn’t seem so far from the truth now, eh? My prediction is already coming to fruition! The deadline for the questions to be submitted is mid-January. Surely no respectable reporter will flatter him with any attention though.

Speaking of death, I was terribly saddened by the news of Madam Bhutto’s assassination. I was just thinking of Yitzhak Rabin’s assassination moments before I heard the news. From a security specialist’s position, I have—and am—dissecting the failures in her personal security detail. I knew she’d be targeted too, just like all the anti-Syrian, pro-Western leaders in Lebanon who are getting killed off. What a terrible thing.
