Top spy echos Biden's warning

A few weeks ago I posted comments made by Joe Biden and Colin Powell of something big that is brewing on the horizon. Something that is probably going to happen this January, and will probably not only effect Americans but possibly the whole world.

Well now the top intelligence officer Mike McConnell is saying the same thing as Biden. I find it amazing on how some many high ranking officials know that something is going to happen, but yet we are kept in the dark.

Spy chief says U.S. vulnerable in president's first year

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The nation's chief intelligence official warned Thursday that a new president's first year in office is the most perilous time for the country.

"I would say the period of most vulnerability for the United States is the first year of a new president," Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell told an annual conference of intelligence officials and contractors in Nashville, Tennessee, on Thursday.

McConnell cited the attack on the World Trade Center shortly after Bill Clinton took over the presidency in 1993 and the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington, which occurred less than eight months after George W. Bush took the oath of office.

McConnell's comments seemed similar to those made recently by Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden, who was criticized when he suggested his running mate Barack Obama would be tested by an international crisis within his first six months in office. Biden referred to it as a "generated crisis to test the mettle" of Obama.
