I was awoken at about 4:00 AM by the screech of my encrypted SatCom system which I use to communicate globally with some of my former colleagues from my years with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force. What I was told is trouble . . . coming today.
According to the former colleague who was calling, an "air incident" is going to take place today over or near the Strait of Hormuz. I was told "It's going to be MADE to happen."
After that, I'm also told, "it's all-bets-off" and fighting will allegedly commence with Iran.
I pressed him for further details, but none were forthcoming. He just told me "today is the day."
I do not know this person to be crazed or to make wild, unsubstantiated claims. He works for a foreign military intelligence agency and his info has been reliably accurate for years.
I am attempting to get corroboration for this claim from other sources but have been unable to do so yet.
I do not like issuing news reports to my subscribers with broad-based claims like this, but given the activities taking place with ships in the Strait of Hormuz over the past 24 hours, with Iran taking several vessels, it could very well be an accurate assessment of what is about to take place over there.
So while I cannot personally say "today is the day" -- I have been told those exact words.
I guess we'll see. . .
