FoxNews.com: Predicts Terror Attack In 90 Days

Reported by Deborah - July 8, 2005

Juval Aviv, counter terrorism expert, claims in a Q&A article for FoxNews.com,that Americans can expect a terrorist attack as soon as tommorrow or ninety days at the latest. Aviv is full of survival advice and tips on where and how terrorists will attack us. However nothing he writes is backed up with any verifiable fact or sources.

"I predict, based primarily on information that is floating in Europe and the Middle East, that an event is imminent and around the corner here in the United States. It could happen as soon as tomorrow, or it could happen in the next few months. Ninety days at the most."

Is "information floating in Europe and the Middle East" considered a credible source? It get's better.

Aviv tells readers to always carry a bottle of water and towel on mass transit so you can wet the towel and cover your face when the explosions occur.He later wrote that there will be several explosions and seven or eight cities will be hit at once.

According to this FoxNews.com expert, aviation used to be our biggest area of concern. Now terrorists realize that we will fight back on planes so they are going after mass transit. Aviv gave no indication of what terrorists he spoke to about this mass realization.

This article displayed as a headline on FoxNews.com throughout the evening of June 8, is no longer there at 11:50 PM EDT.The headline story has been suddenly replaced by a schedule.However, it can still be found under Fox Fans so FoxNews.com readers can maintain an acceptable anxiety level.

Comment: In light of the recent events, headlining Aviv's Q&A article as if it were credible fact is irresponsible and only promotes fear and confusion among readers.People are looking for information now and will be seriously frightened by this posting. There is too much blurring of the line between commentary and news on FNC and the inclusion of this article anywhere is not acceptable.
