67. CIA telling their friends what will happen when Bush attacks Iran?
i.e. The CIA knows that Iran has the capability to stop Oil tankers from using th Straits of Hormuz and/or the ability to destroy the Saudi oil exporting terminal. Either would reduce world wide Oil shipments and lead to a subsequent increase in price for oil. What would the price of oil be when the world loses 25-33% of its oil production?

Alternative Scenario, The market dropped on April 15, Tax-Day in the US, given that 65% of all tax returns are now done electronically does the IRS know revenues are no where near what is expected? You no longer have the weeks and months to wait while the paper tax forms are put into the Tax Data Base, with electronic filing it is into the data base as the forms are filed. Thus it is possible that Revenues have dropped so much (do to drop in Income and the tax cuts) that you have a huge drop in people sending in their payments (people who have to pay generally wait till this week to pay, not till this week would the IRS realize what is happening and someone in the IRS are telling their friends who are telling everyone to get out of the Market for the Market will drop like a rock once the numbers are released).

When I started to write this thread I thought CIA, Oil and the Middle East with someone sleeping on the Switch for it is Tax day (i.e. No action by the PPT for they are all with their CPAs finishing up their own tax forms), but than I thought about it and the better answer is the IRS is NOT getting the Revenue it expected and both the White House, Congress and the Market has been counting on.
