On May 28, 1998, Osama bin Laden “hosted John Miller of the ABC network. Citing his own fatwa, he told Miller that civilians would be the targets for his next operation. He foresaw an apocalyptic outcome: ‘We predict a black day for America and the end of the United States as United States,’ and he said the leadership of Saudi Arabia ‘will disintegrate.’ Miller reported that bin Laden ‘put a time cap on it, saying that whatever action will be taken against Americans in the Gulf, whatever violence awaits, will occur within the next few weeks.’ “
