Mystic SeerWay back in the futuristic year 2000, the CIA convened a group of experts from outside the Agency. Their mission: to gaze into the near future and predict 2015 would look like.

The result was a 70-page report covering everything from the rise of nanotechnology through oil shocks and demographic change to the fate of the global economy.

Fifteen years later, how right were they about the future we are living through now?

    Unless somebody predicted that the CIA, the FBI, the House the Senate, SCOTUS, the Pentagon and the Republican Party would all be dancing like trained pigs to a tune called by a half-black, racist, junior senator from Illinois, no other predictions really matter.

    If they wanted to see into the future they should try reading the book of Revelations in the bible.
