I have to wonder whether Pat Robertson even believes what he says anymore.

Evangelical broadcaster Pat Robertson said Tuesday that God has told him that a terrorist attack on the United States would cause a "mass killing" late in 2007.

"I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be nuclear," he said during his news-and-talk television show "The 700 Club" on the Christian Broadcasting Network.

"The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that."

Robertson said God told him about the impending tragedy during a recent prayer retreat.

The AP article notes that Robertson has claimed similar "inside knowledge" about elections, natural disasters, and domestic policy, but has been wrong every time.

And yet, he has a million viewers a day, has influence in the GOP, and has a legion of supporters who send him money. Amazing.
