This story synopsis is based, in part, upon "The Bible Code" by Mr. Drosnin. In his non-fiction book, Mr. Drosnin details that by running the original five books of the old testiment through modern criptology decphering techniqes, (such as that used by the military)coded messages appear which predict the future. Mr. Drosnin's book is fascinating in its own right. Basically, the original Hebrew books are entered into a computer, with all letter spaces eliminated. The computer then searches for words which appear on a skip sequence. E.g., every fifth letter pulled out and put together. The information generated is cryptic but interesting. "Tim Mcviegh" appears on the same page as "Oklahoma" and "Murder" etc.
Now to my story. The CIA has found the code works (which it may well in reality). They search the code and find something like, "President" "USA" "Sudden death" "aircraft", and a name, (we will use John Doe for now). Because of the cryptic nature of the messages encoded, the CIA does not know how Mr. Doe is involved, how the events will occur, etc, they only know it will.
Now Mr. Doe is a "ham and egg" attorney. Haplessly practicing law (probably family law in some small town) without a clue about his appearance in the code. The feds descend upon him like white on rice, take him back to D.C. and interview him. He is thinking, hey, "tax evasion doesn't get me a ride in a private jet back to D.C. so what the hell is going on". He is, however, quite bright and plays cat and mouse long enough to get some idea what is up.
He is cooperative and develops a working relationship with the feds. They agree to let him have his life back, but the assign him a couple of "attendants" who keep tabs on him. They interview him from time to time on current events to see if his appearance in the code is a result of his knowlege, plans, opinions etc. They find, over time, that Mr. Doe's insights into current political events stunningly astute and useful. The CIA and NSC begin to incorporate Mr. Doe's analisis into their decision making. At one critical juncture Mr. Doe's advice is taken which places the president into the position where Air Force One is involved in a mid-air collision with a small aircraft. Hence, Mr. Doe's appearance in the bible code.
I like the idea of the prophecy bieng fulfilled only because the feds interceded so pro-actively. I see the interplay between the quick witted but small town attorney and the high powered and professional CIA agents as highly interesting.
