So now, after months of hearing about Army Lt. Col. Allen West (search), you've finally gotten to see and hear from him yourself in my interview. What did you think?

On another note, a heads-up from a reliable source of mine: Expect another Usama bin Laden (search) tape to come out shortly. Can't tell whether it's video or audio. But the chatter on the Islamist forums claims the tape will come out after a new terror attack (unlikely to be in the United States though).  That's all for now -- I'll keep you posted.
