Imminent: hanging over one’s head.
About to happen, at hand, approaching, brewing, close, coming, expectant, fast-approaching, following, forthcoming, gathering, handwriting-on-the-wall, immediate, impending, in store, in the air, in the cards, in the offing, in the wind, in view, ineluctable, inescapable, inevasible, inevitable, likely, looming, menacing, near, nearing, next, nigh, on its way, on the horizon, on the verge, overhanging, possible, probable, see it coming, threatening, to come, unavoidable, unescapable.
Jon Stewart: “No worries! They’re not gonna kill you unless you’re part of the Al Qaeda Incorporated family … or one of its many subsidiaries. … The leaked documents lays out clear limitations of when terrorists can be targeted.”
Stewart slams Obama for insisting on a “broader concept of imminent”and the hypocrisy of bashing Bush: “We told you we were going to be transparent but we just didn’t tell you it was going to be about the last guy’s secrets.”
