This is a random date...sleep well.
...if you watch it in full, you will notice that towards the end Omar mentions a landmark and date as a possible time for a Terrorist (or false-flag) attack.
From 2:21, he says, "Why don't you go to the Washington Monument...take the family...let's say October 12th 2009. Around 3:04..."
He goes on to say: "I think you will see that Al Qaeda is very good at organising things..."

I can't find the book they mentioned anywhere, but why in the world would they have an "Al Queda Operative" give a date for a terrorist attack as a joke? "Take your kids to the Washington Monument" at a particular date and time and "see how good Al Queda is at organizing attacks"?? That's no joke.
Are we absolutely positive that "The Onion" by any chance didn't utilize any real "Al Queda Operatives"?
