However, a careful analysis of Bin Laden’s previous actions and of the speech shows that those dates are probably not accurate.
It is very unlikely that Bin Laden intended three “Gregorian” months; it is far more likely that he intended three “Islamic”, or lunar, months.
If we take the date of airing of the speech as the beginning of the three month window, and use the first broadcast date of April 14, we can calculate the actual ending date. April 14 on the Islamic calendar is the 24th day of the month Safar. Three months from Safar would be the 24th day of Jumada al Awil, or Jumada I.
The 24th of Jumada al Awil falls this year on July 11.

Remember how off-guard 9-11 caught us??
Can you imagine coming out of church, waking up late, coming in from the garden etc... and hearing of a massive attack that is claiming/claimed many many lives.
That would be psycalogical at it's worst.

Yes Sunday is usually very quiet however, if they are planning the use of a nuke of dirty bomb or some other such thing, wouldn't detonating something like this at say a baseball stadium by a perfect place to do it? There is ALWAYS baseball on Sunday and that is when the stadiums are generally filled to capacity since most people are off work.
Sunday could be the day. But then again, 15 minutes from now could be the time. We just don't know.
