It is reported in the news that cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, considered the biggest threat to homeland security, has been killed in Yemen on September 29, 2011.
Scaby complains about all the overtime for no pay, so if anyone is sympathetic to the poor bug, you are invited to use the Code Calculator to run the numbers and report back. See “how to use the Code Calculator” page if you are not sure how.
First date is 5/1/2011–the date Osama bin Laden was killed.
Second date is 9/29/2011–al-Awlaki’s killing.
These dates should be reviewed both back into the distant past (use “you pick” boxes) and into the future. Plug in .8 in the “you pick” yellow box on the lower left and you get August 29, 2011, which is within one day (maybe precise if hourly is taken into account) of the killing of Atiyah Abdul Rahman, number 2 in command of al Qaeda. That’s a direct hit.
While these three Code-linked killings may satisfy the force of time, I would still be watching the upcoming dates. The current No. 1 of Al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri is still at large, and he is of comparable stature to bin Laden and al Awlaki.
