Days after Yemeni al-Qaeda leader Abu Sufyan al-Azdi was murdered by a U.S. drone strike al-Qaeda Core issued a call for revenge, referring generally to U.S. actions in Muslim states. Several Jihadist web sites have also been calling for retaliation. Ayman al-Zawahiri, the head of al-Qaeda core, explicitly called for attacks on U.S. interests. No specific date was mentioned, but the U.S. has responded by closing embassies, putting out travel alerts, and upping security for all inbound flights to America.
The U.S. intelligence services cite “high level intercepts” indicating imminent attacks. Other nations have also raised alert levels and Interpol has called on countries to increase vigilance.

Is this a hint about the date of the attacks?
