PB comment on the Night of Power

It’s worth noting that,depending where exactly you live in the Muslim world, Friday or Saturday night will be the 27th night of Ramadan, the “night of power” when the Prophet received the first verses of the Koran. It is the most sacred night of a sacred month for more than a billion Muslims around the world. Unfortunately for al Qaeda and its affiliates it might be a time that they choose to strike again as to die on the “night of power” is a sign of special favor. (Al Qaeda attempted to sink USS The Sullivans on the night of power in Yemen in January 2000). We have already seen a very high tempo of al Qaeda operations in this month of Ramadan so far, whether in Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iraq. We may see more before the Eid holiday on Monday/Tuesday.
