Over the past two months, the world has witnessed tremendous change in the Middle East; but one voice has been conspicuously absent. Al-Qaida has yet to make a single announcement on the popular demonstrations that have forced out autocratic leaders from Tunisia and Egypt, or on the similar protests which have besieged the governments of Libya, Bahrain and other Arab nations. Is this a strategic move or has democracy wiped out the terrorist organization? Michael Scheuer is the former head of the CIA's Bin Laden Division and most recenlty, the author of the book "Osama Bin Laden." He explains that, contrary to popular opinion, Al-Qaida's silence could be strategic. More frightening is not if, but when they choose to speak out.
