And let's not forget the televised version of that drill done in May 2004 one year before it actually happened.
Do ya think the bad guys might watch television too?
You can get a lot of ideas from tv.
And the towers powered down on the weekend before for 30 hours?? Now why would they do that?
Been involved in many shutdowns. They leave a paper trail a mile wide - emails sent out for weeks before warning people , informing them not to come in that date. Equipment (if electrical or computer) is disconnected to prevent damage from surges. People told to unplug their computers and leave off. Often have IT staff stay late to insure everything is off Then have to come in very early to power everything back up and test - lot of people are involved, yet only I person knew about it..... ??

And as per the video we have seen so much of, who practised the crashing of planes into buildings before 9/11?
The Bojinka Plot
Phase III: CIA plane crash plot
Phase three would have involved Murad either renting, buying, or hijacking a small airplane, preferably a Cessna. The airplane would be filled with explosives. He would then crash it into the Central Intelligence Agency headquarters in the Langley area in Fairfax County, Virginia. Murad had been trained as a pilot in North Carolina, and was slated to be a suicide pilot.
There were alternate plans to hijack a 12th commercial airliner and use that instead of the small aircraft, probably due to the Manila cell's growing frustration with explosives. Testing explosives in a house or apartment is dangerous, and it can easily give away a terrorist plot. Khalid Sheik Mohammed probably made the alternate plan.
