WHY rig the building when it would so much easier to ship a crate into the basement, loaded with an explosive, and gut the building that way. So much easier, so many fewer people involved, so much less effort....

The Capitol Power Plant began providing electricity in 1910; today, it provides steam for heating and chilled water for cooling buildings within the Capitol Complex.

Capitol Power Plant is power plant which provides electricity, steam, and cooled water...
The Power Plant provides heat, light, power, and air-conditioning for the Capitol, Senate and House office buildings, and the Library of Congress buildings; heat, light, and power for the Botanic Garden and the Senate and House Garages; light for the Capitol Grounds' street, park, and floodlighting system; steam heat for the Government Printing Office and Washington City Post Office, also known as Postal Square; and steam heat and air-conditioning for the Union Station complex, Folger Shakespeare Library, the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building, and the U.S. Supreme Court Building on a reimbursable basis.
SIANGANG (Hong Kong), April 5 (RIA Novosti) - Customs officers in Hong Kong have seized an undeclared Russian MiG-29 fighter on board a ship bound for the United States, a leading English-language newspaper said Wednesday.
The South China Morning Post wrote that the aircraft had been found among containers and goods during a routine customs check. The jet fighter was without engines and ammunition and the wing paint in some places had been peeled off, according to a customs official.
Preliminary investigation showed that the plane had been put on the vessel in Ukraine and arrived in Hong Kong for further delivery to the U.S. The ship owners had failed to file the aircraft in a special import license.
This is not the first time Soviet- and Russian-made military aircraft have been confiscated in Hong Kong, China's special administrative region, which enjoys a relatively large degree of autonomy.

“A select group of U.S. Capitol Police have undergone special training to access the miles of utility tunnels underneath the Capitol complex”
“The Washington, D.C., fire department, which serves the Capitol campus, also says it is equipped to respond to any emergency involving the tunnels.”
“We have just completed training involving the large underground steam tunnels that run throughout the city,” he said. “We have had limited exposure to the tunnels under the Capitol”
In the letter, the workers said that the police policy presents a security problem.
“This should be a real concern to the Congress and Senate as all buildings on the complex can be entered through the steam tunnels,” they wrote. “Realize that it is on a regular basis [that] we see people in the tunnels that we don’t know why they are down there."

...why is it BAD that they were trained to work in the tunnels? If they're regularly seeing people down there without knowing who they are then the police knowing the area in the tunnels is a GOOD THING as they can respond faster. And the fire department will know how to fight the fires there. Why is this a Bad Thing??

no disrespect meant, but if somehthing was so 'black ops' that even the people in the capitol building didn't have info on it, how'd you find out?
i'm not trying to pick on you, pace, but i am wondering where people find this kinda info when the people who's job it is to ferret out this info (FBI or CIA, whomever) cannot do so .
on another note: i do NOT advocate blowing up americans, but if someone is gonna start, i'd much prefer that the capital building go up while full than, say, the WTC.
there is a saying among police that is in vogue when some low-life gets capped. it is 'no human involved' it is there way of saying that one slug capped another slug. kinda like a public-service homicide, ya know? i think that saying would apply to the above situation (that is assuming only politicians and lobbiest go KA-BLOOWIE, and not some innocent seceratary or aide).
i am, of course, being sarcastic, but it does bring up a question that bears discussion - are politicians a lifeform?
You've previously stated that on the weekend of September 8 and 9, 2001, there was a "power down" condition in world trade center Tower 2, the South Tower, and that this power down condition meant there was no electrical supply for approximately 36 hours from floor 50 up.
All systems were shutdown on Saturday morning and the power down condition was in effect from approximately 12 noon on Saturday September 8, 2001.
When did it end?
Approximately 2PM on Sunday 9/9.
