I'd agree that the connection to Friday the 13th is sketchy at best. I honestly don't believe that 9/11 was picked because it coincides with the 911 emergency response number. Any operation of that scale would simply be run on the day it stood the greatest chance of success. Maybe Tuesday meant less air traffic, or something, but I'd bet that these number and date theories don't hold any water.
Now, if you're talking about staging an attack on Christmas or Memorial Day or Independence Day or something, I'll buy your 'targeted date' philosophy, but anyone wanting to successfully complete an operation would likely plan to pull that operation of at a time of greatest success, not coincidence with a particular date.
A good thought, but I doubt it. The Olympics would be less likely a target on this Friday the 13th because this event is supposed to bring all nations together in a spirit of friendly competition.
