To answer your question #2, the director of the company that provided electronic security for the World Trade Center and Washington's Dulles Airport -- both involved in September 11, 2001 -- was none other than the president's youngest brother, Marvin Bush. From 1996-2000, Securacom installed what was referred to as a new security system at the WTC, and Wirt D Walker III, a cousin of the Bush brothers, was CEO of Securacom from 1999-2002. Interestingly, these facts have not been made public. Was it only a security system that was implanted during those years, or was it also the wiring for a long awaited plan?

Scott Forbes, an IT specialist working in the towers on 9/11, reported an unexpected power down for almost a whole weekend prior to 9/11: "We were notified three weeks in advance of the power-down, by the [inaudible] authority, that was relatively short notice to plan to shut-down all of our banking systems. It was a big deal, it was unprecedented; we had a data center on the 97th floor, so our originating services were all there. During that weekend, the power down meant there was no security, and that the doors were all open basically and also the security video cameras were all off. There were guys in overalls carrying huge shoe boxes with wheels of cables walking around the building that weekend."

The employees at the WTC were notified that internet cables were being upgraded, but who were the strange workmen and what were they really doing? Having worked overtime to get his company's servers back up, Forbes took the day off on September 11, 2001. While he watched the towers collapse, he said he was sure this had been the purpose of the mysterious weekend work. He notified many authorities including the 9/11 Commission about the unusual and long outage but was ignored.

William Rodriguez, a WTC employee, and the media's 9/11 "Last Survivor", recalled: "All the power was shut down. If there was power down, that meant that everything was gone in terms of security, in terms of access to the building so anybody could have gone there and do any kind of setup."

Ben Fountain, a financial analyst, spoke of unusual evacuations that were ordered at the WTC during the weeks before September 11, 2001. Other employees reported that the security alert was mysteriously lifted days prior, and bomb sniffing dogs had been removed. What would the dogs have discovered had they remained on duty?
