Further Proof the Pentagon - and foriegn governments - had advanced knowledge of 9-11 attacks, and that war games may have even been a cover:
The Amalgam Virgo 01 exercise book, some debunkers are now trying to say it is fake. It is here at: http://www.ratical.org/ratville/CAH/linkscopy/AmalgumVirgo.pdf
It is discussed here at: http://911exposed.org/Almalgam.htm
The document was a creation of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) for a power point type slide show for Pentagon brass, heads of civilian agencies, and leaders of military industrial companies. So the government did think about and plan for hijack crash scenarios PRIOR to 9-11.
What I see just now is that this briefing book for Amalgam Virgo 01, which includes one page called "hijack scenario" and one page with "SUICIDE" planes - and perhaps also the plans for Amalgam Virgo 02 (two airline hijackings), and Amalgam Warrior (no idea what it was about) set for 9/11/01, and Global Guardian reset for 9/11/01 and Vigilant Warrior which sent East Coast fighter jets to Alaska and Canada on 9/11/01 - were also made available to "friendly" FORIEGN governments, agencies and companies! This may very well include countries like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Israel.
This presents a rather disturbing chance that ALQ/ISI/Mossad/Saudi Intel knew about our exercise scenarios and the DATE for them! Puts a whole new light on the Atta phone call to KSM that the "match" was set for 9/11. Did "they" pick the date knowing it was set for exercises, or did "we" set the exercise knowing they had picked the date? Global Guardian, which put three E-4B's in the air apparently with "look but don't touch" orders for NY bound hijacks, was moved from October to 9/11/01. In any event, the 9/9/01 OBL phone call to his mother - "something big in two days then you won't hear from me for a long time" - certainly let US intel know the 9/11/01 date, and we did NOT cancel the exercises that sent East Coast fighter jets to Alaska and Canada, and three Andrews AFB jets, minutes from the Pentagon, down South.
If you go the NDIA website, check out some of their stuff, it looks like it. See http://www.ndia.org/Content/ContentGroups/Divisions1/Strike,_Land_Attack_and_Air_Defense/NGCS_Briefing.pdf
The Amalgam Virgo 35 page briefing document was June 2001 Strike Land Air Attack Defense (SLAAD) committee powerpoint slide presentation made to the military, defense contractors, federal agencies and others. This is why it does not look like a military FX briefing.

Background Information from NDIA Mission Statement http://tinyurl.com/5raoa
The National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) was founded March 1, 1997. It began on that date as a result of a merger between the former American Defense Preparedness Association (ADPA), which was founded in 1919, and the National Security Industrial Association (NSIA), which was founded in 1944. The new NDIA is a non-partisan, non-profit international association with offices in Arlington, VA.
The association’s membership base consists of over 1,100 corporate members and more than 29,000 individuals from the entire spectrum of the defense and national industrial bases, from government and from foreign nations with whom the United States, through DoD, has a Memorandum of Understanding.

From 911 Commission Testimony
Richard Ben-Veniste, Commissioner: Well, obviously, it would be hard to imagine posturing for the exact scenario but isn’t it a fact, Sir, that prior to September 11th, 2001, NORAD had already in the works, plans to simulate in an exercise, a simultaneous hijacking of two planes in the United States.
Maj. Gen. Craig McKinle: Col. Scott, do you have any data on that? I’m not aware of that, Sir. I was not present at the time.
Richard Ben-Veniste, Commissioner: That was operation Amalgam Virgo.
Col. Alan Scott: Yes, Sir. Specifically, operation Amalgam Virgo, which I was involved in before I retired, was a scenario using a Third-World United, not United, uninhabited aerial vehicle launched off a rogue freighter in the Gulf of Mexico. General Arnold can back me up, at the time, one of our greatest concerns was the proliferation of cruise missile technology and the ability for terrorists groups to get that technology and get it close enough to our shores to launch it. In fact, this exercise, in this exercise we used actual drone, MQM 107 drones, which are about the size of a cruise missile to exercise our fighters and our radars in a Gulf of Mexico scenario.
Richard Ben-Veniste, Commissioner: You are referring to Amalgam ’01, are you not?
Col. Alan Scott: Yes, Sir.
Richard Ben-Veniste, Commissioner: I’m referring to Amalgam ’02, which was in the planning stages prior to September 11th, 2001, Sir. Is that correct?
Col. Alan Scott: That was after I retired and I was not involved in ’02.
Richard Ben-Veniste, Commissioner: Will you accept that the exercise involved a simultaneous hijacking scenario?
Col. Alan Scott: I was not involved in ’02.
Maj. Gen. Craig McKinley: Sir, I do have some information on ’02, if you would allow me to read it for the record?
Richard Ben-Veniste, Commissioner: Please.
Maj. Gen. Craig McKinley: Amalgam Virgo, in general, ’02, was an exercise created to focus on peacetime and contingency NORAD missions. One of the peacetime scenarios that is and has been a NORAD mission for years is support to other government departments. Within this mission falls hijackings. Creativity of the designer aside, prior to 9/11, hijack motivations were based on political objectives, ie: asylum or release of captured prisoners or political figures. Threats of killing hostages or crashing were left to the scriptwriters to invoke creativity and broaden the required response for players.
