Potential examples of potential 9/11 internet evidence being changed

I can't go into physical evidence tampering convincingly online (though you can read and research about allegations of such things online if interested- I've put together an example and a link to more here) but I can point to a few examples which may indicate that potentially relevant online evidence may have been changed, deleted or is no longer readily available. Here are a few examples:

You can see the page DCANG Yanks its Mission Statement for details on a possibly relevant online change. I'll go more into this one in a bit.

Blond women rule the world at all times (18.02.2005) apparently was formerly known as SENSATION: RUSSIA ALSO BECAME AN OBJECT FOR AIR TERRORISTS¦ATTACKS
a few quotes:
(Generally it is impossible to carry out an act of terror on the scenario which was used in the USA yesterday¦. This was said by the commander-in-chief of the Russian Navy, Anatoli Kornukov. (We had such facts too¦, - said the general straightforwardly.
As it turns out the way the terrorists acted in America is not unique. The notification and control system for the air transport in Russia does not allow uncontrolled flights and leads to immediate reaction of the anti-missile defense, Kornukov said. (As soon as something like that happens here, I am reported about that right away and in a minute we are all up¦, -said the general.
(I've covered that one already)

Portions of that story and the following web page quotes were quoted in Michael Ruppert's book Crossing the Rubicon, published in mid 2004. I'll give some further context to that information afterwards, so that you may decide for yourself whether you think that the website changes might have any relevance to 9/11.

The webpage Homeland Security and Domestic Preparedness Services for System Planning Corporation was changed some time between Jun 05, 2004 and Feb 06, 2005 according to the Internet Archives so that it no longer contains such specific statements as the following:
SPC has been a principal support contractor to the Department of Defense since the company's founding in 1970. During this time we have gained extensive experience in conducting threat and vulnerability assessments of programs and facilities. For the federal government, we have participated in vulnerability assessments of critical infrastructure, including defining risks from cyberwarfare, sabotage, terrorist acts, and natural disasters. The company has developed a detailed threat engineering process designed to address "outside the box" threats, tendencies, and objectives. This threat engineering process has been integrated with SPC's vulnerability assessment methodology to more accurately define and quantify risks to facilities and personnel, enabling managers to more effectively use scarce funding in developing solutions to preparedness issues.
SPC and TriData have supported crisis and emergency response planning for all levels of the federal government and for state and local (county and city) fire and police departments. We developed the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) family of plans (the Federal Emergency Response Plan and Continuity of Operations (COOP) Plan) used to guide federal responses to national emergencies. We have developed and conducted exercises to test responses to natural and wartime emergencies, including hurricanes, nuclear power plant accidents, and chemical/biological events. TriData has developed executive training models to address a wide array of threats, including industrial espionage and terrorism.
SPC has a distinguished history of providing innovative and effective physical security services across the life cycle of major facilities and programs for the federal government and industry. Notable programs supported by the company include the Atlanta Olympics, security design for more than 40 U.S. embassies worldwide (including the U.S. Embassy in Moscow), and security system design and implementation for U.S. Air Force nuclear weapons storage facilities.

SPC International (SPCI) has conducted numerous studies on Middle Eastern, South Asian, and East Asian political, economic, social, and military affairs for clients throughout DoD. SPCI analysts have traveled widely throughout these regions and have developed extensive contacts with foreign government and military officials, academics, and think-tank members. SPCI capabilities fit well with the federal government's current and future counterterrorism issues, particularly the cause of terrorism and other forms of anti-Americanism, the activities of terrorist groups across the globe, and the effects of terrorist activities on regional and global security balances.
TriData is internationally recognized in the areas of fire and rescue, law enforcement, and emergency response services (ERS) support. SPC and TriData maintain a core staff of professionals drawn from the public safety sector, including former fire chiefs, police officers, hazardous materials specialists, emergency management professionals, medical care professionals, and explosive ordnance technicians. The geographic range of local experience includes states, counties, and cities from coast to coast, and from the borders of Canada to Mexico. The company conducted the largest national technology assessments for cyber crime and infrastructure security for local governments. TriData brings hands-on knowledge and experience assessing and collecting information on incidents such as fires, bombings, natural disasters, and nuclear/chemical/biological accidents.
Since 1980 SPC and TriData have provided comprehensive emergency management support to U.S. federal, state, and local governments; to county and city fire and police departments; to international governments; and to private industry. Our experience spans the range of all-hazards emergencies, large and small, and includes disaster preparedness and response planning, documentation, training, and exercise; mitigation support; and post-disaster analysis and reporting. SPC and TriData have relevant experience and staff who are knowledgeable in exercise support relating to acts of terrorism, including threats at four levels:

Predictable -- bomb threats
Probable -- bombing attempts, computer crime
Possible -- hostage taking
Catastrophic -- aerial bombing, chemical agents in water supply or air conditioning

A bit more on SPC, TriData and one of their corporate officers, Dov Zakheim (Internet Archived bio info from Dec 23, 2001)
Dov S. Zakheim is Corporate Vice President of System Planning Corporation (SPC), a high-technology, research, analysis, and manufacturing firm based in Arlington, Virginia. He is also Chief Executive Officer of SPC International Corporation, a subsidiary of SPC that specializes in political, military, and economic consulting, and international sales and analysis. In addition, Dr. Zakheim serves as Consultant to the Secretary of Defense and the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy. He is an Adjunct Senior Fellow for Asian Studies of the Council on Foreign Relations, Adjunct Scholar of the Heritage Foundation, and a Senior Advisor at the Center for International and Strategic Studies.

From the DoD page on Zakheim-
Dov S. Zakheim was sworn in as the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) and Chief Financial Officer for the Department of Defense on May 4, 2001.
(a post which he held until mid April of 2004)
From 1985 until March 1987, Dr. Zakheim was Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Planning and Resources in the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Policy). In that capacity, he played an active role in the Department's system acquisition and strategic planning processes. Dr. Zakheim held a variety of other DoD posts from 1981 to 1985.
His government service includes terms on the United States Commission for the Preservation of America's Heritage Abroad; the Task Force on Defense Reform (1997); the first Board of Visitors of the Department of Defense Overseas Regional Schools (1998); and the Defense Science Board task force on "The Impact of DoD Acquisition Policies on the Health of the Defense Industry" (2000).
Since Zakheim was CFO for the DoD on 9/11, he probably was cognizant of the fact that as Donald Rumsfeld said on September 10th, 2001- "according to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions." Zakheim was a participant in the Project for a New American Century's now infamous Rebuilding America's Defenses paper which came out in September of 2000. The most famous quote from that paper being
Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor.
(yes I know it has been "debunked" as meaningless, but I thought I'd quote it anyway)

More on the SPC subsidiary Tridata: they produced in conjunction with FEMA a long (170 page pdf file) report entitled The World Trade Center Bombing:
Report and Analysis
after the 1993 WTC bombing

More on SPC - they make a product called Flight Termination System,
a fully redundant turnkey range safety and test system for remote control and flight termination of airborne test vehicles. The FTS consists of SPC's Command Transmitter System (CTS) and custom control, interface, and monitoring subsystems. The system is fully programmable and is flexible enough to meet the changing and challenging requirements of today's modern test ranges.

Finally, recalling that SPC's page used to say "Notable programs supported by the company include the Atlanta Olympics", we recall the Washington Post article Clues Pointed to Changing Terrorist Tactics
Foiled Plots, FBI Data Showed Al Qaeda Groups Might Use Airplanes as Missiles
quote (though the whole article is worth reading)
Because of the threat from jetliners, it has been standard operating procedure since the Atlanta Olympics in 1996 to create "no-fly zones" for high-profile occasions designated "National Security Special Events." Others included the 50th anniversary summits of NATO and the United Nations. The no-fly zones are areas of restricted airspace defended by fighter jets and antiaircraft batteries.
