Was this the Mother of All Coincidences..?
On May 8, 2001 - four months prior to 9/11 - the president placed **** Cheney in charge of "[A]ll federal programs dealing with weapons of mass destruction consequence management within the Departments of Defense, Health and Human Services, Justice, and Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, and other federal agencies…" This included all "training and planning" which needed to be "seamlessly integrated, harmonious and comprehensive" in order to "maximize effectiveness." This mandate created the Office of National Preparedness in FEMA, overseen by **** Cheney. 15
**** Cheney was placed directly in charge of managing the seamless integration of all training exercises throughout the entire federal government and all military agencies. On 9/11 Cheney oversaw multiple war games and terror drills, including several exercises of NORAD, the Air Force agency whose mandate is to "watch the sky."
The evening before September 11th, 2001, the National Security Agency intercepted a communication between Khalid Shaikh Muhammad and the alleged ringleader of the 9/11 attacks, Mohammed Atta. The communication stated, "The match is about to begin."
Were they "matching" their activities to the war games? Was the attack a rigged "match" between the defenders on one side, and the attackers with their accomplices on the other?

Should have been a red flag but what did Cheney do. Authorized planes to leave the New York City airspace and go elsewhere. Hmm-m-m-m??!!

While not true I also fail to see where any coincidence is and even if there was a coincidence, so effing what? Only a conspiracy theorist - who by definition can not properly employ logic and reason - seeks out "coincidences" or finds them in any way compelling.
You might as well just wear an "I'm with Stupid" T-shirt with the arrow pointing up.

No. "The match is about to begin" is the equivalent to "We're about to kick off". In the Middle East and in the UK, cricket matches are popular sports events, roughly equivalent to American football.
Nothing about the phrase suggests a rigged match.

Your premise is nonsense.
