Doesn't the pentagon hold many many people as well?

I'm sure the core parts of the agencies are working very hard right
now. They'll be in the field and in other lesser known offices. If
another plane hit the main offices of our security agencies, with our
people inside, then we would be in a lot more trouble. It's better to
have them in other places.
