1e6 advantage to the terrorists

Question: if one of us had speculated during August that a small
group of poorly funded terrorists could take over several planes
simultaneously and crash them into tall buildings, would the
authorities now come knocking? Might they assume we must
be in on it?

Reason I am asking: I thought of a most dreadful thing the
terrorists could do with very little money and make an enormous
psychological and financial impact on our society. They could
easily destroy a billion dollars of value for each thousand
they spent, and might not even need to die. If I post
the idea, do I run the risk of giving the terrorists a notion
that they hadn't already discovered? Or would I help
protect against such a fate by alerting the good guys?
Would the feds come visit me? spike
