Someone could have been killed

Very important for the 911 operation management that no one was killed in this operation. Then they could have become involved in a conspiracy to murder or worse. It is a hassle to fight with real victims families in court, and the operation management could have exposed themselves to blackmail. As long as the story is just made up, with no real victims, the necessary illegal acts will have a statute of limitations and the reported lies could for the media people and the hired witnesses be protected by the First Amendment. Fake news is not illegal. Recruitment to the operation would also have been much harder if it involved a conspiracy to murder.

So they blew up an empty part of Pentagon so that no real people should be killed or hurt. Of course they evacuated the few people in the area before the operation went live.
