Basayev said he had deceived Russian intelligence services, who believed his terrorists would attack a government center in the regional capital and cleared a route at the border in hopes of ambushing them along the way.

Sure, but if anything it was a tactical mistake, not a ploy to let the hostage taking take place so Putin could "grab more power".

It gets worse - lots of conjucture that the Russians even allowed recon missions weeks earlier.

Dont forget that the FSB was found setting expolsives in Russian apt buildings - to blame the “terrorists”.
