Removal of federated tables

I have a database that has a number of federated tables which were no longer used. The host for the tables was taken down. Now I can't even open information_schema.tables to view the table names. I get an error "Unable to connect to foreign data source". Tools like AQT no longer work because they rely on data from information_schema. I tried issuing a DROP TABLE on the tables I knew of, but I am still unable to get to my schema.

MySQL 5.1.39 on Linux.

Any ideas?
