How can anyone find anything from a source you would consider reputable if it is an actual conspiracy? Do you believe the gov't would admit or provide the evidence to destroy it's own plan?
That's why it simply goes back to the belief of a pilot without the skills to pull off the mission.
Some people have actually responded with how easy it is to fly a plane. I call complete B.S. Go speak with an actual pilot who flies a commercial jet and ask him how easy it is if all the training he had was on a Cessna or flight simulator.
That, or just keep on believing in the talents of that pilot.
Summary and Conclusion
In response to FOIA requests the NTSB provided a CSV file and a coded FDR file. All contradictions between the official account of the course of flight AA 77 and these files appear to be traceable to missing data. In the case of the CSV file the data stopped about four seconds short of the impact. In the case of the FDR file the final frame was not initially decoded. Some researchers recognized that data was missing, while others claimed that the files proved the official account was false, as it appeared the flight terminated at a point too high to have created the observed damage trail on the ground.
Previous analyses were further confounded by uncertainty of the position of the last data point; failure to consider possible calibration errors in the pressure altimeter data, caused by high speed and low altitude; and false information in the NTSB flight animation.
The recent complete decoding of the FDR file has enlarged and clarified the information available and has thereby enabled resolution of the contradictions. It is clear that this file supports the official account of the course of flight AA 77 and the consequent impact with the Pentagon. The file thus also supports the majority of eyewitness reports.

Some people have pointed out that Hanjour had his commercial pilots license.
You don't get them out of a cracker jack box now do you?
