What about the Pentagon,if indeed a plane did hit it(and I'm not saying one didn't)that would take an extremely gifted pilot to fly that fast just a few feet off the ground, without leaving a mark on the lawn ,and hit the side of the Pentagon.

The piloting wasn't that hard.
Pilots have said how easy it would be to do as the 9/11 hijackers did. Remember, al-qaeda waited until they had enough trained pilots.
Afterall, successfully landing on an airport in the right place is significantly more difficult, and pilots do it all the time in bad weather. The 9/11 guys crashed in perfect clear conditions.
I don't think there is any conspiracy, except the one from the mind of Osama bin Laden.
Mickey Bell, Sean Boger, Omar Campo, Michael DiPaula, Frank Probst, and Jack Singleton, all of whom saw flight 77 approach and came within feet of being struck as it roared across the Pentagon lawn. Probst dove out of the way to avoid being hit by the 757's right engine, which tore through this fence and damaged the construction generator trailer at right:
Steve Riskus: "I could see the "American Airlines" logo...It knocked over a few light poles in its way." Mark Bright: "...at the height of the street lights. It knocked a couple down." Mike Walter: "...it clipped one of these light poles ... and slammed right into the Pentagon right there. It was an American Airlines jet." Rodney Washington: "...knocking over light poles" Kirk Milburn: "I heard a plane. I saw it. I saw debris flying. I guess it was hitting light poles." Afework Hagos: "It hit some lampposts on the way in." Kat Gaines: "saw a low-flying jetliner strike the top of nearby telephone poles." D.S. Khavkin: "First, the plane knocked down a number of street lamp poles." Wanda Ramey: "I saw the wing of the plane clip the light post, and it made the plane slant. Penny Elgas: A piece of American Airlines Flight 77 was torn from the plane as it clipped a light pole. It landed in her car. Now in the Smithsonian Institution's 9/11 collection. Lincoln Liebner: "It was probably about thirty feet off the ground, clipping the lampposts. I could clearly see through the windows of the plane. It was maybe going 500 miles an hour - when it just flew...into the Pentagon ... less than a hundred yards away."
