Revising History Slowly...

Reuters has a winner of an article about the newly-released video of American Airlines Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon on September 11th.

U.S. authorities have said five al Qaeda hijackers seized control of American Airlines Flight 77, a flight from Washington Dulles International Airport in northern Virginia bound for Los Angeles, and flew it into the Pentagon.

So it's not fact anymore? It's only what U.S. authorities say? Maybe I'm overreacting, but I'm afraid that some moments in world history might be becoming obscured by conspiracy theory and "myth" accusations. Pearl Harbor and the Holocaust, along with 9/11, have more conspiracy web info up every day and in my opinion article captions like this do what they can to turn "fact" into "what someone said."
