Marwan Al-Shehhi from 11 to 175

Remember that odd CNN transcript containing the name of a September 11 terrorist named 'Mosear Caned'. Now, poster ewing2001 refers to a discovery of Ron Winn, who notes that the transcript has six names on Flight 11, and only four names on Flight 175. Marwan Al-Shehhi was originally listed as being on Flight 11, Atta's flight. This isn't a big surprise, as they always seemed to be together, and apparently were cousins. However, the official story was later changed to move Marwan Al-Shehhi from Flight 11 to Flight 175, presumably because the FBI needed a pilot for Flight 175. This reminds me of the late addition of Hani Hanjour to Flight 77, again presumably as the FBI needed a terrorist pilot on that plane. Since the names of the terrorists in the CNN transcript came from the Justice Department, and had to have been taken from passenger manifests, how can the FBI get away with moving Marwan Al-Shehhi from one flight to another? The whole terrorist group and their arrangement on the various planes appears to have been simply made up by the FBI.
