Perhaps flight 93 was meant for the Sears Tower. Maybe the hijackers abored flight 93 found out the White House had not been hit. Remember the flight that hit the Pentagon was headed for the White House when it turned around and hit the Pentagon instead. Everyone assumes that flight 93 was meant for the White House or the capital.

He spent up to five hours at the airport, then checked into a hotel in Barajas, a town by the airport. Atta, an Egyptian, was accompanied by a 41-year-old man who registered under the name Iqbal Afzal Admat and showed an Irish passport. Hotel records indicate they made lengthy phone calls to Hamburg, Germany and Manchester, England.
I heard a rumor of suspicions that someone in the Irish government was issuing passports to terrorists. This is the first time that I have seen this in print. Do you have more information about the Irish connection?

Interesting. I'll have to add this one to the files.
The absence of other hotel stays, signed receipts or credit card stubs has led investigators to believe that the men may have met in a safe house provided by other al-Qaida operatives in Spain.
