Did Immature CFD Technology Kill NASP?

Application In Why Technology Projects Fail, The Space Review lists the NASP program's reliance on immature CFD technology as a reason for its failure.
At the time the NASP was started, the state of the art in computational fluid dynamics was just not far enough along. Modeling the entire flight regime to orbit both aerodynamically and thermally with the fidelity needed would have strained the high-performance computing capacity available at the time.

Is this accurate? Would this be the case if the project were started today?
