Dennis Miller seems to get caught up in the question of “who did it”, in reference to questioning 9/11. Why do so many people end up with that question? My thoughts are:
1) Easy answers are desired in this day and age. People “don’t have time” to do their own research. Look at the lack of research by every individual into what they vote on in their local elections. “Without a lead, it’s hard to follow.”
2) Perception; Threshold levels. Saying, “controlled demolitions took down our towers, and the Bin Laden group or Saddam did it” is one thing, but saying “controlled demolitions took down our towers, and our own officials, or intelligence apparatus were involved” is another. This is just how we have been conditioned, and thankfully, looking into 9/11 really helps break that very conditioning!
3) Subconsciously, and maybe even slightly consciously, Dennis Miller and others know that controlled demolitions is a more reasonable cause of the buildings collapses’ than a fire from a plane crash. Maybe they saw Loose Change I or II, maybe they have had conversations with friends, maybe they heard Richard Gage or Steven Jones, or Jesse Ventura, or Alex Jones talk about 9/11 before. Essentially they are asking “who” because “what” might be slightly established, albeit unrecognizable to them, in their own mind.*
*Furthermore, by answering that question, Jesse (or whoever is in this situation) should proceed with care; you are within feet of helping someone form a decision. An answer that the person doesn’t like will throw them back from understanding, or agreeing with your point because it may seem implausible, irrational, or disagreeable. If Jesse had answered Dennis quickly with, “maybe George Bush did it” than Dennis could just as quickly say, “Bush didn’t have the brains”, which is a rational response.
I am sure that there are more reasons. Feel free to let me know if you have some ideas why people seem to get caught up with, “who?”
