When I was younger I was easily awed and didn't take the time to look at the data from the other side. I'm passionate about the 9/11 issue now (apologize for the IDIOT comment) because most people I talk to that believe the conspiracy have done very little research and they are like me years ago; just awed by some viral videos. Around the world the percentage is much higher for those that believe America was responsible; blew up the towers, shot a missile into the Pentagon and so on and that just hits me in the gut. I don't think there is enough evidence for people to say America did this.
Occams Razor: A bunch of pissed off Jihadists used box cutters to hijack some planes and crashed them or a massive government conspiracy (with a dumb president/administration who failed in two wars) complete with controlled demolitions and missiles and nobody involved slips up?
