I need help with a question regarding the planes hitting the towers on 9/11.

I was speaking with a close friend of mine, a former military man, about 9/11 and the different theories about it. I was telling him how more and more people were beginning to believe that our own government was behind the attacks. With that thought in mind, he asked me a question that I could not answer. The question is this: if our government was behind the attacks and planned on blaming terrorist for it, why use planes, then explosions to bring them down? Why not just use explosives and then blame that on the terrorist, since they are known for using explosives anyways? He said he felt that, if this is true, then what is the point of using planes? He said it's like stabbing someone to death, then shooting them to cover up the bullet holes. I would love to give him a logical reason, but I couldn't think of one. Can someone help me out with this? Thanks

PS
This is a real question, I am not trying to say I believe the official reasons for 9/11, so please don't down vote me. :)

Thank you

For the clear and polite explanation below. I have changed it further. I normally never change my post, because I am not in the business of trying to please everyone, but you made sense with your explanation. Thank you

Stop crying

There is no baiting, it's pretty straight forward. No where in there does he say he needs views, that is how you are interpreting it.

"I have something to say" says nothing.

It insists people view the post before they're told ANYTHING. And that increases views. This is a gaming attempt to appear on the front paged Most Viewed.

Now let's extrapolate. Imagine everyone did that. Sidebar, /top & /chrono are filled with absolutely informationless titles. You'd have to click on each one to see if you cared about it. I'd sure get annoyed by that. It doesn't scale. Don't do it.

Surely this person has a clearly stated question, but it's gimmickily obscured, and will be ignored by those who value their time enough to only visit things they know they'll at least have an inkling of interest in. So OP has chosen to cast a tiny net.
