Causality is simply the relationship between an event and the effect of that event, and it is often (though not always) possible to see indications in the effect of an event pointing towards it's cause.
By using this simple process we can come to a thesis, that is, a supposition for what caused an event, and then do a little research to find evidence that either backs, or disproves our thesis.
This process used to be conducted by investigative journalists, but very little genuine investigative journalsm is still done in America, which unfortunately puts the burden largely on the masses themselves.
Fotunately, the internet facilitates this process and enables us all to become investigative journalists, to a degree, and to find was to shine a light on this question of causality.
