Ahahahaha. Look, I have no idea what is going on over there, but expecting them not to have a good rational cover story is pretty simplistic. The problem, if there were to be one, is that you have no ability to tell what the truth is.
Sure, the above statement sounds good, but is it what is really occurring? How the hell will you ever know? Are you going to just believe everything your government tells you?
Hell, you government doesn't even feel the need to tell the truth here at home to its own citizens, what makes you think it is going to tell the truth to foreign citizens or tell you the truth about what they are trying to do.
Anyway, I've said in the past that I'm for information warfare over there... and as far as I'm concerned this is just a teeny tiny tip of a huge freaking iceberg that will be floating around for decades.
Just don't expect anything you hear to actually be truthful anymore.
