there seems to be a smokescreen that is covering up the real crime that was committed here - the incompetance of people in charge
Amen to that.
I suppose what really gets on my chimes is that the very democracy and openness of the internet has come round to bite the behind of those who are actually interested in truth and accountability.
We now see that the paranoid ramblings of conspiracy theorists on the farther shores of reason have as much standing as the saner concerns of ordinary people. And often more so, because they shout louder and their stories are more lurid, lending them to feverish cut'n'paste circulation. There really does seem to be no story so fabulous that some gull somwhere won't believe it and repeat it. To paraphrase Hannah Arendt, people today seem to have trouble in coping with the very ordinariness of the extraordinary.
It's certainly true that we need to seek the truth, but I fear it may be overlooked in its simple dullness while the seekers are distracted by a brighter lie.
