    If they're published there is no interpretation.
    You did not care for the reasons and so leaned on interpretation to cloud it.
    We're your boys right to do so ? Of course not but following rules is not part of the donkey playbook.

    What the government says is the objective, and what the real objective is, sometimes are two different things.

    Certainly was with LBJ but other times it isnt.
    Some like to think Bush was on some personal vendetta with Iraq because it sounded better than the actual.

    What the government says is the objective, and what the real objective is, sometimes are two different things regardless of the party of the president at the time.
