Lets be fair here, your government doesn't really endear alot of trust now does it?
If I was American i dont think i could trust the fedral government in handling kittens and puppies let alone such a delicate situation as this.
DONALD RUMSFELD , US Secretary of Defense, Speaking in 1976: The Soviet Union has been busy. They’ve been busy in terms of their level of effort; they’ve been busy in terms of the actual weapons they’ve been producing; they’ve been busy in terms of expanding production rates; they’ve been busy in terms of expanding their institutional capability to produce additional weapons at additional rates; they’ve been busy in terms of expanding their capability to increasingly improve the sophistication of those weapons. Year after year after year, they’ve been demonstrating that they have steadiness of purpose. They’re purposeful about what they’re doing. Now, your question is, what ought one to be doing about that?
VO : Team B began examining all the CIA data on the Soviet Union. But however closely they looked, there was little evidence of the dangerous weapons or defense systems they claimed the Soviets were developing. Rather than accept that this meant that the systems didn’t exist, Team B made an assumption that the Soviets had developed systems that were so sophisticated, they were undetectible. For example, they could find no evidence that the Soviet submarine fleet had an acoustic defense system. What this meant, Team B said, was that the Soviets had actually invented a new non-acoustic system, which was impossible to detect. And this meant that the whole of the American submarine fleet was at risk from an invisible threat that was there, even though there was no evidence for it

The thing is, if people studied history (going back at least 100 years) -- you'd see that the entire ME problem is the creation of England, France and United States. The West has systematically played chess with the ME people, carving it up and installing puppet dictators -- ignoring or even arming militant groups. We've fostered sectarian violence , anarchy, and allowed a repressive culture to flourish. And today, when it our little creation comes home to roost? Oh, well that's not our problem anymore.
