“Now I want to make the case for secrecy in government when it comes to the conduct of national security affairs, and possibly for deception where that’s appropriate,” Bolton said. “You know Winston Churchill said during World War Two that in wartime truth is so important it should be surrounded by a bodyguard of lies.”

Everyone can relax, here's what happened:
Before the owner of the ship saw the video or knew about it, his "I heard it through the grapevine" intelligence got it wrong. The Phillipino crew members aren't going to consider someone took a boat to their ship at night and put mines on it. They'd naturally think a projectile flew into them.
No anti-Trump conspiracy here. I doubt more than one guy if even one were on deck at the moment of explosion and if they were, they wouldn't have time or know to look in that direction for a millisecond to see a projectile with the naked eye, if it even happened in day time. There's a 50/50 chance it didn't.
What if we should be questioning the admin? I do that with each and every administration, and the term trust but verify is what I live by, though they don't get the benefit of trust. Fool me once and all of that.
Trump will have his war. We are in the business of war. They don't call it the Military/industrial complex for nothing.
But what does remain, is everyone has something to gain from this except Iran. Israel, Saudi Arabia, US, and some of the politicians for re election.
