How do you know if it’s propaganda: Iran edition

I guess a large explosion has erupted in Tehran.  Iran proclaims that it had nothing to do with the United States or Israel.  No news here right?  Wrong!  Check out the last paragraph in this L.A. Times write up:

Exonerating archenemies Israel and the United States from any foul deed seems to some a peculiar turn of events, likely deserving further inquiry. An uneasy Iranian populace, steeped in intrigue and conspiracy theories, sometimes assumes the opposite of what its leaders say.

via Iran, again: No U.S. or Israeli mischief in explosion – latimes.com.

Huh, that’s interesting.  I wonder if that kind of criticism happens in the United States?
