** Even off camera, the General is an unreliable/unconfirmed source. The conversation between Stomtonovich and Dantana goes: "You understand we're going to ask about Operation Genoa - and that it was a classified mission?" "Yes." "And you're going to confirm it happened." "It happened." Regardless of whether sarin gas was involved, Operation Genoa did happen. He never definitively says that the operation included chemical weapons, though.

Cause he wasn't going to get away with that bowtie without the [[DoctorWho reference]] being made.

Seriously, the Jim/Maggie sexual tension is getting pretty intense so there has to be some payoff next season. Also it's about time that Neal finally starts being more then just the token geek.

* It's possible this is the case, although it's unlikely to ever be addressed in the show. The Operation Tailwind allegation, on which Genoa is based, was never conclusively disproven - it was merely decided that there wasn't enough evidence to stand by the story. This is very similar to the status of Genoa after season 2. The only evidence left that Genoa happened is the interviews with the soldiers, which are both unreliable for different reasons, the twitter reports, and the report by the NGO worker. On top of that, we the audience know that the General did indeed say "It happened", even though he refused to say anything on tape. What we don't know is whether further examination of the NGO worker and the twitter user devalued the evidence further (I think the lawyer said that the twitter user was still alive, but oddly little was made of this. How did they find him/her? What did he/she say to explain the tweets?). From what saw on the show though, there certainly isn't sufficient evidence to prove sarin wasn't used.

Also it's about time that Neal finally starts being more then just the token geek, I could see him standing up to Jenny and telling her that she deserves so much better then the guy she's seeing.

** I came here to post that exact theory, and I'd LOVE it to go down that way, because at the moment the relationships on the show are pretty badly written, and the best parts of the show (the actual news stories) have predetermined outcomes.

** Jossed: Sloan and Don get together



The government set up a news network with false evidence, so they would report it. Then they would release other evidence that seemingly disproves the network and now nobody will ever be able to report on it anymore (especially not the folks at ACN), because nobody would believe them and they would look like idiots.
