They may not even know they have it - but it can't project communication, only motivations for the Rule of Funny. Whenever Martian leaders or officers are planning a trick, their grunt soldiers are automatically in on what's about to progress and act accordingly. For instance: At the end when the Martian leader looks like he's about to strike a deal with the president, the grunts look confused - but they don't blast their leader for treason or anything - they're just acting along with the ruse to convince the president that the Martian leader is serious.
