"In my view it was released to see if there would be any public outrage. Expecting that the administration would be forced into releasing some type of official unclassifed document in the near future, this was a way of determining how specific they would need to be in order to satisfy John Q Sheeple."
If it were 'leaked' to gauge the level of public outrage, you may be right.
"Also, I honestly think they just don't care anymore. They know nearly 80% of Americans no longer believe the official story of 9/11, they know that at least a majority of people know wall-street and DC are enriching themselves at the expense of taxpayers and the unborn, they know that everyone is aware Iraq had no weapons of mass distruction, they assassinated a head of State (Qadaffi) and Americans shrugged, they admitted they were funding Al-CIA-DA and funneling weapons to them to try and kill Assad, and got only yawns...so really...I just can't imagine that they think there is anything they can't do."
That, they most certainly don't. I've been aware of all the NWO and Patriot stuff since the late 90's, but it wasn't until 2005 Katrina that I went 'holy shit, this is their beta test!' Because for the 1st time under a GOP admin, they declared martial law in a large metropolitan American city, and physically confiscated guns, brought in private mercenary firms to guard them, using the excuse of (for the statists who do believe in govt policing) 'see we need private mercenaries to be our police' even though the state-national guards 'missing in action' from their duties (what they were designed to tackle: natural disasters, etc) and were busy doing what they shouldn't be: engaged in illegal wars and occupying Iraq.
Not to mention, the whole NOLA-Katrina debacle became their de facto massive, public, false flag drill to gauge what happens to a large city when SHTF, the sheeple's response, level of chaos, and to gauge just how long and just how much the policestate can get away with.
But since all covert tyrannical mechanisms eventually have to surface and become overt and ubiquitous to entropy into what they've always envisioned and manifest into reality, this is 'their' time, and that's probably why they don't care if the sheeple know anymore.
then again, those who lie, murder on whim, never really 'cared' about what we think, though in the abstract they do, as all policestate expend 90% of their resources in propaganda, precisely because even a slave needs some level of voluntary acceptance of being a slave to rationalize to himself/herself to remain a slave; that living free is more dangerous to the comfort of being fed or housed, even though they can't leave and are always under the thumb of someone else.
Besides, from the Ruling Class' POV, it's always 'cheaper' to have the slaves police themselves and each other. That's why our entire world is so filled with daily propaganda to a hilariously lunatic level.
Yup, it's just a matter of time how all this pans out.
Predictions in due Time...
