Brzezinski very deliberately NOT saying "no"

From the World Socialist Website, here's more on Zbigniew Brzezinski's astonishing address to the CFR on February 2nd:

Following the hearing, this reporter asked Brzezinski directly if he was suggesting that the source of a possible provocation might be the US government itself. The former national security adviser was evasive.

The following exchange took place:

Q: Dr. Brzezinski, who do you think would be carrying out this possible provocation?

A: I have no idea. As I said, these things can never be predicted. It can be spontaneous.

Q: Are you suggesting there is a possibility it could originate within the US government itself?

A: I’m saying the whole situation can get out of hand and all sorts of calculations can produce a circumstance that would be very difficult to trace.

As a poster called HamdenRice points out on this thread :

"Zbig is hired as a strategic consultant for what he knows, what insiders tell him, not what he guesses. This testimony is not idle speculation; this is what his sources are telling him."

It's pointless to ask why this story isn't all over the mainstream media. But why isn't it all over the left blogosphere?
