Well, I guess the experts need an education. Cable cuts do occur in deep sea.

““Some experts doubt the prevailing view that the cables were cut by accident, especially as the cables lie at great depths under the sea and are not passed over by ships,” Murshed said on the sidelines of a conference on cyber-crime held in Gulf state of Qatar.”

Nonsense. The Straits of Hormuz are not “great depths of the sea”, and they are constantly full of shipping. The same goes for the eastern Mediterranean. Murshed seems ill-informed.

Further, looking at “National Terror”, I have my doubts; it seems to be a private enterprise with links to lots of really, really, extreme-right wing blogs that’s trying to look like an official US Government product. Also, it’s an old journo trick to headline a story about - say - aircraft accident investigators not ruling something unlikely out (they never rule anything out until there is good reason to) as if they were suggesting it was the truth.
