Flame On!

This is a surprise to just about nobody.  Still, the story reads as though it's blaming Israel for ... something.  So ... is this like playing "good cop/bad cop"?  Like saying, "Sure, Iran, we and Israel teamed up to make this awesome cyberweapon to eat your computers, but then those darn loose-cannon Israelis went off and did stuff on their own, so you should be better to us since we're not like that"?  (Good luck with that, pal.)  On a geekier note, I'm tickled that Flame hid by masquerading as a routine Microsoft software update.  On a nerdier note, I'm tickled again that the thing is called Flame and that it was part of an operation code-named Olympic Games.
