I found the original article well-written and interesting. It is clear that plenty has gone on behind the scenes. Given the emotional state of things, I wouldn't expect that asking some of the involved people gives you a more unbiased and clearer view of things.
By wording your argument as addressing "the most obvious "OMG, WTF" parts of this article" you have - at least in my case - lost any credibility when it comes to objective and sober reporting and I stopped reading. Which is a pity, because I think you might have been able to contribute interesting facts to the debate.
