This is how it happens

How might a right-wing conspiracy theory get started? Perhaps like this:

Rush gets things rolling by theorizing that radical environmentalists blew up the Louisiana oil rig.

Glenn Reynolds raises an eyebrow that Obama has apparently sent SWAT teams to investigate.

Confederate Yankee promptly gets all hot and bothered at the prospect.

Reynolds then updates his item with a correction that the “SWAT teams” in question were not literal SWAT Teams. That was just a figure of speech used to describe the teams. I’m curious to see if CY corrects his post or if he lets his speculation sit out there, now baseless.
