"The truth about Raccoon city."

Um...what truth? That the outbreak was caused by a paranoid scientist, a trigger happy Spec ops guy and some rats?


No, the truth about the US government's involvement with Umbrella and their experiments. That's one of the reasons why Simmons causes the outbreak in Tall Oaks.


Especially bad considering Raccoon City is the 911 of the RE world.

What involvement? Unless I missed something in RE6, the only reason the US government got involved was Birkin tried to have them get him out of Raccoon but the message got intercepted by Umbrella first.

What I took from it is that, had the President divulged all of the information about the Raccoon City incident, the United States' credibility in regards to bio-terrorism (which had become a global issue) would have shot down drastically.

What I still don't understand is why he went through all that trouble if he was only interested in killing the President. Was the Tall Oaks outbreak a means to mask the assassination?

Nope, the US government was involved in Umbrella's bioweapons research(it's heavily implied in the cutscenes, and confirmed in the data files). One of the objectives of nuking Raccoon was hiding all evidence of US involvement. Simmons nuked Tall Oaks for the same reason. So if this got out, it would be like the US government saying it was behind 911
