How to use deniable in a sentence?

  1. Norman Roule:

    Iran's actions are conducted in a manner which are both understood by the world to be conducted by Iran, but not to the extent that the international community can justify a response. In this way, the actions are attributable but deniable, attacks against oil tankers produce tremendous publicity for Iran and raise oil prices. The latter has a direct, if temporary, impact on the economies of China and Western Europe, and Iran likely believes this will compel them to pressure the U.S. to make concessions to avoid future such attacks.

  2. Isabel Hilton:

    Whether you're using fishing boats or civilian drones, it doesn't look as though this is official policy. It doesn't look like direct military harassment in the way that the incursion of a warplane does. And so it's a deniable provocation.

  3. Chris Christie in New Hampshire:

    I think global warming is real. I don't think that's deniable, and I do think human activity contributes to it.

  4. Ben Talebu:

    A highly deniable attack, such as the one on the hull of the tankers, would be entirely consistent with the past four decades of Iranian security strategy, which emphasizes increasing the challenges of attribution, overcoming conventional military weaknesses, and decreasing the prospects of escalation against the Iranian homeland for regime meddling.

  5. Chris Christie:

    I don't think that's deniable. And I do think human activity contributes to it.
