I think you're giving these people credit for more deviousness
than they probably deserve. Remember, they're just managers.

More likely someone wanted to get a writer onboard "ASAP,"
then discovered that most of the document-critical SMEs
had put in to take time off the last half of December. Here in
silicon valley the annual skier migration to Tahoe-Donner
began a couple of days ago.

Hi all:

Has your start date for a contract assignment ever been delayed, and you felt funny about it? Such just happened to me; my start date was just delayed from mid Dec to Jan 2.

Let me play devil's advocate: One might think that they knew all along that the start date was Jan 2, but, they lied and gave me the earlier start date in an attempt to knock me out of job searching weeks before the actual start date. After all at this point, I have already emotionally committed to the job and, as the holidays are now upon us, why not just take it easy until Jan 2.
