How many states have launched their own probes of clergy sex abuse?

From Wash Post story in Chi Trib today, this ambiguous line:

States including Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico and New York have now launched their own investigations.

“Including.” There are others who have launched etc.?

What Post trying to say is that these five states have launched etc. There are no others, so why “including”?

These are writers and complicit editors who doing a sentence are like the messy person who throws mud against a wall, trusting some will stick.

Sloppy, sloppy.
