Unforeseen circumstances beyond our control

An Indian restaurant near my office has closed down "due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control and the current economic climate".

That suggests to me that the owners of the restaurant either foresaw the recession or have it within their control (or both). I just hope they've left the restaurant business to become economists.

To me, it can only mean that the unforeseen circumstances are not only beyond our control but also beyond the current economic climate. As in: not even the current economic climate is capable of producing circumstances like these.

Sounds like they were faced with terrible circumstances unrelated to the recession - and they're not telling us about them (killjoys)! Local protection racket increasing their 'fee'?
