Today I think I will make up a word: Why-wash.

"Why-wash" has precisely the same meaning as the metaphorically-applied "eye-wash" ... an explanation or description that seems to answer a question but is thin-to-useless with application ... and hence blurs, rather than clarifies, what is seen or addressed.

I'm not sure if I will submit "why-wash" to the OED, but I'll consider it.
