I don't yet follow how this works.

Is this a correction to a post somewhere?

Probably a reaction to the podcast?
What has the Catseye thing has to do with lying?

The British govt lied/spread the rumour that he had such great night vision because he ate carrots.

2) To hide the fact that we had radar, which was what really helped him find enemy planes.
