A Rational Explanation

I heard Fox Mulder recently say that he was looking for a rational explanation for some mystery that was bedeviling him.

I think this is an error.
I think he should have said that he was undertaking a rational search for an explanation; the explanation for mysterious events is under no obligation to be "rational". If it were, there would be no mysteries.
