zwykły pretekst
Explanation:
pretext - a pretended reason for doing something that is used to hide the real reason

mam wrażenie, że ktoś sobie utworzył od tego niekoniecznie istniejący przymiotnik - pretextual

pasuje to do kontekstu
"uzasadnienia były zwykłym pretekstem", "uzasadnienia były nieuzasadnione i pretekstowe"
