I saw the report. This guy hid from the camera, partially closing his door as he spoke to the reporter. Hardly someone who wants to make his role more important.<quoted text>
Because we know that when they are talking to a reporter, no one ever lies or tells a story making his role more important.
Humans are humble...
People lie, of course, I bet you even lie from time to time. To me, his story rang true at the time.
Just my opinion, which is what I've stated -- I don't believe he was lying, and you don't know for certain he was. There are a lot of reasons why he might have changed his tune, and neither you nor I know what that reason might be.
Again, stop pretending you're all-knowing and all-seeing. You do not know everything about everything, though you pretend you do. Allow for the fact that you might actually (oh, horrors) be WRONG some time!! You'll be a happier, hopefully less hateful, person.
