I was just browsing the site and found a message from WeBDevil. One line in his message caught my eye:

"Well, we could be led to believe the truth, and partly our, but, of course political leaders aren't going to tell the WHOLE truth, for many different reasons. I would (And am) go on with my life, live it, and research things that interest me (Astronomy, UFOlogy, etc)

-wD "'s why this note caught my eye. I've been reading the "DC Sniper's" opening statement at his trial. This statement goes around and around. You feel for the guy trapped in either his own mindf*ck or the mindf*ck delivered on him by his inner demons or some external ones. Anyway....check out these excerpts:

Excerpt 1:
Well, the whole truth. What is the whole truth? The whole truth, what I found out when I asked that is, Don't take anything away from the truth, which means when we take something away from it, it's not a whole anymore. If we do that, that's a lie. If we do that, we are deceiving. What's nothing but the truth? Well, that means you don't add nothing to the truth. If we do that, we [are] deceiving. We are telling a lie, so this is why it's important that we tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth. But how do we jump from the truth to the whole truth to nothing but the truth when at one time all we had was the truth? Jesus said, "You shall know the truth." He didn't say you shall know the whole truth and nothing but the truth. The truth. For what happened between that time and this time to where we got to deal with three truths?

Excerpt 2:
So we continue to tell these stories and continue to tell these stories to where we have to come up with the three truths -- the whole truth and nothing but the truth; and now that's where we are right now, which means if a person gets up on that stand and don't respect all three truths, then they can be prosecuted for telling a lie; and upon the law they can get up on the stand and lie and still tell the truth and not be prosecuted. That's why they changed it. Just the facts that we need. The facts should help us to identify what's the truth and what's not the truth and what is a lie and what's not a lie. OK. In knowing what our wisdom and our understanding, as we evolve, we knew how to manipulate things. Put something here that shouldn't be there, put something here that shouldn't be there, and became more and more confusing, and now we have science and a whole lot of other more things into it to prove that is the truth or to disprove that is the truth, and it became more and more confusing.

Excerpt 3:
So I asked Taliba. I lost my memory now. I asked Taliba, "Why didn't you tell me?" I done forgot all about telling her to be quiet -- like what these people told me. Be quiet. Go to jail, and you are not going to say nothing, and that's what I did. Taliba did exactly what I told her to do. She didn't say anything, so when I told her, "Why didn't you tell me?" she looked up -- looked down at me and said, "Daddy, you told me to be quiet;" and I told John -- I said, "John, so you want me to believe what you just told me?" and he said the same thing. He said, "Daddy, you don't know what happened. I was here. I know what happened."

Excerpt 4:
Now, what's an insane lie? That's the one I have a problem with. An insane lie. An insane lie is after you did all the lying to this person and to this person, moving this information and put it here and move that evidence and put it here and move this evidence and put it here, you start believing your own lie; and that is an insane lie, when you start believing your own lie. That's when someone really needs to lock you up in a rubber room, because you lost your mind; and that's what we're dealing with; and this is why it's important to know what the truth is based on the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

If something is added to it, it's not the whole. If something's taken away from it, it's not nothing but the truth. All we are dealing with is the truth. That's what we are looking for.

We need the evidence. Saying it, people, doesn't make it so. Saying it doesn't make it so.

Excerpt #5Mr. Muhammad this and Mr. Muhammad that. He took away a lot of people's rights. We actually thought we had a choice. Dirty glass number one or dirty glass number two and then we were forced -- out there I'm sure you all were forced to pick, thinking you really had a choice. Dirty glass number one, dirty glass number two. That's not a choice. A real choice will be between dirty glass number one or a clean glass; and for the next couple days, the next couple of hours, it is my responsibility to set a clean glass of what really happened on those days alongside this dirty glass; and because it's the nature of a man to choose and to want to choose what is right, I don't have to tell anyone that the glass is clean. Just because you want to drink out of a clean glass, you pick it. The only reason you would drink out of a dirty glass is because you thought you had a choice between dirty glass number one and dirty glass number two. You really didn't have a choice.

If you want to read the entire opening, it can be found here:

I don't know what to make of this. I just know that language and symbology and codes have been a key throughout this case...with the cards, references to God, "duck in the noose" reference. This just smacks of Manchurian to me and I wonder what can be found or decoded regarding the "Whole Truth" from his message. And then again, I wonder if he's just gone batsh*t crazy. I think both are probably true. But I'm not sure is the WHOLE truth.
