I take back my nice posts on any related thread.

Partial recall
Real reason for transfer in 2007? Video and phone calls regarding target were deleted. They would have shown complete lack of ethics or moral values. Left calling card at target's home may show on subsequent footage.

Criminal mind. Concur with sociopathic profile similar to mass shooter with death wish for self glorification. Simply chose a tactic that appears ethical. A twist on old script.

Yes the revelations need to be exposed, so I don't condemn the whistle blowing. Not a singular motivation or intention but multiple and not all are selfless. Hypocritical and inconsistent with past actions. Attempt at moral redemption? Perhaps but fails because righting a wrong needs to be specific not transferred to something unrelated. Insert martyr escape clause, exit stage front and center.

Would he ever reveal his own transgressions? No. Herein lies the ruse. Point the finger and avoid personal responsibility. Classic. Not original at all.

So very sad because I was actually hopeful that real goodness existed. My bad.

Don't ask.
