#8 Does anyone else find it odd that Ogabe distances himself from himself, speaking about himself almost in the third person? As if he requires a full investigation to discover his own state of mind and the actions he personally did or did not take. He makes the words "I am responsible" come out of his mouth, but only to pinpoint the "somebody" who screwed up. He speaks as if he is an external observer, just determined to go after the culprit, premised on the assumption that it couldn't possibly have been the guy at the top. Like a six-year-old making excuses and trying to evade punishment for breaking a vase, even in the face of evidence that no one else could have done it.
It will be interesting to see who he ultimately blames - especially if he loses the election - because he'll never accept responsibility.

#11 So what! When we start having us jetliners shot down will he still stand up to it? He has hurt our country to no end with this novice attempt at arm dealing. I hope he rots in hell.
