I watched Thornburgh and the other two bozos for about ten minutes this morning. That was all the time I needed to see they were acting strictly as a hired guns for the university and deserved no credibility whatsoever.
From his own mouth, Thornburgh claimed the SINGLE MOST MAJOR flaw in the Freeh Report was the fact that none of the four principals in authority at the university, the president, a vice president, the athletic director and Paterno, had been among the 482 people interviewed for the report, making it seem that Freeh had deliberately failed to interview them in an attempt to railroad them. But of course, the fact is that Freeh couldn’t interview them because their own lawyers refused to allow them to be interviewed!
Thornburgh’s report is a joke. It’s an attempt to muddy the waters and exculpate a once great university from the consequences of the egregious failures of its own leaders. It will be little noted and will cause no changes whatsoever to the sanctions assessed against Penn State.
Spot on. Well done.
