I remember seeing him several years ago on 60 minutes. I remembered thinking that maybe this guy was OK. He was talking about expanding women's rights, trying to bring the populace into the 21st century, etc.
He does talk a good talk, but it has become clear that he is as you say pure evil.
Nah. He's a fucking psychopath. I mean what kind of guy that wants a reporter dead does it in a fucking embassy to physically beat his ass to death and then chops his ass up into itty bitty pieces and smuggles him out? That's fucking personal man. If all you want is the guy dead you put two in his skull and you're done.
