Roger Clemens: "I Never Took Steroids, HGH"

The word "never" can be true.

It is appropriate to use it, truthfully, when asked, "Did you ever...?"

However, when the appropriate response is, "I did not...", the word "never" is to be considered Unreliable.

Deceptive people use "never" when "did not" should be used.  The word "never" allows the deceptive subject to, psychologically, move into a vague, nondescript period of time, almost as if to 'hide' behind the indeterminate period of time.

Statement Analysis of Roger Clemens, over the years, has shown him to be deceptive.

Here is a portion of his lengthy testimony:

Navy SEAL Describes How He Shot Bin Laden
Robert O'Neill says he came face-to-face with the Al Qaeda figurehead and "and then it was just pop, pop, pop".


Former US Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill has described the moment he shot and killed Osama bin Laden.

The ex-serviceman was one of the fabled Seal Team Six that carried out the 2011 raid on the Al Qaeda figurehead's home in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

But the highly controversial interview on Fox News has enraged military chiefs and other members of special forces, who accuse Mr O'Neill of seeking personal glory at the expense of the team.

Of the critical moment, he explained: "I turned to the right, and standing on two feet in front of me, with his hands on his wife ... was the face I'd seen a thousand times: UBL.

"Very quickly I recognised him and then it was just pop, pop, pop."

Asked where he shot bin Laden, Mr O'Neill replied: "In the face, three times. He just fell by the left side of the bed.

He said there was probably "half a second" between the moment he spotted bin Laden and the terror chief lying dead on the floor.

"[I] just walked in, saw him, shot him," he said.

Here we see the pronoun "i" used when he "walked in" taking ownership, this is probably true, "walked" an increase in tension. He then drops the pronouns before "saw him" and "shot him" reducing commitment. The grammar "saw him, shot him" does not sound right. There is no connecting word "and" between "saw him and shot him. The word "just" also lacks commitment.

A more believable statement would be.


"[I] walked in, "I"saw him, "and "shot him," he said.

"I was standing above him when he took his last breath and I heard it, audibly."

Asked whether he knew for sure he was last person to see bin Laden alive, Mr O'Neill said: "Absolutely. 100%."

Many former comrades say the true Navy SEAL spirit is the one exemplified by the team when they were visited by President Barack Obama some time after the successful raid.

"He was just proud of us," Mr O'Neill said.

"You know, he hung it out there. That's a big call and he made it."

He said the team were asked during the meeting who fired the bullet that killed bin Laden.

"My buddy and I were like, 'well, we all did'," he said.

This may very well be why he lacks commitment to him shooting him. Is he not sure who fired the fatal shot ?

"It's not about me. My guys got one of our guys into a spot to take the shot. The analysts who found him were working for years. They deserve the credit."

Mr O'Neill argues that by speaking out he will offer what he calls "closure" to the friends and families of 9/11 victims.

He even suggested he might be at risk of revenge attacks from former friends as well as foes.

Asked if he thought the Pentagon would be upset about his revelations, he said: "There's going to be people that are upset, because you can't do anything without upsetting some people, I don't know why that is."

The interview will increase concerns among US military chiefs that others on Seal Team Six might now also be tempted to break cover and that the mystique of the Navy SEALs, already damaged, might be harmed irreparably.

OT- http://www.wbaltv.com/news/police-search-for-missing-nottingham-girl-12/29674996

Missing girl- the article "quotes the parents, but whomever wrote it, left out some words or changed a few things...I tried to type it more accurately (not saying I did) but I added in a few words they left out..


mom- she's a child, she's just a baby."

"(ya know or so..not sure what she said first) If anybody knows anything, if somebody(s) has her, or if she...she sees this...she needs to...she needs to know that everybody loves her" mom said

"She just left for school, and everything was fine. She said goodbye to her mother and told her she loved her and never made it school," said Jasmine's dad, Robert Baker.

"It would really be nice to know sooner than later,ya know,
for the schools, to tell the parents, ya know, I found out that my child was absent from school because she didn't come home from school," mom said.

"She's a happy girl and she has friends and she has lots of people that love her and a lot of, a lot of people that want to see her again." Mom said

OT "The shooter"

"Very quickly I recognized him and then it was just pop pop pop."

The only thing he takes ownership of in this statement is "recognized him." Shooting OBL is stated in the passive...anyone could have by how he says it.

On a side note...the Seals had orders to NOT shoot OBL in the face if at all possible. Funny he keeps focusing on how he shot him in the face.

OT "shooter"

"I was standing above him when he took his last breath and I heard it, audibly."

Strong use of the pronoun "I" and speaking in the past tense. This leads me back to where he lacks commitment above. He does know how to use the first person singular pronoun. "Standing" increase in tension, which we would expect given the situation. This is probably also a true statement.

"Very quickly I recognized him and then it was just pop pop pop."

Temporal lacunae, a skip in time ?

Asked where he shot bin Laden, Mr O'Neill replied: "In the face, three times. He just fell by the left side of the bed.

The number 3 ?

"The father says his daughter JUST left and everything was fine..she told her mom she loved her"

Past tense. Not, she told her mother she Loves her ?

"The father says his daughter JUST left and everything was fine..she told her mom she loved her"
Just is used to minimise downwards, here he minimises the left.
left is noted as it can be 70% due to time commitments and 30% due to other things.

He felt the need to tell us everything was fine, making it sensitive.
Everything was fine is linked to her just leaving, this leads me to ask, was everything fine prior to her just leaving.
This sounds like there was an argument or disagreement about something which the fathers wants to avoid mentioning.

Everything was fine is often a phrase used when a disagreement has reached a resolution, agreement was reached, tensions were released or animosity ended.

Good pick up on the LOVED HER John, does he not love her any more?

"It would really be nice to know sooner than later for the schools to tell the parents that I found out my child was absent from school because she didn't come home from school," she said.
If these are her exact words it is worrying.
It is so passive.
No demands that schools should inform the parents their child isn't at school as soon as it is noticed, rather we have the polite and passive It would be really nice to know...

Something is off, do we know anything about the family dynamics?

"It would really be nice to know sooner than later for the schools to tell the parents that I found out my child was absent from school because she didn't come home from school," she said".

Is this quote from her Mum ?

"The parents"

Not tell us parents or tell me ? "The parents" is separation and distancing language ?

"My child"

For me i would expect her to personalize her and take ownership by calling her "my daughter"

We note the word "child" in all statements to explore for child abuse.
