    I ask because ultimately it was a very bad idea that truly helped seal his fate. It really looks like the charge of the light brigade.

    And then to try and get Carlos to lie in a written statement? yeesh. How do we make sense of it all when there's so much lying.
    This is wandering into human psychology, but I suspect it boils down to two possible reactions any of us have had when caught up in a lie - continue down the path of the lie and justify its rationale by any means necessary, or provide a full disclosure/confession. I mean, why did Lance Armstrong deny doping from the moment he was first suspected back in 1999 but wait until 2013 by finally offering a confession following the results of the 2012 US Anti-doping agency investigation, all the while denying, suing, and attacking critics along the way?
