"Mr. Obfuscation" in Action
In this clip, Dr. Meehan explains that his usage of the term "non-probative" in an obscure passage of the May 12 report should have alerted defense lawyers (and, bizarrely, "councilmen," though why elected officials ever would have looked at the report Meehan never said) to the fact that the rape kit contained unidentified DNA from multiple males. (Meehan made no such claim in the Dec. 15 hearing; and, indeed, opened his testimony by saying there was no unidentified male DNA.) The implication: he just "expected too much" from his readers, who it seems, weren't that bright.
