A massive strawman nowhere did I say he embellished every aspect of his story. .
Not a strawman at all. Your author accuses him of embellishing his story, and strongly suggests he does it for personal fame and fortune. You and your author choose to ignore the fact that he has greatly toned down his account of David, obviously because it contradicts the notion that he is embellishing his later accounts.
He accounts of Davi's injuries have been fairly consistent thus I believe they are probably accurate.
No. He first said "all of his skin" was off his body. Since then, he has said his skin was hanging loose from his face and arms. Quite a difference between the two accounts.
As I said, his original account of David was inaccurate, while his subsequent accounts were accurate. This is verified because we have photos of David post-9/11 in recovery.
That's also why it's a flimsy, petty argument to hold up his orginal comments about the explosions as "the truth", and accuse him of "lying" and "embellishing" his later accounts.
It's also done with an entirely malicious intent. And reveals who the actual liar is. Maybe we should speculate on why your author has such resentment towards Rodriguez!
Is he consumed with jealous hatred of the praise that Rodriguez has garnered - from the White House, to the many people around the world, who admire what he did on 9/11?
Is your author ashamed of something from his past that causes him to lash out at others who many people consider brave? Did your author once run out of a burning building, too afraid to save others nearby, still inside, and screaming for help?
If you had been trapped in the tower on 9/11, would your author have the courage that Rodriguez had? Would he save your life?
Or would he weasel out, just to save his own skin?
He'd stab you in the back before he'd ever help you.
