Not a proven liar? Give me a break.
Yea, I figured that was where you were coming from. I believe a reasonable answer was given and it was confidentiality concerns. For some reason, Geiger was trying to keep it from the press. Still, why could he not say he loved the Musketeers in that position? Do kids not love their parents when they are ready to move onto bigger and better things?
Most of what went on that was construed by some as lying seemed to be a result of the press snooping around and looking for a scoop and Geiger trying to not give it to them until he had his man for sure. Now, three years later, it is still construed as "lying." Ok, whatever.
