One doesn't rebuild with Elmers glue, paper mache, duct tape, and bailing wire. One patches with those- and badly if they don't know what they're doing.
Rebuilding is done with brick, mortar, concrete, sturdy wood, hammer, and nails.
O'Brien didn't "build" in 2004. He didn't "rebuild" in 2004. He stuck a Band-Aid on a gushing head wound.
That doesn't fix anything. It only makes it appear that one's "trying" while the patient bleeds to death.
