I'll take that as a "No", then. The salient point here of course
is that none of these inconsistencies can be explained as mere
omissions in 1993. If the 2002 scenario is true, then Haut's
distortions of the truth in 1993 were active and creative. In
other words he made things up.

Personally I find very unconvincing the idea that he made these
things up in 1993 with idea of somehow protecting the truth,
whereas I find that brief affidavit entirely convincing as a
naive statement of his belief at the time.

But then what do I know? ;-)
