KMI-Masthead new



In a 2005 deposition, Attorney Delores Troiani (who represented a woman accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault) asked Bill Cosby:

"When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?" asks the plaintiff’s attorney, who is questioning Cosby.

Cosby answers simply, "Yes."

I recommend questions to be short, simple, compact and precise - more along the lines, “What was the purpose for the Quaaludes?” or, “For what were the Quaaludes?” This question violates that. Nevertheless it’s a very, very effective question. With Cosby’s simple and precise answer, “Yes,” the attorney proved what is extremely difficult to prove – intent. Not just intent, but devious intent. Now, we still don’t have Mr. Cosby saying “I gave Quaaludes to unknowing young women to have sex with them.” We do, however, have the evidence, in his own words telling us his intended use of the Quaaludes.

This discovery of the truth must be wonderful news to all those victims who took the long step to accuse an icon of sexual assault. I look for more victims to surface now that the stigma of false accusation is lifted. Cosby’s cover-up strategy didn’t work.

Trained Observer Test #2 - What's Missing?


What's missing in the US Response to the allegation the US Intelligence monitored German Chancellor Merkel's mobile phone:


US Response from Jay Carney (Presidential Press Secretary) 10/23/2013:


“Obama and Merkel spoke by phone earlier Wednesday and ‘the president assured the chancellor that the United States is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of the chancellor,’ White House press secretary Jay Carney said.”

Answer:  The "Past" ("did not monitor") is missing! The best and the brightest team of experts working for the President and Press Secretary Carney crafted this response after long discussions. Their response refers only to the "Present" and "Future," with no reference to the "Past." They didn't forget to address the "Past." This omission is an admission the US Government monitored Chancellor Merkel's mobile phone.


The Right Question


Let’s say your child finally arrives home 2 hours after curfew and you want to know where he/she was. What do you ask?

Where were you? = no
Where have you been? = no
What caused you to be 2 hours late? = better

 "Working backwards from now, tell me with whom and where you were." = best

Learn how to ask the right question, at the right time, in the right way. Get Getting the Truth

Carve and sculpt your questions. "Sculpt" is a good word. It helps describe the process you need to follow to construct the perfect question. Questions have to be simple, compact, precise and contain only mutually-understood words to allow you to get the truth. Anything else is a waste of time and can even be destructive. Even then, you must have a strategy.  The question needs to be asked at the right time and in the right way. Read my book to find out the intricacies of constructing perfect questions.
