I've worked with criminals and find that after denial doesn't work, then comes minimization, not understanding what was wrong with one's actions and ignorance towards any negative result from one's actions. The Rabbi appears to be speaking from the handbook of criminality. He should consider taking full responsibility and taking this more seriously. Would the last Chabad Rebbe make comments under another name and praise himself under another name? Please.
