Synod Play By Play II.2
As expected Cdl. Kasper is trying to maneuver out from under the rock he dropped on his head (see Rorate or CMR).
This has always been Cardinal Kasper's Achilles heel. He likes to talk about his plans and manipulate people into agreeing with his 'genius'. However, when people don't agree with his viewpoint, the veneer wears off in the thin spots.
In this manner he is predictable.
Ask the right questions and especially if he gets flustered, he'll give up some useful information.
However, in any dealing with Cardinal Kasper or prelates of similar ilk, ensure that your SMB (save my butt) equipment is firmly in place. In the case of Mr. Pentin, he had his recording, a recording that is now worth its weight in gold.
