So when did Martin Winterkorn, the former CEO of Volkswagen, first learn about the whole diesel-emissions cheat? He can’t remember, just that it was no earlier than what VW has already admitted to.
I guess you could say his memory is hazy? (I’ll see myself out). From Reuters:
“Upon being asked whether he thought the diesel cheating could still be blamed on just a few engineers, Winterkorn acknowledged that more than a handful of staffers knew but said he did not know how many people were involved.” “Asked why he himself had no earlier knowledge, Winterkorn said: “Software applications represent a very specific area of work in engine development.”
Is that very specific area usually filled with cheaters?
