Attorney General Loretta Lynch made the rounds on the talk show circuit Sunday and she must have forgotten what she said from one show to the next.

On NBC’s “Meet The Press” Lynch said the administration would release a “partial transcript”of Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen’s phone calls with hostage negotiators.

“What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this individual’s pledges of allegience to terrorist groups and further his propaganda,” she said.

But on CNN’s “State of The Union” she said the reason they were releasing the transcripts was “so people can understand, as we do, possibly what motivated this killer.”

That’s going to be hard to do if they scrub references to the Islamic State, which is what he said was his motivation.

Unless the Obama administration wants to paint his motivation as lack of employment opportunities and, of course, the Crusades.
