    from all over the world.

    She was inarticulate.  There's no doubt about that.

    However, she came across as a basically honest person, and her later interviews have shown her to be of a generous and forgiving nature.

    •  I think Rachel did the best that she was able to (3+ / 0-)

      while on the witness stand.  Hearing after the trial that West deposed her for over 9 hours easily explains her trepidation and inability to speak as easily and naturally as she did on Piers Morgan's show.

      West was trying his best to demean her, treating her as if she was unable to understand the most basic of questions.  After deposing her for 9 hours, he had the fucking gall to ask her if she had difficulty understanding English!  He did this with the intent to upset her, there's not a doubt in my mind about his actions.  

      Rachel's testimony came across as authentic IMO.  For a defense team that kept repeating that if anyone tells the same story over and over again without any changes, then they're lying, thus proving, in their minds and hopefully the jurors, GZ must be telling the truth.  If Rachel wasn't giving the exact same story, however, she's lying or has been coached.  If I was on the jury, I would have had a difficult time with West's attitude whether I believed GZ or not.  What a rude SOB!
