Tucson Gunman Says He’s A Failure Because Giffords Survived

A prison psychologist’s report reveals that Jared Loughner claimed, “I’m not an assassin,” even though he saw himself as a failure because Congresswoman Giffords survived.

Psychologist Christina Pietz, who evaluated Loughner at a federal prison hospital in Missouri, said in the report that Loughner had repeatedly made comments suggesting he thought Giffords died when he shot her in the head.

At one time, he suggested he understood that Giffords was alive, according to Pietz, who wrote that she pressed him on that point, and he admitted to feeling disappointed in her survival because it meant he “failed.”
