Another new development and nail in the coffin for those inflaming Andreas Lubitz’s motives with mystical qualities.

His life’s calling was in danger.

He wanted to be a pilot since he was 14.

The story becomes more droll as it evolves.

No Islam, no depression, no sexual rage. Just a psychopathic Joker who wanted to watch the world (or all his passengers) burn.

Sometimes evil is not as scintillating as all the pet terms and concepts we adorn our bullshit with.

Andreas Lubitz, who was flying the Germanwings jetliner that slammed into a mountain in the French Alps on Tuesday, sought treatment for vision problems that may have jeopardized his ability to continue working as a pilot, two officials with knowledge of the investigation said Saturday.

The revelation of the possible trouble with his eyes added a new element to the emerging portrait of the 27-year-old German pilot, who the authorities say was also being treated for psychological issues and had hidden aspects of his medical condition from his employer.

It is not clear how severe his eye problems were or how they might have been related to his psychological condition. One person with knowledge of the investigation said the authorities had not ruled out the possibility that the vision problem could have been psychosomatic.
