Lincoln's public posturing from 1862 tells us absolutely nothing about
what he was doing in 1865.

And the simple fact is that while Lincoln was taking this position
publicly in August 1862, we know that he had already gone to the
cabinet weeks earlier and laid out the plans for emancipation.

If there's a new point, let's be clear what it is.
