Misremembering. It can happen to anyone, like that time I made a Korean woman strangle a chicken, but it turned out it was a baby. Pobody’s nerfect. NBC Nightly News Anchor Brian Williams is hoping that’s the attitude the public takes toward his own “bungled” recollection of his chopper being forced to land after it was hit by an RPG (Rocket-propelled grenade) during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Williams summarized the tale last week, in a Nightly News segment marking the 12th anniversary of the event, and his reunion with a soldier who had protected Williams and his crew while they were in Iraq:

    A particularly unctuous Stolen Valor liar is exposed in the new book, THE SETUP: A TRUE STORY OF DIRTY COPS, SOCCER MOMS, AND REALITY TV. This liar has been telling people he has been awarded multiple Purple Hearts for his heroism in the Gulf War, in which he did not serve. He also has been claiming to be a first responder at 9-11. Please check it out:

    Misremembering…How do you explain the Letterman interview? He spent 5 minutes going into some very explicit detail about RPG and AK fire, altitude, speed, hard landing, they were carrying bridge parts for the 3rd Bat, most forward Americans in country, surrounded by enemy forces…it was all lies…for more than 5 minutes…all lies.
