Star & Stripes has the scoop:
NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams admitted Wednesday he was not aboard a helicopter hit and forced down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a false claim that has been repeated by the network for years.
Williams repeated the claim Friday during NBC’s coverage of a public tribute at a New York Rangers hockey game for a retired soldier that had provided ground security for the grounded helicopters, a game to which Williams accompanied him. In an interview with Stars and Stripes, he said he had misremembered the events and was sorry.
We call that the “Hillary Clinton” excuse. Hillary, as you may remember, lied about sniper fire in Bosnia.
Leftists are narcissists. Narcissists do not have objective truth. The truth is always defined by their needs, whether emotional, professional, economic, or anything else. The Leftist’s reality is always bounded by the needs of the moment and Williams is a Leftist. Williams, a weedy little Leftist talking head, felt emasculated being around real warriors in Iraq (and being around some real reporters who actually went to the dangerous places). He needed to pump himself up, just as Hillary did.
UPDATE: Michelle Malkin has found the best Brian Williams quotation ever. Really. Ever.
