Brian Williams Has Been Lying About Supposedly Being Shot Down in a Helicopter In Iraq Since 2003; Now Says He "Misremebered" Some Details and Is "Sorry"


I don't know if I buy the claim, generally, that a large percentage of people at the top of corporate chains of commands are actually psychopaths, but I am willing to believe that as regards our corporate media.

This report is by Travis J. Tritten. I'm going to excerpt more than I usually would, because 1, this is a big story, and 2, because I think Stars and Stripes is actually funded and published by the government so I sort of paid for this article.

But I wanted to give the writer credit, and do give them a click.

BC 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.

The admission came after crew members on the 159th Aviation Regiment’s Chinook that was hit by two rockets and small arms fire told Stars and Stripes that the NBC anchor was nowhere near that aircraft or two other Chinooks flying in the formation that took fire. Williams arrived in the area about an hour later on another helicopter after the other three had made an emergency landing, the crew members said.

"I would not have chosen to make this mistake," Williams said. "I don't know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another."

Let me help you out here, Brian. You conflated one aircraft -- one you were in -- with another aircraft -- one you were not in -- not due to a "mistake" but due to an age-old reportorial practice called lying to advance an agenda.

The agenda here was dressing up a soft, delicate little boy into a the sort of iron-stubbled man who looks like he belongs on a battlefield.

So you lied. You claimed you were on one of the helicopters that took fire; no human being could ever confuse "Me" or "Not Me."

Steven Wright makes just that joke -- "The other day I was -- wait, no, that was someone else."

See, Brian, it's funny because we know that confusion about "Me" versus "Not Me" is not possible, except in the insane.

So you lied, and over the years you've lied and lied again.

Trust us, they lied.


Williams made the claim while presenting NBC coverage of the tribute to the retired command sergeant major at the Rangers game, and the fans giving the soldier a standing ovation.

"The story actually started with a terrible moment a dozen years back during the invasion of Iraq when the helicopter we were traveling in was forced down after being hit by an RPG," Williams said on the broadcast. "Our traveling NBC News team was rescued, surrounded and kept alive by an armor mechanized platoon from the U.S. Army 3rd Infantry."

Williams and his camera crew were actually aboard a Chinook in a formation that was about an hour behind the three helicopters that came under fire, according to crew member interviews.

...

"No, we never came under direct enemy fire to the aircraft," [a crew member] said Wednesday.


...

Miller, Reynolds and Mike O’Keeffe, who was a door gunner on the damaged Chinook, said they all recall NBC reporting that Williams was aboard the aircraft that was attacked, despite it being false. The NBC online archive shows the network broadcast a news story on March 26, 2003, with the headline "Target Iraq: Helicopter NBC’s Brian Williams Was Riding In Comes Under Fire."

I was going to write earlier: "You just know he's only admitting this because he's been confronted with proof that he's been lying."

Well, here that part is:

Williams disputed Wednesday claims the initial reports were inaccurate, saying he originally reported he was in another helicopter but later confused the events. In a 2008 NBC blog post with his byline, he wrote that the "Chinook helicopter flying in front of ours (from the 101st Airborne) took an RPG to the rear rotor.

O’Keeffe said the incident has bothered him since he and others first saw the original report after returning to Kuwait.

"Over the years it faded," he said, "and then to see it last week it was -- I can't believe he is still telling this false narrative."

I can believe it.

What else does he do but offer false narratives every single night?

"Trust Us, They Lied:" Still lying:


More: Williams to lie about this lie some more in a few minutes on NBCNightlyNews.

41 They really should fire him, think about that for a minute, the lead anchor is basically a huge liar. You don't mix up details about getting shot down, you just lied your ass off.

You know, they shit canned Dan Rather, maybe it's not the stuff of fantasy to think Brian Williams will also.

If anything, what Brian Williams did is worse, Dan Rather just put out a flimsy story that he really wanted to get out there, Brian Williams just straight up lied and WAS the source.

Tom Harkin was never in combat but Joni Ernst has his seat now and no one cares about that self serving white lie anymore if they ever did. That's just off the top of my head.

I think it has something to do with their pacifistic tendencies. They know that they're only against war when it serves their own political careers. They're seemingly at peace with telling lies that enhance their resumes. But subconsciously it bothers them that at certain times it would have simply been the right thing to support war.

Also, the self righteous indignation they can project at anyone who calls them out for what they are-cowards and frauds. Because they've been under fire. They've been in the shit. And it changed them, deeply. So deeply that they have to vehemently speak out against WAR! Oh, the humanity!

201 Lied about his college degree? It's the American way. The president of Abbvie pharmaceuticals lied about having a B.S. and M.S. in biochemistry, along with having had extensive research experience. The lie was exposed after he had been with Abbott Labs for over 30 years, worked his way up to being an executive on the BOD of Abbott, and retired. After the public revelation, Abbott Labs rehired him to be CEO and COB of Abbvie. I sold every share I owned of both stocks and am still wondering where the class-action lawsuits are.

Reality:

Williams and his camera crew were actually aboard a Chinook in a formation that was about an hour behind the three helicopters that came under fire, according to crew member interviews.

As Reported at the time:

The first chopper was hit and forced to land. Then the one carrying Williams and Dowling landed. The incident occurred near a U.S. tank division, which quickly surrounded the helicopters and held off Iraqi forces throughout the night. Then sandstorms hit, keeping Williams Co. grounded for days.

"Life in this patch of Iraqi desert without a name became all about survival inside a hollow, grounded Chinook helicopter as a colossal sandstorm arrived like an orange wall in the sky," Williams said last night on NBC's "Nightly News."Richard Huff
New York Daily News [New York, N.Y] 27 Mar 2003

MSNBC's Brian Williams was forced to land after the helicopter next to his was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade. Williams told viewers he has been asked, " 'As a journalist, how are you going to remain impartial covering this, now that you have spent two nights being protected by an armored platoon of the U.S. Army?' And the answer is, I will try, but I can report about what I have seen."

The pilots had chosen deliberately to land because it was starting to snow and visibility was diminishing.

Those aboard the helicopter experienced nothing other than a few hours of boredom.

306 Oh, well. NBC/MSNBC seems to have a problem with misremembering stuff, or altering 911 calls to cover their misremembering, or selectively reporting stuff to hide their misremembering or not reporting things that are important for people to know to cover up their misremembering. Maybe that's what the MS in MSNBC stands for. Misremembering Stuff.

it appears to be reversed. They in fact automatically lie and only fall back to truth when forced to do so. Any single thing that comes across their desk will be massaged altered or confabulated into a complete lie. automatically.anything. Everything.

Edwards apparently likes to use a dead family member to engender sympathy as well. Supposedly after Kerry picked him for the Veep slot in 2004, Edwards told Kerry a personal story about an incident shortly after the death of his child, and explained that he'd never before told the story to anyone. Problem was, Kerry had heard that exact same story several years prior.

And the answer is, I will try, but I can report about what I have seen."

389 My younger brother was an embedded journalist for Bloomberg Business Week during the 2003 Iraq war. He accompanied NBC reporter David Bloom's body on a helicopter after Bloom keeled over. What my brother saw was absolute hell but he mostly still won't talk about it to this day. He most certainly has PTSD

For Williams to pump himself up with false experiences is disgusting.. I sent this link to my brother and am waiting to hear his response. Those who truly experienced horror are loathe to talk about it.

Shame on Williams for cheapening the experience of other more honest Iraq war reporters.

421 I found this quote from Dennehy at IMDB.

"I lied about serving in Vietnam and I'm sorry. I did not mean to take away from the actions and the sacrifices of the ones who did really serve there...I did steal valor. That was very wrong of me. There is no real excuse for that. I was a peace-time Marine, and I got out in 1963 without ever serving in Vietnam... I started the story that I had been in 'Nam, and I got stuck with it. Then I didn't know how to set the record straight."

445 Brian Williams should be fired, but he won't. He'll probably be promoted.

We'll get books and movies about how he was telling a "fake but accurate" story and the mean Tea Party got to him because he "accurately" reported that the Tea Party shot up the Batman theatre in Colorado. We'll hear for years about how "terrible" it was that he was so criticized.

I cannot imagine how one could confuse "in a vehicle that was shot down" with "in a vehicle that was not shot down."

Anyone who watches NBC, at all, for any reason, should be ashamed.

446 It always leads me back to the question: What else is he lying about? Primetime news achors pride themselves on being trustworthy. Like one should be trusted more to read the teleprompter correctly.
