A September 2003 NBC News book narrated by Tom Brokaw claimed Brian Williams was on “receiving end of an ambush.”
The story was relayed in a book produced by NBC Enterprises entitled Operation Iraqi Freedom: The Inside Story.
“Brian Williams, his producer Justin Balding, and NBC News consultant General Wayne Downing, retired, ended up on the receiving end of an ambush directed at the 3rd Infantry Division,” wrote the author.
The book described how they were “forced to make a desert landing after being attacked by Iraqi Fedayeen.”
Several of the photographs confirm that Williams and the NBC crew were continuing the lie.
Chief Warrant Officer Rich Krell is pictured to Williams right in the second photo.
Thanks to Ron Brynaert for alerting us to this one.
