Embattled NBC anchor Brian Williams appears to have lied about seeing the entire Iraq war plans, Gotnews.com has learned.
In a Facebook message on his wall, Williams exaggerated his reporting in the run up to the Iraq war.
Williams wrote to a fan “we routinely are aware of details that we do not report. When I was covering the invasion in Iraq, for example, I had the entire war plan in front of me on the wall. I knew where each unit was heading and when. We would never dream of disclosing those details, because American lives were at stake…ditto much of what we learn in the national security realm. The tricky part comes when there is wrongdoing under that very same banner. We are not here to assist our government — quote the contrary — nor are we here to assist in its overthrow. At the end of the day, we are humans who spend the day putting together a national newscast, trying to make the right choices, trying to balance it all.”
