‘I Made a Mistake’: Brian Williams Admits He Lied About Being Shot Down in Iraq

In a broadcast last week, NBC’s Brian Williams backtracked on an event that happened 12 years ago. Williams said that while reporting in Iraq, the helicopter that contained him and his crew was shot down by RPG fire–something a normal person would not dramatize. Williams recanted his story, saying that he was in a helicopter following another helicopter that was hit by RPG fire. Both aircrafts landed after the firestorm and spent two “harrowing” nights in a sandstorm. “This was a bungled attempt by me to thank one special veteran, and by extension our brave military men and women, veterans everywhere, those who have served while I did not,” Williams said Wednesday. “I hope they know they have my greatest respect and also now my apology.”
