Tonight Brian Williams offered an apology of a sorts on NBC News for his fake account of being in helicopter attack in Iraq back in 2003. Despite years and years of talking up the tale, it turns out that Williams was never on a chopper than came under RPG fire 12 years ago ago. Today, on-air and online, the anchor said he “made a mistake in recalling the incidents.” Williams calls it a “bungled attempt” now but he’s been telling the story since at least 2007. In the video above, watch him less than 2 years ago tell CBS’s David Letterman his war story – does Williams recall that? The chopper part starts around 2:45 mark.
