Another Tale: Doubt Cast Over Brian Williams Claim of Rockets Flying Near Helicopter During Israel-Hezbollah War
Note that when relating the helicopter story about Iraq, Williams hasn’t yet placed himself in the helicopter shot down by the RPG. He merely claims that he “looked down the tube of an RPG that had been fired at us and it hit the chopper in front of ours.”
He’s claiming a close call — that the RPG was meant for his chopper but hit the one in front of him. It wouldn’t be long, though, before he was claiming it was his chopper that was hit and forced to land.
