Brian Williams; just a symptom
Brian Williams was under heavy fire last night on the “Twittersphere”, for his helicopter flight that was not.
Ironically, I had just written a piece on liars the day before, so it was good marketing for me, but mainly it just makes me sad. Brian is just a symptom of our sick society that has tried to stay afloat in a sea of moral relativism. It “don’t” work; just look at history.
It’s no secret that the mainstream media has a liberal spin, we just didn’t know it took the proportions of the propellor of a Chinook Helicopter.
As the wife and daughter of veterans, I am particularly outraged that some loafer-wearing, sissy boy would convey on himself any modicum of valor. Quite frankly, it makes me want to puke.
When Bill Clinton looked into the camera and lied to the American People, it had far greater consequences, and reverberations than were realized at the time. Have we gotten the “memo” as a nation that maybe character matters and that truth is to be our touchstone? You’re a liar Brian, not one who “mis-remembered”.
The whistleblowers were the actual crew of the targeted copter. They had first noted Williams’ false report in 2003 but kept quiet. But after 12 years of hearing Williams take credit for their hardship, they finally had enough.
“It was something personal for us that was kind of life-changing for me. I’ve know how lucky I was to survive it,” said Lance Reynolds, who was the flight engineer. “It felt like a personal experience that someone else wanted to participate in and didn’t deserve to participate in.”
O’Keeffe said the incident has bothered him since he and others first saw the original report after returning to Kuwait.
“Over the years it faded,” he said, “and then to see it last week it was — I can’t believe he is still telling this false narrative.”
