He’s been caught in a bold-faced lie, and while that’s disturbing enough, his attempts to explain it away have been even more disturbing. The fellow of focus is NBC’s Brian Williams (#15 FCIL). Yes, THE Brian Williams, the prim and polished anchorman who has built his reputation on professionalism and ‘integrity’ for more than a decade. After being challenged recently for his latest fabrication, he admitted yesterday that he was not aboard a helicopter hit and forced down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Instead, he “was nowhere near that aircraft … Williams arrived in the area about an hour later on another helicopter after the other three had made an emergency landing.”
Wow, that’s quite the contrasting story. So, what did Brian have to say?
I would not have chosen to make this mistake. I don’t know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another.
Say what again? Did he take a page from Bill Clinton’s playbook? Remember, this is a story Williams has repeated several times on the air since the incident supposedly happened. This would mean his mind has been “conflating” one aircraft with another for some twelve years now. As recently as two years ago he even went so far as to tell actor Alec Baldwin (#13 FCIR) that he was afraid he was going to die!
Williams has told this trumped-up story so many times it’s virtually impossible to account for them all. As his deception has recently come to light, more and more people are recounting hearing him tell it once before. How about with David Letterman #13 FCIR) just within the last 2 years? In this case, Williams emulated the hundreds of liars heai??i??s either interviewed or castigated from his long-held news anchor chair. They’d be proud of him. (See Letterman video below, starting around 3 minutes in.)
So how about for those who were actually on the attacked helicopter?
It was something personal for us that was kind of life-changing for me. I 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. Reynolds went on to say that Williams later approached the aircraft and took photos of the damage. It’s a good thing Instagram hadn’t been invented yet.
Unfortunately, another #15 FCIL has been caught in a Dan Rather (remember his attempt to take down George W?), or Bill Belichick moment. Oh, and by the way, can you recall the last #15 who lied about coming under enemy fire, just finishing a flight? Does Bosnia give you a clue? If you recall Hillary Clinton’s falsehood, you guessed right. Whereas she claimed they got off the plane and had to duck and run for cover from sniper fire, lo and behold, a video of the account later showed what really happened, where she slowly exited the plane and was waving, and then shook hands with a little school girl.
Yes, with a little practice, the Left brain dominant individual can lie just as smoothly as the Right brain dominant individual. Coupled with #15 competence, the lie can be even more believable. Yet, lest we begin to seem too negative of the #15 FCIL design, ‘tune in’ for our next article where we will highlight a newly-Brain Typed, respectable Hollywood actor who shares this wiring. Don’t miss it!
