Corrections must be made from time to time. Better to be upfront about an error than to bury it near the want-ads like the New York Times and Washington Post often do.
The key thing to remember: the official story is nonsense on stilts. Don’t believe it. It’s far too fishy of a story to be believed, given the facts as we know them. Keep paying attention to the story. I’m sure this isn’t the last we’ll hear about it.
