After NBC anchor Brian Williams recanted his longstanding claim that he was onboard a helicopter that was forced down by RPG and smalls arms fire during the Iraq War in 2003, best-selling author Brad Thor went on a relentless tirade against the embattled newsman.
Williams has repeatedly claimed that after his helicopter was forced down, he and his NBC News team were "rescued, surrounded and kept alive by an armor mechanized platoon from the U.S. Army 3rd Infantry." He was forced to recant his story and apologize after soldiers who were actually there called him out online.
Thor argued Williams has no credibility left, called for his firing and even called him a “total a**hole.”
