ALBANY, Ga. (AP) - In a Sept. 11 story about military retirees' reaction to new documents concerning President Bush's National Guard service, The Associated Press incorrectly identified Ahmad Majied of Albany as a former Navy SEAL. Majied assisted SEAL teams while he was in the Navy, but never was trained as a SEAL. "I should have been more specific," he said Friday.

Majied assisted SEAL teams while he was in the Navy

Probably packed their parachutes. Polished their shoes.

FreeRepublic once again becomes the fact-checker for the MSM. Time they started paying for the services.

Another story corrected?

So Freepers nailed AP on the "Boo's". They nailed Rather/CBS on forged documents. And they nailed AP again on the SEAL claims.

Yes they did defend the story. The writer was pretty snippy about it as I recall. Another one of those MSM snobs.

Score another win for the pjamahadeen!
