Flashback: Franklin Foer Claimed He "Confirmed The Woman"

I kept asking -- what the hell does "confirmed the woman" mean?

Now we know.

This was claimed last week.

FOR A NEARLY A WEEK FRANKLIN FOER KNEW A KEY CLAIM IN HIS NEW STEPHEN GLASS' WAR JOURNAL WAS FALSE BUT DID NOT REPORT IT WHEN QUESTIONED, INSTEAD LYING TO EVERYONE THAT TNR HAD "CONFIRMED THE WOMAN."

"Confirmed the woman."

"Confirmed the woman."

"Confirmed the woman."

This for a week.

Today--

Oh, I'm sorry, a small "error" our "reporter" made, a tiny "mistake." This did not happen in Iraq as he claimed, and thus is not a portrait of the deadening effects of war. Instead, it happened in a staging area in Kuwait, and hence demonstrates nothing about war but an awful lot about the viciously cruel character of our new star "reporter."

Did I forget to mention that?

My bad. Must have slipped my mind.

I guess I made an "error" or a "mistake" when I claimed we "confirmed the woman." I guess I meant I had specifically proven the woman false.

You understand that error, right?

Come on, guys. Kuwait/Iraq, Warzone/Sitting around in a rear-eschelon staging area, "confirmed"/disproven.

Easy mistakes to make. All very easily confused for one another, right?

Right?
