Soldiers who flew with NBC anchor Brian Williams in Iraq in 2003 - when he falsely claimed he was on a helicopter when it was hit by enemy fire - have slammed his lies.
Williams was forced to apologize on air and on Facebook on Wednesday after the group of soldiers accused him of lying about the crash in a segment on the Nightly News on Friday.
While a helicopter was forced to land after being hit that day, it was not carrying Williams. He was in a separate aircraft more than half an hour behind that landed without incident.
'He was actually on my aircraft and we came in behind [the other helicopter] about 30-45 minutes later,' Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Miller, the flight engineer on the helicopter that carried the journalists, wrote on Facebook after NBC shared a link to Williams' story.
