Fact-Checking The Fact Checker

A correction in Sunday’s WaPo:

    The Fact Checker column in the Sept. 27 A-section should have noted that a statement by Adm. Michael Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to Fox News that the removal of all combat troops from Iraq by 2010 “could be very dangerous” was not referring specifically to Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama’s plan to withdraw all U.S. combat forces in that time frame.

Speaking of corrections, one has to assume that former newspaper publisher Nancy Maynard would not approve of how the New York Times botched her obituary.
