Hager and Stephenson on Monday said:
In a statement sent to media on Sunday night, the authors say it’s “actually impossible that the story is wrong”.
On Wednesday media reported:
English’s comments come on the back of the two authors, earlier on Wednesday, conceding the attacks were at a different location from the position given in their book.
How can this be? They said it was actually impossible for them to be wrong. Not implausible. Not unlikely. Not improbable. But actually impossible.
Now of course because they were wrong on the location doesn’t mean they are wrong on everything. But they should show some humility after the arrogance of their statement on Monday.
