Best Correction Ever

“In a May 25, 2006 article describing Georgetown University faculty opposition to a teaching appointment for Douglas J. Feith, former Bush Administration undersecretary of defense for policy planning and analysis, the Times noted that Army Gen. Tommy R. Franks, top commander of the Iraq invasion, once referred to Mr. Feith as ‘the stupidest guy on the face of the earth.’

“However, according to Gen. Franks' autobiography, American Soldier, what he actually called Mr. Feith was ‘the fucking stupidest guy on the face of the earth.’ The Times regrets the error.”
