Aaronovitch admits he was wrong! Not really. He's just slightly rewritten an article from 11/4/2004. In today's Observer
he says that he attracted criticism over "talking about the restraint [he] had witnessed on the part of US troops in Baghdad. ". What he actually said was "the Americans....in many ways, have acted in Iraq with extraordinary restraint". [note: not just Baghdad - Iraq. ] Not quite the same as US troops watching their manners in front of the world's press in Baghdad.
This is an Obama appointee
