Brian Williams Still Has a Lot of Questions to Answer About His Iraq Helicopter Story

By Ben Mathis-Lilley

Update, 11:00 p.m.: Brian Williams apologized on-air tonight for claiming that he was in a helicopter hit by an RPG in Iraq, but the version of events he gives in his apology is vague in a way that avoids addressing the main accusation of the soldiers quoted in Stars and Stripes questioning his accounts of events. Those soldiers, in Stars and Stripes' telling, say that not only was Williams not in a helicopter that was hit by an RPG, but that he was nowhere near the helicopters that were actually fired upon.

Said Williams tonight: "I made a mistake in recalling the events of 12 years ago. … I want to apologize. I said I was traveling in an aircraft that was hit by RPG fire. I was instead in a following aircraft. We all landed after the ground fire incident." Williams' apology is reminiscent of his original reporting on the incident in 2003, which the Washington Post's Erik Wemple has located and posted. Stars and Stripes wrote today that Williams—post-apology—still believes that this initial account is accurate.

In the initial account (given on both the Nightly News and a Dateline episode on March 26, 2003), Williams clearly states that he was part of a group of helicopters that was fired upon while performing a mission:

We are one of four Chinook helicopters flying north this morning, third in line. As we head toward the drop point the Iraqi landscape looks quiet. We can see a convoy of American troop carriers and supply vehicles heading north.
This 2003 account, like Williams' apology, implies the helicopters landed together after ground fire:

All four choppers dropped their load and landed immediately.

However, Stars and Stripes' piece says unequivocally that Williams' helicopter was not part of the group that was fired upon—not third in line, and not part of the line at all.

... Crew members on the 159th Aviation Regiment’s Chinook that was hit by two rockets and small arms fire told Stars and Stripes that the NBC anchor was nowhere near that aircraft or two other Chinooks flying in the formation that took fire. Williams arrived in the area about an hour later on another helicopter after the other three had made an emergency landing, the crew members said.

The soldiers quoted by Stars and Stripes say that they recall being upset at the time by the inaccuracies in this 2003 version of events.

It's also worth noting that, in his 2003 account, Williams says he knew about the ground fire because of "radio traffic" and from information he learned "on the ground." However, in 2007 and 2008 blog posts on the incident, Williams speaks as if he saw the fire himself:

Wayne and I were riding along as part of an Army mission to deliver bridge components to the Euphrates River, so that the invading forces of the 3rd Infantry could cross the river on their way to Bagdhad. We came under fire by what appeared to be Iraqi farmers with RPG's and AK-47's. The Chinook helicopter flying in front of ours (from the 101st Airborne) took an RPG to the rear rotor, as all four of our low-flying Chinooks took fire.

In his apology statement today, Williams said that re-reading his 2008 post helped him remember what had actually happened. But his 2007-2008 versions of events don't seem to be in line with Stars and Stripes' account or his own disputed 2003 account.

I've reached out to an NBC Nightly News representative about the continuing inconsistensies and will post any response they make.

Original post, 6:45 p.m.: NBC News anchor Brian Williams has recanted a claim, made on air on Jan. 30, that he was aboard a helicopter in Iraq that was hit by rocket-propelled grenade fire—but his recantation itself is still at odds with the version of events given by soldiers.

In the course of introducing a Jan. 30 segment about a veteran he'd met in Iraq, Williams said that the helicopter he was traveling in during a 2003 trip to Iraq "was forced down after being hit by an RPG." In a new statement, Williams admitted that he was not on the helicopter that was hit, writing that he did not mean to dissemble and believes he confused his memory of the situation because he'd watched footage (taken by the NBC crew he was with) of the damaged helicopter multiple times.

However, Williams says he was reminded of the true version of events by reading a 2008 blog post he'd written which helped him remember that he was a passenger in "the Chinook behind the bird that took the RPG." In that post, Williams says that his helicopter and the one that was hit were flying together and implies that they were all forced down at once, writing that he himself saw "what appeared to be Iraqi farmers with RPG's and AK-47's."

According to the soldiers interviewed by Stars and Stripes, though, Williams' Chinook was nowhere near the fire and actually landed next to the fired-upon helicopters because of a sandstorm.

Williams and his camera crew were actually aboard a Chinook in a formation that was about an hour behind the three helicopters that came under fire, according to crew member interviews.

That Chinook took no fire and landed later beside the damaged helicopter due to an impending sandstorm from the Iraqi desert, according to Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Miller, who was the flight engineer on the aircraft that carried the journalists.

Williams made similar claims in a 2007 post, writing that the four helicopters took fire and landed together.

NBC also broadcast a segment on March 26, 2003 titled “Target Iraq: Helicopter NBC’s Brian Williams Was Riding In Comes Under Fire."

No footage of that segment has yet surfaced, but three soldiers interviewed by Stars and Stripes say they watched it and recall that it involved the false claim that Williams' helicopter had come under fire.

Battle of Najaf (2003)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Battle of Najaf was a major battle in the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The first stage of the battle was fought when the US 3rd Infantry Division fought to surround the town. The second stage was fought when soldiers from the U.S. 101st Airborne Division fought to clear and secure the city.

Apache attack on March 24

On March 24, 32 AH-64D Longbow Apache attack helicopters of the 11th Aviation Regiment were tasked with carrying out a long range penetration mission against armored forces belonging to the Iraqi Republican Guard's Medina Division which was positioned outside Najaf. Rather than provide close air support near the front lines, the helicopters were going to be used in a manner similar to strike aircraft.

It is believed that Iraqi observers had the 11th AvR's forward assembly areas under observation. Regardless, when the helicopter forces of 1-227 AVN and 6-6 CAV approached Najaf that night, the city's power grid was shut down for several seconds as a signal that the helicopters were approaching.

Antiaircraft Fire Described as 'Hornet's Nest'


Published: March 24, 2003

KUWAIT, March 24 - Having swept more than 300 miles over desert and mud in southern Iraq, an American army gathered itself south of Baghdad today, flinging artillery fire and airborne helicopter forces against the Medina Division of Iraq's Republican Guard, the outer ring of Saddam Hussein's final defense.

But withering antiaircraft fire described as a ``hornet's nest'' drove back an airborne force of more than 30 Apache helicopters, downing one in a farmer's field.

Iraqi television showed images of what it said were the two pilots. The Pentagon identified the missing crewmen as Chief Warrant Officer Ronald D. Young Jr., 26, of Georgia, and Chief Warrant Officer David S. Williams, 30, of Florida.

Nearly all the gunships sustained damage, and military commanders said they were disappointed in their initial failure to destroy the entrenched Iraqi forces from the air.

In Nasiriya, in central Iraq, 5,000 marines battled to cement control over the city, the scene of intense fighting on Sunday that left several marines and soldiers dead, and others wounded, captured or missing. Control of the Euphrates River crossroads and its bridges is vital to supporting and provisioning the army that raced over the river toward Baghdad this weekend.

``This will plainly be a crucial moment,'' Prime Minister Tony Blair of Britain said of the battle that began Sunday night and carried into today.

Elsewhere, both Secretary General Kofi Annan of the United Nations and President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia expressed concern over a looming civilian crisis in Basra. There were intense efforts by the American-led invasion force to secure the port at Umm Qasr and clear mines so that an aid ship could bring relief supplies ashore.

In northern Iraq, an American bomber trying to take out a bridge reportedly hit a bus at the Syrian border, killing five civilians and wounding many more.

At a briefing in Qatar, the commander of the coalition forces, Gen. Tommy R. Franks of the United States Army, asserted that Sunday's casualties and setbacks were no surprise. Some analysts have expressed concern that the Army is strung out with inadequate protection for supply lines.

General Franks, speaking at the Central Command base in Qatar, said that coalition forces had intentionally bypassed enemy formations in a rapid dramatic drive toward Baghdad, though he said they had still managed to take 3,000 prisoners.

He spoke a day after American and British ground forces suffered their worst casualties so far - at least 20 American soldiers were missing or killed and 50 or more were wounded - battling determined forces on two fronts in what an American commander said were ``the sharpest engagements of the war.''

General Franks said fedayeen fighters - members of militia groups under the control of Saddam Hussein's son Uday - had been harassing American rear positions in southern Iraq.

``We know that the fedayeen has in fact put itself in a position to mill about, to create difficulties in rear areas,'' the general said, ``and I can assure you that contact with those forces is not unexpected.''

During his briefing, General Franks repeatedly emphasized that nothing he had seen so far had surprised him or was unexpected.

Asked if he and his commanders had underestimated the tenacity of Iraqi forces and their ability to communicate despite attacks on their command-and-control sites, he replied, ``There is nothing unexpected about it.''

General Franks also said he thought that Basra and Umm Qasr would be pacified ``within a very few days'' to allow the entry of humanitarian supplies. Late last week, American and British commanders said that both cities were under allied control.

The general also said that he was not surprised by the prevalence of lethal friendly fire nor that American forces had so far found no chemical or biological weapons.

American officials reported that one soldier in the Third Infantry Division was killed by a sniper today as the division consolidated its positions on a broad plateau north of Najaf.

After pushing deep into Iraq over three days, the division's units continued to clash with small pockets of Iraqi forces in and around their positions. There were few indications that the division's heavy armored brigades were prepared to move forward.

Instead, the American soldiers concentrated on establishing security over dozens of miles of scrub desert and on bringing up food, water and other supplies after a long march northward from the Kuwaiti border.

Army weapons inspectors began searching an ammunition depot seized on Sunday for evidence that Saddam Hussein's government had stored chemical weapons there. The First Brigade's second battalion seized the sprawling depot without a fight, capturing 93 prisoners, including one believed to be a general.

The depot - two-and-a-half miles by five-and-a-half miles in size - is on a Bush administration list of suspected chemical weapons sites, and it was one of the main objectives of the division's rapid advance over the escarpment north of Najaf.

Most of the American losses have occurred at Nasiriya, which is about 100 miles north of the Kuwaiti border. An Army maintenance convoy was ambushed there on Sunday, resulting in the death or capture of about a dozen soldiers, some of whose images were beamed around the world by Arab television. Fighting continued there today.

Later on Sunday, marines attacked the city, and during a fierce battle with about 500 Iraqi defenders, a rocket-propelled grenade struck a troop carrier, witnesses said, killing up to 10 troops.

Military officials said dozens more were wounded in the battle, and helicopters were seen ferrying the wounded out of the city.

Meanwhile, the main force of the allied army - the Army's Third Infantry Division and the First Marine Expeditionary Force - raced toward Baghdad, with the largest Army force passing Najaf. It paused on the way to Karbala for the night, about 100 miles south of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

In general, allied forces skirted centers of population, keeping their focus firmly on Baghdad. The central American objective of the war is the removal of Saddam Hussein's government from power and the subsequent disarmament of the country.

President Bush said he grieved with the parents of the soldiers lost in battle but he expressed confidence that the campaign would succeed.

General's Franks's deputy, Lt. Gen. John Abizaid, raised a number of alarms about the days ahead. Intelligence reports, he said, indicated that Iraqi troops were wiring explosives to bridges in Baghdad and placing other explosives ``against certain buildings in Shia neighborhoods,'' implying that the Iraqi government might be preparing to inflict civilian casualties and then blame allied bombing for the damage.

He also described scenes from today's fighting that appeared to enrage American commanders.

In one incident, Iraqi troops raised a white flag of surrender - only to attack their approaching captors with artillery fire. In another, he said, a group of civilians made motions to surrender and then opened fire when American marines came forward. Five marines were reported wounded.

Over all, the Iraqi tactics, while showing little coherent military organization, appeared to expose a potential weakness in the dash the American forces were making to Baghdad.

By skipping over cities, American forces appeared to have left their flanks and rear areas exposed to counterattacks by irregulars under the command of Republican Guard officers dispatched by Baghdad to galvanize resistance and slow the coalition advance.

Among the missing Americans were a dozen members of the Army's 507th Maintenance Company who took a wrong turn and drove into Nasiriya without an armored escort, military officials said. Their convoy was attacked by tank fire.

Iraqi television reports said a number had been taken prisoner, and Pentagon officials said that appeared to be true. State television broadcast interviews with five of the captives, which was rebroadcast around the world by Al Jazeera, the Arab satellite network based in Qatar.

The American prisoners appeared frightened. Some bore wounds. An interviewer asked them to state their names and their units. Other video showed the bodies of several soldiers as a smiling Iraqi rolled one body over to face the camera.

Battle of Najaf (2003)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Apache attack on March 24

Heavy antiaircraft and small arms fire targeted the helicopters. Every single helicopter on the mission was hit and one even survived a direct hit from a rocket-propelled grenade. The flight turned back towards base, with some of the helicopters on fire and others running on one engine or shot full of holes. One Apache was brought down and crash-landed in a marsh. Combat search-and-rescue aircraft were unable to reach the crash site due to the heavy antiaircraft fire. The two crew, CWO Ronald Young Jr. and CWO David Williams, attempted to evade Iraqi forces by swimming down a canal. After swimming a quarter mile, they left the canal and tried to make a break across open ground towards a treeline. However, they were spotted in the bright moonlight by armed civilians and surrendered after being fired upon. They were handed over to Iraqi forces and would eventually be rescued in mid-April near Tikrit. The Iraqi government would show the helicopter on TV and claim that the helicopter had been shot down by a farmer with a bolt-action rifle, however due to the high volume of anti-aircraft fire and the armor of the Apache it is unlike that a single rifle could bring down an Apache. The downed helicopter was later destroyed by firing two MGM-140 ATACMS surface-to-surface missiles at it from long range to prevent its equipment being used by the Iraqis.

The failed attack would cause much controversy, with some arguing that the mission showed the Apache was ineffective at long range strikes due to lack of stealth and high vulnerability to ground fire due to lack of adequate armor, and that it should be limited to close air support missions. Others argued that the failure of the March 24 mission was due to poor planning and breaches of operational security rather than any defect in the Apache itself.

Arnie (TV series)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Original network CBS

Original release September 19, 1970 – March 6, 1972

Arnie is a television sitcom that ran for two seasons (1970–72) on the CBS network. It starred Herschel Bernardi, Sue Ane Langdon, and Roger Bowen.

Bernardi played the title character, Arnie Nuvo, a longtime blue collar employee at the fictitious Continental Flange Company, who overnight was promoted to an executive position. The story lines mainly focused on this fish-out-of-water situation, and on Arnie's sometimes-problematic relationship with his well-meaning but wealthy and eccentric boss, Hamilton Majors Jr. (Bowen). Because he still held his union card, Arnie could negotiate tricky management/labor situations that no one else could. Arnie's surname was presumably a pun on nouveau riche (which his promotion effectively made him), and possibly also on Art Nouveau.

In addition to Bernardi, Bowen, and Langdon (as Arnie's wife Lilian), cast members included Del Russel and Stephanie Steele as Arnie's son and daughter, Richard and Andrea; Elaine Shore as Arnie's secretary, Felicia; and Herb Voland as sour-tempered executive Neil Ogilvie.

In its first season, despite being the lead-in to The Mary Tyler Moore Show on Saturday nights and winning an Emmy nomination as best comedy series, Arnie received only fair Nielsen ratings.

Weirdest thing. I was trying to fall asleep earlier and my mind was churning trying to recall the precise details I had posted earlier. I remembered the detail about 1884 and I remembered what I had published here about 1985 but I just could not recall what that was connected to. As best I recall now that was what I was thinking about when I finally fell asleep.

So now, during the first half hour of 8 PM this evening of 29 June 2016 I started thinking about some recent posts I made enlightening you dullards about my service record and I decided to take a look again at those records for some new post to make here.

After shuffling a few pages I read closely a page I had seen before years ago but that I didn't pay much attention to.

And even then, after reading that relevant and compelling calendar date written in my documents, I still didn't connect the two events in my mind. I knew the date looked familiar but that's not a date that is locked into my declarative memory. The idea popped into my mind to see if I had many any past references to it. And there it is, just recently as 5 days ago.

Kamikaze pilot crashed into USS Zellars

Art Barnes, a fire controlman third class, was aboard the destroyer USS Zellars supporting the invasion of Okinawa when a kamikaze crashed into the port side of the ship on April 12, 1945.

The plane's 1,100-pound bomb tore through several bulkheads, then exploded on the starboard side, killing 43 crew members. Barnes suffered a gash across the bridge of his nose.

A businessman now retired in Bellingham, Barnes, 82, is the author of several books, including "In the Service of Our Country, the Ship and Her Men of the USS Zellars DD 777." He commissioned California artist Skip Rains to depict the event.

Fire in the hole: GW Fire Controlman face demanding, rewarding career path

Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Loni Lopez USS George Washington Public Affairs Oct 21, 2014

USS GEORGE WASHINGTON, At Sea (NNS) -- The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) has a unique team of specially trained Sailors, Fire Controlman (FC), who detect and engage threats with weapons systems aboard the ship around the clock.

The mission of FCs is to effectively and efficiently defend their destroyer, cruiser or carrier by utilizing the Ship's Self Defense System (SSDS).

"Most people who have asked me about my rate think we're engineers or we're firefighters, but we are so much more than firefighters," said Fire Controlman Second Class Miguel Moreno, from Homestead, Florida. "We combine key aspects of an array of different rates to operate our equipment to provide a multitude of fire control support whether it is offensive or defensive through an ever-changing plethora of missions. We're the rate that puts the war in war ship."

FCs maintain and operate many of the ship's weapons systems aboard, such as the Rolling Airframe Missile Systems, Sea Sparrow Surface Missile Systems, Guided Missile Weapon System and the Close-In Weapons System 20-mm gun mounts.

"Our weapons systems work within a network [SSDS] to detect and engage threats," said Fire Controlman Third Class Semaj Roots from Shreveport, Louisiana. "Through the entire detect-to-engage sequence we are able to make calculated decisions in how to protect the ship and the Sailors aboard."

Unlike their counterparts on cruisers and destroyers, FCs stationed aboard aircraft carriers have a different focus.

"We are primarily defensive on our carrier whereas the cruiser or destroyer is often used as an offensive weapon," said Fire Controlman Third Class Kevin Hodges, from Naperville, Illinois. "We are here to ensure that our ship stays safe in the face of any threat we face through a layered system of security."

According to Moreno, one of the most rewarding aspects of being an FC is being able to protect the ship around the clock.

"The job can be very demanding, but it can be rewarding," said Moreno. "Keeping the ship and all of our embarked shipmates safe while providing our aggressive style of support and being technical experts makes it impossible to envision myself doing any other job in the Navy."

George Washington and its embarked air wing, Carrier Air Wing 5, provide a combat-ready force that protects and defends the collective maritime interests of the U.S. and its allies and partners in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

Report from Tok'ra Intelligence: The war between Ba'al and the system lords has reached a critical stage. To escape Ba'al, Lord Ares is fleeing to a planet he once conquered, drained of Naquadah, then abandoned. Coincidentally, it's the same planet on which Brig. Gen. Jack O'Neill (at that time a colonel) granted his treacherous but likable old buddy, Col. Harry Maybourne, asylum from his enemies on Earth. O'Neill sends SG-1 to get Harry back so that the Goa'uld won't get him. When the team arrives, Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter, Dr. Daniel Jackson and Teal'c are confronted by a medieval hunting party armed with crossbows. The sentries take SG-1 to see their ruler, King Arkhan — who turns out to be none other than Harry Maybourne. Harry knows the Goa'uld are coming and knew that SG-1 would arrive. He claims to be able to "read" the future. His predictions have saved his people from meteor showers, floods and other disasters. Consequently, the people made him king — and Harry is loving every minute of it. What Harry is really reading are engravings, written in the language of the Ancients, carved on the stone walls of the remains of a temple. The writings are a record of the planet's history. They detail major events — some of which haven't happened yet.

Baseball’s Cooperstown Myth

JUNE 11, 2014 By Christopher Klein

For 75 years, baseball fans have pilgrimaged to Cooperstown, New York to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame, which is celebrating its diamond anniversary this week. The Hall of Fame was erected in the small village of Cooperstown because it was held up as the birthplace of baseball, but in reality the shrine to baseball’s gods was built on top of an elaborate creation myth.

On June 12, 1939, a constellation of baseball’s brightest stars and a crowd of 10,000 fans thronged a pastoral village of only 2,800 people nestled in the rolling hills of upstate New York. They had come to Cooperstown to celebrate the 100th birthday of the national pastime as well as the official dedication of the sport’s newly erected shrine. The fans packed into Main Street watched as the living members of the first classes of immortals inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, such as Babe Ruth and Cy Young, strode up the front steps of the new one-room museum as a band played “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” The heads of the American, National and minor leagues then severed the red, white and blue ribbons that stretched across the building’s entrance, and the Hall of Fame officially opened its doors to the public.

That afternoon, baseball’s legends from the past played an exhibition game against a team of future Hall of Famers at nearby Doubleday Field, built on the precise spot where the game was supposedly invented a century before. On that June day, Cooperstown’s baseball diamond was a true field of dreams, but it turns out that the idea of the village being the “birthplace of baseball” was the stuff of dreams as well.

Baseball arguments are as old as the sport itself, and at the turn of the 20th century a dispute about the game’s origins raged between sporting goods magnate and former baseball great Albert Goodwill Spalding, who argued that baseball was invented in the United States, and English-born Henry Chadwick, the grizzled baseball journalist who originated baseball’s modern scoring system, who claimed that the sport evolved from the English game of rounders. To settle the debate between the creationists and evolutionists, Spalding in 1905 formed a seven-man commission of ballplayers and politicians headed by former National League President Abraham G. Mills to study the origins of baseball.

Spalding hoped the commission would unearth proof that baseball was invented in America, and conveniently he soon found evidence for his preferred narrative in a letter to the editor penned by an elderly mining engineer from Colorado. In the letter published in the Akron Beacon Journal on April 4, 1905, 71-year-old Abner Graves recalled with remarkably detailed precision that as a 5-year-old boy growing up in Cooperstown he was present when 20-year-old Abner Doubleday took a walking stick to trace a diamond on a cow pasture owned by Elihu Phinney, concocted a set of rules and called his game “baseball.” In spite of his propensity for telling tall tales—he claimed to have been a Pony Express rider in 1852, although the mail service did not begin until 1860—Graves became the Mills Commission’s star witness. Although Doubleday was enrolled at West Point at the time and never mentioned any role in inventing baseball to Mills, who happened to have been his friend and arranged for his burial at Arlington National Cemetery, the Mills Commission after three years of study built its final conclusion upon Graves’s flimsy foundation by declaring: “The first scheme for playing baseball, according to the best evidence available to date, was devised by Abner Doubleday at Cooperstown, N.Y. in 1839.”

The genesis story of baseball’s invention in a Cooperstown cow pasture found numerous doubters at the time, some of whom believed Alexander Cartwright of New York’s Knickerbocker Base Ball Club developed the sport in the 1840s, but that skepticism has been bolstered by subsequent research by baseball historians. Bat-and-ball games date back to the ancient Egyptians, and references to baseball have been found in 18th-century English literature, including a Jane Austen novel. In 2004, baseball historian John Thorn discovered a 1791 bylaw in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, that prohibited playing baseball within 80 yards of the town’s new meetinghouse.

In spite of the doubters, Cooperstown doubled down on the Doubleday story during the Great Depression. In 1935, wealthy local philanthropist Stephen C. Clark purchased a darkened, torn and battered baseball from a farmer in nearby Fly Creek, New York. The hand-sewn baseball hardly looked to be worth the $5 Clark paid for it except that the farmer claimed to have discovered it in an old trunk in his attic that he said belonged to the teenaged Graves before he left upstate New York for the Gold Rush in 1848. Although he had no proof to support the claim, Clark decreed the baseball to be the one used by Doubleday when he invented the sport. Seeing baseball as the economic stimulus the town needed to survive the Great Depression, not to mention fill the rooms at his Otesaga Resort Hotel, Clark successfully pitched the idea to build a baseball museum in Cooperstown. The “Doubleday Ball” became the first artifact donated to the new baseball shrine, and when the Hall of Fame opened in 1939, it marked the ultimate fulfillment of Spalding’s misguided history.

Although the story based on a baseball of unknown provenance and the memory of an elderly man prone to tall tales was myth, Doubleday certainly was not. He fought in the Mexican-American War and was stationed at Fort Sumter in April 1861 when the first Confederate shot of the Civil War nearly struck him in the head. He aimed the cannon that fired the first Union shot of the war and led his troops into battle at Gettysburg, where a monument now stands in his honor. He died in 1893, unaware of the fame that would subsequently be bestowed upon him as the inventor of baseball. Ironically, when the Hall of Fame opened its doors on that spring day in 1939, Spalding, Cartwright and Chadwick were all honored as inductees, but 75 years later the man originally credited as the inventor of baseball has yet to be enshrined in Cooperstown.

By H.P. Lovecraft

That Crawford Tillinghast should ever have studied science and philosophy was a mistake. These things should be left to the frigid and impersonal investigator for they offer two equally tragic alternatives to the man of feeling and action; despair, if he fail in his quest, and terrors unutterable and unimaginable if he succeed. Tillinghast had once been the prey of failure, solitary and melancholy; but now I knew, with nauseating fears of my own, that he was the prey of success. I had indeed warned him ten weeks before, when he burst forth with his tale of what he felt himself about to discover.

Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Nation

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Reservation are the Bitterroot Salish, Kootenai and Pend d'Oreilles (Upper Kalispel) (pronounced: “pond-oray”) tribes.

They were incorrectly called the Flathead Indians by the first Europeans who came to the area. The Flatheads call themselves Salish, meaning “the people”. These people never practiced head flattening, but the Columbia River tribes who shaped the front of the head to create a pointed appearance spoke of their neighbors, the Salish, as "flatheads" in contrast.


The first written record of the tribes is from their meeting with the Lewis and Clark Expedition (September 4, 1805). Lewis and Clark came there and asked for horses but eventually ate the horses due to starvation. The Flatheads also appear in the records of the Roman Catholic Church at St. Louis, Missouri, to which they sent four delegations to request missionaries (or "Black Robes") to minister to the tribe. Their request was finally granted, and a number of missionaries, including Pierre-Jean De Smet, S.J., were eventually sent. The Flatheads are also located in Sula, Montana.

The tribes negotiated the Hellgate treaty with the United States in 1855. From the start, treaty negotiations were plagued by serious translation problems. A Jesuit observer, Father Adrian Hoecken, said that the translations were so poor that "not a tenth of what was said was understood by either side." But as in the meeting with Lewis and Clark, the pervasive cross-cultural miscommunication ran even deeper than problems of language and translation. Tribal people came to the meeting assuming they were going to formalize an already-recognized friendship. Non-Indians came with the goal of making official their claims to native lands and resources. Isaac Stevens, the new governor and superintendent of Indian affairs for the Washington Territory, was intent on obtaining cession of the Bitterroot Valley from the Salish. Many non-Indians were already well aware of the valley's potential value for agriculture and its relatively temperate climate in winter. Because of the resistance of Chief Victor (Many Horses), Stevens ended up inserting into the treaty complicated (and doubtless poorly translated) language that defined the Bitterroot Valley south of Lolo Creek as a "conditional reservation" for the Salish. Victor put his X mark on the document, convinced that the agreement would not require his people to leave their homeland. No other word came from the government for the next fifteen years, so the Salish assumed that they would indeed stay in their Bitterroot Valley forever.

After the 1864 gold rush in the newly established Montana Territory, pressure upon the Salish intensified from both illegal non-Indian squatters and government officials. In 1870, Victor died, and he was succeeded as chief by his son, Chief Charlot (aka Charlo, Claw of the Little Grizzly). Like his father, Charlot adhered to a policy of nonviolent resistance. He insisted on the right of his people to remain in the Bitterroot Valley. But territorial citizens and officials thought the new chief could be pressured into capitulating. In 1871, they successfully lobbied President Ulysses S. Grant to declare that the survey required by the treaty had been conducted and that it had found that the Jocko (Flathead) Reservation was better suited to the needs of the Salish. On the basis of Grant's executive order, Congress sent a delegation, led by future president James Garfield, to make arrangements with the tribe for their removal. Charlot ignored their demands and even their threats of bloodshed, and he again refused to sign any agreement to leave. U.S. officials then simply forged Charlot's "X" onto the official copy of the agreement that was sent to the Senate for ratification.

Over time, the real reason for the Hellgate treaty meetings became clear to the Salish and Pend d'Oreille people. Under the terms spelled out in the written document, the tribes ceded to the United States more than twenty million acres (81,000 km²) of land and reserved from cession about 1.3 million acres (5300 km²), thus forming the Jocko or Flathead Indian Reservation. Conditions had become intolerable for the Salish by the late 1880s, after the Missoula and Bitter Root Valley Railroad was constructed directly through the tribe's lands, with neither permission from the native owners nor payment to them. Charlot finally signed an agreement to leave the Bitterroot Valley in November 1889. Inaction by Congress, however, delayed the removal for another two years, and according to some observers, the tribe's desperation reached a level of outright starvation. In October 1891, a contingent of troops from Fort Missoula forced Charlot and the Salish out of the Bitterroot and roughly marched the small band sixty miles to the Flathead Reservation.

The three main tribes moved to the Flathead Reservation were the Bitteroot Salish, the Pend d'Oreille, and the Kootenai. The Bitterroot Salish and the Pend d'Oreille tribes spoke dialects of the same Salish language.

A dispute over off-reservation hunting between a band of Pend d'Oreilles and the state of Montana's Fish and Game department resulted in the Swan Valley Massacre of 1908.

Though marked for termination in 1953 under the House concurrent resolution 108 of the US federal Indian termination policy, the Flathead Tribes were able to resist the government's plans to terminate their tribal relationship in Congressional hearings in 1954.

Perry Mason - The Case of the Avenging Angel

00:41:18 Your honor, the state intends to show that this murder took place because the defendant in this case fell into the familiar show-business trap of believing his own press notices.

00:41:32 The decedent, cletus hawley, was a thoroughly established, highly proficient trainer and manager of talent.

00:41:40 He took an unknown boy, sanford "sandy" chester, under his wing, signed him to a personal contract, and then molded and trained him into an exploitable personality, ready to be launched on a successful career.

00:41:54 This boy, however, unfortunately developed an inflated sense of his own importance.

00:42:00 The star became too big for his mentor.

00:42:02 And when the manager, cletus hawley, now deceased, became disgusted with the behavior of his star and threatened to wreck his career on the very threshold of success, this boy, tragically and willfully, stabbed his manager to death.

00:42:23 Then the defendant's apparent success, his so-called career, was not based on any natural inherent talent or ability to perform, but on a carefully engineered and completely false buildup manufactured by you and cletus hawley?

00:42:40 It's routine.

00:42:41 And clete was a past master at it.

00:42:46 It's simple, really.

00:42:47 You hire a hundred screamers like those kids outside, plant the gig, and you can make an overnight sensation out of a wooden indian.

00:42:55 What about the girl on the billboard -- was that part of the buildup?

00:42:58 It turned out to be.

00:42:59 And it sure kicked the kid's career into orbit.
