President’s embarrassing error during press briefing amended on official transcript.
The White House website had to correct an embarrassing mistake made by President Obama during his press briefing yesterday. The President said that U.S. forces were “training ISIL.”
While the President’s error has been amended on the official transcript the original quote has been left with the addition of the word ‘Iraqi’ which is in brackets after the word ISIL to correct Obama’s mistake.
“with the additional steps I ordered last month, we’re speeding up training of ISIL forces.” he said during his speech.
