Truscott Called onto the Carpet

Kudos to John in Carolina. We have followed John's battles with the NYT regarding some lies spread by Lucian Truscott and published in the NYT, and we have admired John's doggedness in pursuing the issue (and have tried to link him up with some members of the West Point class of '69).

To get the NYT to admit their mistake in publishing Truscott's false claims (which John has now done), and to get Truscott himself to admit, in so many words, that he shot his mouth off (again) and couldn't back it up when called out on the playground, is certainly satisfying to those who have followed John's efforts and to West Pointers everywhere.
