From the ArmsControlWonk:

So, I am reading my copy of George Tenet's At the Center of the Storm.

I turn to the account of the strike on Dora Farm first. Tenet offers the standard account-embellished by an odd new detail here, an occasional defense of his own role there-when Tenet says that "targets were being passed to B-2s …"

Wait a minute.

Then a couple of sentences later, "a number of bombs from the B-2s …"

The strike at Dora Farm--according to every other source including Plan of Attack, Cobra II, The Iraq War, and American Soldier--was conducted with F-117s.

Adam Hebert in Air Force Magazine profiled the strike and the pilots--Lt. Col. David F. Toomey III and Maj. Mark J. Hoehn--complete with pictures of the planes landing after the mission.

Did anyone fact-check this book?
