Morning Oopsy!

Yesterday, the White House released a transcript of a press briefing with Ben Rhodes, deputy national security advisor, that had a pretty big typo. Talking about the difference between the American and European response to Syria, the White House said that Rhodes remarked:

“…in fact, I think on Syria as a general matter we have been a leading provider of humanitarian assistance, on lethal assistance, and we’re taking this step to provide support for the military opposition.”

Emphasis added. This morning, the press office issued a correction noting that he’d actually said non-lethal assistance.

Oops!
