A story in Friday’s paper about battlefield commanders in Iraq taking questions and advice from politicians in Washington was inaccurate. During his presentation at the Land Combat Expo, V Corps commander Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez did not speak directly about interference from political leaders. Additionally, Stars and Stripes had been working through V Corps for an interview with Sanchez prior to the expo. Stars and Stripes, however, did not request an interview with Sanchez at the expo. Before Sanchez’s presentation, U.S. Army Europe public affairs officials and Stars and Stripes agreed that Sanchez would not be interviewed afterward.
