I’ve gotten several emails like today. This one’s from TPM Reader RK …
From the AP article you cited on Monday:
“Katharine Armstrong, owner of the ranch where the shooting occurred, said it happened toward the end of the hunt, when it was still sunny but as darkness was encroaching and they were preparing to go inside. She said Whittington made a mistake by not announcing that he had walked up to rejoin the hunting line, and Cheney didn’t see him as he tried to down a bird.
Armstrong said she saw Cheney’s security detail running toward the scene. “The first thing that crossed my mind was he had a heart problem,” she told The Associated Press.”
She talks like she SAW what happened at the scene, but she clearly had no idea what happened because she thought it was Cheney’s heart. So where exactly was she and what did she ACTUALLY see?
I think it’s important for us to realize — as investigators quickly do — that even good faith eyewitnesses often come up with very jumbled accounts of things they did see happen. But this is a good question. Did Armstrong really see what happened?
