Wictor is meticulous and accurate when it comes to all matters Military.
Assuming that is correct, he didn't say that Phillips was never a Marine, he said that the capacity he claimed probably wasn't true.
The piece didn't even deny his presence in Vietnam, rather that it was probably an adviser type role.
Listen, Phillips most likely got caught red handed lying about this encounter (over the weekend). More evidence points to him fabricating much of his narrative than supporting any of it other than what we saw.
"Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War.
Phillips served in the U.S. Marines from 1972 to 1976 but was never deployed to Vietnam."

I watched some of the "confrontation" video last night.
The only people acting or talking aggressively were the black something or other "I really forget who they were" off to the side yelling faggots and telling the natives they had lost their land because they worshipped totem poles instead of god.
The kid shown in the video being portrayed as a trump loving racist was just standing there waiting.
The native man approached him and got in the kids face. No reaction from the kid but an occasional smile.
The short video clip is nothing more than a lie to try to push an agenda. If any media outlet didn't do the research before publication then they are incompetent and anything coming from within their walls should be questioned.
Mulder was on to something.
Trust no one..
