Carter to Congress: Mosul Briefing Inaccurate

Reuters reports that “a U.S. military official who briefed news media about Iraq’s upcoming offensive to retake Mosul provided inaccurate information but should never have publicly discussed war plans anyway, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Tuesday.”  

“Carter’s criticism of the February news briefing by an official from the U.S. military’s Central Command was accompanied by an assurance from the top U.S. military officer to Congress that the matter was subject to an internal inquiry.”
