Pfc. Jessica Lynch talks on her cell phone following an interview with the Associated Press Tuesday, Nov. 11, 2003, in New York, in which she says she is "disturbed" by miltary reports that falsely said she went down shooting in an Iraqi ambush and dramatized her rescue by U.S. troops. "That wasn't me. I wasn't about to take credit for something I didn't do," she told the Associated Press.
