Clarification: California Adviser-Immigrant story

Correction: Veterans Home-Shooting story
YOUNTVILLE, Calif. (AP) -- In a story March 9 about a fatal shooting at a California veterans' home, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Jennifer Golick phoned her husband to tell him a former patient was holding her captive. Her father-in-law, Bob Golick, told the AP the information in a telephone interview soon after Golick was taken hostage. The California Highway Patrol investigated the crime and found that there was no evidence Jennifer Golick called her husband while captive. That prompted AP to contact Bob Golick again. He acknowledged he had misinterpreted an emotional and disjointed phone conversation with his son, who had learned the identity of the man who took Golick hostage from others at the scene, not from his wife....

Correction: Trump-CIA story
WASHINGTON (AP) -- In stories March 13-14 about President Donald Trump's pick to be the next CIA director, The Associated Press reported erroneously that nominee Gina Haspel oversaw a CIA prison in Thailand from 2003 to 2005. The prison closed in December 2002, and the AP has been unable to determine how long Haspel served as chief of base where the prison was located. The AP's reporting also suggested she oversaw the prison at the time that detainees Abu Zubaydah and Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri were subjected to waterboarding. Those detainees were waterboarded at the site, according to a 2014 Senate torture report and other documents, but the CIA won't confirm any details about Haspel's role in their treatment. During the period that both men were waterboarded, Haspel was a senior official in the CIA unit administering the detention program that used what the agency called "enhanced interrogation techniques."...
