Yes, this is the basic framework. However, your position is
that a history that has errors in it is not history but fiction.
That would disqualify most works of history. It can be bad
history that is filled with mistakes , but the genre is history.
Having read the O'Reilly book and the critiques, I would say it is
bad history. At the same time, I do not think the errors are
egregious as have been made out to be. The story is basically intact.
