Be responsible

Post by Nami Nami » Tue Feb 28, 2012 3:32 am

Dear teacher,

I saw this on the Internet:

"Sources said that Mr Netanyahu failed to impress Mr Obama with a flow chart purporting to show that he was not be responsible for the timing ..."

(source: ... or-dinner/)

Is this incorrect grammatically? Thanks.

Yes, an obvious misprint! Delete 'be'.
