    Default Witnesses

    http://entertainment1.sympatico.msn....etect=&abc=abc

    THis is taken from the link above:
    1. A fact witnesses confirmed. (Why is 'witnesses' not 'witness'? I don't think it is an error, but why is it 'witnesses'?)

    http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Oct2...41006abate.pdf ('A fact witnesses' is used here too.)

    Thanks.

    Opps. I was reading it as an adjective.

    1. A fact witness.
