Armstrong lied.........

Is provoking Lied of Armstrong really necessary?

"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
It's one of the 20th century's most famous lines, but what if Neil Armstrong lied about when it was composed?
 NBC News has reported that The Apollo 11 astronaut was quoted in a 2005 biography as saying he formulated the line while en route to the moon, But Armstrong's brother Dean said in a new BBC documentary that it was written long before the astronaut's boots ever touched moon dust.
In the documentary, aired only months after  Armstrong's death , Dean Armstrong insisted his brother had showed him the remarks before the mission and asked his opinion.“Before he went to the Cape, he invited me down to spend a little time with him," Dean Armstrong said, according to the Telegraph. "He said 'why don’t you and I, once the boys go to bed, why don’t we play a game of Risk.' I said I’d enjoy that. We started playing Risk and then he slipped me a piece of paper and said 'read that.' I did. 
On that piece of paper there was 'That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’. He says 'what do you think about that?’ I said 'fabulous’. He said 'I thought you might like that, but I wanted you to read it’.”In "A Man on the Moon," author Andrew Chaikin wrote that Armstrong was flooded with suggestions for the first words.he would speak on the moon. Quotations from the Bible and Shakespeare were floated as possibilities, according to NBC.
Neil Armstrong also maintained that he said, "That's one small step for a man," but that the "a" was lost in transmission. In 2006, an analysis of the taped utterance seemed to find evidence of the missing article.
It has become the controversy after the death of Neil Armstrong that he lied about his famous quote but in my opinion it should not be become a controversy after the death of the first person who walked on moon. It is not a crime that making a quote in advance. Books written by personality always create a little bit controversy either it was a purpose of selling it. The book written by Abdul kalam "The Turning point" where he written that talks with Sonia Gandhi on the PM. It has also become the controversy in media.
