From the NYTimes.com: Clinton Says She ‘Misspoke’ About Dodging Sniper Fire
As part of her argument that she has the best experience and instincts to deal with a sudden crisis as president, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton recently offered a vivid description of having to run across a tarmac to avoid sniper fire after landing in Bosnia as first lady in 1996.
Yet on Monday, Mrs. Clinton admitted that she “misspoke” about the episode — a concession that came after CBS News showed footage of her walking calmly across the tarmac with her daughter, Chelsea, and being greeted by dignitaries and a child.
This is what Hillary had originally said:
“I certainly do remember that trip to Bosnia, and as Togo said, there was a saying around the White House that if a place was too small, too poor, or too dangerous, the president couldn’t go, so send the First Lady. That’s where we went.
“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.
Hillary claims that she “misspoke”. Lied is more like it. Bosnia was so dangerous that we sent Hillary, sixteen year old Chelsea, Sheryl Crow, and Sinbad on peace mission instead of the President. Hillary is trying so hard to puff up her role as First Lady and to give herself Foreign Policy credibility. It’s already the second time that she’s been caught doing this.
Hillary is consistent in one thing. That she’ll say anything to become President.
