Pam Spaulding writes the following at Pam's House Blend about Hillary's big Bosnian Lie:
What is wrong with Hillary Clinton and her advisers? In an effort to promote her foreign policy experience -- and thus draw a contrast between the NY senator and Barack Obama, she boldly claimed on March 17 that she went on a harrowing, brave trip to Bosnia in 1996 as First Lady.
"I certainly do remember that trip to Bosnia... we came in in an evasive maneuver... I remember landing under sniper fire... there was no greeting ceremony... we ran with our heads down, we basically were told to run to our cars... there was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, we basically were told to run to our cars, that is what happened."
Now as First Lady, she and her crack team of high-paid consultants should have known that there were not only reporters on the trip (and video) to blow away this account. But no, they stuck to their story, and the end result is that the video evidence has surfaced, making her look like a prevaricating resume padder.
And the Washington Post has a blow-by-blow account of the fibbing and the facts, including her 1996 traveling companion on that trip, the comedian Sinbad, who has no idea where Clinton's account came from.
Clinton herself when called on it said "Well, I guess I made a mistake. Just proves I'm human which might be a surprise to some people around here." She said it off-handedly as if to say "So what!" What? Has she and Cheney come to an agreement as to how to answer reporters questions that put them on the spot and embarrass them?
Yeah, I know all politicians are liars but Hillary should have known how easy it would be to call her on it. Is it that she doesn't give a damn? Maybe!
