Hillary Clinton Dodges Sniper Fire in Bosnia

You may recall that Hillary Clinton has cited her 1996 trip to Bosnia as part of her foreign policy experience and just last week described landing at the airport while evading sniper fire.

Comedian Sinbad accompanied Clinton on the trip and disputes Clinton's harrowing story.

The following video includes some archived news footage from the 1996 trip, as well as Hillary's statements last Tuesday. I'll let you draw your own conclusions.



Clinton says, "We were told to run to our cars. Now that is what happened."

It doesn't look like she's running to me.

UPDATE: After this video footage became available, Hillary Clinton has now acknowledged that she "misspoke" in her prepared remarks about Bosnia.  She failed to mention that she "misspoke" multiple times and in prepared statements on the topic, but she did admit that she "misspoke" on the subject.  

I guess "misspoke" is the 2008 version of it depends on what "is, is".

Also it may be a small matter, but when acknowledging her mistake she said, "I say a lot of things -- millions of words a day -- so if I misspoke, that was just a mistatement."

But saying even 1,000,000 words in a day would require Hillary to say over 11.5 words per second for 24 hours. Another "amazing" exaggeration from the Clinton campaign.
