This whole sniper-gate
story makes no sense - and her excuse makes even less sense.
The fact is that Clinton and her entourage were
warned in advance that Bosnia was hostile territory
and that there had been sniper fire reported
in the hills surrounding the tarmac at some point before
the trip. As a journalist on the trip, the story
I wrote began, "Venturing to the front lines of the Bosnia
peacekeeping mission, Hillary Rodham Clinton
greeted U.S. troops today and heard horror stories
about the region's devastating civil war."
It continued: "Security was tight - fighter jets
accompanied her DC-17 cargo plane to Tuzla
- but officials said the first lady took no extraordinary
risks on the trip."
In her biography, Clinton wrote about the reports
of snipers in the hills and said she met with local
children on the tarmac, adding that the gathering
was cut short by security concerns. All plausible,
and a mission to be proud of.
But during a speech last week on Iraq, Clinton
stretched the truth to the breaking point.
"I certainly do remember that trip to Bosnia
and ... I remember landing under sniper fire.
There was supposed to be some kind of greeting
ceremony at the airport, but instead
we just ran with our heads down to get into the
vehicles to get to our base."
Sure, it's possible to remember something funny, but this went
Did she confuse this trip with another trip? Remember the way Al Gore
was "caught lying" about a
FEMA trip that Tim the Whore attacked him relentlessly for, under orders
from Karl Rove?
There's no value in making up a story when there were witnesses and
Were they supposed to land at Point A, but couldn't because of sniper
so they landed at Point B, instead? Is there a good reason for what
And I get that she could've been dead tired, but I don't think I could
get so tired
that the facts of a story could change that much. It's her biggest
blunder so far.
The whore media wants to know if she has a "pattern" of exaggerating,
but I have a feeling
that if the most investigated woman in history was a serial liar, we'd
have heard about it.
So - what's next?
I can't believe how much worse this Demo civil war has gotten since
Even if Obama implodes and Hillary wins by default - the hate factor
is off the charts.
She's hated so much more today than she was on Monday, and I'm sure
she'll be more hated than she is today. She's the most demonized
woman in history.
That same article says "Yes, she's held to
a higher standard than Obama," which seems
to be an admission that the media has given Obama a free ride - and
that's not good for us,
but as always we have to play the hand we're dealt.
She needs a miracle quick or I think it's time for her to step aside.
She's in the worst of all places - if McCain crushes Obama like many
say he will, all Obama
has to do is say, "It was Hillary's fault,
not mine" and the "We love Obama" press
will go with that story - as will history.
