Hillary Clinton Get Caught in ANOTHER LIE About Her Experience

Posted by avideditor on March 22, 2008

Hillary Clinton Get Caught in ANOTHER LIE About Her Experience: “New York’s Junior Senator Hillary Clinton keeps getting caught in lies about her foreign policy experience. Two weeks ago, Clinton was on CNN and claimed that she helped to bring peace to Northern Ireland . Lord Trimble of Lisnagarvey, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and former First Minister of the province said Ms. Clinton’s claims were a ‘wee bit silly’ which is just a sophisticated British way of saying she is full of Blarney.

Now another Hillary invented myth gets shot to hell. Sen. Hillary Clinton has told about arriving in Bosnia under sniper fire kind of like a foreign policy hero, with a landing and escape under fire like a scene from an action movie. But the Washington Post retrieved a photo showing that upon landing, she actually was greeted in a customary tarmac ceremony, complete with a kiss for a native child.

Photo refutes Hillary’sniper fire’ account Image of Bosnia ceremony contradicts story used to boost foreign policy ‘cred’

Clinton has declared on the campaign trail that a welcoming ceremony for the March 25, 1996, arrival in Tuzla was canceled, and she had to run from the airplane into an airport building for safety. The then-first lady’s traveling party included 15-year-old daughter Chelsea, the comedian Sinbad and singer Sheryl Crow.

‘I remember landing under sniper fire,’ Clinton recounted. ‘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.’

But the Post’s Michael Dobbs says that ‘as a reporter who visited Bosnia soon after the December 1995 Dayton Peace agreement, I can attest that the physical risks were minimal during this period, particularly at a heavily fortified U.S. Air Force base, such as Tuzla.’

Dobbs’s report in the Post’s ‘Fact Checker’ column has been noted by weblogs Newsbusters and HotAir.com but virtually ignored by mainstream media.

‘Had Hillary Clinton’s plane come ‘under sniper fire’ in March 1996, we would certainly have heard about it long before now,’ Dobbs writes.

He pointed out that numerous reporters, including the Post’s John Pomfret, covered Clinton’s trip, and a review of nearly 100 news accounts of their visit ‘shows that not a single newspaper or television station reported any security threat to the first lady.’

Pomfret declared, ‘As a former AP wire service hack, I can safely say that it would have been in my lead had anything like that happened,’.

Dobbs says Clinton and her entourage were greeted by smiling U.S. and Bosnian officials, and an 8-year-old Muslim girl, Emina Bicakcic, read a poem in English.

The actor Sinbad had a different account of the trip than Clinton, telling the Post’s ‘Sleuth’ column Monday the ‘scariest’ part was worrying about whether ‘we eat here or at the next place.’

Clinton defended her story on the campaign trail this week and dismissed the actor’s contention, saying, ‘Sinbad is a comedian.’

Clinton repeated the Bosnia story, saying she remembers ‘landing under sniper fire’ and that ‘we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.’
