Clinton calls Bosnia sniper story a mistake


Clinton calls Bosnia sniper story a mistake
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has said she made a mistake when she claimed she had come under sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia in 1996 while she was first lady. In a speech in Washington and in several interviews last week Clinton described how she and her daughter, Chelsea, ran for cover under hostile fire shortly after her plane landed in Tuzla, Bosnia. Several news outlets disputed the claim and a video of the trip, showed Clinton walking from the plane, accompanied by her daughter. They were greeted by a young girl in a small ceremony on the tarmac and there was no sign of tension or any danger. "I did make a mistake in talking about it, you know, the last time and recently," Clinton told reporters in Pennsylvania where she was campaigning before the state's April 22 primary. She said she had a "different memory" about the landing. "So I made a mistake. That happens. It proves I'm human, which, you know, for some people, is a revelation."

It is said of the Clintons that they tell a big lie when a small lie would suffice and tell a small lie when telling the truth would be fine, this outright ‘sniper dodging’ and sprinting off the plane lie is in stark contrast to watching the actual footage from Bosnia where she strolls around, meeting little girls and groups of school children, shaking hands with all the soldiers and the only time she ducks is when entering the armored Humvee. That the reality is so different from the lie is actually very bloody damaging to Hillary, much more than Obama’s Pastor pointing out some righteous black anger aimed at white America – how many more mistakes does Hillary need to be caught out on before she looses all credibility? God I love this election.

I think you'll find Obama lied about having gone to church for years and not heard the hatred sprewing out of his preachers mouth.

That seems to be very damaging to him.

Hey Bomber... Hillary lost all her credibility whilst 'Slick Willy' was still in office. Any normal spouse would have high-tailed it out of there. But no, not our Hillary ... she had ambitions of her own and her husband was a convenient 'mule'!
Well that's my take on it!

Not according to Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.

But to bomber this obviously isn't classed as hate speech.

Well that depneds doesn't it anonynous poster, do catholics feel guilty that their church did everything they could to ban condoms in Africa? Do White people feel guilty that our pharmacutical companies make a killing from AIDs drugs and charge western prices in the third world? Should we feel guilty about the very little we've done to the scope of the problem? See I think those are issues that do need to be addressed, but I suppose when a black man points these things out it's racist isn't it?

To anonymous posters that's hate speech isn't it?

... Or should every palestinian feel guilty for every rocket and suicide bombing targeting israelis, irrespective of whether they are responsible or not.

here,s where you butt in bomber and say some should be held to different standards because of some arbitrary attribute they possess.

She was named after Edmund Hillary while he was still a bee keeper in Papakura too apparently.

Ah well, as long as the Democratic nominees rip each other to shreds, it leaves the opening clear for another Republican victory.

What a destructive way (to the party) to find your next nominee.

Hillary Clinton Fondly Recalls Leading Arkansas to 1994 NCAA Title
Asked by a reporter if she was participating in an NCAA Tournament pool today, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wowed media members by recalling the magical run the Arkansas Razorbacks made to the 1994 championship – a run Clinton says she fueled by averaging 38 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, good enough to be named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player.

“The mid-90s were a tough time for Arkansas with Bill and I off to the White House,” said Clinton. “We felt the hard-working men and women there needed something to uplift them. Bill was wrapped up in various things, so it was left to me to go down there and win them a championship. And I did.”



Clinton says her championship illustrates a big difference between herself and her rival, Sen. Barack Obama.

“He likes to talk about how he is a basketball player, how he was a sixth man in high school, how he still plays pick-up games,” said Clinton. “But he never led a team to a national championship. I have. I have years of experience playing basketball. He has one left-hand dribble.”

The junior senator from New York says she will never forget the 1994 championship game.

“We had Corliss Williamson, Scotty Thurman – good players,” said Clinton. “But we were going up against Duke, a powerhouse. We didn’t have a chance without me bringing my A-game. But you all know I never duck from a fight.”

Clinton recalls one series of plays in the second half that allowed the Razorbacks to pull away.

“Cherokee Parks got the ball down low in the post and had great position on Corliss,” she said. “He had an easy lay-up to tie the game. But I came flying in and just swatted that sh-t out out of there. Just jumped up, ripped the ball out of the air and came down with it. I had to have been two feet above the rim. At least. Maybe more. I remember almost catching my chin on the top of the backboard. Then I pushed it up court, went behind my back to get past Chris Collins at midcourt, and then just f—king dunked right on Grant Hill’s head. Just right on his motherf—king head. I mean, I teabagged the kid. I remember hanging on the rim screaming and my balls were dangling on his head. And that was pretty much the game right there. We were national champions.”

Questioned by a reporter who said there is no record of Clinton on the 1994 Razorbacks, Clinton said she may have remembered incorrectly.

“Well, that’s what I recall happening,” she said. “But, who knows. It was many years ago. I may be wrong. Perhaps I just watched the game on TV at the White House. But let’s not get off the main point here: Barack Obama hates white people. White people and America. White people, America and Christians."
