In defending the other half of Billary Inc., Bill Clinton, the dumbest President in my lifetime, gets it backwards yet again:
Bill Clinton has criticized the press over its coverage of Hillary Clinton’s Bosnia visit flap, saying reporters treated her as if “she’d robbed a bank.”
Hillary acknowledged two weeks ago that she "misspoke" and "made a mistake" when she said she landed under sniper fire during a 1996 visit to war-torn Bosnia.
Speaking to a gathering in Indiana, which holds its primary on May 6, the former president said:
“There was a lot of fulminating because Hillary, one time late at night when she was exhausted, misstated — and immediately apologized for it — what happened to her in Bosnia…
"What really has mattered is that even then she was interested in our troops. And I think she was the first first lady since Eleanor Roosevelt to go into a combat zone. And you woulda thought, you know, that she'd robbed a bank the way they carried on about this. And some of them, when they're 60, they'll forget something when they're tired at 11 at night, too."
According to politico.com, CBS News producer Ryan Corsaro pointed out that Hillary made the sniper fire claim in mid-morning on St. Patrick's Day, and CBS has aired videotape of Clinton making the claim on at least two other occasions.
As for the Eleanor Roosevelt assertion, Pat Nixon traveled to Vietnam in 1969.
Hillary LIED about Bosnia at least three different times, that's not a misstep, that's what you do when you're losing and become desperate. She used Bosnia to talk up her supposed "foreign policy experience" and she got caught in a lie the same way her husband did about Monica. When you're running for a chance to be President of the United States, make repeated lies about facing "sniper fire" in Bosnia to build up your resume and diss our troops all at the same time, it's going to get noticed. Deal with it.
