Hillary tells one huge whopper!

And i’m not talking about Burger King!

On Friday she said about a trip to Tuzla in Bosnia when she was First Lady:

`I certainly do remember that trip to Bosnia, and as Togo [West, former Secretary of the Army] said, there was a saying around the White House that if a place was too small, too poor, or too dangerous, the president couldn’t go, so send the First Lady. Thats where we went.

I remember landing under sniper fire. 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.`

Er,no actually. The problem is that there was no sniper fire. The ceremony took place on the tarmac. And nobody ran with their heads down to get in to vehicles in fear of being shot.

Fact: There was no sniper fire!

Fact: There WAS a greeting ceremony including an 8-year old girl saying how great that there was now peace

Fact: There is no actual airport – just a runway

Fact: Chelsea also went there (why would you let a 16-year-old greet an 8-year-old with Hillary when the place is so `dangerous`?)

Her defence is classic Clintonian – by a Clinton communications officer:

was on the plane with then First Lady Hillary Clinton for the trip from Germany into Bosnia in 1996. We were put on a C17– a plane capable of steep ascents and descents — precisely because we were flying into what was considered a combat zone.

We were issued flak jackets for the final leg because of possible sniper fire near Tuzla. As an additional precaution, the First Lady and Chelsea were moved to the armored cockpit for the descent into Tuzla.

We were told that a welcoming ceremony on the tarmac might be canceled because of sniper fire in the hills surrounding the air strip. From Tuzla, Hillary flew to two outposts in Bosnia with gunships escorting her helicopter.”

Of course if Obama had done this you’d never hear the end of it. When Hillary does it it’s alright as she’s part of the system the Mainstream media there love – letting Repubs win!

If she can tell a bare-faced lie over this what else is she lying about:

NAFTA? 3am Calls?
