Hillary the liar not to be confused with Jacob
You've heard of 'Jacob the Liar'? Well now we have Hillary the liar only Hillary's lies were not to give hope to people under a difficult situation. Her staffers are quoted as saying Hillary 'mispoke'. No staffers Hillary outright lied about what happened. Here's her exact words:
Senator Clinton had last week told of coming under sniper fire when she arrived at Bosnia's Tuzla airbase in March 1996.
"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," Senator Clinton had recounted.
Then the nightly news showed what really happened. There she was in long black coat and scarf (no helmet or flack jacket) walking about 50 feet to an eight year old girl who handed her a piece of paper. Hillary was traveling with Sinbad the comedian.
This is the second time she's told this lie. Once during the Iowa primary and once last week. I'm glad the newsmedia caught this one. If there's one thing I hate it's a liar.
