I Just Misspoked: Hillary and the Misuses of Enchantment

Hillary Gives a Double Bisou to a Bosnian Girl in the Midst of Savage Sniper Fire

A Heroic Emergency International Mission

Many years ago, way back in 1996, Hillary Clinton and her elite team of Justice League Superheroes (Chelsea, Sheryl Crow and America’s Super Comedian, Sinbad) embarked upon a super-dangerous international emergency mission, to be airlifted into Bosnia to save our troops from enemy sniper fire. Hillary often has recounted that harrowing experience during her campaign as just one of many events that attest to her exceptional level of global experience with wars and troops. In her commentaries about her diplomatic work abroad, Hillary divulges that she was sent on missions to places that her husband, President Clinton, could not go because they were absolutely “too dangerous.”

In a speech that she gave at Georgetown University on March 17, 2008, Hillary felt compelled to up the ante by adding some juicy new hair-raising details about her trip to Bosnia, “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.”

The Heroic Mission Unravels: Hillary’s Bosnia Whopper

But then Sinbad had to go and ruin all of Hillary’s fun. He started telling people in the media that they really just flew there in an airplane to do a fun “meet and greet” with the American troops who were stationed there as peace keepers at the time, and nobody was ever, ever in any danger of any kind. “What kind of president would say, ‘Hey, man, I can’t go ’cause I might get shot so I’m going to send my wife…oh, and take a guitar player and a comedian with you.'” He added, “I think the only ‘red-phone’ moment was: ‘Do we eat here or at the next place.'”

At that point, news reporters really began looking into what really occurred during Hillary’s journey to Bosnia. And what they’ve discovered isn’t very pretty. When you tell the American voters that you faced snipers and gunfire at the airport, and it turns out all you really faced was a little girl with flowers…well, that’s as bad as it gets. When you dramatically say that you went on a mission that was too dangerous for the president, only to have it revealed that he made the same trip two months earlier (and that your teenaged daughter was by your side) that only makes it worse.

Then Monday night, March 24, 2008, CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson, who with a CBS News crew accompanied Hillary on that Bosnia trip, revealed a more accurate picture of what the trip was like. Attkisson reported that there were no gunshots or sniper fire at the airport, and there was no sniper fire either when Clinton visited two army outposts, where she posed for photos. And no sniper fire back at the base, where she sang in a USO show starring Sinbad and Sheryl Crowe.

Asked about the issue during a meeting with the Philadelphia Daily News‘ editorial board on Monday, Clinton said she “misspoke.”

I Misremembered, Misspoke, Exaggerated or Whatever

Oh Sinbad, be Quiet. You’re Just a Joker.

    I like your reportage of the superhero team mission.

    What person would let his wife and 16 year old daughter enter a war zone and be exposed to sniper fire? No one would. The idea is laughable, yet it was written into her stump speech. What were they thinking? I am guessing they figured the compliant press would not do its job as was often the case in the past. It is amazing to me that the spinners are giving her the benefit of the doubt and attribute it to a faulty memory. You think you would remember running from sniper fire. She said it the first time she misspoke in 12 years; that might come back to haunt Hillary “Mount Everest-Not” Clinton.

    She was asked about the sniper remark four times and she stood by her remarks each time.

    There were 4000 armed men, Navy SEALS, Secret Service, 40 tanks, and attack helicopters overhead. As one military man said, “There was nobody coughing the day she showed up”. It is insulting to those protecting her.
