Hillary Clinton lied about coming under fire in a war zone...

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Agschmid (a host of the General Discussion forum).

"Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday 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" snip

"In a speech in Washington on March 17 Clinton said of the Bosnia trip: "I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."

"
She also told CNN last week: "There was no greeting ceremony and we were basically told to run to our cars. Now that is what happened."

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.

1. Agree with your last line

 

It all adds up, and what it adds up to is more of the same lying from her. Lying politicians from the last 5 decades have caused enough BS, and I am sick of it. Why trust her to do ANYTHING she claims to want to do? Best bet now: Bernie

2. And this post has dick shit to do with general discussion, but a ton to do with GD:Primary

but that would move the flame bait from general to primary where it is common place

Nice try, but most folks will see right through your not so subtle attempt

4. I was watching Senator Richard Blumenthal (D -CT) on Hardball

He gilded the lily about his military service. I forgave him and I forgive HRC too... I don't judge people by their worst moments.

8. yes, she will

 

Not just a lie but including her KID, who was then made complicit. Wonder if chelseas ever been asked about this.

Brian Williams got fired for this shit. Should we hold a presidential candidate to a lower or a higher standard?

5. In defense of Clinton, that's a minor embellishment.

I mean, if there's no greeting ceremony and instead they tell you to run to the cars, and it's a war zone, it would be easy to be fearful, even to the point of 'hearing' gunfire...I guess I forgive her totally for that. I mean, no one on ANY of these threads hasn't ever embellished a tale to make themselves look better, but it is awkward when it comes out.

I personally don't have any negative feeling toward Clinton based on this.

There's folks on this board whom have been shot at and several whom have been hit. When a single one of those tells me this is bullshit I will consider not posting it...

15. Who is going to lock it?

I am discussing the character of a proven liar. But go ahead and post nonsense since there is no acceptable defense.

As this is focused on a Democratic Presidential primary candidate, this should be posted in GDP.
