Sometimes Video is the best arbiter (update)
Posted by: McQ on Monday, March 24, 2008

Because, it seems, political memories are sometimes very deficient:

She's not the only one - check all their stories out.

UPDATE: Pathetic. Her campaign is now claiming Sen. Clinton simply "misspoke" about her experience in Bosnia.
Asked today to square her recent descriptions with these accounts, Howard Wolfson, her spokesman, referred to several contemporaneous news accounts that described the region as hostile. He then added: “It is possible in the most recent instance in which she discussed this that she misspoke in regard to the exit from the plane, but there is no question if you look at contemporaneous accounts that she was going to a potential combat zone, that she was on the front lines.”

Asked at a later point in the call to clarify his comment, Mr. Wolfson said that news accounts at the time made clear that the area in which she was landing was “a potential combat zone and was hazardous.”

He said that in her memoir, “Living History,” she wrote about sniper fire in the hills and “clearly meant to say that” when she brought it up last week. He said she had described the event many times the same way and that “in one instance she said it slightly differently.”
That's not how I understand the word "misspoke" Mr. Wolfson, especially after "misspeaking" on several other occasions as well.

Well yes it just all depends on how you parse it...the meeting of a little girl is HARDLY a greeting ceremony...and then the little sprog held us up with some inane story from her childhood, which made us late, so WE RAN FOR OUR CARS...there were a lot of pesky reporters there and they were itching, JUST ITCHING to ask me about Bill’s infidelity with that fat intern and if that wasn’t one of the motivations for the assault on, WE RAN WITH OUR HEADS DOWN TO THE CARS.

If you thought we ran to the cars with our heads down because of snipers, well that’s YOUR problem, I never said it was the reason...nothing in my statement is untrue. Thank you.

Sinbad, what an embarrassment to his people...turning on the first Black POTUS...we should have left him for the snipers to finish off, or at least driven off in our cars, leaving him there with that little urchin.

You know, not every shot at a politician has to be "fair and balanced". Nor is it desirable that it would be. You wanna rehash the Iraq War debate every time another politician lies from a party other than Republican?

Don’t be stupid.

You mean like when Clinton (BIll and HIllary) said there were WMDs, Or Gore said there were WMDs, Or when Kerry said there were WMDs, or when Albright said there were WMDS,? Shall we continue to go down the list?

"or are memories only selective for the left? "

Maybe you should have said "or are memories only selective ON the left".


Hillary is trying to run the campaign like Bill did. The only thing the internet was not so prominent when Bill was out there telling lies left and right. Nowadays ordinary people can fact check what the politicians say and they are getting caught up more and more in lies and half truths.

This little incident wont matter though. I still beleive Hillary will be on the ticket in Nov.

The next thing you know the little girl will be an assassin and the envelope will actually be a supersecret CIA pistol.

Of course Hillary knew the top secret details so she had to obscure the truth to keep thousands of people who are secretly feeding the US secrets from getting scooped up and killed by interests against the US govt.

Like so many things associated with the Clintons, this story is outrageous, shameful, and not the least bit surprising. I believed I have moved into a state of belief about the Clintons in which absolutely nothing is shocking.
It will be interesting to see her squirm out of this one, now that the press have soured on her.

She said "I was sleep deprived - I misspoke"

Do we really want this woman answering the call at 3 am?

So much for her ability to stay lucid through a national crisis.

"I’m sorry I thought I said send a plane load of of aid to country X not 100 hellfire missiles. I was sleep deprived and I misspoke. Sorry about the innocent casualties, the republicans were distracting me."
