Hillary Opens Defense Talk With Spiraling Kosovo Sniper Fire Lie
Why must the sky be blue?
Why must the grass be green?
Why must the Clinton’s lie when they open their mouths?
Hillary opens up her ridiculous talk on the Iraq War with her “spiraling free fall into Kosovo sniper fire lie” that has already been discredited by everyone, even Sinbad the Entertainer.
Democratic presidential candidate Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) delivers a campaign speech on the war in Iraq at George Washington University in Washington, March 17, 2008.
Hillary remarks on the Troops:
Good morning. I want to thank Secretary West for his years of service, not only as Secretary of the Army, but also to the Veteran’s Administration, to our men and women in uniform, to our country. I certainly do remember that trip to Bosnia, and as Togo 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. That’s 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. (Hillary, Chelsea, Sinbad and Cheryl Crow!… Honestly!)
But it was a moment of great pride for me to visit our troops, not only in our main base as Tuzla, but also at two outposts where they were serving in so many capacities to deactivate and remove landmines, to hunt and seek out those who had not complied with the Dayton Accords and put down their arms, and to build relationships with the people that might lead to a peace for them and their children.
McClatchy Watch has more on Hillary’s dangerous drop down into Kosovo.
This is how Sinbad described the trip with Hillary, Chelsea and Cheryl Crow:
In an interview with the Sleuth Monday, he (Sinbad) said the “scariest” part of the trip was wondering where he’d eat next. “I think the only ‘red-phone’ moment was: ‘Do we eat here or at the next place.'”
Threat of bullets? Sinbad doesn’t remember that, either.
“I never felt that I was in a dangerous position. I never felt being in a sense of peril, or ‘Oh, God, I hope I’m going to be OK when I get out of this helicopter or when I get out of his tank.'”
“…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.’“
When even Sinbad calls you a liar you know you are in trouble.
But, that didn’t stop Hillary from repeating it today.
