So Much For "Distractions" …Obama Blasts Hillary On Tuzla
After whining about unfair media attacks by ABC, and how he was knifed by Hillary Clinton, and how the media was focusing on “distractions”, blah blah blah…
The Obama Campaign attacked Hillary on her Tuzla lies today.
They even paraded 3 Bosnian veterans out to do the attacking for them.
ABC Political Radar reported:
ABC News’ Sunlen Miller and Kate Snow report: Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign has reinvigorated its attack against Sen. Hillary Clinton, today rolling out three Bosnian war veterans to make the case that Clinton was dishonorable when she made inaccurate comments about dodging sniper fire in Bosnia.
Clinton has admitted that her campaign trail claim that she dodged sniper fire in 1996 while landing in Tuzla airport in Bosnia was a misstatement.
At Wednesday’s ABC News debate, she said, “I’m embarrassed by it. I have apologized for it. I’ve said it was a mistake. And it is, I hope, something that you can look over.”
But today, it was clear the Obama campaign was not ready to look over this issue, calling a conference call with reporters and offering up veterans who have faced sniper fire to take issue with Clinton’s claim.
U.S. Maj. Gen. Walter Stewart called Clinton’s misstatement a “dishonor” that showed a lack of moral authority.
Retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer Michael Kotyk called Clinton’s statement a whopper and said, “If she’s gonna tell stories like that is as candidate, what will she do when she’s standing in front of Congress? … How do you expect your troops to follow you if you’re not providing good leadership?”
The veterans argued that the misstatement wasn’t their issue. It was what her statement showed about Clinton’s honesty level.
“This isn’t about misspeaking,” Stewart argued. “This is about your character.”
Clinton communications director Howard Wolfson shot back (so to speak) on a conference call with reporters.
“Boy when the Obama campaign decides to go negative, they really go negative!” Wolfson said.
Meanwhile… The Hillary Campaign is distributing a memo on how the GOP will attack Obama.
