Hillary Clinton: I Survived Sniper Fire In Bosnia

Hillary Clinton: I Survived Sniper Fire In Bosnia

By Robert Paul Reyes

In eight years as First Lady Hillary Clinton was responsible for only one major initiative: Her national health plan fiasco.

Hillary's tenure at the White House consisted of typical First Lady duties: Having tea with spouses of foreign leaders, decorating the White House and standing by her man.

In a brazen attempt to burnish her White House credentials Hillary has even taken credit for peace in Ireland. Nevermind, that her audacious claims have been denounced by those who were instrumental in bringing peace to that troubled land. And I thought that Al Gore had a lot of chutzpah for declaring that he invented the Internet.

Hillary is not done exaggerating her accomplishments during her husband's presidency. The following Washington Post story illustrates just how much Hillary is willing to lie and exaggerate to make herself appear presidential:

"Hillary Clinton has been regaling supporters on the campaign trail with hair-raising tales of a trip she made to Bosnia in March 1996. In her retelling, she was sent to places that her husband, President Bill Clinton, could not go because they were 'too dangerous.' When her account was challenged by one of her traveling companions, the comedian Sinbad, she upped the ante and injected even more drama into the story. In a speech earlier this week, she talked about 'landing under sniper fire' and running for safety with 'our heads down.'"

There is absolutely no proof that Hillary Clinton ever came under sniper fire. In this age of Google a politician can't get away with such an outlandish lie. Certainly if Hillary had come under fire it would have been a huge story, but if you google "Hillary Clinton", "sniper fire" and "Bosnia" you won't get any hits backing up her wild and false story.

Hillary presents a rather large target, figuratively and literally, there is no way snipers would have missed.

We don't need a commander-in-chief who is delusional; when dealing with despots and dictators like the leaders of North Korea and Iran, a rational mind is a necessity.

The only sniper fire that Hillary has taken is from pundits like me who are sick and tired of her mendacity.
