Truth Challenged Hillary Earns Four well-deserved Pinnocios

"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 Clinton, speech at George Washington University, March 17, 2008.

This Hillary Clinton account of her trip to Bosnia in 1996 is pure fiction. Video footage of the welcoming ceremony is available. The comic entertainer Sinbad was on the same trip and does not recall sniper fire, nor do the others who were there. Her current account of the trip was not reported that way at the time.

According to the Washington Post “Fact Checker” Michael Dobbs (link):
"Clinton's tale of landing at Tuzla airport 'under sniper fire' and then running for cover is simply not credible. Photographs and video of the arrival ceremony, combined with contemporaneous news reports, tell a very different story. "

For this “whopper” Hillary earned “Four Pinocchios.” Why do the Clintons have such a hard time telling the truth? Why would you lie, when the truth can so easily be discovered? Can she just not help herself?
