Remember now, Sen. Clinton has been under a lot of stress and simply "misspoke"...The pilot who commanded the C-17 aircraft on which Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., flew into Bosnia says there wasn't even a bumblebee flying around when the aircraft landed with the now-Democratic presidential hopeful.
But doesn't it make for a more interesting story when it is told like this..."I gotta tell ya, I will give it to the commander of Air Base Eagle. He had that place – you know, not only were there no bullets flying around, there wasn't a bumblebee flying around," the pilot told Humphries.
Oh, you "misspoke", right? I keep forgetting..."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,"
"Misspoke, "minor blip", "misstatement"?Clinton's campaign later conceded she "misspoke" about the trip, and Clinton herself has described it as a "minor blip" and a "misstatement."
Changose said there wasn't even a hint of a threat, because he would not have landed under such circumstances while carrying Clinton on his flight.
The senator had described approaching the landing using an "evasive maneuver."
"No evasive maneuver," Changose said.
Must be her memory then...She described how she was taken up front to the ****pit and others were ordered to sit on their flak jackets. But Changose says he was the commander of the flight and never ordered that anyone sit on their flak jackets.
"We did the same approach we did every time, a steep approach," he said. "There are hills around. Every landing into there was the same way."
There were no bullets flying, he confirmed, because he was up in the ****pit, and "we probably would have seen them."
Of this I'm certain...He said if there had been any sniper fire present, "We wouldn't have landed. I wouldn't have let her outside the plane," he said. "The fact that we landed tells you there's nothing going to happen."
Hey, wonder what Clinton did eat?The actor Sinbad has told reporters the "scariest" part was worrying about whether "we eat here or at the next place."

"Misspoke, "minor blip", "misstatement"?
Or an outright LIE?
Perhaps her memory is failing...
Must be her memory then...
Of this I'm certain...
Hey, wonder what Clinton did eat?
No wait a minute I know...
She's an expert in guerrilla warfare, she's the best, with guns, with knives, with her bare hands. She's been trained to ignore pain, ignore weather, to live off the land, to eat things that would make a billy goat puke. In Arkansas and Washington DC her job was to dispose of enemy personnel. To kill! Period! Win by attrition. Well Hillary was the best.
Actually I've wondered why there has not been an issue about Hillary taking her then young daughter into a hot "war" zone. Wasn't she younger than 18 at the time? Great 3AM "family" momment....WA4MJF said:Someone KNOWS when they're being shot at and they remember the first time
that they hear that flat crack sound over their head forever. I remembermy first
time and that was in November of 1966, I just stood there wondering and my
squad leader grabbed my LBJ and pulled me down flat on my back. I said
"what was that?" He said, "Charlie tryin' to kill you, son"
