Poll: Hillary's "Sniper-Gate:" What really happened?

Posted at 1:33 PM on March 26, 2008 by Jeff Horwich

Hillary Clinton: 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.

Hmmm...evidently, the first lady's 1996 visit to Bosnia didn't play out that way. It was more like a leisurely stroll down the tarmac to the official greeting party, including an eight-year-old girl who gave her a poem. (And apparently, on this dangerous mission, comedian Sinbad was along for the ride.)

So now the sniping really begins. What can possibly account for her faulty recollection?

Leave your vote, and a comment with your own explanation!
