The Washington Post has revealed the startling facts behind the Hillary-Clinton-in-Bosnia story.
You may recall that Hillary Clinton visited Tuzia military airport on March 25, 1996, and described the landing in a speech last week at GW University as:
"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."
Turns out to be hairier than she makes out.
She was actually greeted by the midget posing as an 8-year-old flower girl (shown in the photo above,) moments before the impostor whipped out the 9-mm Glock concealed in the bouquet. Sen. Clinton and others immediately ran for cover as the "little girl" began shooting at random. Military police, momentarily confused, came to the rescue. The fate of the shooter is classified.
Why Sen. Clinton chose to downplay this incident is a mystery. Calls to campaign headquarters were not returned at blog-time.
While Sen. Clinton's husband, Big Dog Bill, had also visited the same airport in his official capacity as President of the United States a week earlier, there appears to be no connection between the events, his predilection for short women not being considered relevant.
Also debunked are rumors that NAFTA proponents were behind the incident, and merely were hoping to scare Sen. Clinton into changing her well-known opposition to the treaty. The fact that, indeed, Clinton did support NAFTA after all was, her campaign says, merely coincidence, and does not represent a "flip-flop," as characterized by her rival (the black guy formerly known as bi-racial) Barack Obama.
