Hillary Clinton Dodging Bullets?

So Hillary Clinton has been talking about her harrowing adventures in Bosnia.
"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, March 17, 2008
Problem is? All that sniper fire? Never happened.

According to Pomfret, the Tuzla airport was "one of the safest places in Bosnia" in March 1996, and "firmly under the control" of the 1st Armored Division.

Far from running to an airport building with their heads down, Clinton and her party were greeted on the tarmac by smiling U.S. and Bosnian officials. An eight-year-old Moslem girl, Emina Bicakcic, read a poem in English. An Associated Press photograph of the greeting ceremony, above, shows a smiling Clinton bending down to receive a kiss.

If lying is one of the "ready on day one" tests Clinton keeps talking about, I guess she really is ready!

If we cant' trust Clinton to tell the truth about something like this, how can we trust her in the White House?
