Hillary Clinton continues to battle the concept that she is dishonest and untrustworthy in her quest for the White House. Unfortunately for the Democratic nominee, issues such as Benghazi and her email server continue to reinforce this impression of her. It may be one of her older lies that has been thoroughly debunked that is the most damaging to her, however.
A false claim that Hillary Clinton made while campaigning for president in 2008 is coming back to haunt her in the 2016 election cycle.
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee said in a speech at George Washington University in March 2008 that she landed “under sniper fire” during a 1996 trip to Bosnia. The war ended in 1995, but tensions within the country were still high.
“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,” she said in 2008.
The Washington Post debunked this claim days after Clinton made it.
Old news footage reveals that there was, in fact, a greeting ceremony at Tuzla Air Base when Clinton landed. She met an 8-year-old Muslim girl who read her a poem, and video of the landing shows Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, calmly walking away from the plane and then greeting people on the tarmac[.]
NBC did the responsible thing when they terminated Brian Williams’ contract last year over his debunked lies. It appears, however, that Democratic voters are much more
gullible forgiving, as they continue to support Hillary Clinton.
