AP Nit-Picks in Continued Hillary Bash over Bosnia

For weeks, AP has been railing on Hillary Clinton over her "hogwash" Bosnia tale of sniper fire, likening it to Gore's inventing the internet. AP has a history of harping on apparent hyperboles from candidates they don't like. Here's the latest:

Clinton misstates wife's Bosnia tale

"(AP)- THE SPIN:
"A lot of the way this whole campaign has been covered has amused me," Bill Clinton said... The president of Bosnia and Gen. Wesley Clark — who was there making peace where we'd lost three peacekeepers who had to ride on a dangerous mountain road because it was too dangerous to go the regular, safe way — both defended her because they pointed out that when her plane landed in Bosnia, she had to go up to the bulletproof part of the plane, in the front. Everybody else had to put their flak jackets underneath the seat in case they got shot at. And everywhere they went they were covered by Apache helicopters. So they just abbreviated the arrival ceremony...

THE FACTS:
Bill Clinton has many of the facts wrong.
His wife didn't make the sniper fire claim "one time late at night when she was exhausted."...
It's also not true that she "immediately apologized for it."...
It's also not true that she was the "first first lady since Eleanor Roosevelt to go into a combat zone"...
The trip also was not in 1995, but 1996.

AP's "expose of falsehoods" is all nit-picking. Bill's an old man, he's going to mess up those little details, much like McCain forgets who's the president of Germany. The point is, Hillary flew into a dangerous place to personally oversee our military operations, which gave her foreign policy experience that Obama doesn't have.
