You can imagine the conversation within the communication team, Hilary Clinton as a woman cannot claim battle as her Republican rival so they needed to invent a little action. So they thought they would exaggerate a little, rather than gunshots in the hills nearby she landed in Bosnia under sniper fire and so the story escalates. If it were a celebrity no-one would care, a business leader enhancing his or her CV well who would check, but a presidential candidate; whoever thought up that idea must have been out of their tiny mind. If the voters do not believe she "misspoke" and that she lied then it will undermine all credibility in her at a time when she has to out-honest Obama. Whoops!!
