Being a politician has gotten tougher now that YouTube is here to set the record straight. That's what Hillary Clinton has discovered with several video clips of her 1996 Bosnia trip finding their way onto YouTube.
Clinton's recollection of her Bosnia trip is: "I remember landing under sniper fire. There was no greeting ceremony, and we basically were told to run to our cars. Now that is what happened."
Unfortunately, news clips of her Tuzla trip (scroll down) show something completely different. Hillary is accompanied by her daughter, Chelsea, as she steps off the plane and is greeted by an 8-year-old girl, Emina Bicakcic, who reads a poem to her. No running. No sniper fire.
