Hillary Clinton's lie hits real sniper vics

Ouch.

From The Daily News:

Every time I see the video of Hillary Clinton talking about landing in Bosnia under sniper fire, I also see the shamrock scarf she wore to the podium in honor of St. Patrick's Day.

And then I think once again of the courageous 30-year-old Marine Capt. John McKenna of Brooklyn, born on St. Patrick's Day in 1976 and killed two years ago by a sniper in Iraq.

The same sniper had just shot another New York Marine, 28-year-old Lance Cpl. Michael Glover of Queens. Glover had been the point man in a patrol down a street in Fallujah. He had just reached an intersection when he was hit.

This is gonna hurt.

When I looked at the whole speech she delivered at George Washington University, I saw that she went directly from the Bosnia fantasy to the current situation in Iraq. She actually said, "The American people don't have to guess whether I'm ready to lead or whether I understand the realities on the ground."

In Bosnia, the reality was Clinton was greeted in total safety by an 8-year-old Muslim girl who read her a poem. The reality is the self-styled champion of children erased that moment in favor of a self-glorifying tale of being under fire.
