(CNN) - Sen. Hillary Clinton said she "misspoke" last week when she gave a dramatic description of her arrival in Bosnia 12 years ago, recounting a landing under sniper fire.
Clinton was responding to a question Monday from the Philadelphia Daily News' editorial board about video footage of the event that contradicted her assertion that her group "ran with our heads down" from the plane to avoid sniper fire at the Tuzla Air Base, Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for rival Sen. Barack Obama's campaign, said the Bosnia claim was part of "a growing list of instances in which Sen. Clinton has exaggerated her role in foreign and domestic policymaking."
Clinton told the paper's editorial board it was a "minor blip."

Yeah, so what? at least she doesnt support a far right leftist.
Is the best we could come up with?
Misspoke? Clintonese for out right lie! Misspeaking about her role in Nafta got her Ohio. etc. etc. When are the super-duper delegates going to step in and put an end to the Clinton charade?
That's an interesting word for it. Must be a lawyer thing.
"we were pinned down and bombs were exploding everywhere, thank God i had the presence of mind to keep firing that 50. cal!"
Hard to remember everything that happenned 12 years ago. Kind of Like Obama FORGETTING that he was in church when Wright was bashing America. Selective memory perhaps.
Hillary Clinton for President
why all the negative stories about Hillary on CNN and all you see about Obama – is him laying out at the beach.... a little bias?
What's worse, mildly misspeaking about a plane ride, or lying about being present when a pastor makes racist and anti-American comments? This isn't newsworthy.
Sure she misspoke! This was obviously another fabrication of her "experience." I'm so glad that she was called out on this one. It's a shame that it won't get nearly as much play as Jeremiah Wright. After all, it's just another LIE from the Clintons. Stay tuned....many more to come.
This is not news we care about. Where are the issues????
Sen. Clinton addressed this matter...she said what she was told on that day landing in Bosnia. End of story. She never said people were shooting at her. She said the airport was under sniper fire. How do we know....we weren't there! Knowing Bosnia's violence level, it probably was under fire.
Everything negative that comes out about Obama is said by someone else and he has to take the blame for it... Everything about Clinton is something she's said or done herself... Go figure...
Looks like a lot of intense sniper fire going on!!! Lies. lies and more lies.!!That is what you get with the Clintons' If you like this go ahead and vote for Hillary!!
"It's just WORDS! I say MILLIONS of words EVERY SINGLE DAY! Words words words! You know my position on WORDS. They don't MATTER!
This will bring up the question as to how many other times she misspoke about past events. She will hear this should she make it to the general election against McCain. I suspect that might come up during another debate which might happen in Philadelphia.
If you "mis-spoke" about whether or not you ducked sniper fire it is a "minor blip". Yet it is a major travesty of justice if you take your wife and daughters on a brief 3 day getaway over the weekend? I am officially THROUGH with politics. Done.
Clinton and McCain "Misspeak" all the time it seems like!!!
I dont want a LIAR for a president!!
As Hillarry said, words mean something!
Liar Liar Pants on Fire
Bilary Go Away
Actually, the headline of this blog should read "Hillary Clinton is caught in yet another lie".
As the old saying goes, a liar has to have a very good memory.
Evidently Hillary forgot that the cameras were rolling during her trip to Bosnia 12 years ago.
Clinton lied. What a shock.
Mispoke = Resume padding = Lies . 8 years as First lady does not equal experience Hillary. Laura Bush would be a super president in the next election cycle then.
How could you “misspeak” about that? She spoke with such conviction about the events of the trip during her speech…now she makes it sound as if it was a slip of the tongue!!! BOLOGNE!!!
What a joke. I'm sure that she has done a number of good things for people, but "misspoken" recollections about things like this make everthing she says questionable. She is far less trustworthy than either of the other candidates.
She didnt misspeak... she LIED.
It wasnt an "exaggeration", it was FABRICATION.
Much like her ENTIRE CAMPAIGN of FAKE "experience"
VOTE OBAMA 2008!
She calls it "mispoke", everyone else calls it a lie. She is using typical Clinton strategy, lie and hope you don't get caught!
