(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."

She is still more qualified to be commander in chief
Hmm.. A Clinton caught in a lie... How unusual. There is no way this was anything but. Who can't remember the truth about landing in gunfire and running to safety?
We should be surprised by this! This is the Clintons, after all. Truth has a different definition to them.
I find it very interesting that there are over 200 posts commenting on Sen. Obama's family trip to St. Thomas and not one Sen. Clinton supporter commenting or justifying her "minor blip" regarding her trip to Bosnia as a first lady.
She is dellusional!!
Hillary did not misspoke she flat out lied. Watch the footage she said at the end "and that is exactly what happened" That is not exactly what happened, she lied!
She needs to just admit that she lied and apologise, plain and simple!
Distortions in the truth from HRC... no?!!! From Macedonia to Bosnia, her "fish" stories have gotten bigger over time.
C'mon Sr. Clinton, do us all a favor and bow out gracefully. This is getting past the point of ridiculous!
Obama sends his own children to church to learn about HATE
This is disappointing.
Well I guess that depends on what the definition of "was sniper fire" is.
hillary clinton is not presidencial material. if she misspeaks about sniper fire what else did she adlib about in this race. SHE CANNOT BE TRUSTED FOLKS SHE HAD A VERY GOOD TEACHER OLD "CAN,T KEEP HIS PANTS ZIPPED BILL CLINTON"
Seems kind of odd that comments are not being posted on this story but they were on anything about Rev. Wright and Obama's mini vacation.
How does one misspeak about "sniper fire"? Yup, she arrived under sniper fire and she had to run with her head down but yet a little girl had time to read her a lovely poem. She obviously lied and she should use whatever integrity she has left to step out of the race.
I saw the speech she was giving and basically she lied! There is no way she can twist what she said. Hillary Clinton has been stretching the truth and out right lying about her experience this entire time. She is campaigning on experience that she doesn’t have and misleading everyone.
I didn't have sex with that women! This Clinton thing has a ring to it! Go to youtube and watch the video Hillary doesn't want you to see, "Peter Paul"! Then go to MSNBC to see the real news, Fox and CNN are bais, and two weeks behind in their stories.
I dare CNN not block this out!
how about the claim of bringing peace in ireland? a nobel laureate who participated in the process laughed when he heard hillary's claim about her role on that issue.
i see a pattern of minor blips, and not one...
LIAR LIAR LIAR!!! YOU LIED ON YOUR JOB INTERVIEW SO YOU ARE NOT GETTING THE JOB!!! Nice try!
Liar Liar pants on fire :)
no she LIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What do you expect from a Clinton?????
all she does is lie to the people and they fall for it. hillary support wake up and smell the Obama.
Why can't you just say the words *******she was lying*********** ***************************
I think Clintons 35 years of experience is about as honest as this make believe story that she hatched up for the election. She and Bill are a match made in "heaven". " I did not have sex with that women"............. What is amazing is that there are so many people in Pennsylvania that are buying her BS stories and going to vote for her in the primary.
Look at a youtube video Obama goes to Africa He went there to a crown of Muslims.
...hey, seemed like a good lie at the time. oops. you mean there's video footage that unquestioningly makes my statement a lie. oh yeah... i "mispoke" sorry.
Here it is... the beginning of the Clinton damage control! Hillary will have a lot more explaining to do after people scrutinize her first-lady experience claims!
