(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."

At least she didn't attend a racial, anti American church for 20 year's.
The whole congregation should have been deported, end of story.
She did it and admitted she misspoke, get over it.
Its nice she can admitt when she was wrong. Obama dosen't know how to do that? He is still making his Pastor out to be a Saint!!
All politicians misspeak. What is the difference between misspeaking and lying? This was a calculated fabrication for political gain. Integrity at some point becomes essential to getting my vote. Clinton does not have any integrity.
And is it just me, or does the little girl in the video look like Bill Clinton??? Things that make go, "hmmmmmmmmmmmm..."
This happened 12 years ago and CNN is still fixated on it.
FYI ...politicans misspeak and exaggerate everyday. I can cite you example after example if you like.
Tell me. What do one expect form a Clinton? Does anyone remember "I did not have sexual relations with that woman". this is what they do. They lie. If you vote a Clinton in that is what you will get and that is a liar.
So how many more lies has she told? The sad part is she didn't realize how silly it sounded the President would send his wife and daughter into a dangerous situation. But lets not forget the lie about she didn't support NAFTA, who really contacted the Canadians, and numerous other lies. But we get the government we elect.
Between this incident and the Good Friday Peace Accord in which Nobel Laurette Lord Trimble described her touted role in it as, "a wee bit silly", I think Hillary Clinton needs to resubmit her Commander-in-Chief test for a regrade – and not to Professor Mark Penn.
It was wrong what she did.. i.e. lied... but at least she admitted she misspoke... unlike the current administration... her lying did not kill 4000 Americans and put us in a whole for billions of dollars... yes it was wrong... and everyone does wrong things... but by comparison of the above, which is worse?
Misspoke are you kidding stupid CNN she can spin you to what ever way she wants. You think people are stupid enough to fall fall this. She is a lier and everyone knows it. Her trust worthness in the american people will rise for the current 53% to 100% very soon.
Well, well, well, now we know. Hillary has been lying through her whole campaigning to get where she's at. Now, can America really trust this woman as our president. I don't think so. Doesn't the Clintons know that honesty is the best policy, good or bad.
I agree, Hillary owes the United States an apology as well as the people of Ohio. They were mislead badly based on the NAFTA scandal.
Obama 08, 2012!!!!!!!
depends on the meaning of "sniper fire" is. If by sniper you mean 8 year old girl with poem... then yes.
Hillary Clinton knew exactly what she was saying (SO MUCH FOR EXPERIENCE); and, as far as, McCain's error, he didn't have a clue what he was talking about.
What else is new ? Next thing we'll know is that she is also fighting in Iraq on her spare time ? Give us a break Clinton, drop out of this campaign !
Yeah real minor, like the fact you haven't ran a positive campaign or proven you have any experience.
Hillary says ... QUOTE: "I say a lot of things - millions of words a day - so if I misspoke, that was just a misstatement,"
OOPS ! She misspoke again!
Millions of words per day ???? People say about 3 words per second when they talk. If she spoke non-stop for 1 day (24 hours) she would only use 259,200 words. That's non-stop, 24 hours. Studys show that a woman speaks around 20,000 words per day. Can this woman ever stop stretching the truth ?????
Misspoke? How about just outright lying. Give it up lady, your "experience" platform has buckled and you've fallen flat on your face.
Correction she is not trusted by 53% of the american people now it will rise to 100% very soon
I find it pathetic that she has the hubris to lie so easily, that her attempt to discredit Sinbad's honesty came so easily and naturally to her, and that she thinks we are all stupid. Her arrogance is simply laughable.
We would generally call that, 'lying,' but when you say a million words a day (since talk is the only cheap thing left) I guess you have to start making things up to meet your quotas.
To knowingly misspeak = to deceive or lie
I love the way standard politics can manipulate words to save their hides.
MISSPOKE?!? ARE YOU SERIOUS?
"I remember snipers shooting at us and having to run from the plane" YOU MEAN YOU LIED!
She has a credibility problem. She will do and say anything to win.
Hillary is a pathological LIAR
Please post the video as you did Obama's pastor. Let it be fair
