In order to juice up her story about visiting Bosnia in 1996 Hillary said she was under sniper fire at the airport and that she had to be whisked away to a firebase for her protection. She is trying to portray herself as a first lady that has been under fire and in the trenches so to speak. Perhaps, the best story to tell is a scenario that you can convey that illustrates your toughness and that your a fearless leader in the heat of battle. Unfortunately, the whole story is a fabrication Hillary Clinton was not under direct fire at the airport and neither were her companions . They were met on the tarmac by a little girl representative and other local leaders before going on a dog and pony show of the military base there in Bosnia.
