Hillary's experience

As an example of her extensive foreign policy experience, Hillary Clinton talked about how she came under sniper fire when she visited Bosnia. The press then pulled up old video of the trip and demonstrated that it just wasn't so. Today Hillary admitted her "mistake" and said it just showed she was human.

A caller to a talk radio show begged to differ with Ms. Clinton today. He said he was in the military and had been under fire. He said that if Ms. Clinton had really been shot at, there is no way in the world that she would have forgotten about it. He said there was no question in his mind that she was lying and that her lie brought discredit the the men and women of the Secret Service who protected her.

A politician lying? Please, tell me it isn't so! Aside from the possible lying issue, the real problem seems to be that the more Hillary's extensive foreign policy experience is examined, like chasing a rainbow, the more elusive it becomes.
