Way to go Bill!

April 12, 2008

Just when this story was dying down and slipping away, you drag it kicking and screaming right back to the front page!

Bill Clinton defends Bosnia remarks

On Thursday, the former president gave a passionate defense of his wife’s claim about “landing under sniper fire” — just as the damaging controversy was dying down.

Bill Clinton said the news media treated her like she had “robbed a bank” and claimed she was experiencing end-of-day fatigue, even though she had made the claim in morning speeches.

“Let me just tell you. The president of Bosnia and General Wesley Clark – who was there making peace where we’d lost three peacekeepers, who had to ride on a dangerous mountain road because it was too dangerous to go the regular, safe way — both defended her, because they pointed out that when her plane landed in Bosnia, she had to go up to the bulletproof part of the plane, in the front. Everybody else had to put their flak jackets underneath the seat in case they got shot at. And everywhere they went, they were covered by Apache helicopters. So they just abbreviated the arrival ceremony.

Really? So now you’re saying you knowingly sent your teenage (she was what… 15-16 years old at the time?) daughter into a situation which required being in the ‘bulletproof part of the plane’ keeping ‘flak jackets … in case they got shot at’ and being constantly ‘covered by Apache helicopters’? Brilliant. Going for that Father of the Year award were we?

He closes with:

And some of them, when they’re 60, they’ll forget something when they’re tired at 11 at night, too.

Which again makes me ask…. if she can’t get her stories right at 11pm, how the hell is she supposed to handle that 3am phone call?
