Hillary Clinton is now backpedalling a bit on that speech she gave last week. It seems the second paragraph, which begins:

I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.

…wasn’t entirely true.

"I misspoke," said Ms. Clinton, by which she surely meant, "It sounded dramatic, and I thought I’d get away with it. I’m sorry I got caught. Please vote for me anyway, because I want to be President."

(Didn’t Joe Biden torpedo his presidential campaign with a similar "mistake", back in 1988?)
