Hillary Clinton Under Sniper Fire

22 March 2008

This is how Hillary Clinton described her 1996 trip to Bosnia:

I certainly do remember that trip to Bosnia, and as Togo said, there was a saying around the White House that if a place was too small, too poor, or too dangerous, the president couldn't go, so send the First Lady. That’s where we went. 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.

Below is the shocking footage of Sen. Clinton in a mad dash from her airplane, under heavy sniper fire from Bosnian super-soldiers.

: Sinbad himself remembers that fateful day in Tuzla: "I think the only 'red-phone' moment was: 'Do we eat here or at the next place.' "
