Lying Comes Naturally To The Clintons

Christopher Hitchens has an interesting story in Slade that argues that Hillary Clinton misspeak about her war torn trip to Bosina may be the lesser of more serious lies about her role in Bosnia. The story focuses on her role at that time in arguing against US military intervention to end ethnic cleansing of Bosnian Muslims. Hitchens points out that Hillary feared it would divert attention from her efforts to get her health plan enacted in 1992. In the end her efforts to get a national health plan failed anyway while an estimated 250, 000 Bosnian Muslims were cleansed in the Balkans.

In other news Clinton does her best impersonation of a deadbeat employer by failing to pay the health insurance premiums for her campaign workers or pay the bills. This must be heartening news to her labor union supporters. If you can’t run your campaign properly why would you believe she run the country any better?
