Sen. Hillary Clinton is brushing aside comments made earlier this month by comedian Sinbad, who claimed that their 1996 trip to Bosnia was not as violent as she described in two separate occasions on the campaign trail.See Also:
As previously reported, the Democratic presidential candidate was attempting to show up fellow candidate Barack Obama on foreign policy by talking about her "harrowing" trip to the war torn country, stating she "landed under sniper fire" and had to duck-and-run toward waiting vehicles.
Sinbad, who was also on the trip, told Washington Post blog The Sleuth that sniper fire was never an issue when the plane landed, and there was no mad dash to vehicles while under duress. When told of Sinbad's differing account of the trip, Clinton's four-word response was: "Sinbad is a comedian."
"I made my statement, and she made hers," Sinbad wrote to the Sleuth this week in an email. Refusing to comment any further, Sinbad did suggest that he finds the entire exchange amusing. "Ha ha! This has taken on a life of its own," he wrote.
Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal chimed in with details of Clinton's personal schedule detailing the Bosnia trip. The itinerary, which the Clinton campaign released along with scores of other records from the Clinton White House last week, had "no mention of security threats" regarding the trip.
Sinbad, an Obama supporter, feels Clinton should be more concerned with her poll numbers following the Illinois senator's speech on race relations.
"After Barack's last speech, Bosnia is the least of her problems," Sinbad said.
