It is well-known that Americans are disgusted by those who lie about service to their country, but there is a particular contempt for claims of bravery under fire, just as it is a given that real heroes will always sniff out an imposter bragging about false feats of valor.

That is exactly what has happened to former Secretary of State and Democratic candidate for the presidency Hillary Clinton as a video recorded by former NAVY Seal Dom Raso has gone viral bringing her lies about “dodging sniper fire” in Bosnia to the fore in the all-important primary months leading up to the Democratic convention in July.

It was during the 2008 primary season when then-Senator Hillary Clinton, battling the relatively unknown Senator Barack Obama for the nomination, blatantly lied in an attempt to impress voters and win their votes.

“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. But it was a moment of great pride for me.”

Apparently feeling that the fiction was insufficient, or possibly having deluded herself into believing the fantasy, Clinton went on to claim that she was regularly deployed into such situations by the White House into such situations, “if a place was too small, too poor, or too dangerous, the president couldn’t go, so send the First Lady.”

One week later, after numerous video clips aired showing Clinton arriving to a warm welcome on the tarmac at Tuzla, Bosnia, receiving a bouquet of flowers from a little girl rather than sniper fire, Clinton told reporters brusquely, “So I made a mistake. That happens. It proves I’m human.”

Raso called Clinton out as an “ignorant liar” who tried “to use the heroism of our nation’s armed forces to promote herself as the next commander-in-chief,” but it was the offhanded way Clinton dismissed the sacrifice service members make as they face actual life and death danger every day that outraged Raso.

“Only someone completely arrogant, ignorant and disrespectful of what really happens in war could say something like that — and all to get people to like you more.”
