Hillary 'sniper' story Sinbad

Hillary has been trotting out a story to burnish her foreign affairs credentials, recounting how she landed under sniper fire in Bosnia and was forced to run from the plane. The tale was supposed to illustrate "a harrowing international experience that makes her tested and ready to answer a 3 a.m. phone call at the White House."

Not so fast, says David Adkins, better known as Sinbad. Turns out he was on the same place, along with Sheryl Crow. In an interview with the Washington Post, he said the "scariest" part of the trip was wondering where he'd eat next.

"I think the only 'red-phone' moment was: 'Do we eat here or at the next place," he said.

Unless the U.S. military was attempting to get rid of two C-List celebrities, it seems unlikely they would have sent Sinbad and Sheryl -- let alone the First Lady -- into harm's way.
