Hillary to Bill: Be Quiet, Dear:

“Former President Clinton has added to the falsehoods surrounding his wife’s tale of her trip to Bosnia 12 years ago.

In Indiana on Thursday, Bill Clinton defended his wife’s mistake in claiming that she landed under sniper fire in Bosnia, accusing the media of treating her like “she’d robbed a bank” for confusing the facts.

Clinton campaign spokesman Phil Singer responded to the former president’s remarks Friday by saying, “Senator Clinton appreciates her husband standing up for her, but this was her mistake and she takes responsibility for it.”

She’s also told her husband to quit talking about it.

“Hillary called me and said ‘You don’t remember this. You weren’t there, let me handle it.’ I said, ‘Yes ma’am,'” Bill Clinton, who was in Indiana campaigning for his wife Friday, told reporters.”

The linked article details Bill’s spin and the facts. Click on Patterico’s contemporaneous post here for a refresher on how Bill Clinton spins, and leave your comments there.
