Joe Biden: Oh, I Forgot to Mention, My Plane Was Fired on By Snipers in Bosnia

Jaw-dropping.

Mr. Biden has also been engaged on the Balkan issue since the early 1990s, when he was an outspoken advocate of the Bosnian cause. During his speech, Mr. Biden recalled his trip to the country in 1993, and how, flying in at the time, his plane was fired upon, and bombed-out homes with snipers inside could be seen.

Allah puckishly claims to believe him, reasoning that one of these days he must actually be telling the truth -- law of large numbers and all -- and adds, as additional evidence of his veracity--

Geraghty cant find any evidence that hes mentioned this before, but I think thats just Biden being his typically modest self. Does he strike you as the type of guy whod boast about a heroic brush with danger in a war zone?

I agree with the Twitterist -- it's a two-fer, both a lie and plagiarism, ripping off Hillary Clinton's own harrowing Terror at Tuzla Tale of Two-Fisted Action.

Oh Damn: Gabe, who was a bear of a poster during my unscheduled mental health day, already covered this.

Oh well.

It's worth a second mention.

Terror at Two Thousand Feet: Biden's last action-packed roller-coaster ride of a tale.
