Howard Wolfson, in a conference call that’s still going on, just said Hillary Clinton misspoke in part of her account of her visit to Bosnia in 1996. Clinton had said she ran from the helicopter with her head down. (Fellow passengers included her daughter and the comedian Sinbad.) Photos, video footage and news accounts show her greeting a child at a welcoming ceremony.
“She misspoke about the exit from the plane,” said Wolfson.
The answer came during the question-and-answer portion of the call, whose main message is that it is the Obama campaign at this point that is relying on a strategy of character assassination. “This is now the Obama campaign’s primary message to the American people,” Wolfson said. “It is not a message designed to build him up but to tear Senator Clinton down.”
