Embellishment

ph2008032002697.jpg

With an assist from the Washington Post, I present a quote from a speech that Hillary Clinton gave this past Monday:

“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.”

That piciture above would, in fact, be the greeting ceremony she had to skip.  Aside from the photo verification, the Post points out that there wasn’t a single article written about the First Lady coming under sniper fire at the time.  That’s generally something the media covers, First Lady’s taking fire.

When does it cease to be embellishment and become flat out lying?
