First off, there was no sniper fire, and there was no panicked running to safety. Nor, in fact, was the ceremony moved inside due to the threat of sniper fire. The whole sniper fire thing is pretty much all imaginary. To put thing in perspective: the great American war-hero, Sinbad (that old stand-up comedian) described it as completely safe - yes, he was there at the ceremony. The corkscrew landing she described was also BS - apparently, they just landed faster than normal to minimize any potential threat of hostile fire. That was a standard precaution, though, and there was no known sniper (or other) fire.
Secondly, she wasn't the first high profile American to go into the country after the peace treaty. The list there includes Madeleine Albright, John Shalikashvili, Bill Perry, various members of Congress and President Clinton. Of course, if I recall correctly, she had specifically said that she went before her husband, so that's just complete BS.

For the record: I used to like Hilary Clinton. I no longer do. For all of Obama's faults, I think he stands head and shoulders above her in many ways, and right now, I hope she goes down in flames. She has managed, by hook and by crook (and by that of course I'm referring to her campaign staff) to single-handedly lower the standards of the Democratic primary race to the level of the Republican party. Thanks, Hil.

Talk about the media going easy on someone.
I hate politics in the U.S. On a good day, it's like taking a bath in sewage... and there are very few good days.
