“Pants on Fire”

PolitiFact, a joint venture between CQ and the St. Petersburg Times, declares Hillary Clinton’s pants (pants-suit?) on fire for her Bosnia story:

There’s no doubt flying into Bosnia was dangerous back in 1996, but the threat of sniper fire is not the same as actual sniper fire, and hustling off the tarmac is not the same as running with your head down. Yes, Clinton later acknowledged that she was mistaken, but it’s hard to understand how she could err on something so significant as whether she did or didn’t dodge sniper bullets. Quite simply, this kind of hyperbole deserves our harshest assessment. We rule Pants on Fire.
