Hillary told CNN, “I helped bring peace to Northern Ireland.”

Nobel Peace Prize winner and former First Minister of Lisnagarvey Province there, said her claim is “a wee bit silly.”

According to the Telegraph.co.uk., negotiators from the parties that helped broker the Good Friday Agreement in 1998 said she played no part in the grueling political talks over the years.

"I remember a meeting that I pulled together in Belfast, in the town hall there, bringing together for the first time Catholics and Protestants…sitting in a room where they had never been before with each other…because I really asked them to come that they were there,” says Mrs. Clinton.

There is no record of a meeting at Belfast City Hall, though Mrs. Clinton attended a ceremony there when her husband turned on the Christmas tree lights in November 1995.

The "Belfast Telegraph" reported the next day that the café meeting was crammed with reporters, cameramen and Secret Service agents. Conversation "seemed a little bit stilted, a little prepared at times" and Mrs. Clinton admired a stainless steel tea pot, which was duly given to her, for keeping the brew "so nice and hot".

Quite a different telling of events, don’t you think?

Reminds me of the story [Clinton confidant and advisor] Dick Morris tells about Hillary running into Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to scale Mount Everest, at an airport in Katmandu. She told him a fluffy story of how she was named after him. Problem is that Hillary was born five and a half years before Sir Edmund made the climb – when he was an unknown beekeeper in New Zealand.

Yeah, I’d trust her as my President!


Ps. What's the big shocker about Eliot Spitzer? He's been screwing Wall Street and the people of New York for years!
