This Picture of Hillary Clinton and A Soldier Has Caused Controversy For YEARS

By on Friday, November 13, 2015

Hillary Clinton made an extremely dubious claim on Tuesday which has stirred up some controversy.
Clinton claims that she attempted to join the Marines, and even accused them of sexism. This brings to mind a photo taken of a moment between Hillary and a soldier that may be the most unflattering moment ever caught on camera.
You can see the soldier crossing his fingers while shaking Clinton’s hand. This photo quickly went viral, making the rounds on websites and chain emails. Why is this a significant gesture? The Gateway Pundit explained:
This US soldier flashed the “coercion” sign with his left hand when he met Senator Clinton while serving in Iraq in 2003.

The picture shows that this soldier has been through Survival School and learned his lessons well. He’s giving the sign of “coercion” with his left hand. These hand signs are taught in survival school to be used by POW’s as a method of posing messages back to our intelligence services who may view the photo or video. This guy was obviously being coerced into shaking hands with Hillary Clinton.
Some people even went to the trouble to uncover the identity of this soldier. Though his name was withheld for security reasons, he issued a statement:
“The picture of me and Hillary Clinton was taken when she came to visit Iraq. I was actually ordered to shake her hand, and I never figured that my friends would circulate it all over the net. I AM NOT a Hillary fan by any stretch.”
Snopes even investigated the claim and determined it to be true:
The “not really all that pleased” assessment is evidently accurate — although the picture originally appeared without any accompanying text, and the “coercion” caption was only added later to make the humor of the photograph more explicit — as the soldier pictured with Senator Clinton (who asked that we not identify him by name) told us that he employed the gesture to indicate that he was not a fan of the senator’s and was not as appreciative of having the opportunity to meet (and pose with) her as it might otherwise appear.

Hillary Clinton has a history of exaggerating and outright lying where Military is involved, from dodging sniper fire to joining the Marines. Does she have the ability to tell the truth about anything?
