Remember Hillary's whopper about landing under sniper fire in Bosnia?

Not to be outdone, Joe Biden is now talking about his helicopter being "forced down" in the mountains of Afghanistan, referencing Al Qaeda in the same breath. 

The only problem?  As Jake Tapper points out, Biden's helicopter was "forced down" by a snowstorm, and he and the rest of the group zipped back to base via motorcade and then zipped off to Turkey.
