White House documents reveal that Hillary Clinton lied to voters about her opposition to a trade pact blamed in industrial states for killing jobs, Barack Obama's campaign said Thursday.
Obama aides said the schedules undermined the New York senator's most contentious claims of foreign policy experience.
They highlighted an ABC News report which cited participants at one White House meeting in 1993 as saying Clinton was "fully supportive" of NAFTA.
"It does make you wonder if this was one of the reasons [the NAFTA report] why there was such a reluctance to get those records out there on a timely basis," Obama strategist David Axelrod said on a conference call.
Before the March 4 primary in Ohio, Clinton had savaged the Obama campaign for its alleged inconsistency on NAFTA and asserted her own opposition to the pact, which her husband Bill had fought hard to get through Congress.
"There was only one problem: she wasn't telling the truth to Ohio voters," Axelrod said.
"It is no secret that passing NAFTA was a priority of the Clinton administration, but numerous contemporary accounts make clear that Hillary Clinton was personally opposed to NAFTA, and her position on NAFTA was and remains consistent," it said.

I have not seen corruption run quite as deep in Obama, although he is no saint.
