First annual SkyIslandScriber treasure hunt: How many Fiorina Fibs can you find?

Google "Carly Fiorina" and find easily disprovable assertions she made during the GOP primary campaign. Find as many as you can. For each Fiorina Fib quote her and provide an authoritative source disproving her Fib. Retractions don't count - only send in those assertions she repeats or stands behind.

Each contestant will receive a recycling audio tape of Fiorina's erroneous pronouncements.

Here is a Fiorina Fib from Daily Kos.

Carly Fiorina continues to set the gold standard in brazenly sticking to your own highly specific, easily disproven lies. In Tuesday night’s GOP presidential debate, Fiorina said that she would “bring back the warrior class—Petraeus, McChrystal, Mattis, Keane, Flynn. Every single one of these generals I know. Every one was retired early because they told President Obama things that he didn’t want to hear.” Petraeus and McChrystal have their own issues, but Keane is really special. Because Gen. Jack Keane, you see, retired in 2003.

Funny story: On Wednesday, Keane said, “I have never spoken to the president. That's not accurate, and I never served this administration. I served the previous administration.” And again, 2003. It's not like the guy saw that Obama had won the election and retired between the 2008 election and the 2009 inauguration. He retired having, in all likelihood, never heard of Barack Obama, who hadn’t even been elected to the Senate in 2003.
