Jim Bovard exposes the false claim that Bill Clinton presided over a peaceful administration, pointing out the horrible atrocities of the “humanitarian” intervention in Kosovo. Clinton launched this intervention, says Bovard, as a distraction from his personal scandals, under the dubious guise of saving the ethnic minority Albanians from genocide at the hands of the Serbians. Of course, as with many of America’s wars, this one turned out to be based on lies; ultimately hundreds, if not thousands, of civilians were killed because of U.S. intervention. Scott and Bovard also discuss the U.S. military’s war crimes during the Korean War.
