Scott talks to Jim Bovard about Bill Clinton’s bombing campaign in Serbia twenty years ago, which at the time was widely heralded as a triumph of the “forces of good.” It was also, apparently, something that Bill Clinton did as a way to appease Hillary after the fallout from the Monica Lewinsky scandal. The entire narrative of “ethnic cleansing” that was put forth as justification for American intervention turned out later to have been overblown, with, in actual fact, casualties (and some atrocities) on both sides of the civil war but little evidence for the purported one-sided genocide.
Discussed on the show:
- “America’s Benevolent Bombing of Serbia” (Future of Freedom Foundation)
- Hillary’s Choice
- “Hillary Clinton-Style Social-Worker Liberalism Has Some Dark Areas” (LA Times)
- Rambouillet Agreement
