THE BULLET MRS. CLINTON WAS REALLY DODGING
Over at Slate.com the perennially pissed (and I mean that in a nice way) Christopher Hitchens unloads one of his typically vein-popping demolition-jobs on Hillary Clinton, to the effect that
(a) not only did she lie shamelessly about being in danger while at least 4,000 American soldiers were protecting her worthless hide when she landed in Bosnia, BUT
(b) she also had a hand in throwing untold thousands of Bosnian Muslims under the Ethnic Cleansing bus when she leaned on Bill to waffle on his previous commitment to defend them, because it would distract from her brilliant national health-care initiative. Money quote:
The key factor in Bill's policy reversal was Hillary, who was said to have "deep misgivings" and viewed the situation as "a Vietnam that would compromise health-care reform." The United States took no further action in Bosnia, and the "ethnic cleansing" by the Serbs was to continue for four more years, resulting in the deaths of more than 250,000 people.
