Huma Abedin’s Muslim Journal Claimed Bill Clinton Bombed Saddam to Distract From the Monica Lewinsky Scandal

An article published in the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs claimed Bill Clinton ordered the bombing of Iraq in December 1998 in order to draw attention away from the Monica Lewinsky scandal:

He ordered four days of strikes by bombers and cruise missiles at the height of his impeachment trial, brought in the wake of his admission that he had had a ‘not appropriate’ relationship with Monica Lewinsky.

The strikes — known as Operation Desert Fox — were ordered the day after the House of Representatives issued a report accusing the president of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ and ended on the day the articles of impeachment were passed.

And at the time — get this — Huma Abedin was on the editorial board that decided to publish the article.
