Let us never forget that this sworn perjuror never missed an opportunity to brazenly lie.

The death toll has been revised downward because they found the Muslims were counting the same people several times and including some of the same people as both civilian deaths and soldier deaths if they died in battle.

Norwegian researchers, hired by the ICTY, found overcounting.

For instance a Muslim who left his home town to join the Bosnian Muslim army and was transferred or lived in different places during the war years, would be counted if he eventually died, as a civilian in each of the places he lived and was registered. So you had some people counted in triplicate or even more.

Yes: 100,000 victims (implied DEAD) was the most “typical” mainstream media exaggeration of the pre-war propaganda, but (at best) the 100,000 was those displaced by combat. But IMPLIED (and sometimes directly stated!) was 100,000 murdered victims.

Here, that got increased to a quarter million. With even more propaganda from the press - who WANTED that war!

That was clinton speak:

"Let us never forget a quarter of a million men, women and children have been shelled, shot and tortured to death. 10 tortured to death, 20 shot, and 249,970 personally heard, or knew someone who had heard, an artillary shell explode and it scared them.
