The CIA study found that the Serbs were responsible for most of the “ethnic cleansing” in Bosnia. While Croatian and Muslims had committed crimes, they “lacked the sustained intensity, orchestration, and scale of the Bosnian Serb’s efforts.”

It is estimated that the Serbs were responsible for 90% of the atrocities there.  Bill Clinton, as part of the effort to avoid US involvement, was convincing in claiming that atrocities were committed equally on both sides.
