The bombing of Belgrade in Yugoslavia and the Monica Lewinsky scandal were said to have been interlinked as experts felt – that Bill Clinton started the bombing to divert attention from the Lewinsky scandal. This theory was earlier brought to life by a 1997 Hollywood movie ‘Wag the Dog’ starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro. At the time of production and before the movie’s release, Bill Clinton was also involved in a threatened military action against Iraq.
