Gingrich Sets Up Bosnia Arms Probe

THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 1996

House Speaker Newt Gingrich established a special panel Wednesday to investigate the Clinton administration’s role in allowing Iranian arms to flow to Bosnia.

Asserting that President Clinton might have helped Iran gain a foothold in Europe, Gingrich set up an eight-member panel - five Republicans, three Democrats - to examine the 1994 arms shipments that went through despite an international arms embargo.

The investigation, a slap at Clinton on foreign policy grounds, would be completed after Labor Day during the final stretch of the presidential campaign.
