Is it true that Blinding Cloud doesn't affect Widow Mines?

If so, why wouldn't it? Are mines not counted as units or is this simply a bug?

Yes, the widow mine "attack" is in fact an ability. For the same reason you can storm out of a blinding cloud, a widow mine can "attack"

As Hugo mentions, the Widow Mine "attack" is an auto-cast ability.

I tested this in-game; Blinding Cloud will not save you from their husband-killing ways.
