Kosovo Ignores Call to Enforce Monastery’s Land Claim

Authorities in Pristina have remained silent after the EU called for enforcement of a court ruling that upheld a Serbian Orthodox monastery’s claim to disputed land, angering some Kosovo Albanians.

The Kosovo government has declined to respond to an appeal from the EU office in Pristina to enforce a ruling of the country’s Constitutional Court on a land dispute case involving the Serbian Orthodox monastery at Decan/Decani in western Kosovo.

The judgment issued in May 2016 said the land in the dispute belonged to the monastery and not to two private companies.

The office of Prime Minister Isa Mustafa did not respond to a BIRN query about the EU call.

But sources close to the prime minister’s office told BIRN on condition of anonymity that the government plans to ignore the ruling, which is unpopular among Kosovo Albanians.

On Thursday, the EU office expressed concern over the “continued lack of implementation of this ruling” and condemned “any actions to block access to or otherwise disrupt life at the Visoki Decani monastery”.

“The EU calls on authorities at all levels to demonstrate respect for the rule of law as a fundamental democratic principle. Full implementation of the ruling should take place without delay,” it said.

The mayor of the Decan/Decani municipality, Rasim Selmanaj, which contests the Serbian Orthodox Church’s right to the land, said that while the rule of law must be respected, the municipality had no intention of honouring “influential and illegal decisions.

“We remain ready for good relations with the monastery, but not for giving away properties that stifle the economic development of Decan,” Selmanaj said.

The League of Kosovo Historians’ office in Decan/Decani also condemned the statement by the EU office, saying that decisions about land made in the era of Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic from 1989 to 1999 were “unenforceable in our country”.

The land was the focus of demonstrations in 2012 after the Supreme Court ruled that the disputed 24 hectares belonged to the monastery and not to two Kosovo companies, which have claimed it ever since the Kosovo war ended in 1999.

After 16 years of litigation, the Constitutional Court in May last year confirmed the monastery’s right to the 24 hectares, equal to 59 acres.

The ruling by the Constitutional Court sparked protests by Kosovo Albanians, some of them holding up banners reading: “The Constitutional Court Trespassed on Justice.”

Former Dyncorp VP Charged With Rape Of A Minor

Published: April 17, 2017

On Friday, April 14th, the Military District of Washington announced that General James Grazioplene (Ret.) was being charged with six specifications of rape of a minor on multiple occasions between 1983 and 1989. The Army said that the investigation remains open.

There were no further details released about the case and it is unclear why the charges are only now being brought against Mr. Grazioplene. NY Daily News reported that Grazioplene retired in 2005 after serving as the director of force development in the Pentagon’s Joint Warfighting Capabilities Assessment. Grazioplene’s Linkedin page revealed that he served as the Vice President of Dyncorp from 2012 to 2015. He also acted as the CEO for Mission Readiness LLC, a joint venture run by private military groups DynCorp International, Force Protection Industries, Oshkosh Defense and McLane Advanced Technologies which worked to provide U.S. and Coalition forces with vehicle maintenance in Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait.

The conviction of their former Vice President is the latest in a string of sexual misconduct cases that have plagued Dyncorp over the years. Disobedient Media has previously highlighted a number of these incidents, including scandals in Afghanistan and the Balkans, where Dyncorp employees actively facilitated abuse of minors and even worked with organized crime groups to engage in human trafficking.

UNO beendet inmitten von Kritik Blauhelmmission Minustah in Haiti

Der Sicherheitsrat der Vereinten Nationen hat die in Haiti und international massiv kritisierte Blauhelmmission Minustah für beendet erklärt. Der Einsatz in Haiti soll nach 13 Jahren und zahlreichen Skandalen eingestellt werden. Während die UNO eine positive Bilanz zieht, kritisieren soziale Organisationen und Menschenrechtsgruppen die Arbeit der Blauhelme. Sie weisen zugleich eine Folgemission von Polizeikräften zurück. Die Minustah hatte in den vergangenen Jahren immer wieder für Proteste gesorgt, weil sie als Besatzungsmacht nach dem Putsch gegen Präsident Jean-Bertrand Aristide im Jahr 2004 gesehen wurde.

EU Mafia: EU approves 100 million in assistance for Moldova

On 12 April 2017, EU ambassadors agreed the Council’s negotiating position on a macro-financial assistance for the Republic of Moldova.

Up to €100 million is proposed in EU assistance, of which €60 million in loans and €40 million in the form of grants. It would supplement resources provided by the IMF and other multilateral institutions.

The assistance would be aimed at supporting the country’s economic stabilisation and structural reform agenda, helping to cover its external financing needs over the coming two years.

Ambassadors asked the presidency to start talks on the proposed decision with the European Parliament, as soon as the Parliament has agreed its own stance.

The Republic of Moldova’s economy was affected by political instability during the period between elections in November 2014 and January 2016. It has also been affected by a banking fraud scandal, weak economic activity and import bans imposed by Russia. Since early 2016, the authorities have adopted a number of reforms, but need to undertake further efforts in implementing them, whilst those responsible for banking frauds need to be brought to justice. Reforms in the financial sector and in the management of public finances have been undertaken in the framework of negotiations on an IMF programme.

In July 2016 the Moldovan authorities and the IMF agreed a three-year extended credit facility and extended fund facility arrangement for $178.7 million. The Republic of Moldova requested complementary assistance from the EU in August 2015 and renewed that request in March 2016.

The EU assistance would be subject to a memorandum of understanding (MOU), including precise and specific conditions, to be agreed by the Republic of Moldova with the Commission.

A precondition would be that the Republic of Moldova respects effective democratic mechanisms, including a multi-party parliamentary system. It would have to respect the rule of law and guarantee respect for human rights. Objectives also include the efficiency, transparency and accountability of public finance management, an effective prevention of corruption and money laundering, and financial sector governance and supervision.

Clinton-Approved Iranian Arms Transfers Help Turn Bosnia into Militant Islamic Base

„‚There is no question that the policy of getting arms into Bosnia was of great assistance in allowing the Iranians to dig in and create good relations with the Bosnian government,‘ a senior CIA officer told Congress in a classified deposition. ‚And it is a thing we will live to regret because when they blow up some Americans, as they no doubt will before this . . . thing is over, it will be in part because the Iranians were able to have the time and contacts to establish themselves well in Bosnia.'“ [„Iran Gave Bosnia Leader $500,000, CIA Alleges: Classified Report Says Izetbegovic Has Been ‚Co-Opted,‘ Contradicting U.S. Public Assertion of Rift,“ Los Angeles Times, 12/31/96. Ellipses in original. Alija Izetbegovic is the Muslim president of Bosnia.]

„‚If you read President Izetbegovic’s writings, as I have, there is no doubt that he is an Islamic fundamentalist,‘ said a senior Western diplomat with long experience in the region. ‚He is a very nice fundamentalist, but he is still a fundamentalist. This has not changed. His goal is to establish a Muslim state in Bosnia, and the Serbs and Croats understand this better than the rest of us.'“ [„Bosnian Leader Hails Islam at Election Rallies,“ New York Times, 9/2/96]

Introduction and Summary

In late 1995, President Bill Clinton dispatched some 20,000 U.S. troops to Bosnia-Hercegovina as part of a NATO-led „implementation force“ (IFOR) to ensure that the warring Muslim, Serbian, and Croatian factions complied with provisions of the Dayton peace plan. [NOTE: This paper assumes the reader is acquainted with the basic facts of the Bosnian war leading to the IFOR deployment. For background, see RPC’s „Clinton Administration Ready to Send U.S. Troops to Bosnia, „9/28/95,“ and Legislative Notice No. 60, „Senate to Consider Several Resolutions on Bosnia,“ 12/12/95] Through statements by Administration spokesmen, notably Defense Secretary Perry and Joint Chiefs Chairman General Shalikashvili, the president firmly assured Congress and the American people that U.S. personnel would be out of Bosnia at the end of one year. Predictably, as soon as the November 1996 election was safely behind him, President Clinton announced that approximately 8,500 U.S. troops would be remaining for another 18 months as part of a restructured and scaled down contingent, the „stabilization force“ (SFOR), officially established on December 20, 1996.

SFOR begins its mission in Bosnia under a serious cloud both as to the nature of its mission and the dangers it will face. While IFOR had successfully accomplished its basic military task — separating the factions‘ armed forces — there has been very little progress toward other stated goals of the Dayton agreement, including political and economic reintegration of Bosnia, return of refugees to their homes, and apprehension and prosecution of accused war criminals. It is far from certain that the cease-fire that has held through the past year will continue for much longer, in light of such unresolved issues as the status of the cities of Brcko (claimed by Muslims but held by the Serbs) and Mostar (divided between nominal Muslim and Croat allies, both of which are currently being armed by the Clinton Administration). Moreover, at a strength approximately one-third that of its predecessor, SFOR may not be in as strong a position to deter attacks by one or another of the Bosnian factions or to avoid attempts to involve it in renewed fighting: „IFOR forces, despite having suffered few casualties, have been vulnerable to attacks from all of the contending sides over the year of the Dayton mandate. As a second mandate [i.e., SFOR] evolves, presumably maintaining a smaller force on the ground, the deterrent effect which has existed may well become less compelling and vulnerabilities of the troops will increase.“ [„Military Security in Bosnia-Herzegovina: Present and Future,“ Bulletin of the Atlantic Council of the United States, 12/18/96]

The Iranian Connection

Perhaps most threatening to the SFOR mission — and more importantly, to the safety of the American personnel serving in Bosnia — is the unwillingness of the Clinton Administration to come clean with the Congress and with the American people about its complicity in the delivery of weapons from Iran to the Muslim government in Sarajevo. That policy, personally approved by Bill Clinton in April 1994 at the urging of CIA Director-designate (and then-NSC chief) Anthony Lake and the U.S. ambassador to Croatia Peter Galbraith, has, according to the Los Angeles Times (citing classified intelligence community sources), „played a central role in the dramatic increase in Iranian influence in Bosnia.“ Further, according to the Times, in September 1996 National Security Agency analysts contradicted Clinton Administration claims of declining Iranian influence, insisting instead that „Iranian Revolutionary Guard personnel remain active throughout Bosnia.“ Likewise, „CIA analysts noted that the Iranian presence was expanding last fall,“ with some ostensible cultural and humanitarian activities „known to be fronts“ for the Revolutionary Guard and Iran’s intelligence service, known as VEVAK, the Islamic revolutionary successor to the Shah’s SAVAK. [LAT, 12/31/96] At a time when there is evidence of increased willingness by pro-Iranian Islamic militants to target American assets abroad — as illustrated by the June 1996 car-bombing at the Khobar Towers in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, that killed 19 American airmen, in which the Iranian government or pro-Iranian terrorist organizations are suspected [„U.S. Focuses Bomb Probe on Iran, Saudi Dissident,“ Chicago Tribune, 11/4/96] — it is irresponsible in the extreme for the Clinton Administration to gloss over the extent to which its policies have put American personnel in an increasingly vulnerable position while performing an increasingly questionable mission.

Three Key Issues for Examination

This paper will examine the Clinton policy of giving the green light to Iranian arms shipments to the Bosnian Muslims, with serious implications for the safety of U.S. troops deployed there. (In addition, RPC will release a general analysis of the SFOR mission and the Clinton Administration’s requBakir Izetbegovic,est for supplemental appropriations to fund it in the near future.) Specifically, the balance of this paper will examine in detail the three issues summarized below:

1. The Clinton Green Light to Iranian Arms Shipments (page 3): In April 1994, President Clinton gave the government of Croatia what has been described by Congressional committees as a „green light“ for shipments of weapons from Iran and other Muslim countries to the Muslim-led government of Bosnia. The policy was approved at the urging of NSC chief Anthony Lake and the U.S. ambassador to Croatia Peter Galbraith. The CIA and the Departments of State and Defense were kept in the dark until after the decision was made.

2. The Militant Islamic Network (page 5): Along with the weapons, Iranian Revolutionary Guards and VEVAK intelligence operatives entered Bosnia in large numbers, along with thousands of mujahedin („holy warriors“) from across the Muslim world. Also engaged in the effort were several other Muslim countries (including Brunei, Malaysia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Turkey) and a number of radical Muslim organizations. For example, the role of one Sudan-based „humanitarian organization,“ called the Third World Relief Agency, has been well-documented. The Clinton Administration’s „hands-on“ involvement with the Islamic network’s arms pipeline included inspections of missiles from Iran by U.S. government officials.

3. The Radical Islamic Character of the Sarajevo Regime (page 8): Underlying the Clinton Administration’s misguided green light policy is a complete misreading of its main beneficiary, the Bosnian Muslim government of Alija Izetbegovic. Rather than being the tolerant, multiethnic democratic government it pretends to be, there is clear evidence that the ruling circle of Izetbegovic’s party, the Party of Democratic Action (SDA), has long been guided by the principles of radical Islam. This Islamist orientation is illustrated by profiles of three important officials, including President Izetbegovic himself; the progressive Islamization of the Bosnian army, including creation of native Bosnian mujahedin units; credible claims that major atrocities against civilians in Sarajevo were staged for propaganda purposes by operatives of the Izetbegovic government; and suppression of enemies, both non-Muslim and Muslim.

The Clinton Green Light to Iranian Arms Shipments

Both the Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Select Subcommittee to Investigate the United States Role in Iranian Arms Transfers to Croatia and Bosnia issued reports late last year. (The Senate report, dated November 1996, is unclassified. The House report is classified, with the exception of the final section of conclusions, which was released on October 8, 1996; a declassified version of the full report is expected to be released soon.) The reports, consistent with numerous preBakir Izetbegovic,ss accounts, confirm that on April 27, 1994, President Clinton directed Ambassador Galbraith to inform the government of Croatia that he had „no instructions“ regarding Croatia’s decision whether or not to permit weapons, primarily from Iran, to be transshipped to Bosnia through Croatia. (The purpose was to facilitate the acquisition of arms by the Muslim-led government in Sarajevo despite the arms embargo imposed on Yugoslavia by the U.N. Security Council.) Clinton Administration officials took that course despite their awareness of the source of the weapons and despite the fact that the Croats (who were themselves divided on whether to permit arms deliveries to the Muslims) would take anything short of a U.S. statement that they should not facilitate the flow of Iranian arms to Bosnia as a „green light.“

The green light policy was decided upon and implemented with unusual secrecy, with the CIA and the Departments of State and Defense only informed after the fact. [„U.S. Had Options to Let Bosnia Get Arms, Avoid Iran,“ Los Angeles Times, 7/14/96] Among the key conclusions of the House Subcommittee were the following (taken from the unclassified section released on October 8):

„The President and the American people were poorly served by the Administration officials who rushed the green light decision without due deliberation, full information and an adequate consideration of the consequences.“ (page 202)

„The Administration’s efforts to keep even senior US officials from seeing its ‚fingerprints‘ on the green light policy led to confusion and disarray within the government.“ (page 203)

„The Administration repeatedly deceived the American people about its Iranian green light policy.“ (page 204)

Clinton, Lake, and Galbraith Responsible

While the final go-ahead for the green light was given by President Clinton — who is ultimately accountable for the results of his decision — two Clinton Administration officials bear particular responsibility: Ambassador Galbraith and then-NSC Director Anthony Lake, against both of whom the House of Representatives has referred criminal charges to the Justice Department. Mr. Lake, who personally presented the proposal to Bill Clinton for approval, „played a central role in preventing the responsible congressional committees from knowing about the Administration’s fateful decision to acquiesce in radical Islamic Iran’s effort to penetrate the European continent through arms shipments and military cooperation with the Bosnian government.“ [„‚In Lake We Trust‘? Confirmation Make-Over Exacerbates Senate Concerns About D.C.I.-Designate’s Candor, Reliability,“ Center for Security Policy, Washington, D.C., 1/8/97] His responsibility for the operation is certain to be a major hurdle in his effort to be confirmed as CIA Director: „The fact that Lake was one of the authors of the duplicitous policy in Bosnia, which is very controversial and which has probably helped strengthen the hand of the Iranians, doesn’t play well,“ stated Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Shelby. [„Lake to be asked about donation,“ Washington Times, 1/2/97]

For his part, Ambassador Galbraith was the key person both in conceiving the policy and in serving as the link between the Clinton Administration and the Croatian government; he also met with Imam Sevko Omerbasic, the top Muslim cleric in Croatia, „who the CIA says was an intermediary for Iran.“ [„Fingerprints: Arms to Bosnia, the real story,“ The New Republic, 10/28/96; see also LAT 12/23/96] As the House Subcommittee concluded (page 206): „There is evidence that Ambassador Galbraith may have engaged in activities that could be characterized as unauthorized covert action.“ The Senate Committee (pages 19 and 20 of the report) was unable to agree on the specific legal issue of whether Galbraith’s actions constituted a „covert action“ within the definition of section 503(e) of the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. Sec. 413(e)), as amended, defined as „an activity or activities . . . to influence political, economic, or military conditions abroad, where it is intended that the role of the United States Government will not be apparent or acknowledged publicly.“

The Militant Islamic Network

The House Subcommittee report also concluded (page 2): „The Administration’s Iranian green light policy gave Iran an unprecedented foothold in Europe and has recklessly endangered American lives and US strategic interests.“ Further —

“ . . . The Iranian presence and influence [in Bosnia] jumped radically in the months following the green light. Iranian elements infiltrated the Bosnian government and established close ties with the current leadership in Bosnia and the next generation of leaders. Iranian Revolutionary Guards accompanied Iranian weapons into Bosnia and soon were integrated in the Bosnian military structure from top to bottom as well as operating in independent units throughout Bosnia. The Iranian intellBakir Izetbegovic,igence service [VEVAK] ran wild through the area developing intelligence networks, setting up terrorist support systems, recruiting terrorist ’sleeper‘ agents and agents of influence, and insinuating itself with the Bosnian political leadership to a remarkable degree. The Iranians effectively annexed large portions of the Bosnian security apparatus [known as the Agency for Information and Documentation (AID)] to act as their intelligence and terrorist surrogates. This extended to the point of jointly planning terrorist activities. The Iranian embassy became the largest in Bosnia and its officers were given unparalleled privileges and access at every level of the Bosnian government.“ (page 201)

Not Just the Iranians

To understand how the Clinton green light would lead to this degree of Iranian influence, it is necessary to remember that the policy was adopted in the context of extensive and growing radical Islamic activity in Bosnia. That is, the Iranians and other Muslim militants had long been active in Bosnia; the American green light was an important political signal to both Sarajevo and the militants that the United States was unable or unwilling to present an obstacle to those activities — and, to a certain extent, was willing to cooperate with them. In short, the Clinton Administration’s policy of facilitating the delivery of arms to the Bosnian Muslims made it the de facto partner of an ongoing international network of governments and organizations pursuing their own agenda in Bosnia: the promotion of Islamic revolution in Europe. That network involves not only Iran but Brunei, Malaysia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan (a key ally of Iran), and Turkey, together with front groups supposedly pursuing humanitarian and cultural activities.

For example, one such group about which details have come to light is the Third World Relief Agency (TWRA), a Sudan-based, phoney humanitarian organization which has been a major link in the arms pipeline to Bosnia. [„How Bosnia’s Muslims Dodged Arms Embargo: Relief Agency Brokered Aid From Nations, Radical Groups,“ Washington Post, 9/22/96; see also „Saudis Funded Weapons For Bosnia, Official Says: $300 Million Program Had U.S. ‚Stealth Cooperation‘,“ Washington Post, 2/2/96] TWRA is believed to be connected with such fixtures of the Islamic terror network as Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman (the convicted mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing) and Osama Binladen, a wealthy Saudi emigre believed to bankroll numerous militant groups. [WP, 9/22/96] (Sheik Rahman, a native of Egypt, is currently in prison in the United States; letter bombs addressed to targets in Washington and London, apparently from Alexandria, Egypt, are believed connected with his case. Binladen was a resident in Khartoum, Sudan, until last year; he is now believed to be in Afghanistan, „where he has issued statements calling for attacks on U.S. forces in the Persian Gulf.“ [WP, 9/22/96])

The Clinton Administration’s „Hands-On“ Help

The extent to which Clinton Administration officials, notably Ambassador Galbraith, knowingly or negligently, cooperated with the efforts of such front organizations is unclear. For example, according to one intelligence account seen by an unnamed U.S. official in the Balkans, „Galbraith ‚talked with representatives of Muslim countries on payment for arms that would be sent to Bosnia,‘ . . . [T]he dollar amount mentioned in the report was $500 million-$800 million. The U.S. official said he also saw subsequent ‚operational reports‘ in 1995 on almost weekly arms shipments of automatic weapons, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, anti-armor rockets and TOW missiles.“ [TNR, 10/28/96] The United States played a disturbingly „hands-on“ role, with, according to the Senate report (page 19), U.S. government personnel twice conducting inspections in Croatia of missiles en route to Bosnia. Further —

„The U.S. decision to send personnel to Croatia to inspect rockets bound for Bosnia is . . . subject to varying interpretations. It may have been simply a straightforward effort to determine whether chemical weapons were being shipped into Bosnia. It was certainly, at least in part, an opportunity to examine a rocket in which the United States had some interest. But it may also have been designed to ensure that Croatia would not shut down the pipeline.“ (page 21)

The account in The New Republic points sharply to the latter explanation: „Enraged at Iran’s apparent attempt to slip super weapons past Croat monitors, the Croatian defense minister nonetheless sent the missiles on to Bosnia ‚just as Peter [i.e., Ambassador Galbraith] told us to do,‘ sources familiar with the episode said.“ [TNR, 10/28/96] In short, the Clinton Administration’s connection with the various players that made up the arms network seems to have been direct and intimate.

The Mujahedin Threat

In addition to (and working closely with) the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and VEVAK intelligence are members of numerous radical groups known for their anti-Western orientation, along with thousands of volunteer mujahedin („holy warriors“) from across the Islamic world. From the beginning of the NATO-led deployment, the Clinton Administration has given insufficient weight to military concerns regarding the mujahedin presence in Bosnia as well as the danger they pose to American personnel. Many of the fighters are concentrated in the so-called „green triangle“ (the color green symbolizes Islam) centered on the town of Zenica in the American IFOR/SFOR zone but are also found throughout the country.

The Clinton Administration has been willing to accept Sarajevo’s transparently false assurances of the departure of the foreign fighters based on the contention that they have married Bosnian women and have acquired Bosnian citizenship — and thus are no longer „foreign“! — or, having left overt military units to join „humanitarian,“ „cultural,“ or „charitable“ organizations, are no longer „fighters.“ [See „Foreign Muslims Fighting in Bosnia Considered ‚Threat‘ to U.S. Troops,“ Washington Post, 11/30/95; „Outsiders Bring Islamic Fervor To the Balkans,“ New York Times, 9/23/96; „Islamic Alien Fighters Settle in Bosnia,“ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 9/23/96; „Mujahideen rule Bosnian villages: Threaten NATO forces, non-Muslims,“ Washington Times, 9/23/96; and Yossef Bodansky, Offensive in the Balkans (November 1995) and Some Call It Peace (August 1996), International Media Corporation, Ltd., London. Bodansky, an analyst with the House Republican Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare, is an internationally recognized authority on Islamic terrorism.] The methods employed to qualify for Bosnian citizenship are themselves problematic: „Islamic militants from Iran and other foreign countries are employing techniques such as forced marriages, kidnappings and the occupation of apartments and houses to remain in Bosnia in violation of the Dayton peace accord and may be a threat to U.S. forces.“ [„Mujaheddin Remaining in Bosnia: Islamic Militants Strongarm Civilians, Defy Dayton Plan,“ Washington Post, 7/8/96]

The threat presented by the mujahedin to IFOR (and now, to SFOR) — contingent only uponBakir Izetbegovic, the precise time their commanders in Tehran or Sarajevo should choose to activate them — has been evident from the beginning of the NATO-led deployment. For example, in February 1996 NATO forces raided a terrorist training camp near the town of Fojnica, taking into custody 11 men (8 Bosnian citizens — two of whom may have been naturalized foreign mujahedin — and three Iranian instructors); also seized were explosives „built into small children’s plastic toys, including a car, a helicopter and an ice cream cone,“ plus other weapons such as handguns, sniper rifles, grenade launchers, etc. The Sarajevo government denounced the raid, claiming the facility was an „intelligence service school“; the detainees were released promptly after NATO turned them over to local authorities. [„NATO Captures Terrorist Training Camp, Claims Iranian Involvement,“ Associated Press, 2/16/96; „Bosnian government denies camp was for terrorists,“ Reuters, 2/16/96; Bodansky Some Call It Peace, page 56] In May 1996, a previously unknown group called „Bosnian Islamic Jihad“ (jihad means „holy war“) threatened attacks on NATO troops by suicide bombers, similar to those that had recently been launched in Israel. [„Jihad Threat in Bosnia Alarms NATO,“ The European, 5/9/96]

Stepping-Stone to Europe

The intended targets of the mujahedin network in Bosnia are not limited to that country but extend to Western Europe. For example, in August 1995, the conservative Paris daily Le Figaro reported that French security services believe that „Islamic fundamentalists from Algeria have set up a security network across Europe with fighters trained in Afghan guerrilla camps and [in] southern France while some have been tested in Bosnia.“ [(London) Daily Telegraph, 8/17/95] Also, in April 1996, Belgian security arrested a number of Islamic militants, including two native Bosnians, smuggling weapons to Algerian guerrillas active in France. [Intelligence Newsletter, Paris, 5/9/96 (No. 287)] Finally, also in April 1996, a meeting of radicals aligned with HizbAllah („Party of God“), a pro-Iran group based in Lebanon, set plans for stepping up attacks on U.S. assets on all continents; among those participating was an Egyptian, Ayman al-Zawahiri, who „runs the Islamist terrorist operations in Bosnia-Herzegovina from a special headquarters in Sofia, Bulgaria. His forces are already deployed throughout Bosnia, ready to attack US and other I-FOR (NATO Implementation Force) targets.“ [„State-Sponsored Terrorism and The Rise of the HizbAllah International,“ Defense and Foreign Affairs and Strategic Policy, London, 8/31/96] Finally, in December 1996, French and Belgian security arrested several would-be terrorists trained at Iranian-run camps in Bosnia. [„Terrorism: The Bosnian Connection,“ (Paris) L’Express, 12/26/96]

The Radical Islamic Character of the Sarajevo Regime

Underlying the Clinton Administration’s misguided policy toward Iranian influence in Bosnia is a fundamental misreading of the true nature of the Muslim regime that benefitted from the Iran/Bosnia arms policy: „The most dubious of all Bosniac [i.e., Bosnian Muslim] claims pertains to the self-serving commercial that the government hopes to eventually establish a multiethnic liberal democratic society. Such ideals may appeal to a few members of Bosnia’s ruling circle as well as to a generally secular populace, but President Izetbegovic and his cabal appear to harbor much different private intentions and goals.“ [„Selling the Bosnia Myth to America: Buyer Beware,“ Lieutenant Colonel John E. Sray, USA, U.S. Army Foreign Military Studies Office, Fort Leavenworth, KS, October 1995]

The evidence that the leadership of the ruling Party of Democratic Action (SDA), and consequently, the Sarajevo-based government, has long been motivated by the principles of radical Islam is inescapable. The following three profiles are instructive:

Alija Izetbegovic: Alija Izetbegovic, current Bosnian president and head of the SDA, in 1970 authored the radical „Islamic Declaration,“ which calls for „the Islamic movement“ to start to take power as soon as it can overturn „the existing non-Muslim government . . . [and] build up a new Islamic one,“ to destroy non-Islamic institutions („There can be neither peace nor coexistence between the Islamic religion and non-Islamic social institutions“), and to create an international federation of Islamic states. [The Islamic Declaration: A Programme for the Islamization of Muslims and the Muslim Peoples, Sarajevo, in English, 1990] Izetbegovic’s radical pro-Iran associations go back decades: „At the center of the Iranian system in Europe is Bosnia-Hercegovina’s President, Alija Izetbegovic, . . . who is committed to the establishment of an Islamic Republic in Bosnia-Hercegovina.“ [„Iran’s European Springboard?“, House Republican Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare, 9/1/92] The Task Force report further describes Izetbegovic’s contacts with Iran and Libya in 1991, before the Bosnian war began; he is also noted as a „fundamentalist Muslim“ and a member of the „Fedayeen of Islam“ organization, an Iran-based radical group dating to the 1930s and which by the late 1960s had recognized the leadership of the Ayatollah Khomeini (then in exile from the Shah). Following Khomeini’s accession to power in 1979, Izetbegovic stepped-up his efforts to establish Islamic power in Bosnia and was jailed by the communists in 1983. Today, he is open and unapologetic about his links to Iran: „Perhaps the most telling detail of the [SDA’s September 1, 1996] campaign rally . . . was the presence of the Iranian Ambassador and his Bosnian and Iranian bodyguards, who sat in the shadow of the huge birchwood platform. . . . As the only foreign diplomat [present], indeed the only foreigner traveling in the President’s [i.e., Izetbegovic’s] heavily guarded motorcade of bulky four-wheel drive jeeps, he lent a silent Islamic imprimatur to the event, one that many American and European supporters of the Bosnian Government are trying hard to ignore or dismiss.“ [NYT, 9/2/96] During the summer 1996 election campaign, the Iranians delivered to him, in two suitcases, $500,000 in cash; Izetbegovic „is now ‚literally on their [i.e., the Iranians‘] payroll,‘ according to a classified report based on the CIA’s analysis of the issue.“ [LAT, 12/31/96. See also „Iran Contributed $500,000 to Bosnian President’s Election Effort, U.S. Says,“ New York Times, 1/1/97, and Washington Times, 1/2/97] Adil Zulfikarpasic, a Muslim co-founder of the SDA, broke with Izetbegovic in late 1990 due to the increasingly overt fundamentalist and pro-Iranian direction of the party. [See Milovan Djilas, Bosnjak: Adil Zulfikarpasic, Zurich, 1994]

Hassan (or Hasan) Cengic: Until recently, deputy defense minister (and now cosmetically reassigned to a potentially even more dangerous job in refugee resettlement at the behest of the Clinton Administration), Cengic, a member of a powerful clan headed by his father, Halid Cengic, is an Islamic cleric who has traveled frequently to Tehran and is deeply involved in the arms pipeline. [„Bosnian Officials Involved in Arms Trade Tied to Radical States,“ Washington Post, 9/22/96] Cengic was identified by Austrian police as a member of TWRA’s supervisory board, „a fact confirmed by its Sudanese director, Elfatih Hassanein, in a 1994 interview with Gazi Husrev Beg, an Islamic affairs magazine. Cengic later became the key Bosnian official involved in setting up a weapons pipeline from Iran. . . . Cengic . . . is a longtime associate of Izetbegovic’s. He was one of the co-defendants in Izetbegovic’s 1983 trial for fomenting Muslim nationalism in what was then Yugoslavia. Cengic was given a 10-year prison term, most of which he did not serve. In trial testimony Cengic was said to have been traveling to Iran since 1983. Cengic lived in Tehran and Istanbul during much of the war, arranging for weapons to be smuggled into Bosnia.“ [WP, 9/22/96] According to a Bosnian Croat radio profile: „Hasan’s father, Halid Cengic . . . is the main logistic expert in the Muslim army. All petrodollar donations from the Islamic world and the procurement of arms and military technology for Muslim units went through him. He made so much money out of this business that he is one of the richest Muslims today. Halid Cengic and his two sons, of whom Hasan has been more in the public spotlight, also control the Islamic wing of the intelligence agency AID [Agency for Information and Documentation]. Well informed sources in Sarajevo claim that only Hasan addresses Izetbegovic with ‚ti‘ [second person singular, used as an informal form of address] while all the others address him as ‚Mr. President,'“ a sign of his extraordinary degree of intimacy with the president. [BBC Summary of World Broadcasts, 10/28/96, „Radio elaborates on Iranian connection of Bosnian deputy defense minister,“ from Croat Radio Herceg-Bosna, Mostar, in Serbo-Croatian, 10/25/96, bracketed text in original] In late 1996, at the insistence of the Clinton Administration, Hassan Cengic was reassigned to refugee affairs. However, in his new capacity he may present an even greater hazard to NATO forces in Bosnia, in light of past incidents such as the one that took place near the village of Celic in November 1996. At that time, in what NATO officers called part of a pattern of „military operations in disguise,“ American and Russian IFOR troops were caught between Muslims and Serbs as the Muslims, some of them armed, attempted to encroach on the cease-fire line established by Dayton; commented a NATO spokesman: „We believe this to be a deliberate, orchestrated and provocative move to circumvent established procedures for the return of refugees.“ [„Gunfire Erupts as Muslims Return Home,“ Washington Post, 11/13/96]

Dzemal Merdan: „The office of Brig. Gen. Dzemal Merdan is an ornate affair, equipped with an elaborately carved wooden gazebo ringed with red velvet couches and slippers for his guests. A sheepskin prayer mat lies in the corner, pointing toward Mecca. The most striking thing in the chamber is a large flag. It is not the flag of Bosnia, but of Iran. Pinned with a button of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iran’s late Islamic leader, the flag occupies pride of place in Merdan’s digs — displayed in the middle of the gazebo for every visitor to see. Next to it hangs another pennant, that of the Democratic Action Party, the increasingly nationalist Islamic organization of President Alija Izetbegovic that dominates Bosnia’s Muslim region. . . . Merdan’s position highlights the American dilemma. As head of the office of training and development of the Bosnian army, he is a key liaison figure in the U.S. [arm and train] program. . . . But Merdan, Western sources say, also has another job — as liaison with foreign Islamic fighters here since 1992 and promoter of the Islamic faith among Bosnia’s recruits. Sources identified Merdan as being instrumental in the creation of a brigade of Bosnian soldiers, called the 7th Muslim Brigade, that is heavily influenced by Islam and trained by fighters from Iran’s Revolutionary Guards. He has also launched a program, these sources say, to build mosques on military training grounds to teach Islam to Bosnian recruits. In addition, he helped establish training camps in Bosnia where Revolutionary Guards carried out their work.“ [„Arming the Bosnians: U.S. Program Would Aid Force Increasingly Linked to Iran,“ Washington Post, 1/26/96, emphasis added] General Merdan is a close associate of both Izetbegovic and Cengic; the central region around Zenica, which was „completely militarized in the first two years of the war“ under the control of Merdan’s mujahedin, is „under total control of the Cengic family.“ [„Who Rules Bosnia and Which Way,“ (Sarajevo) Slobodna Bosna, 11/17/96, FBIS translation; Slobodna Bosna is one of the few publications in Muslim-held areas that dares to criticize the policies and personal corruption of the ruling SDA clique.] Merdan’s mujahedin were accused by their erstwhile Croat allies of massacring more than 100 Croats near Zenica in late 1993. [„Bosnian Croats vow to probe war crimes by Moslems,“ Agence France Presse, 5/12/95]

The Islamization of the Bosnian Army

In cooperation with the foreign Islamic presence, the Izetbegovic regime has revamped its security and military apparatus to reflect its Islamic revolutionary outlook, including the creation of mujahedin units throughout the army; some members of these units have assumed the guise of a shaheed (a „martyr,“ the Arabic term commonly used to describe suicide bombers), marked by their white garb, representing a shroud. While these units include foreign fighters naturalized in Bosnia, most of the personnel are now Bosnian Muslims trained and indoctrinated by Iranian and other foreign militants — which also makes it easier for the Clinton Administration to minimize the mujahedin threat, because few of them are „foreigners.“
Bakir Izetbegovic,
Prior to 1996, there were three principal mujahedin units in the Bosnian army, the first two of which are headquartered in the American IFOR/SFOR zone: (1) the 7th Muslim Liberation Brigade of the 3rd Corps, headquartered in Zenica; (2) the 9th Muslim Liberation Brigade of the 2nd Corps, headquartered in Travnik (the 2nd Corps is based in Tuzla); and (3) the 4th Muslim Liberation Brigade of the 4th Corps, headquartered in Konjic (in the French zone). [Bodansky, Some Call It Peace, page 40] Particularly ominous, many members of these units have donned the guise of martyrs, indicating their willingness to sacrifice themselves in the cause of Islam. Commenting on an appearance of soldiers from the 7th Liberation Brigade, in Zenica in December 1995, Bodansky writes: „Many of the fighters . . . were dressed in white coveralls over their uniforms. Officially, these were ‚white winter camouflage,‘ but the green headbands [bearing Koranic verses] these warriors were wearing left no doubt that these were actually Shaheeds‘ shrouds.“ [Some Call It Peace, page 12] The same demonstration was staged before the admiring Iranian ambassador and President Izetbegovic in September 1996, when white winter garb could only be symbolic, not functional. [NYT, 9/2/96] By June 1996, ten more mujahedin brigades had been established, along with numerous smaller „special units“ dedicated to covert and terrorist operations; while foreigners are present in all of these units, most of the soldiers are now native Bosnian Muslims. [Some Call It Peace, pages 42-46]

In addition to these units, there exists another group known as the Handzar („dagger“ or „scimitar“) Division, described by Bodansky as a „praetorian guard“ for President Izetbegovic. „Up to 6000-strong, the Handzar division glories in a fascist culture. They see themselves as the heirs of the SS Handzar division, formed by Bosnian Muslims in 1943 to fight for the Nazis. Their spiritual model was Mohammed Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem who sided with Hitler. According to UN officers, surprisingly few of those in charge of the Handzars . . . seem to speak good Serbo-Croatian. ‚Many of them are Albanian, whether from Kosovo [the Serb province where Albanians are the majority] or from Albania itself.‘ They are trained and led by veterans from Afghanistan and Pakistan, say UN sources.“ [„Albanians and Afghans fight for the heirs to Bosnia’s SS past,“ (London) Daily Telegraph, 12/29/93, bracketed text in original]

Self-Inflicted Atrocities

Almost since the beginning of the Bosnian war in the spring of 1992, there have been persistent reports — readily found in the European media but little reported in the United States — that civilian deaths in Muslim-held Sarajevo attributed to the Bosnian Serb Army were in some cases actually inflicted by operatives of the Izetbegovic regime in an (ultimately successful) effort to secure American intervention on Sarajevo’s behalf. These allegations include instances of sniping at civilians as well as three major explosions, attributed to Serbian mortar fire, that claimed the lives of dozens of people and, in each case, resulted in the international community’s taking measures against the Muslims‘ Serb enemies. (The three explosions were: (1) the May 27, 1992, „breadline massacre,“ which was reported to have killed 16 people and which resulted in economic sanctions on the Bosnian Serbs and rump Yugoslavia; (2) the February 5, 1994, Markale „market massacre,“ killing 68 and resulting in selective NATO air strikes and an ultimatum to the Serbs to withdraw their heavy weapons from the area near Sarajevo; and (3) the August 28, 1995 „second market massacre,“ killing 37 and resulting in large-scale NATO air strikes, eventually leading to the Dayton agreement and the deployment of IFOR.) When she was asked about such allegations (with respect to the February 1994 explosion) then-U.N. Ambassador and current Secretary of State-designate Madeleine Albright, in a stunning non sequitur, said: „It’s very hard to believe any country would do this to their own people, and therefore, although we do not exactly know what the facts are, it would seem to us that the Serbs are the ones that probably have a great deal of responsibility.“ [„Senior official admits to secret U.N. report on Sarajevo massacre,“ Deutsch Presse-Agentur, 6/6/96, emphasis added]

The fact that such a contention is difficult to believe does not mean it is not true. Not only did the incidents lead to the result desired by Sarajevo (Western action against the Bosnian Serbs), their staging by the Muslims would be entirely in keeping with the moral outlook of Islamic radicalism, which has long accepted the deaths of innocent (including Muslim) bystanders killed in terrorist actions. According to a noted analyst: „The dictum that the end justifies the means is adopted by all fundamentalist organizations in their strategies for achieving political power and imposing on society their own view of Islam. What is important in every action is its niy’yah, its motive. No means need be spared in the service of Islam as long as one takes action with a pure niy’yah.“ [Amir Taheri, Holy Terror, Bethesda, MD, 1987] With the evidence that the Sarajevo leadership does in fact have a fundamentalist outlook, it is unwarranted to dismiss cavalierly the possibility of Muslim responsibility. Among some of the reports:

Sniping: „French peacekeeping troops in the United Nations unit trying to curtail Bosnian Serb sniping at civilians in Sarajevo have concluded that until mid-June some gunfire also came from Government soldiers deliberately shooting at their own civilians. After what it called a ‚definitive‘ investigation, a French marine unit that patrols against snipers said it traced sniper fire to a building normally occupied by Bosnian [i.e., Muslim] soldiers and other security forces. A senior French officer said, ‚We find it almost impossible to believe, but we are sure that it is true.'“ [„Investigation Concludes Bosnian Government Snipers Shot at Civilians,“ New York Times, 8/1/95]

The 1992 „Breadline Massacre“: „United Nations officials and senior Western military officers believe some of the worst killings in Sarajevo, including the massacre of at least 16 people in a bread queue, were carried out by the city’s mainly Muslim defenders — not Serb besiegers — as a propaganda ploy to win world sympathy and military intervention. . . . Classified reports to the UN force commander, General Satish Nambiar, concluded . . . that Bosnian forces loyal to President Alija Izetbegovic may have detonated a bomb. ‚We believe it was a command-detonated explosion, probably in a can,‘ a UN official said then. ‚The large impact which is there now is not necessarily similar or anywhere near as large as we came to expect with a mortar round landing on a paved surface.“ [„Muslims ’slaughter their own people‘,“ (London) The Independent, 8/22/92] „Our people tell us there were a number of things that didn’t fit. The street had been blocked off just before the incident. Once the crowd was let in and had lined up, the media appeared but kept their distance. The attack took place, and the media were immediately on the scene.“ [Major General Lewis MacKenzie, Peacekeeper: The Road to Sarajevo, Vancouver, BC, 1993, pages 193-4; Gen. MacKenzie, a Canadian, had been commander of the U.N. peacekeeping force in Sarajevo.]

The 1994 Markale „Market Massacre“: „French television reported last night that the United Nations investigation into the market-place bombing in Sarajevo two weeks ago had established beyond doubt that the mortar shell that killed 68 people was fired from inside Bosnian [Muslim] lines.“ [„UN tracks source of fatal shell,“ (London) The Times, 2/19/94] „For the first time, a senior U.N. official has admitted the existence of a secret U.N. report that blames the Bosnian Moslems for the February 1994 massacre of Moslems at a Sarajevo market. . . . After studying the crater left by the mortar shell and the distribution of shrapnel, the report concluded that the shell was fired from behind Moslem lines.“ The report, however, was kept secret; the context of the wire story implies that U.S. Ambasador Albright may have been involved in its suppression. [DPA, 6/6/96] For a fuller discussion of the conflicting claims, see „Anatomy of a massacre,“ Foreign Policy, 12/22/94, by David Binder; Binder, a veteran New York Times reporter in Yugoslavia, had access to the suppressed report. Bodansky categorically states that the bomb „was actually a special charge designed and built with help from HizbAllah [„Party of God,“ a Beirut-based pro-Iranian terror group] experts and then most likely dropped from a nearby rooftop onto the crowd of shoppers. Video cameras at the ready recorded this expertly-staged spectacle of gore, while dozens of corpses of Bosnian Muslim troops killed in action (exchanged the day before in a ‚body swap‘ with the Serbs) were paraded in front of cameras to raise the casualty counts.“ [Offensive in the Balkans, page 62]

The 1995 „Second Market Massacre“: „British ammunition experts serving with the United Nations in Sarajevo have challenged key ‚evidence‘ of the Serbian atrocity that triggered the devastating Nato bombing campaign which turned the tide of the Bosnian war.“ The Britons‘ analysis was confirmed by French analysts but their findings were „dismissed“ by „a senior American officer“ at U.N. headquarters in Sarajevo. [„Serbs ’not guilty‘ of massacre: Experts warned US that mortar was Bosnian,“ (London) The Times, 10/1/95] A „crucial U.N. report [stating Serb responsibility for] the market massacre is a classified secret, but four specialists — a Russian, a Canadian and two Americans — have raised serious doubts about its conclusion, suggesting instead that the mortar was fired not by the Serbs but by Bosnian government forces.“ A Canadian officer „added that he and fellow Canadian officers in Bosnia were ‚convinced that the Muslim government dropped both the February 5, 1994, and the August 28, 1995, mortar shells on the Sarajevo markets.'“ An unidentified U.S. official „contends that the available evidence suggests either ‚the shell was fired at a very low trajectory, which means a range of a few hundred yards — therefore under [Sarajevo] government control,‘ or ‚a mortar shell converted into a bomb was dropped from a nearby roof into the crowd.'“ [„Bosnia’s bombers,“ The Nation, 10/2/95]. At least some high-ranking French and perhaps other Western officials believed the Muslims responsible; after having received that account from government ministers and two generals, French magazine editor Jean Daniel put the question directly to Prime Minister Edouard Balladur: „‚They [i.e., the Muslims] have committed this carnage on their own people?‘ I exclaimed in consternation. ‚Yes,‘ confirmed the Prime Minister without hesitation, ‚but at least they have forced NATO to intervene.'“ [„No more lies about Bosnia,“ Le Nouvel Observateur, 8/31/95, translated in Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture, January 1997]

Suppression of Enemies

As might be expected, one manifestation of the radical Islamic orientation of the Izetbegovic government is increasing curtailment of the freedoms of the remaining non-Muslims (Croats and Serbs) in the Muslim-held zone. While there are similar pressures on minorities in the Serb- and Croat-held parts of Bosnia, in the Muslim zone they have a distinct Islamic flavor. For example, during the 1996-1997 Christmas and New Year holiday season, Muslim militants attempted to intimidate not only Muslims but Christians from engaging in what had become common holiday practices, such as gift-giving, putting up Christmas or New Year’s trees, and playing the local Santa Claus figure, Grandfather Frost (Deda Mraz). [„The Holiday, All Wrapped Up; Bosnian Muslims Take Sides Over Santa,“ Washington Post, 12/26/96] In general:

„Even in Sarajevo itself, always portrayed as the most prominent multi-national community in Bosnia, pressure, both psychological and real, is impelling non-Bosniaks [i.e., non-Muslims] to leave. Some measures are indirect, such as attempts to ban the sale of pork and the growing predominance of [Bosniak] street names. Other measures are deliberate efforts to apply pressure. Examples include various means to make non-Bosniaks leave the city. Similar pressures, often with more violent expression and occasionally with overt official participation, are being used throughout Bosnia.“ [„Bosnia’s Security and U.S. Policy in the Next Phase: A Policy Paper, International Research and Exchanges Board, November 1996]

In addition, President Izetbegovic’s party, the SDA, has launched politically-motivated attacks on moderate Muslims both within the SDA and in rival parties. For example, in the summer of 1996 former Prime Minister Haris Silajdzic, (a Muslim, and son of the former imam at the main Sarajevo mosque) was set upon and beaten by SDA militants. Silajdzic claimed Izetbegovic himself was behind the attacks. [NYT, 9/2/96] Irfan Mustafic, a Muslim who co-founded the SDA, is a member of the Bosnian parliament and was president of the SDA’s executive council in Srebrenica when it fell to Bosnian Serb forces; he was taken prisoner but later released. Because of several policy disagreements with Izetbegovic and his close associates, Mustafic was shot and seriously wounded in Srebrenica by Izetbegovic loyalists. [(Sarajevo) Slobodna Bosna, 7/14/96] Finally, one incident sums up both the ruthlessness of the Sarajevo establishment in dealing with their enemies as well as their international radical links:

„A special Bosnian army unit headed by Bakir Izetbegovic, the Bosnian president’s son, murdered a Bosnian general found shot to death in Belgium last week, a Croatian newspaper reported . . . citing well-informed sources. The Vjesnik newspaper, controlled by the government, said the assassination of Yusuf Prazina was carried out by five members of a commando unit called ‚Delta‘ and headed by Ismet Bajramovic also known as Celo. The paper said that three members of the Syrian-backed Palestinian movement Saika had Prazina under surveillance for three weeks before one of them, acting as an arms dealer, lured him into a trap in a car park along the main highway between Liege in eastern Belgium and the German border town of Aachen. Prazina, 30, nicknamed Yuka, went missing early last month. He was found Saturday with two bullet holes to the head. ‚The necessary logistical means to carry out the operation were provided by Bakir Izetbegovic, son of Alija Izetbegovic, who left Sarajevo more than six months ago,‘ Vjesnik said. It added that Bakir Izetbegovic ‚often travels between Brussels, Paris, Frankfurt, Baghdad, Tehran and Ankara, by using Iraqi and Pakistani passports,‘ and was in Belgium at the time of the assassination. Hasan Cengic, head of logistics for the army in Bosnia-Hercegovina, was ‚personally involved in the assassination of Yuka Prazina,‘ the paper said.“ [Agence France Presse, 1/5/94]

Conclusion

The Clinton Administration’s blunder in giving the green light to the Iranian arms pipeline was based, among other errors, on a gross misreading of the true nature and goals of the Izetbegovic regime in Sarajevo. It calls to mind the similar mistake of the Carter Administration, which in 1979 began lavish aid to the new Sandinista government in Nicaragua in the hopes that (if the United States were friendly enough) the nine comandantes would turn out to be democrats, not communists, despite abundant evidence to the contrary. By the time the Reagan Administration finally cut off the dollar spigot in 1981, the comandantes — or the „nine little Castros,“ as they were known locally — had fully entrenched themselves in power.

To state that the Clinton Administration erred in facilitating the penetration of the Iranians and other radical elements into Europe would be a breathtaking understatement. A thorough reexamination of U.S. policy and goals in the region is essential. In particular, addressing the immediate threat to U.S. troops in Bosnia, exacerbated by the extention of the IFOR/SFOR mission, should be a major priority of the 105th Congress.  https://archive.is/x2i4i#selection-196.1-1013.430

Recherche: Hillary Clinton verantwortlich für Saringas-Geheimoperation und Tod Tausender Syrer

Recherche: Hillary Clinton verantwortlich für Saringas-Geheimoperation und Tod Tausender Syrer
Laut Recherchen des investigativen US-Journalisten und Pulitzer-Preisträgers Seymour Hersh ist die US-Präsidentschaftskandidatin Hillary Clinton verantwortlich für eine Geheimoperation im Jahr 2012, in welcher Sarin aus libyschen Giftgas-Beständen mit Hilfe der CIA nach Syrien geschmuggelt und dort von islamistischen Rebellen eingesetzt wurde. Der Giftgasanschlag wurde später der al Assad-Regierung in die Schuhe geschoben und sollte als Vorwand für eine Militär-Intervention der USA dienen.

Von Rainer Rupp

Ist die US-Präsidentschaftskandidatin für Tausendfachen Giftgasmord verantwortlich? Das hat jedenfalls der vielfach ausgezeichnete, weltbekannte US-Enthüllungsjournalist Seymour Hersh jetzt in einem Interview mit Alternet.org behauptet. Obamas ehemalige Außenministerin Hillary Clinton sei nicht nur die Hauptverantwortliche, sondern auch mit an Sicherheit grenzender Wahrscheinlichkeit über alle Details einer mörderischen Geheimdienstoperation informiert gewesen, die vor knapp drei Jahren für über Tausend syrische Zivilisten einen grausamen Tod zur Folge hatte.

Im Rahmen dieser Operation brachten in 2012 islamistische Rebellen das tödliche Giftgas Sarin aus den Beständen der geschlagenen libyschen Armee mit aktiver Hilfe der CIA nach Syrien. Dort haben dann syrische Halsabschneider der von Saudi Arabien und der Türkei unterstützten Al-Kaida Nachfolgeorganisation Al-Nousra im Verein mit den von Washington offiziell geförderten, sogenannten „gemäßigten Terroristen“ am 21. August 2013 das Sarin in der syrischen Stadt Ghuta eingesetzt.

Bei dem Sarin-Einsatz starben geschätzte 1.200 Menschen, unbeteiligte Männer, Frauen und viele Kinder, einen qualvollen Tod. Damals wurde der grausige Anschlag von westlichen Regierungen und Medien einstimmig und sofort und ohne weitere Prüfung der rechtmäßigen syrischen Regierung in Damaskus in die Schuhe geschoben. Die neokonservativen Kriegstreiber in den USA und Europa ereiferten sich, der syrische Präsident Assad habe damit die von Präsident Obama gezogene, so genannte „Rote Linie“ überschritten. Unter Verweis auf das angeblich gelungene Beispiel Libyen drängten sie mit Macht auf den Beginn eines westlichen Luftkriegs gegen Syrien. Damit sollte die syrische „Opposition“ in Damaskus an die Macht gebombt werden, obwohl schon damals eine – seither veröffentlichte – Analyse der DIA (Der militärische Nachrichtendienst der USA) davor gewarnt hatte, dass die so genannte „syrische Opposition“ so gut wie ausschließlich aus fanatisierten, islamistischen Gewaltextremisten bestand.

In zwei früheren Untersuchungen in der “London Review of Books” – „Whose Sarin“ (Wessen Sarin?) vom Dezember 2013 und „The Red Line and the Rat Line“  (Die Rote Linie und die Rattenlinie) vom April 2014 – hatte Seymour Hersh bereits nachgewiesen, dass die Obama-Regierung fälschlicherweise der Assad-Regierung die Schuld für den Sarin-Anschlag gab, um den Vorwand als Kriegsgrund zu nutzen. Hersh verwies darin auch auf einen Bericht von Experten des britischen Geheimdienstes, wonach das in Ghuta eingesetzte Sarin nicht aus den Lagerbeständen der syrischen Armee kam. Hersh enthüllte auch, dass eine im Jahr 2012 geschlossene Geheimvereinbarung zwischen dem US-Außenministerium, den Regierungen der Türkei, Saudi-Arabiens und Katars gab, wonach ein unter falscher Flagge geführter Sarin-Angriff Assad angelastet und den Vorwand für ein direktes militärisches Eingreifen der USA und ihrer Verbündeten liefern sollte.

In „Die Rote Linie und die Rattenlinie“ schrieb Hersh damals:

„Laut der Bedingungen der Vereinbarung kam die Finanzierung aus der Türkei, sowie aus Saudi Arabien und Katar, die CIA, mit der Unterstützung von MI6, war verantwortlich dafür, dass die Waffen aus Gaddafis Arsenalen nach Syrien geliefert wurden.“

Dafür, dass es damals Giftgasvorräte, darunter Sarin, in den Arsenalen Gaddafi gab, gibt es außer den Untersuchungen von Hersh auch unabhängige Berichte, z.B. hier, und hier und hier. Daraus geht auch hervor, dass das US-Konsulat in Bengasi, die Hochburg islamistischer Rebellen in Libyen, eine „Rattenlinie“ in Form des Schmuggels von Gaddafis erbeuteten Waffen durch die Türkei nach Syrien betrieben hat.

Hersh ist nicht der einzige investigative Reporter, der die False Flag des Sarinanschlags in Syrien aufgedeckt hat. Christoph Lehmann veröffentlichte z.B. am 7. Oktober 2013 seine Rechercheergebnisse unter dem Titel: „Top Regierungsbeamte der US und Saudi-Arabiens sind für den Chemiewaffeneinsatz in Syrien verantwortlich“. Auf der Grundlage von signifikant unterschiedlichen Quellen als die von Hersh verwendeten, kam auch Chris Lehmann zum selben Schluss:

„Die Spur der Beweise führt direkt zum Weißen Haus, zum Vorsitzenden der Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, zu CIA-Direktor John Brennan, zum saudischen Geheimdienstchef Prinz Bandar und zum Innenministerium Saudi-Arabiens.“

Und als ob das nicht genug wäre, auch die endgültige Analyse der von der US-Regierung nach dem Anschlag gesammelten Beweismittel durch zwei führende US-Analysten, die im Lloyd-Post Bericht des weltberühmten MIT-Instituts in Boston veröffentlicht wurde, ergab, dass „die Interpretation der forensischen Beweismittel, die die US-Regierung vor und nach dem Angriff vom 21. August gesammelt hat, können unter gar keinen Umständen korrekt sein.“

Doch welche Rolle hat die derzeit aussichtsreichste Kandidatin der Demokratischen Partei auf die US-Präsidentschaft, Hillary Clinton, in diesem inzwischen auf weiten Strecken aufgeklärten, verbrecherischen Komplott gespielt? In dem eingangs erwähnten Interview mit Alternet.org hat Hersh die damalige US-Außenministerin Hillary Clinton zum ersten Mal direkt mit der Bengasi „Rattenlinie“ in Zusammenhang gebracht. Der von Seiten des US-Außenministeriums vor Ort in Bengasi für die Geheimoperation verantwortliche US-Botschafter Christopher Stevens war am 11. September 2012 gemeinsam mit einigen seiner geheimdienstlichen Mitarbeitern von einer der konkurrierenden, lokalen Islamistengruppen erschossen worden. Auf diesen Botschafter Stevens bezieht sich Hersh im Alternet.org Interview, wenn er sagt:

„Der Botschafter, der getötet wurde, war als Mann bekannt, der sich nicht in irgendeiner Weise der CIA in den Weg gestellt hätte. Wie ich bereits geschrieben habe, hat er sich am Tag der Verladung [der Waffen] mit dem lokalen CIA-Chef und Vertretern der Rederei getroffen. Er war sicherlich bewusst daran beteiligt und war sich auch vollkommen im Klaren, worum es ging. Und da gibt es einfach keine Möglichkeit, dass jemand, der in einer solch sensiblen Position war wie er, nicht zuvor mit dem Chef gesprochen hat, egal über welchen Kanal.“

Und der Chef aller US-Botschafter war damals Außenministerin Hillary Clinton, die „Königin des Chaos“, wie der Titel des sehr lesenswerten, jetzt auf Deutsch erschienenen Buchs von Diana Johnstone heißt.

2 Hinrichtungen im EU – US geschaffenen Rechtssystem dem NATO Staat Albanien: ein hoher Ex-Polizei Präsident: Artan Cuku und Elidon Mehmeti

Anti Mafia Lecce – DIA Bericht: Albanische Minister, Abgeordnete sind Mitglieder der Albaner Mafia und im Drogen Geschaeft

Aktuell: Ebenso Berisha – CDU – KAS Bande:Hohe Haftstrafen, für ein Familien Mitglied der Mafia Familie des Abgeordneten „Mhill Fufi“ in England wegen Drogen Handel

Vlore wieder mal, wo Spektakuläre Hinrichtungen wie von S. Konomi nie aufgeklärt wurden. Der jetzige Innenminister das der Richter S. Konomi, zur Grundstücks Mafia gehört, was längst bewiesen wurde: Xhafaj: Konomi u vra nga mafia e tokave

Nochmal ein Berufs Killer unterwegs: Elidon Mehmeti 35 Jahre, wurde durchsiebt mit 15 Kugeln in der Verbrecher Stadt Vlore

Einer der vielen Morde, welche die EU und USA zu verantworten haben, denn man reagierte nicht, auf die damalige schwere Kritik des Leiters der EU Polizei Mission PAMICA II, in 2007. Man finanzierte weiter die Zustände, von Verbrecher Clans, die Zerstörung der Justiz und des Polizei Appartes und war damit beschäftigt, möglichst viel Geld zustehlen auch mit Privatisierungen. Gute EU, US Leute, echte Polizei Profis vor Ort, Sicherheits Reports, wurden immer von den EU, NATO Kriminellen ignoriert, wie bei der EU Aufnahme von Rumänien und Bulgarien.

Artan Cuku 42 Jahre, gehörte als Ex-Vize Polizei Chef von Tirana, Ex-Polizei Präsident von Vlore zur Prominenz des Berisha, Bujar Nishani Polizei Banditen aus Tropoje, Pukes, und Kukes. Es erinnert an Sokol Kociu, der als Polizei Präsient von Vlore, mit Ferdinand Durda, Berballa festgenommen, weil man mit eigenem Frachtschiff „Privileg“, dem mit 4 Mercury Motoren (a 250 HP) Schnell Boot „SIA“, 8 Tonnen Kokain nach Europa brachte. Damals funktionierte noch die Justiz, in wichtigen Teilen: Das kriminelle Enterprise der Ex-General Staatsanwältin Ina Rama mit: Sokol Malaj, Paskal Nesturi und Kollegen

Heute Abend wurde er mit 5 Kugeln hingerichtet. Das waren alles Banditen, die man nur in Lokalen sah, mit Kriminellen zusammen, irgendwelche Geschäfte zu organisieren und immer illegal herumbauen. Eigene Clubs, Bordelle, Frauen und Drogen Handel, wo die Polizei Eskorte fuhr bei Treibstoff und Drogen Schmuggel, war der reale US und EU Polizei Aufbau ab 2008 wieder. Details waren Original abrufbar, auch bei wikileaks und höchsten Polizei Bildergebnis für erzen brecaniDirektoren, nur die korrupten OSCE, EU Gestalten ignorierten die Fakten. Er Sicherheits Chef, für eine der Betrugs Universitäten in Tirana, dem „Wilson“ Institut, Schule.

Verantwortlich für den hoch kriminellen Laden aus Tropoje, Kukes, Pukes: vor der „Sigurime“ Mann: Bujar Nishani, der Vernichter der Polizei und Justiz, der sich Staatspräsident schimpft. Ein Freund von Alex Hajdari, ebenso Tropoje, Hirnlos und in höchsten Polizei Direktoren Ämtern.

Burime nga policia kanë bërë të ditur se, ngjarja ka ndodhur në një moment kur ai ka qenë duke ecur në këmbë. Ai është qëlluar me 5 plumba, poshtë pallatit ku jetonte së bashku me familjen e tij.

Cuku ka qenë vetëm kur është qëlluar nga persona ende të paidentifikuar.

Ai ka rënë në tokë, ndërsa atentatorët e tij që besohet se janë vrasës me pagesë, për shkak të dinamikës së kësaj ngjarje të rëndë.

Dyshohet se ka qenë vetëm një person që e ka qëlluar atë.

Die Finanz- Geldwäsche Betrugs Mafia, für die Internationalen Terrorismus, Drogen-, Waffen Kartelle: Levin Holle und Wolfgang Schäuble schon wieder

Geldwäsche und Betrugs Paradies Deutschland und so geht es weiter und werden Kriege organisiert, die Welt Eroberung mit Mord und Betrug zum System und auch von Frau von der Leyen, mit vielen Lügen verkauft.

Wie ausgebildete Profi Betrüger wie Levin Holle, früher bei der Betrugs Consult: Boston Consult, welche die Weltweit grössten Betrügereien organisierte wie ENRON, Worldcom, heute das Erpressungs- Betrugs System der Finanz Mafia, als Nachfolger des Verbrechers Josef Ackermann und Jörg Asmussen (SPD) organisieren, mitgestalten als zuständiger Abteilungsleiter im Finanzministerium. Eine lange Karriere, in der Betrugs Consult Boston Consult, mit Millionen Honorar, nachdem Landesbanken abgewickelt werden musste, welche zuvor von identischen Gestalten, gezielt in Betrugs Operationen getrieben wurden. Identische Gestalten, ohne reale Firmen und Banken Berufserfahrung, gab es überall bei den Landesbanken plötzlich mit Hilfe der von Ganstern übernommen SPD und heute die EZB sogar. Wolfgang Schäuble ist bekanntlich gut dokumentiert vollkommen korrupt, seine Tochter erhielt einen der wichtigsten Posten bei der ARD: Der Verwaltungsrat des SWR unter dem Vorsitz des Landtagsabgeordneten Ulrich Müller (CDU) berief Christine Strobl zum 1. Februar 2011 schließlich zur Fernsehfilmchefin des Senders. Im Juli 2012 wurde Strobl Programmgeschäftsführerin der ARD-Einkaufs- und Produktionstochter Degeto Film in Frankfurt am Main.

Seniorpartner in Berlin bei BCG

Seit Ende 2007 leitete Holle das Berliner Büro der Boston Consulting Group, dem etwa 150 Mitarbeiter angehören. In dieser Funktion half er bei der Sanierung und dem Verkauf der Landesbank Berlin. Seitdem gilt er als enger Vertrauter von Hans-Jürgen Vetter, dem damaligen Chef der Landesbank Berlin und dem heutigen Chef der Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW). Diese ist eine der größten Kunde Holles gewesen.[1]

Tätigkeit im Finanzministerium

Im Dezember 2011 wurde bekannt, dass Holle künftig im Bundesfinanzministerium die Abteilung Finanzmarktpolitik leiten soll (diese ist zuständig für Reformen von Finanzmarktregulierung und Finanzaufsicht, sowie für das Schuldenwesen des Bundes und die Deutsche Bundesbank[5]) Seit dem Sommer des Jahres wurde nach einen geeigneten Stellenbesetzung gesucht.[6] Angesichts der Tatsache, dass Holles Jahresgehalt von mehr als einer Mio Euro auf etwa 125.000 Euro sinken wird, stellt sich die Frage, welche Motivation Holle zu diesem neueFrau von der Leyen,n Posten treibt. Immerhin gilt der Posten auch deswegen als attraktiv, weil sich dort gute Kontakte zur Finanzindustrie in Deutschland und weltweit aufbauen lassen, die für einen Wiedereinstieg in die Privatwirtschaft hilfreich sein könnten.[1]

Frau von der Leyen,

Mario Draghi, diverse Deutsche Bank Manager, Jörg Asmussen sind nur Musterbeispiele, wie Berufs Betrüger, fast immer auch vollkommen inkompetend, das Geldwesen organisieren, sich als Berater aufspielen, bis zu Peter Sutherland, der das Umvolkungs Programm von Goldman & Sachs verkaufen wollte in Europa und Deutschland mit Hilfe korrupter Gangster wie Frank Walter Steinmeier. Bei der EZB verschwinden Billiarden für die faulen Kredite der Banken- und Finanz Mafia, aber irgendjemand muss das Geld ja haben. Und dann dieser Josef Ackermann, der heute bei den Geldwäsche Banken in Zypern die wichtigste Rolle spielt, ebenso Berater der Angela Merkel, wie Debelius auch ein Null gelernter Banker.

Aber Marketing Ausbildung, oder als Sozialarbeiter.

Unternehmensberater als Abteilungsleiter

So berief Wolfgang Schäuble 2011 den Anwalt Levin Holle zum Chef der einflussreichen Abteilung für Finanzmarktpolitik. Holle leitete zuvor als Seniorpartner das Berliner Büro der Unternehmensberatung Boston Consulting Group.

Ebenjene Beratungsfirma hatte 2004 im Auftrag des Finanzministeriums ein Gutachten erstellt, das ganz im Sinne der großen Banken empfahl, die Politik solle günstige Rahmenbedingungen schaffen, um „leistungsgestörte Kredite“ verbriefen zu können – oder mit anderen Worten: faule Kredite im großen Stil an den Börsen zu verkaufen. Kreditverbriefungen, also durch unsichere Kreditforderungen „besicherte“ Wertpapiere, pumpten die Spekulationsblase weiter auf, bevor es 2008 zum Crash kam.

Führende Banken hatten sich zuvor, 2004, zu einem Lobbyverband namens „True Sale International“ zusammengeschlossen, um Kreditverbriefungen in Deutschland zu etablieren. Zum Beirat dieser Lobbygruppe gehörte seit der Gründung auch ein Vertreter des Finanzministeriums. Die Behörde agierte dabei weniger als Kontrolleur, denn als wohlwollender Mitspieler.

Zunächst übernahm den Beiratsposten Abteilungsleiter Jörg Asmussen, der in einem Aufsatz von 2006 die riskanten Verbriefungen persönlich empfahl und ankündigte, sein Ministerium werde den Banken in diesem Zusammenhang „keine unnötigen Prüf- und Dokumentationspflichten“ vorschreiben. Asmussen machte in der Folge große Karriere, erst als Staatssekretär im Finanzministerium, dann im Direktorium der EZB, seit 2016 schließlich als „Managing Director“ der Privatbank Lazard.

Die Funktion von Asmussen im Finanzministerium übernimmt seit einigen Jahren nun mehr oder weniger der erwähnte Levin Holle von der Boston Consulting Group, die mit ihrer geschilderten Beratungstätigkeit eher Teil des Problems als der Lösung sein dürfte. In einem Zeitungsinterview erläuterte Holle 2016:

Would You Pay $103,000 for This Arizona Fixer-Upper?

That Was Ms. Halterman’s Mortgage on It; ‚Unfit for Human Occupancy,‘ City Says

AVONDALE, Ariz. — The little blue house rests on a few pieces of wood and concrete block. The exterior walls, ravaged by dry rot, bend to the touch. At some point, someone jabbed a kitchen knife into the siding. The condemnation notice stapled to the wall says: „Unfit for human occupancy.“

See photos of Ms. Halterman’s former house.

The story of the two-bedroom, one-bath shack on West Hopi Street, is the story of this year’s financial panic, told in 576 square feet. It helps explain how a series of bad decisions can add up to the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

Less than two years ago, Integrity Funding LLC, a local lender, gave a $103,000 mortgage to the owner, Marvene Halterman, an unemployed woman with a long list of creditors and, by her own account, a long history of drug and alcohol abuse. By the time the house went into foreclosure in August, Integrity had sold that loan to Wells Fargo & Co., which had sold it to a U.S. unit of HSBC Holdings PLC, which had packaged it with thousands of other risky mortgages and sold it in pieces to scores of investors.

Today, those investors will be lucky to get $15,000 back. That’s only because the neighbors bought the house a few days ago, just to tear it down.

Banken, Schattenbanken, Zombiebanken

Wer ist eigentlich politisch für das Finanzdesaster verantwortlich? Die Nation blickt in den Abgrund von staatlichem Aufsichtsversagen.
Ein Kommentar von Heribert Prantl

………………………….

Es ist ein Versagen der staatlichen Aufsicht. Sowohl die Bundesbank als auch die Bafin, die Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht, haben gewußt, dass es die Zweckgesellschaften gibt. Man hat das System der Schatten- und Zombiebanken geduldet, weil man darauf vertraute, es würde schon irgendwie gut gehen. War es bewußte Fahrlässigkeit? Bedingter Vorsatz?

Dummes Zeug, wird erarbeitet und verbreitet auch rund um Geldwäsche, obwohl jedes Gesetz fehlt, wie in Italien, das die Beweislast für Bargeld, Banken Vermögen, Immobilien Vermögen und deren Erwerb bei dem Beschuldigten liegen muss wie in Italien, woher er derartige Vermögen hat.
