“We outwitted three big Jewish organizations – B’Nai Brith Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Committee, and the American Jewish Congress.” – James Harff (Director of Ruder Finns’s Global Public affairs section)
In recent years Albania, which is notoriously corrupt, was allowed to join NATO. By allowing its illegal annexation of the Serbian province of Kosovo would effectively bring it into NATO as well, circumventing international law paving the way for another attack on the Serbian people.
“…UNMIK head Harri Holkeri stated that Albanian extremists “had a ready-made plan” for the violence.62 During his March 22 visit to Kosovo, NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer described the “unacceptable” violence as “orchestrated and organized by extremist factions in the Albanian community.” …
Admiral Gregory Johnson, the commander of NATO forces for Southern Europe, a command which includes the NATO-led KFOR troops in Kosovo, stated that there was a “modicum of organization” behind the violence and described the violence as “essentially amount[ing] to ethnic cleansing.”65 In his report to the U.N. Security Council, Secretary-General Kofi Annan stated that “the onslaught led by Kosovo Albanian extremists against the Serb, Roma and Ashkali communities of Kosovo was an organized, widespread, and targeted campaign.”66
In fact, even before Bill Clinton was looking to cash in on Hillary’s position as Secretary of State with his Iranian wartime collaborators in the Bosnia, a bipartisan effort was afoot–supported by George Soros, Ron Paul, Grover Norquist, Keith Ellison, and the Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR among others–to launch a campaign to “send …
The war in Balkan and beginning of Iran’s influence
Iranians put their feet on the ground in Bosnia and Herzegovina just six months after the war had started. Iran sent thousands of its IRGC fighters as staff members of Iran’s Red Crescent. This was confessed by brigadier Saeed Kasemy, a field commander in Bosnia and Herzegovina at that time. On June 2, 1994, the Washington Times wrote that 400 fighters of IRGC entered Bosnia in May of 1994, according to intelligence sources.
At that time, some intelligence sources reported that 3,000-4,000 fighters of IRGC were based in Bosnia in addition to 400 fighters of the Lebanese Hezbollah.
Introduction: Promoting Iranian Influence in Bosnia
Although many details await a truthful accounting from the White House, the main outlines of the Administration’s Iran-Bosnia policy were laid out in The Los Angeles Times’ April 4, 1996 report breaking the story:
“President Clinton secretly gave a green light to covert Iranian arms shipments into Bosnia in 1994 despite a United Nations arms embargo that the United States was pledged to uphold and the Administration’s own policy of isolating Tehran globally as a supporter of terrorism, according to senior Administration officials and other sources. Two top U.S. diplomats, acting on instructions from the White House and the State Department, told Croatian President Franjo Tudjman in early 1994 that the United States would not object to the creation of an arms pipeline that would channel the weapons through Croatia and into Bosnia-Herzegovina….after consultations with National Security Adviser Anthony Lake and Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott….The operation continued until January of this year, even after nearly 20,000 American troops began to be deployed as peacekeepers in Bosnia, Clinton Administration officials said.”
“When French commandos stormed an isolated chalet in Bosnia on February 15, 1996, they found a terrorist training center replete with sniper rifles, rocket launchers, and explosives disguised as children’s toys. Later that month, IFOR arrested three Iranians manning this terrorist camp.
And Iran’s influence is not limited to Iranians coming to Bosnia. The New York Times on March 3, 1996 quoted a senior European military officer as stating that his government had evidence that Bosnia sent troops to Iran. He rightly suggested that ideological indoctrination represented an even bigger threat to the West than the technical training those troops received.”
