The German intelligence agency BND conducted a recent investigation into Thaçi and his regime and concluded that “the key players (including Thaçi) are involved in interlinkages between politics, business and organized crime structures in Kosovo.”
To put it bluntly, Kosovo is a narco-criminal enterprise.
A separate report conducted for the Council of Europe had a far more sinister overtone. It implicated Thaçi and the former KLA commanders of such heinous crimes as human organ trafficking. Innocent victims — both ethnic Serbian and Albanian — were allegedly executed for the purpose of harvesting their organs on the black market. Continue reading
The indictment is for a range of crimes against humanity and war crimes, including murder, enforced disappearance, persecution and torture. It says the group is criminally responsible for nearly 100 murders, and notes that the victims were Serbs, Kosovo Albanians and other ethnicities, and included political opponents.
Wednesday’s statement makes it clear that the pre-trial judge had not yet confirmed the charges, but the prosecutor’s office said it was taking the unusual step of making the charges public before that point because of Thaçi’s repeated efforts to “obstruct and undermine” the court’s work.

Like a political cult’s fantasy park, a 10-foot statue of a waving Bill Clinton leers over Bill Clinton Boulevard not far from the Hillary clothing boutique. A metal bust of President Clinton’s former secretary of state, Madeleine Albright, lurks in the park nearby. Out of town, near an American military base, a 20-mile stretch of road is named after Joe Biden’s late son. A congressman from the Bronx, Eliot Engel, not only got his own boulevard but earned his face on a postage stamp.
It sounds like a freak show for The Swamp, and it’s real. All made possible with $2 billion of the American taxpayers’ money. Add an extra big bill for American troops there — not to protect the place from foreign invaders or to secure American vital interests — but to keep the locals from killing one another. The freak show is called Kosovo. ~ J. Michael Waller Continue reading
One of the most influential contemporary historians and professor at Yale University, Samuel Moyn, says that during the bombing of Yugoslavia, he worked at the White House as an intern and “planted” stories that were published in the Washington Post.
In recent years Albania, which is notoriously corrupt, was allowed to join NATO. 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. Continue reading
Forest inspector Nazmi Rustemi, whose body was found a month ago near Lake Badovac, was a protected witness for the Special Prosecution Office at the Special Court for the Prosecution of Crimes of Members of the Former So-called the KLA. Continue reading
“…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
“A documentary produced by a Dutch television crew alleges Florin Krasniqi, an Albanian arms dealer, is buying weapons in the US and sending them to Kosovo – while perfecting contacts with the Democratic Party in the United States.”
Mr Krasniqi is filmed at a Kerry fundraising event handing over a cheque, then chatting and joking with senior Democrats including Wesley Clark, the former NATO commander and Richard Holbrooke, Mr Kerry’s senior foreign policy adviser. Continue reading
“The intelligence reports document what is described as a “link” between bin Laden, the fugitive Saudi millionaire, and the KLA [Albanian “Kosovo Liberation Army”] –including a common staging area in Tropoje, Albania, a center for Islamic terrorists. The reports said bin Laden’s organization, known as al-Qaeda, has both trained and financially supported the KLA.
Many border crossings into Kosovo by “foreign fighters” also have been documented and include veterans of the militant group Islamic Jihad from Bosnia, Chechnya and Afghanistan…
Jane’s International Defense Review, a highly respected British Journal, reported in February that documents found last year on the body of a KLA member showed that he had escorted several volunteers into Kosovo, including more than a dozen Saudi Arabians. Each volunteer carried a passport identifying him as a Macedonian Albanian.” Continue reading
