“The intelligence reports document what is described as a “link” between bin Laden, the fugitive Saudi millionaire, and the KLA –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….
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.
Bin Laden and his military commander, Mohammed Atef, were named in a federal indictment handed up in November in New York for the simultaneous explosions Aug. 7 at the U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania…
State Department officials labeled the KLA a terrorist organization, saying it bankrolled its operations with proceeds from the heroin trade and from loans from known terrorists like bin Laden Continue reading

“In Pancevo the second time plants of the chemical industry were bombed. Biting smoke makes breathing difficult. The Municipal Information Office advises citizens to leave their homes with only a gas mask or protect their eyes and airways with cloth soaked in bicarbonate. Huge columns of smoke waft into the sky and are easily recognizable from the capital of Belgrade, which is around 15 kilometers away. The on-site visit reveals the whole dimension of the destruction. The Asoterra factory is completely out of service. Toxic vapors pour from broken lines, you can still see the heavy smoke clouds of the also bombed oil refinery. For thirty-seven years, fertilizer for agriculture was produced at the plants, explains Asoterra’s director Miralem Dzindo to representatives of the international press .” Continue reading
“In 1941, after Adolf Hitler created a Greater Albania, Kosovar Albanian Muslim political leader Dzafer Deva from Kosovska Mitrovica declared: “The freedom has come. Yugoslavia is no more. The Greater Albania has been created. Serbs ought to be expelled from the Balkans or killed.” The Kosovo crisis was always about separatism and secession.
From 1981 to 1989, an estimated 20,000 Kosovo Serbs were driven out from Kosovo. Many were settled in refugee camps in Belgrade. Kaludjerica, near Belgrade, was a town settled by Serbian refugees from Kosovo in the 1980s. Kosovo Serbs were murdered, raped, beaten, attacked, and terrorized to leave their homes and property in Kosovo. Serbian churches, gravestones, cemeteries, and religious and cultural and historical monuments were vandalized, desecrated, and destroyed. Serbian priests and nuns were attacked, beaten, and abused. Why was this systematic, planned, and organized campaign of genocide against the Serbian Orthodox Christian population of Kosovo suppressed and censored in the US and the West?”
“The forms appear to be standard entry processing forms, with 23 sections including personal information, occupation and level of religious knowledge. The ISIS bureaucrats filling out the forms about the Kosovars also had a space to select the role new recruits would play in the so-called caliphate. The options include serving as a fighter at the front (‘mukatil’), serving as a suicide bomber (‘istishadi’), and the highest level, a fighter who does not expect to return home (‘Al-Inghmasi’)” Continue reading
“Based on DNA evidence at the scene in Livadice, it was determined that one of the potential culprits was Florim Ejupi. I asked that he and three other former KLA members be taken to UN detention where the investigation would continue. However, they were transferred to US camp Bondsteel, into the supposedly safest place in Kosovo, from where the Ejupi escaped,” said Karphamar.
It later emerged that Ejupi had been trained by the CIA, said the Swedish judge. Continue reading
“I was dealing with grave criminal cases in Kosovo. Quickly I realized that the Serbs did not have any chance of getting justice in the courts there. The Albanians who committed serious crimes against Serbs were being released, while many Serbs were sentenced without a fair trial.” – Cristar Karphamar, first UN judge appointed to Kosovo after the US-led NATO bombing of 1999 Continue reading
Rome – Mauro Del Vecchio, former General of Italian Army who led the unit of 7,000 soldiers that entered Kosovo in June of 1999 after end of NATO air strikes on Serbia told Italian ‘Panorama’ weekly that during the first three weeks of the mandate ‘reports on the found bodies of killed Serbs and Romas arrived on his table each morning’, but that was a taboo topic they were not allowed to speak about with journalists.
