<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">For more than a decade the media snow job on Kosovo has been remarkably uniform: Serbs bad, Kosovars good.

According to conventional wisdom, the Serbs attempted genocide against the Albanians in Kosovo, who were innocent victims until they became valiant freedom fighters with the help of the United States Air Force. This fairy tale is remarkably resilient, and has enjoyed bipartisan support in the United States for the last eleven years. Back in 1999 there were a few dissenting voices among American conservatives, but they never came close to dislodging the mainstream message: the evil Serbs got what was coming to them.

I remember reading detailed investigative reports about the KLA back in 1999, and that’s when it became obvious that we were on the wrong side. It was clear that we were pushing for the establishment of a well-armed Saudi-bankrolled gangster state in the Balkans, and that is exactly what we got.

Now the chickens have finally come home to roost. Someone in the European establishment obviously had second thoughts about Kosovo, and has allowed a devastating report to escape from the Council of Europe. What used to be a paranoid fringe theory — that Kosovar gangsters were systematically harvesting human organs and selling them on the black market — now has the imprimatur of a respectable rapporteur at the CoE.

The alleged ringleader of this ghastly criminal enterprise is none other than Kosovar prime minister Hashim Thaçi, known to his detractors as the “Snake”. Balkan Studies has a detailed report:

Hashim Thaçi, Kosovo’s Organ Trafficking Boss

by James George Jatras

The Council of Europe’s rapporteur Dick Marty has accused Hashim Thaçi, Kosovo’s self-styled “prime minister,” of heading a mafia-like operation that included murdering captives, mainly Serbs, to sell their organs on the black market. But will it matter? asks James Jatras.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>One can’t help but wonder how many times we have to be hit over the head before it begins to sink in that America’s intervention in Kosovo was based on a pack of lies from the start. The “accepted” narrative of Kosovo as the great success story parades under the headline: U.S. and NATO Allies Nobly Stepped in to Stop Genocide by Evil Serbs. The reality was U.S. Dragged NATO Allies Kicking and Screaming Into Support for Muslim Mafia Committing Genocide Against Christian Serbs.</span>

Comes now the Council of Europe’s human rights investigator Dick Marty with damning accusations that Hashim Thaçi, a/k/a Gjarpër (“Snake“), currently masquerading as “prime minister” of the illegal separatist administration in Pristina, heads a “mafia-like” operation that included murdering captives, mainly Serbs, to sell their organs on the black market. Is even that ghoulish revelation enough to force a reconsideration of the preening self-justification of a “humanitarian” intervention most Americans have long since forgotten? We can hope. But did the plotted attack on Fort Dix changes any minds? No. Now we have organ trafficking. Let’s remember the organ-trafficking story first broke over two years ago and seemed to be withering away in the face of brazen stonewalling by “authorities” in Pristina and Tirana (with full backing from Washington, of course.)

Release of Mr. Marty’s report, just as Thaçi is claiming victory in Kosovo’s recent elections, suggests that somebody in Europe wants to jump off this bandwagon to disaster. But for Americans, the question is: How horrible do the facts need to be before we start looking behind the curtain to see what our government is so desperate to conceal?

In the unfortunate partisan myopia that plagues American politics, some of my fellow conservatives might be tempted to blame it on Bill Clinton and leave it at that. Of course, it was largely a “Clinton problem” back during the 1999 NATO war against Serbia. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>To their credit, most Congressional Republicans voted against the war, which our Razorback Rommel illegally launched even though the House of Representatives had voted down the authorization to use military force.</span> But while Republicans mainly voted No, the neoconservative establishment was whipping up support for the Clinton White House. Unfortunately, with neocon domination of the George W. Bush administration’s foreign policy, and their desperation to win Islamic friends after 9/11, the Bush policy on Kosovo was even more Clinton than Clinton, leading to the decision to try to force the issue of Kosovo’s independence in violation of every principle of international law and national sovereignty.

So, what will Washington do now about “our” guy Thaçi? Do a Google Image search for his name with almost any top U.S. figure of either party you can think of and <span style='font-size: 11pt'>you’ll see him in a warm handshake, often a chummy embrace with a virtual Who’s Who of the American establishment: George W. Bush, Condi Rice, Bill Gates, Clinton (both of them), Joseph Biden, Madeleine Albright, Wesley Clark, etc.</span> (See “Snake and Friends“ at the end of this message.) One would like to think some one of these worthies would now have the decency to say (even if only in virtuous hypocrisy), “What? I didn’t know! I’d never have supported these guys if I had!” <span style='font-size: 14pt'>But the problem is, even aside from these organ-trafficking peccadilloes, the U.S. establishment did know — from Day One — that Thaçi and Co. (the “Kosovo Liberation Army,” KLA) were a bunch of thugs. So did the intelligence services of our allies. (And make no mistake — it’s not just Thaçi. If Thaçi needs to be dumped, we can guess that “Plan B” will be to install in his place another of his equally vicious KLA colleagues.) They — our government — knew the KLA were criminals running the drug, slave, and weapons rackets throughout Europe. They knew the KLA was supported by Osama bin Laden (with whom Thaçi met personally in Tirana in 1998 to plan the jihad in Kosovo, according to the former head of Albanian intelligence), the Iranians, the Saudis, the Turks, and other supporters of an Islamic re-re-conquest of the Balkans. And we supported them anyway, shredding every rule of law and decency in the process.</span> Now what? In all probability, circle the wagons, hope it will blow over, and keep twisting arms around the world in support of the illegal separatist terrorist entity “KosovA.” ...

Go over to Balkan Studies for more, including numerous photos of respectable world leaders being very, very friendly with Hashim Thaçi.</div></div>

The Clintonista's DIRTY SECRET (http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2010/12/snake-of-kosovo.html) ... that Billy Jeff used US military power to back forces allied with Bin Laden and AQ ... as well as refusing to bring UBL to justice when he had the chance.

Let the truth be told.

We are into the third US regime that has backed this thugocracy.

We do know that the MSM will not report any story that makes their hero look bad but I would still like to see some additional support for this. Coincidentally, I did see a related story about a British journalist/gadfly Auberon Waugh wanting to get the then PM Tony Blaire arrested for lies surrounding their involvement in this same conflict.

It is a shame, as we see so often here on this forum, that the truth is well hidden under the PC covers, and it is very difficult to see through. It is a shame that we cannot take at face value the stories that appear in the MSM, knowing of the political agenda that slants them.

As a philosophy major in school, I know that searching for the Truth was/is a major impetus for much of human understanding but that is a search conducted by people of integrity not the sort of search where the truth is purposefully hidden by disingenuous reporting. The honest search for truth now seems different in kind from the great truth seekers of the past. The truth seems now to be irrelevant in the quest for power in virtually every field.

Where does a world without truth lead us? Solipsism? An interesting thought experiment.

Follow the links within the links. The Euros are finally figuring out that they were had on the deal.

The US far left, as noted, will deny Billy Jeff's treachery to their last breath.

I'll never forget that they released photos at the time that showed a room where people were supposedly clubbed to death in Kosovo ... and the MSM never questioned why they would import expensive "LOUISVILLE SLUGGER" baseball bats, as shown in the photo, from Hillerich & Bradsby to club people to death with.
