Holbrooke's Little Helpers
In the latter phases of Yugoslavia's Civil War there were an unusually large number of reports from Kosovo alleging Albanian harvesting and trafficking of organs from Serb prisoners. It long seemed to me that, although there was insufficient evidence to be certain, the circumstantial evidence was strong and merited serious investigation. Coincidentally with Holbrooke's death, we now have a report from Dick Marty, an EU human rights investigator, that lays out the details. How long will it take historians to conclude that America's Kosovar-Albanian clients are one of the most barbaric criminal gangs in the world? And why, I wonder, is it so difficult to find a photograph of Richard Holbrooke and Hashim Thaci together?
