Holbrooke's Little Helpers

War posterIn 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?

There is one, though the article accompanying it is in Albanian?

[Good catch! Thanks, g.]


Hashim Thaci, nicknamed "the snake" by his peers in the past...the US has pushed the "raison d'État" card way too far in the Balkans and that doesn't forgive in the age of information. We do have photographs of Ms. Albright with Mr. Thaci though...

[Your point is well taken. When Yugoslavia started falling apart the internet didn't really exist, at least not such that information online could trump the mainstream media, or that all sorts of information (text, video, etc.) could be easily retrieved by anyone. Though the conventional history hasn't yet been revised significantly, it's increasingly hazardous for anti-Serb zealots to make empty assertions. There are also some good photographs, btw, of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with Thaci. g.]
