- my take on Bill Clinton's War
Growing up, I gained
political knowledge of CIA atrocities from actually reading the
articles my dad's Playboy mags, but
I did not really begin
to become politically knowledgeable or sufficiently suspicious until the evening
11, 2001, when I read
that Afghan women had been fighting
for secular democracy, pleading for Western help, and warning the US
about the psychotic
I took Clinton at face
value on Kosovo. I was uncurious about the history. I never
really questioned what Clinton said, but I
casually wondered how American foreign policy had suddenly switched
gears from forming Latin American death
Reagan-Bush ... to
humanitarian bombing in Europe.
stories abound that the Islamic

I was gullible. I was so relieved,
that we finally got the CIA
(Bush) out of the White House, believing
we were done funding death squads, we had
removed the Iran-Contra conspirators
the President and VP lied, nobody was convicted of serious crimes like
treason for treachery of defying the Boland Amendment, everyone was
aquitted on minor legal technicalities, or pardoned, and the criminals

... and so that I thought
Clinton was a welcome relief, a breath of fresh air.

revelations that an Osama bin Laden terrorist
training camp is operating in the U.S.-controlled zone
of Kosovo, are only the tip of the iceberg. Now, in a
sort of ``Operation Truth,'' Macedonian and other sources
have begun to reveal publicly what until now had been known to
only a relatively small group of people, about the
narco-terrorist connections between the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA)
and the Taliban, and between these two groups and
high-level U.S. and British intelligence agencies. Operation Truth is
now affecting the strategic domain, provoking a
reevaluation of the conventional way of viewing
``international terrorism.'' The path leads to those strategists who
have used terrorism as a weapon of irregular warfare.

story of bin Laden's right-hand man, Ayman ``The Doctor'' Zawahiri, and the Balkan
activities of the latter's brother,
have shocked a large number of people.
How is it
possible that such a high-level official of the bin Laden gang is
able to run a training camp for the KLA near the Kosovo
village of Ropotovo, in the middle of an area controlled by
the United States? How is it possible that Zawahiri's
brother, as reliable sources report, was (and still reportedly
is) in charge of KLA operations in the KLA-occupied area
of neighboring Macedonia? How is it possible that the
Zawahiri-led gang of international mercenaries could
move, without any hindrance, from NATO-controlled
Kosovo into Macedonia?

week into the bombing campaign, there is widespread discussion of
options for further actions. One option includes forging a closer
relationship between the United States and a controversial group, the
Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), a group which has been cited in
unofficial reports for alleged ties to drug
cartels and Islamic terrorist organizations.
The Kosovo Liberation Army "began on the radical fringe of
Kosovar Albanian politics, originally made up of diehard
Marxist-Leninists (who were bankrolled in the old days by the Stalinist
dictatorship next door in Albania) as well as by descendants of the
fascist militias raised by the Italians in World War II"
Among the most troubling aspects of the Clinton Administration's
effective alliance with the KLA are numerous reports from reputable
unofficial sources -- including the highly respected Jane's
publications -- that the KLA is closely involved with:
* The extensive Albanian crime network that extends
throughout Europe and into North America, including allegations that a
major portion of the KLA finances are derived from that network, mainly
proceeds from drug trafficking; and
* Terrorist organizations motivated by the ideology
of radical Islam, including assets of Iran and of the notorious Osama
bin-Ladin -- who has vowed a global terrorist war against Americans and
(i can't remember where i copied this from, sorry)
to "The Washington Times," "The Canberra Times," (Australia) "The
Charleston Gazette," and numerous other publications, Osama Bin Laden
and co. were directly involved in pro-American "terrorist"
organizations in Bosnia, Kosovo, (KLA) and Macedonia -right up until the summer of 2001.
"But, one may protest, "this doesn't make sense. Why would
the U.S. military support anti-American movements?"

is believed to be connected with such fixtures of the Islamic terror
network as Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman (the convicted
mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing) and Osama Binladen, a wealthy Saudi emigre
believed to bankroll numerous militant groups.
Of course I
disagree with the conclusion, which says that Carter should have gone
to war to kill off the evil Sandinistas.
But the central
point of Clinton's "gross error" was collabortation with Al-Qaeda
forces, and massive aid to Islamic Fundamentalists.
