LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Recognizing Kosovo at expense of U.S., Serbs
Question of the Day
We have humiliated, denigrated and dehumanized the Serbs, who were our allies in two world wars and rescued more than 500 downed American pilots in World War II at great sacrifice to themselves ("Kosovo cheers independence ruling," Friday, Page 1).
We need to examine the Kosovars with whom we are getting so cozy. Kosovar Prime Minister Hashim Thaci, a former leader of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), has been implicated by former chief prosecutor Carla del Ponte in the macabre harvesting of body parts of young Serbian soldiers. We have known since 1999 the terrorist connections of the KLA, when Washington Times reporter Jerry Seper wrote, "Some members of the Kosovo Liberation Army, which has financed its war effort through the sale of heroin, were trained in terrorist camps run by international fugitive Osama bin Laden."
According to Germany's Federal Intelligence Service, Mr. Thaci is one of three KLA kingpins running the Albanian mafia rackets in Kosovo.
For giving refuge to Kosovar Albanian refugees in 1999, America was rewarded with the attempted Fort Dix bombing. Four of the six terrorists involved were Albanians from the Kosovo region. One of the four plotters, Agron Abdullahu, was a former sniper in Kosovo, trained with the Egyptian military and admitted in 1999 as a Kosovar Albanian refugee.
If the Serbs ethnically cleansed Kosovar Albanians, as has been claimed, why do Kosovar Albanians make up more than 90 percent of the population and the Serbs, once the majority, less than 10 percent?
