Special series on Srebrenica in answer to the lies spread about the Serbs by the Imperialist Media, and by many writers in the Media. We start off with this Guardian Report (The Guardian is not friendly to Milosevic and the Serbs so its report therefore has got added significance). The report shows links between US and EU Intelligence and Islamofascism
Official Dutch report says that Pentagon broke UN embargo

US intelligence agencies secretly broke a UN arms embargo during the 1991-1995 war in the former Yugoslavia by channelling arms through Islamist jihad groups that Washington is now hunting down across Europe and Asia, according to evidence from the Netherlands.The evidence surfaced in a hitherto unnoticed section (my emphasis FQ) of the official Dutch report into the 1995 Srebrenica massacre that led to the fall of the Dutch government and the resignation last week of its army chief.
The Dutch report reveals how the Pentagon formed a secret alliance with Islamist groups in an Iran-Contra-style operation. (showing that this cannot be taken in isolation, people should at least study the Iran-Contra operation, but I think also the massacre of Indonesian Communists with direct involvement of the CIA, who drew up the lists, as they have done in dozens of such situations all around the globe…FQ)
US, Turkish and Iranian intelligence groups worked with the Islamists in what the Dutch report calls the “Croatian pipeline”. Arms bought by Iran and Turkey and financed by Saudi Arabia were flown into Croatia initially by the official Iranian airline, Iran Air, and later in a fleet of black C-130 Hercules aircraft.
The report says that mojahedin fighters were also flown in, and that the US was “very closely involved” in the operation which was in flagrant breach of the embargo. British secret services obtained documents proving that Iran also arranged deliveries of arms directly to Bosnia, it says.
The operation was promoted by the Pentagon, rather than the CIA, which was cautious about using Islamist groups as a conduit for arms, and about breaching the embargo. When the CIA tried to place its own people on the ground in Bosnia, the agents were threatened by the mojahedin fighters and the Iranians who were training them.
The UN relied on American intelligence to monitor the embargo, a dependency which allowed Washington to manipulate it at will. (The UN is anti Serb and anti Jewish…FQ)
Last month, the US seized a number of Muslims in Bosnia whom it claimed had links with Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaida network. They were arrested in defiance of the Bosnian courts.
The contents of the section of the Dutch report entitled Intelligence and the War in Bosnia, 1992-1995, are revealed in an article in today’s Guardian by Richard Aldrich, professor of politics at the university of Nottingham and a leading expert on intelligence operations.
He also reveals that the secret services of Ukraine, Greece and Israel were busy arming the Bosnian Serbs. Mossad, Israel’s secret service, was particularly active, concluding a substantial arms deal with the Bosnian Serbs at Pale in return for the safe passage of the Jewish population of Sarajevo, the Bosnian capital, Prof Aldrich says.
