Clinton’s war in the former Yugoslavia started within days of his
taking office in 1993. In 1993, Croat and Bosnian Serbs, backed by the
Milosevic regime in Belgrade, were battling with Croat and Bosnia
Muslims. The war was dominated by a U.N. arms embargo against the
fractured Yugoslavia. No new weapons could get into the country to feed
the widening civil war. The arm embargo was strictly enforced by NATO
and the newly elected Clinton.
Initially, the Serbs were winning. They out-gunned the larger Croat
and Bosnian forces, because they were backed by tanks from their friend
in Belgrade, Milosevic.
Starting in 1993, the Croats and Bosnians suddenly acquired loads of
Chinese-made artillery and anti-tank rockets. The new arms arrived in
Bosnia on Iranian C-130 cargo planes, in violation of the NATO embargo.
The Iranian arms shipments were credited with stopping a major Serbian
offensive and costing Milosevic victory in the long war.
Ironically, the same weapons also cost former the Clinton National
Security advisor, Anthony Lake, his bid to be CIA Director. During
Senate hearings, Lake was forced to admit that the U.S. knew of the
Iranian arms flights and did nothing to stop them. Lake, who was then up
for the newly vacated CIA Directorship, admitted the misdeeds and
resigned in disgrace.
The sudden admission of a U.S./Iranian plot to arm the Muslims
strained relations and embarrassed the Clinton administration. European
allies and Russia had enforced the embargo with aircraft and naval
Yet, Iran did more than just send guns. Ali Fallahan, the top spy for
Iran, was also sent into Yugoslavia along with the Chinese-made AK-47s,
artillery and rocket launchers. Ali Fallahan was then head of the
Iranian Ministry of Intelligence and Security, or Vavak. Fallahan also
is known to preside over the Iranian overseas operations planning
committee. It is this committee that approves all Iranian sponsored
terrorist attacks abroad.
In 1996, the accidental discovery of a Vavak base in Bosnia by NATO
forces provided the hard evidence of Iranian actions and of Fallahan’s
activities. NATO troops found a treasure trove of advanced
communications and bugging devices from around the world purchased by
Fallahan. The equipment was quickly tracked back to each respective
supplier and thus the Germans re-constructed Fallahan’s travels.
Once in Europe, Fallahan drove anywhere he wanted, and frequently
did. It was during one stop in Germany that Fallahan helped set up the
assassination of Kurd rebel leaders exiled in Berlin.
Fallahan also masterminded a huge buy of German, Russian and Japanese
state-of-the-art listening devices, encryption and communications
equipment, which was shipped to Iran in 1994 and 1995. This equipment
was used to outfit both the Iranian and Bosnian intelligence services,
some of which was found by the NATO forces in the Bosnian Vavak raid.
In 1997, Fallahan was found guilty — in absentia — by the Germans
for the assassination of Kurdish leaders in Berlin. The discovery of
Fallahan, the advanced equipment, plans and hordes of Iranian spies on
Euro soil finally shocked western Europe into demanding Bosnia
disconnect itself from Tehran.
Today, while American airpower hurls itself on the suburbs of
Belgrade for CNN cameras, there is another war. The flashy shows of
missile strikes and stealth attacks being played out in the skies
dominate the press. The real dirty war in Kosovo is fought with an AK-47
or SKS rifle at close range.
The initial supply of guns for the KLA was taken from the armories of
the Yugoslavian and Albanian communist states as they disintegrated. The
first batch of local guns was not enough to sustain a war. The aging
equipment has since been re-enforced with brand new Chinese made rifles.
In the 1980s, the CIA combined with Middle Eastern heroin smugglers
and Chinese weapons makers to assist the Afghans during their long war
against the ex-Soviet Union. The dirty war in Afghanistan bred the CIA
trained, Saudi millionaire, Bin
Laden. Bin Laden fought the Soviets with U.S. and Chinese made
The KLA has rearmed using the same not-so-old religious connection
through the Iranians and Chinese arms smugglers. The KLA “Praise the
Lord and pass the ammunition” strategy includes drug smugglers well
known to the CIA and former
Albanian communists, now backing the KLA.
Two benefactors from Clinton’s dirty little war in Kosovo are Poly
Technologies and NORINCO, both arms firms owned by Chinese Generals.
Norinco SKS assault rifles currently grace the KLA forces operating
inside Kosovo. NBC and CNN have shown KLA rebels, armed with Chinese SKS
rifles and their distinctive, fixed, 10 round clip. You can see the same
SKS rifles in the well known picture of Clinton reviewing Chinese troops
in Tiananmen square on the cover of the book “Year of the Rat.”
Poly Tech is better known to the Clinton administration. Poly
Technologies was busted in 1996 by U.S. Customs agents posing as drug
dealers trying to buy a couple of AK-47s. The customs raid netted over
2,000 fully automatic AK-47s, hand grenades, anti-tank rockets and
shoulder fired surface-to-air (SAM) missiles. The Chinese arsenal was
hidden in a cargo container freshly unloaded from a COSCO (China Ocean
Shipping Company) ship, docked in Los Angeles.
The Poly Tech workers have all been released by the inept Reno Dept.
of Justice. Some fled the country and have returned to China. Following
the fiasco, Clinton officials issued a statement, saying the arms were
destined for “drug” dealers in the United States.
Poly Tech is also known to Janet Reno for another reason. Charlie
Trie and Poly Tech President Wang Jun met with Commerce Secretary Ron
Brown after donating over $50,000 to the DNC. In fact, Poly Tech
President Wang Jun met with Ms. General Reno’s boss, Mr. Clinton, inside
the White House just after that donation through Trie and Brown.
In April 1996, Secretary Brown lost his life in the former
Yugoslavia. Brown died in a plane crash just outside of Dubrovnik,
Croatia. Brown died along with a host of the highest and mightiest of
U.S. Corporate heads.
The death of the Secretary came as a blow to the White House and to
the criminal investigations of Ron Brown’s Commerce Dept. It was well
known that a Special Prosecutor was preparing heavy evidence of
corruption. Brown’s death stopped that investigation just before the
The blow to the White House was displayed by Clinton himself who
personally burst into tears at Ron’s funeral. Clinton had just stepped
out of his limo, laughing his guts out, when he noticed several TV
cameras were focused on him. It was then Clinton burst into the
“boo-hoos” for Brown.
However, another Commerce employee was involved in the fatal Croatia
trip. Ira Sockowitz, a DNC fundraiser, New York banker and co-worker of
John Huang at the Commerce Dept. was scheduled to fly into Cilipi
airport along with Brown. Curiously,
Sockowitz chose to leave ahead of Brown on an advance flight instead of
going with the Secretary on a flight packed with DNC fat-cats.
After the crash, Sockowitz was the man in Croatia that identified Ron
Brown’s body. Once he was safely back in D.C., Ira Sockowitz collected a
vast array of information on Bosnia and Croatia given to Ron Brown for
that last flight.
In August of 1996, Ira Sockowitz quietly took detailed bios of the
Bosnian and Croatian leaders out of the secured facility at the Commerce
Department to his new job at the Small Business Administration. These
secret documents would join a host of other classified material from the
Department of State, NSA, CIA, Commerce, Russia, and France. All hidden
in a personal safe just before the 1996 Presidential election.
There are many questions about that last fatal flight. For example,
there were several interesting companies represented on Brown’s trip
into Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik is an ex-Yugoslav submarine base and a few of
the dead had their own under-water kills.
For example, Stuart Tholan, President of Bechtel Corp., a well known
contractor to the CIA and a prime contractor on sub base building for
DOD. Another flyer was David Ford, President and Chief Executive Officer
for Interguard Corp., a company that provides high tech security guards
for Navy bases. Finally, there was Walter Murphy, Senior Vice President
for AT&T Submarine Systems Sub Communications Systems.
In July 1996, Secretary Kantor replaced Ron Brown and led a new
delegation of corporate contributors to Bosnia. The list of big
companies riding with Kantor is covered with blacked-out sections
withheld by the Commerce Dept. Some of those traveling with Kantor
include ABB, AT&T, Bechtel, Boeing, Enron, McDonalds, and Motorola.
In his televised attempt to explain the NATO airstrikes, Clinton
noted that there was some amount of money at stake in the crisis over
Kosovo. So far, the Pentagon estimated we have spent $500 million in
bombing Serbia. After the bombs, Clinton will propose a “re-building”
package of U.S. aid to repair the Serb Police HQ and all the bridges
destroyed by NATO forces. More billions to hand out as corporate pork.
Yet, while the bombs fall and the innocent victims die, liberal
lovers of Bill Clinton need to ask themselves, just what are we fighting
for? Is it to save the Kosovo people or to protect the profits of war?
