Comments by Jared Israel, plus Further Reading.
[Originally Posted 10 July 2001. Posted with new comments, 16 March 2003]

The media is now praising Zoran Djindjic, the recently assassinated Serbian politician, as a great democrat and leader of the 'independent' anti-Milosevic opposition. But two years ago a German magazine wrote that the U.S. and Germany made the opposition's decisions & paid the bills!

The last article contains very revealing source material.

Why is Zalmay Khalilzad the U.S. 'Envoy' to Afghanistan and the Iraqi opposition?

Oops! Two corrections. 1) We wrote, 'Before coming to U.S. intelligence, Indyk was deputy chief of Australian intelligence.' Martin Indyk's correct title was, 'Deputy Director of Current Intelligence for the Middle East.' 2) We wrote, 'Congressman Rohrabacher made the charge that in the late 1980s the State Department used treachery to help the Taliban.' The time period involved was of course the late 1990s.

Does the U.S. have an 'Iranian Strategy'?

Iran Allegedly Sends
5000 Troops Into Northern Iraq
By Guy Dinmore
With comments by Jared Israel

[Posted 20 February 2003]

CORRECTION: As originally posted, the above article contained the typo that "5000 Iranian troops" had allegedly invaded northern Iraq. It should have read "5000 Iranian-backed troops." The article has been revised with new material, including on the SCIRI, the Iran-linked Iraqi exile organization involved in the alleged invasion, and more discussion of the odd character of the 'proposed' war.

"Witness To Jasenovac's Hell"

At the opening ceremonies of the Holocaust Museum in Washington in 1993, Croatian President Franjo Tudjman was an honored guest. This is remarkable. Tudjman was a Holocaust denier, a Serbophobe and an apologist for the Croatian clerical fascists known as Ustashas.

During World War II, the Ustashas set up Jasenovac, the first Nazi death camp in Europe. An Associated Press dispatch commented that Tudjman had written: "...the 'main characteristics' of Jews were 'selfishness, craftiness, unreliability, miserliness, underhandedness and secrecy."'

AP also reported that: "...Naomi Paiss, communications director for the museum, said the State Department recommended that Tudjman, as a democratically elected leader, be given an invitation." (AP, 21/4/93)

No representative of the Serbian people was permitted to take part in the Holocaust Museum opening. Pres. Clinton and Elie Wiesel both spoke, implicitly comparing the Serbs to Nazis. Clinton threatened war.

And while the Serbs, who had died alongside the Jews at Josenovac, were being denounced and threatened with slaughter at the opening of a Museum of the Holocaust, none of the speakers denounced the presence of Mr. Tudjman.

Why not? Is it because the dead lack clout? If so, it is not for want of numbers. As many as a million people (Serbs, Jews, Gypsies and Partisans) were slaughtered at Croatia's Jasenovac death camp by Mr. Tudjman's friends, slaughtered with such brutality that even the Nazis expressed shock.

Lest we forget, the camp was named JASENOVAC. Emperor's Clothes has 30 copies of the excellent book, "Witness to Jasenovac's Hell".

Press Conference Confirmation:

In the article, "Bush Gets Tangled in his 9-11 Lies, Part 1: A Strange White House Press Conference," we analyzed Ari Fleischer's 'press gaggle' the evening of Sept. 11th. In it, Mr. Fleischer flatly contradicted later statements by Pres. Bush regarding when he learned a terrorist attack was underway. We found the transcript of the gaggle on a search engine that does not provide Internet links. However, one of our ever-vigilant readers has located it at the following link:
