Rigorous Intuition on Milosevic' Death

Jeff Wells (Rigorous Intuition) has a new piece up about some of the loose ends in the prison death of Slobodan Milosevic over the weekend.

Excerpt:

Milosevic sought the testimony of Bill Clinton, and he would have seized the moment to expose the deep politics that saw al Qaeda operate as an overt strategic ally of American interests in the Balkans war. Bin Laden himself visited Albania in 1994 and sent units to fight in Kosovo alongside the KLA. The convergence of interest in the Balkans for al Qaeda and the United States was only superficially religious and political. It was narco-criminal.

(...)


In the opening statement of his trial, Milosevic said:


In 1998 when Holbrooke visited us in Belgrade, we told him the information we had at our disposal, that in Northern Albania the KLA is being aided by Osama bin Laden, that he was arming, training, and preparing the members of this terrorist organization in Albania. However, they decided to cooperate with the KLA and indirectly, therefore, with bin Laden, although before that he had bombed the embassies in Kenya and Tanzania [and] had already declared war.

Boy o boy did Milo have the goods on the Clinton Admin. Hell, a big part of his reason at trying to force things from unraveling was to keep Washington happy.

Holbrooke sleeps tight tonite knowing Milo is finally shut the fuck up. Good riddance I say - but will someone please shut Holbrooke the fuck up and get his talking meathead off of my CNN!

Were you surprised when Holbrooke went straight from government to the highest levels at Credit Suisse First Boston?

I sure wasn't.

People around Washington genuflect when he walks around in G-town.

He strikes me as a pussy and that means something close to sissy according to my Meatballian thesaurus.

CSFB you say....hmmm, smells like a sissy's bank to me. Lots of shady Eurodollars find their way there too.

R U kiddin me...genuflect in G-ville?!

Pussy probably. Not a sissy.

He shot the late Peter Jennings out of the saddle, snatching Poor Peter's wife Kati Marton's snatch before the ink was very dry on their divorce. Perhaps way before.

Genuflecting in awe of the great man in symbolic terms only. No actual genuflecting ever occurs in G-town--it is home to a Catholic school after all.
