Cliff Kincaid points out some unpleasant truths about the U.S.’s ignorant and dhimmi foreign policy at AIM:
…Still another example of a foreign policy that is running out of gas is the meeting that took place in Washington, D.C. between Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and a former leader of a terrorist organization.
It got almost no attention from the media, but Rice met with Agim Ceku, the so-called Prime Minister of Kosovo. We say “so-called” because Kosovo is not a country-not yet. It is a province of Serbia that is now under occupation by foreign forces, including from the U.N. and NATO. Ceku is a former leader of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), the terrorist group that started a civil war that led to President Clinton ordering NATO intervention in the country on the pretext that he was stopping a “genocide” being committed by the Serbs.
Ceku, who was indicted by Serbia in 2002 for war crimes, is accused of responsibility for the murders by KLA terrorists of 669 Serbs and 18 members of other ethnic groups, 518 counts of inflicting serious bodily harm (including torture) and wounding, and 584 counts of abduction, many of the victims of which are presumed dead. Even after the end of hostilities between Serb forces and NATO, Ceku was accused of continuing attacks on Serbs, driving two-thirds of them from the province of Kosovo.
In meeting with Ceku, Rice was not only ignoring his record of violence, but lending the weight of her office to his campaign to separate Kosovo from Serbia and make it into an independent state. If this happens, it would become a Muslim state, by virtue of the fact that most of those left in Kosovo are Albanian Muslims. The Serbs, by contrast, are Christians.
The KLA, which was later disbanded and whose members were integrated into a “Kosovo Protection Corps,” was accused of engaging in jihad terror practices such as the beheading of victims. Photographic evidence depicts this.
So we are fighting Muslim terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan but helping them come to power in Kosovo?
This is a foreign policy that has run out of gas and is running on empty. Strangely, Rice is continuing the Clinton policy on Kosovo. No wonder conservatives like Babbin are throwing their hands up in despair.
