It appears, from the news that the socialist, pro-drug, pro-terrorist wing of the Democratic Party has found its dream candidate to defeat the hated George W. Bush, that monster in the White House who has dared to declare war on both terrorism and drugs. At least, thats what Londons Independent newspaper, which is still furious at George Bush ousting Saddam Hussein, tells us in a front page article entitled: Dream candidate' Wesley Clark sets out for White House. The article begins:
Retired General Wesley Clark - first in his class at West Point, Rhodes scholar, Vietnam veteran and NATO supreme commander during the Kosovo war - returned to his native Little Rock in Arkansas yesterday, to make official what has been on the cards for months: that he will become the 10th contender for the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination.
In an effort to equate the military leadership of Wesley Clark in helping the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), a terrorist group, with Washingtons help in founding America, The Independent also tells its mostly anti-Bush British readership, From George Washington on, America has never been averse to soldiers-turned-President. In 1999, the Kosovo Liberation Army was a group well know to Interpol and even on the U.S. State Department terrorist list for its drug-trafficking and murderous killings.
I have been researching and writing about the KLA since 1996, after Bill Clinton gave it status in the Dayton Peace Accord in 1995. At the time, and up until we actually became the Air Force for the KLA in effect the ground forces for General Wesley Clark giving the coordinates he needed to bomb the Serbs. The group suddenly burst on the world stage in 1998 as the favorite of the Clinton administration under then Secretary of State Madeline Albright, who was reported to have supplied KLA leader, Hasim Thaci, a satellite phone and her personal telephone number.
Actually, Im delighted that Wesley Clark had decided to run for president. This gives us the opportunity to bring up some of the things that he was involved in during the Clinton Administration which were a whole lot more important than Monica Lewinsky, the topic covered by the media pretty much to the exclusion of everything else at the time.
Some of the facts about the KLA and the Clinton White Houses close association with this group of drug lord terrorists that were trained by Osama bin Laden after they organized in 1992, might have come out, had there been a Congressional debate on Clintons decision to bomb Kososo. But, of course, he didnt ASK Congress for its support. He just used Wesley Clark, his old Little Rock, Arkansas sidekick, that he managed to have elevated to NATO commander to implement his orders.
In fact, I wrote an article in August 1998 entitled, Did Bill Clinton Smooth the Way for Bin Laden to Become the World's Most Successful Terrorist? <http://www.bannerofliberty.com/OS8-98MQC/8-24-1998.1.html
> in which I mentioned issues that help explain why Bill Clinton has pushed Wesley Clark to run for the presidency and why drug traffic apologists like the Independent in London are going to push his candidacy with every bit of ink they have.
There WAS a strange relationship between Bill Clinton, his soft on drugs policies and Osama bin Laden. <http://www.bannerofliberty.com/OS9-01MQC/9-14-2001.1.html
> Illegal drugs accounts for something close to 7% of the Worlds economy, according to the United Nations, and George W. Bush has dared to not only challenge the terrorists who control the drug traffic but even LINK the two for the first time in the minds of the public. I wrote about that as recently as last year <http://www.bannerofliberty.com/BOL1-02MQC/2-20-2002.1.html
> when President Bush, to the horror of the liberals, dared to say at a Drug Control Strategy meeting in February 2002:
I'm asked all the time how can I help fight against terror? Well, one thing you can do is not buy illegal drugs. If you are buying illegal drugs in America, it is likely that money is going to end up in the hands of terrorist organizations. <http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2002/02/20020212-8.html
It was, and is, drug money that financed the KLA who, under NATOs watchful eye, (have destroyed over 100 Serbian Orthodox Churches in Kosovo http://www.kosovo.com/destruction.html
) and driven out approximately 250,000 Serbs and other minorities since they took control of that Yugoslavian province in 1999. And, it was, and probably still is, drug money that finances the Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan.
On February 18, 1999, at a Pentagon briefing on Kosovo, Captain Mike Doubleday observed, in trying to explain to a skeptical reporter who was concerned about the Air Force being manipulated by the KLA terrorists, We are going to be very watchful that that kind of an occurrence does not happen, and we are not going to become an Air Force for the KLA.
Five days later, Senator Bob Smith, Republican of New Hampshire said on the floor of the Senate on February 23, 1999 stated, We are in essence becoming the Air Force for the KLA."
So, what IS the KLA, Wesley Clarks ground forces in the air attack on the Serbs? The Federation of American Scientists, a fifty-year-old group founded by nuclear scientists to monitor world trouble spots, describes the KLA as follows: <http://www.fas.org/irp/world/para/kla.htm
"The Kosovo Liberation Army -- KLA in English acronym or UCK in the Albanian acronym -- first appeared in Macedonia in 1992. In 1995 the beginnings of armed resistance to the Serbs appeared, when the KLA carried out isolated attacks on Serbian police. The KLA appeared for the first time in public in June 1996, assuming responsibility for a series of acts of sabotage committed against the police stations and policemen in Kosovo and Metohija. After these bombings, Serb authorities named it a terrorist organization. Since 1997 the Kosovo Liberation Army has conducted attacks on Serbian police and other officials. They did not attack Yugoslav Army military facilities, rather, their emphasis was ambushes of police patrols and attacks on Albanians who collaborated with Serbian authorities."
My question to Presidential Candidate Wesley Clark is simple: What exactly is your position these days on collaborating with drug dealers and terrorists? Have you changed your mind, or do you still think you were doing the right thing to turn Kosovo into a drug dealers, terrorist and white slave traffic paradise it has become under NATO jurisdiction?
