Serb War Crimes Suspect Arrested

Posted on Jul 21, 2008

Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, indicted by the U.N. war crimes tribunal for the murder of civilians in Sarajevo and Srebrenica during the Bosnian war, has been arrested in Serbia after being underground since 1997. Seems the lure of EU membership is getting the government there to turn up some old stones.

The Guardian:
Radovan Karadzic, the former Bosnian Serb wartime president and one of the world’s most wanted men, has been arrested, Serbian government and judicial sources have said.

The office of the Serbian president, Boris Tadic, confirmed that Karadzic had been arrested in Serbia. He was detained and taken to see judges of the war crimes court.

Karadzic, leader of the Bosnian Serbs during the 1992-95 Bosnia wawaitr, was indicted by the UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague in July 1995 for authorising the shooting of civilians during the 43-month siege of Sarajevo.

He was indicted for genocide a second time four months later for orchestrating the slaughter of 8,000 Muslims in Srebrenica in eastern Bosnia.

What ever, when an agenda is already set, almost doesn’t matter what is said. But it is notable that from the link 911blimp he is taking and answering questions of children.
If 9/11 is not investigated we may as well fold up shop and leave or roll over and stick our heads in the sand.

Well. This is EXCELLENT news!! The related links very much appreciated.

Still, amazing that this guy could remain at large for so long, and AFTER his indictment at the Hague. It’s curious that the US involvement in this didn’t come out at the tribunals.

It has more recently though. Makes me wonder if that had anything to do with his finally being captured.

George Warstarter Bush has not only committed crimes against humanity and against his/our(?) own democracy (shades of Hitler!), but he’s twice publicly confessed to having received prior insider knowledge of the ‘surprise’ 9/11 attack—whatever it was—at the highest level of the U.S. government.

I look forward to the day that either A)Democrats can be made to notice, and respond appropriately to, Bush’s public loose-lips-sink-ships admissions (remember: a gaffe is when the truth slips out of a politician’s lips…), or B)We The People can at long last recognize how derelict the Dems truly are in their supposed political opposition, and We finally escape from the fake/phony/staged political system in which we’ve long been immersed.

Looking forward to the day Dick Cheney & George Bush are picked up for war crimes and murder.
