Albanian Terrorists, Part II

Following the suggestion of Jan Sobieski in the combox, a few grafs from FrontPage on the runup to the Albanian Muslim Ft. Dix-Blower-Upper bozoboys.

Meanwhile, our lawmakers continue to support an independent Kosovo, no longer as the multi-ethnic experiment it was originally sold as, but as an example of America using its “military might to create a Muslim country” in Europe, as Congressman Robert Wexler, D-FL, said recently. It appears that the jihadists whom Messrs. Wexler and Lantos had hoped would take note of our kind gesture, have done so.

Wexler and Lantos are best remembered as ultra-Lefties--it's not a stretch to think of them as fellow travelers of the not-quite-dead Communist regimes. They are not ignorant--they are malevolent cancers in our Congress.

Less Leftist, less malevolent, but not less stupid, are the others in the group of Kosovo-kissers:

But no doubt the damage control machine is kicking into gear from the mufti-led State Dept. and our Albanian-bought politicians such as Tom Lantos, Eliot Engel, Joe Lieberman, John McCain, Wesley Clark and — what the heck — let’s dig up the earliest Albanian purchase: Bob Dole, after whom a street is named in Kosovo.

In the near future, a book written by John R. Schindler, professor of strategy at the Naval War College and a former National Security Agency analyst and counterintelligence officer will be published. Emailing the author of the FrontPage article referenced in this post, he says:

This book provides the missing piece in the puzzle of al-Qa’ida’s transformation from an isolated fighting force into a lethal global threat: the Bosnian war of 1992 to 1995. John R. Schindler reveals the unexamined role that radical Islam played in that terrible conflict — and the ill-considered contributions of American policy to al-Qa’ida’s growth.…

Schindler exposes how Osama bin Laden exploited the Bosnian conflict for his own ends and the disturbing level of support the U.S. government gave to the Bosnian mujahidin…[which] contributed to blowback of epic proportions: Khalid Sheikh Muhammad (the mastermind of 9/11) and two of the 9/11 hijacker pilots were veterans of the Bosnian jihad.…

And, yes, it was BillyBob Clinton who helped the Alban/Muslim/AlQuaeda boyzzzz.

"Legacy", you know:

Since 1999, I have been screaming from the rooftops both about the injustice and hoax of our Balkans intervention, and about the security risk posed to us by it — warning that it would come back to bite us. Because when you don’t stop to figure out the historical context of a conflict that will tell you who the actual aggressor is; when you don’t corroborate horror stories by the complainant; when you don’t try to figure out which belligerent happens to also be hostile to your own society; and you instead go full throttle for a cheap moral victory and a Pulitzer, the bad guys will get you next.

I am not a Milosevic sympathizer. I'm well-aware that the Balkans are a three-cornered hat of fire: Catholic Croats, Orthodox Serbs, and Muslims--of Albanian and other tribal descent. It seems that our State Department, fixated on wordplay and embassy-rotation, cannot yet understand the role of religion--much less the momentum of 400+ years' conflict.

That thick-headed stupidity will have its effects. Sadly, those effects may play out inside the borders of the United States.

Jessica has more of the same here.
