Richard Perle linked to Islamic Militancy in Bosnia

I just found this in Intelwire, which has a bunch of really great stuff. They say they have 500 pages of documentation to back it up.

Richard Perle, MPRI and Bosnian Arms Shipments

Connoisseurs of elaborate Bosnia conspiracy theories will love this (and don't think I don't know you're out there).

Controversial neocon philosopher Richard Perle led an obscure nongovernmental organization tasked with hiring a private company to run the U.S. State Department's "Train and Equip" program in Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1996.

Perle's group, the "Acquisition Support Institute," hired Military Professional Resources Inc., essentially a professional mercenary company nearly as controversial as Perle himself. It's not at all clear what or whom is responsible for the Institute, or why a "non-governmental, non-profit organization" would be responsible for selecting the recipient of a massive State Department contract on one of the most sensitive issues of the day.

Equipped with a collection of retired military officers, MPRI set itself up as a virtual extension of the U.S. government in both Croatia and Bosnia, as documented in an extensive set of Freedom of Information Act documents I will be publishing over the next several weeks.

MPRI operatives were given the run of the country -- receiving payments and arms from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other Muslim countries, which underwrote operations to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

In many cases, these payments were brokered directly by the State Department. In some instances, funds and arms were routed into Bosnia without State's explicit approval but often with its knowledge, as documented in the newly declassified records. Unauthorized assistance appears to have come from Pakistan, UAE and Turkey, among others.

Bosnia was a hotbed for al Qaeda in the early 1990s. I am still tracing the extent of how al Qaeda-linked people and groups operated after the T&E program launched in 1996. However, al Qaeda-linked mujahideen were trained by former American military officers prior to the T&E program's launch.

Train and Equip was (nominally) intended to marginalize extremists and Islamic radical networks by replacing them as the primary source of weapons, training and funding to Bosnians. Instead, the program ran parallel to somewhat lower-profile extremist networks over the course of several years, and al Qaeda still maintains a strong presence in the country.

Bosnia and the Islamic Jihad In Europe


What's common to all 5 of these events is Islamic militants and al-Qaeda. Is there a global coordination of these events and if so what's the goal? The spider in the net is MPRI, a subcontractor of the Pentagon. They took over the Arab/Iranian weapons-smuggling in 1995, helped the Mujahadeen to "liberate" Sarajevo in September 1995, took the best Mujahadeen fighters after Dayton on their own payroll, trained them with the help of Turkish army and sent them to Kosovo and later to Macedonia.


The spider in the web is the Vatican


"We know from WW II that the Vatican had a highly militant influence in Yugoslavia. War records show the existence of a Vatican organization called "Ustasha" (from the verb: ustati, meaning "to rise up"). The reputation of the Ustasha throughout Yugoslavia is far worse than that of the S.S., S.D., S.A. and Gestapo combined: being created by Ante Pavelic, the head of the Ustasha state of Croatia. Pavelic held many and frequent meetings with Bishops and Archbishops of Croatia and Pope Pius XII. Pavelic was to Yugoslavia what Hitler was to Europe. Pope Pius XII's statement to a group of Croats, on a pilgrimage to the Vatican (lead by Archbishop Aljzije Stepinac), Nov 1939, outlined the Vatican orchestrated atrocities from 1941-1945 and 1991-1995: "The hope of a better future seems to be smiling on you, a future in which the relations between church and state in your country will be regulated in harmonious action to the advantage of both."

Catholic priests like Stane Kukavica (Franciscan monk), changed their robes for the uniforms of the dreaded Ustasha killer squads and led the most barbaric, brutal raids upon those people and practiced satanic torture never before known in this century. The entire genocide operations were overseen by the military vicar Archbishop Alojzije Stepinac ("Jasenovac" was the main center for extermination, being the third largest concentration camp in WWII where over 800,000 Serbs, Jews and Gypsies were systematically butchered) working directly with the Nazi's, helping to create the state of Croatia. (read: "Smokescreens" by: Jack Chick; "The Yugoslav Auschwitz and the Vatican" by: Vladimir Dedijer; "Blowback" by: Christopher Simpson).

The gold from Holocaust victims jewelry and teeth (what was not used to smuggle WW II war criminals out of Europe) is today held in Vatican banks: for which there is an ongoing lawsuit by the law firms of Easton & Levy, at:

In Bosnia the revived Ustasha movement is called "Croatian Peoples Party" (HSP) and its army, the "Croation Defence Force" (HOS). Dobroslav Paraga led HSP. HOS units (Black Legion) comprised of Belgian, Austrian, British and Canadian mercenaries, as well as units from the French mercenary unit: "Nouvelle Resistance". After HOS was dissolved in 1993, by its mentor president Franjo Tudjman (for fear of being exposed for his Vatican connection as too politically obvious units), members were absorbed into other units, later amalgamated into the 108th Bosnian Bregade or the International Bregade. "Front National", "Croatie Libre", and "Slavonie Libre" run by Faci, are also Vatican organizations fronted as Humanitarian Aid.

MPRI (shadowy mercenary organization based in Virginia) contracted by the Pentagon to train Ustasha in Croatia, Bosnia and now Kosovo. Who but the Vatican has the power and/or influence to coordinate both sides in a military conflict to annihilate thousands of peoples at a time i.e. using U.S. troops to control Serbs in a (so called) fire free zone while Fascist Croats murder them, while the U.S. troops keep the Serbs defenseless. This policy will continue throughout the Balkans."

They are training Croatian nationalists in Kosovo, which is made up of Serbians and Albanians? Who knew?

BTW, since I doubt any of your readers will know this, the Bosnian Civil War ended in 1995 with the intervention of 60,000 peacekeepers, so obviously whatever contract MPRI had 1996, it did not play a role to support Muslims during the war.



"Military Professional Resources Inc. (USA)

Founded in 1987 by retired US military officers, MPRI has 3,000 employees and reputedly more high-ranking military officers per square metre than the Pentagon. It is part of mega-corporation L-3 Communications, whose government services companies (of which MPRI is one) brought in revenues of US$2 billion in 2005. MPRI provided tactical training to the Kosovo Liberation Army in the weeks before the NATO bombing campaign, while its collaboration with the Colombian military has been widely questioned. A range of programmes continue in Africa, former Soviet states, Asia and the Middle East."

Besides the corporate mercenary armies, there are multi-level ties into drug/weapons/prostitution (including children) trafficking.

Get it straight

The UCK are not Ustasha. I don't know if I can take these reports seriously if you can't even keep your extremists groups straight.

Here, a quick test of your knowledge:

If I am driving around the Balkans, and I come across a Cyrillic street sign, I am probably in:

A. Zagreb
B. Sarajevo
C. Bijeljina
D. Pristina
