Milošević intelligence chief was CIA man
#1
The US has for many decades paid well placed people to work for them while they also receive a wage from their own state. This is particularly true in military, police, political and intelligence areas.

"Milošević intelligence chief was CIA man" 2 March 2009 | 09:46 -> 16:46 | Source: Tanjug, LA Times THE HAGUE, BELGRADE -- Slobodan Milošević's head of intelligence service known as the DB, was in fact "a reliable CIA associate" for eight years, a report says.

The Los Angeles Times wrote on Sunday that Jovica Stanišić, "accused of setting up genocidal death squads", was "a valuable source for the CIA, an agency veteran says, he also 'did a whole lot of good'."

Facing a war crimes trial at the Hague Tribunal, "Stanišić has called in a marker with his American allies. In an exceedingly rare move, the CIA has submitted a classified document to the court that lists Stanišić's contributions and attests to his helpful role."

The newspaper says that the document remains sealed, but that its contents were described by sources to its reporter.

The report claims that the CIA recruited him in Belgrade in 1992, by now retired William Lofgren.

"The agency was all but blind after Yugoslavia shattered into civil war. Fighting had broken out in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Milošević was seen as a menace to European security, and the CIA was desperate to get intelligence from inside the turmoil," says the daily.

"For eight years, Stanišić was the CIA's main man in Belgrade. During secret meetings in boats and safe houses along the Sava River, he shared details on the inner workings of the Milošević regime. He provided information on the locations of NATO hostages, aided CIA operatives in their search for grave sites and helped the agency set up a network of secret bases in Bosnia."

At the same time, the reports said, Stanišić was "setting up death squads for Milošević that carried out a genocidal campaign" according to Hague prosecutors.

Lofgren said the agency drafted the document to show "that this allegedly evil person did a whole lot of good", but he did not claim to disprove the allegations against Stanišić.

The 58-year-old former head of the Serbian secret service, who pleaded not guilty, remained silent, "citing the tribunal's ban on communications with the media".

"The CIA's effort puts it in the unusual position of serving as something of a character witness for a war crimes defendant," writes the LA Times. "The agency declined to comment on the document. Because its contents are classified, the letter could be considered by the court only in closed session. Court officials said it was unclear whether the document would be of significant use to the Stanišić defense, or would come into play mainly in seeking a more lenient sentence if he is convicted."

While in Hague prison, Stanišić wrote a seven page account of the 1990s era where he "portrays himself as someone who sought to moderate Milošević, and who worked extensively with the CIA to contain the crisis".

"I institutionalized cooperation with the U.S. intelligence community in spite of the notoriously bad relations between our two countries," Stanišić writes. That collaboration, he continues, "contributed significantly to the de-escalation of the conflict."

But the chief prosecutor, Dermot Groome, says that Stanišić's actions to help the CIA and counter Milošević only underscore the power he had.

According to the newspaper, "Stanišić drew boundaries", which included "never taking payment from the CIA".

His Hague trial was postponed last year "to allow him to return to Belgrade for treatment of an acute intestinal disorder that according to court records had caused substantial blood loss. If Stanišić's health stabilizes, his trial is expected to resume this year", say the article.


Hague: No comment

No one at the Hague Tribunal was willing to comment on the claims found in the LA Times report.

The transcripts from the Stanišić trial proceedings to date do not show that a letter had arrived from the CIA at this UN war crimes court.

Even if such a letter was submitted and mentioned, reports say, that would have happened in one of the sessions closed to the public.

By now I suppose we should take these sort of shocks as read. But good grief!
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

A CIA asset administered the programme of ethnic cleansing which served as the pretext for US-led "humanitarian" intervention? Sounds about right.
