Of course you've heard of the ICTY, also known as The Hague 'War Crimes Tribunal.' That's the outfit that kidnaps Serbian leaders (including Slobodan Milosevic) and puts them on 'trial.' Did you think the ICTY was a fair-minded UN court, free to indict anyone charged with crimes in Yugoslavia, regardless of nationality?
"She will because
we will allow her to. "
Exhibit A: Press Conference by NATO spokesman Jamie Shea. Took place May 17, 1999, that is, during the NATO aggression against Yugoslavia.

Did you think critics were indulging in hyperbole when they said Madeline Albright was "Mother of the Tribunal"?
EXHIBIT B: Excerpts from speech by Gabrielle Kirk McDonald, President of the Hague Tribunal, at her award ceremony at the American Supreme Court on April 5, 1999.
Note: The Open Society Institute, which Ms. McDonald found so helpful, is George Soros' outfit. The Open Society acts as a kind of high-profit wing of the CIA. On the one hand, Mr. Soros is a ruthless currency-speculator, implicated in savaging the Thai economy, which launched the great Asian crash. On the other hand, his foundation sets up and funds front groups throughout the former Socialist countries and elsewhere as beachheads for U.S. penetration. This role is touched on in the Emperor's Clothes interview with representatives of the Belgrade radio station, B292, prior to the Yugoslav coup d'état of October 2000.

CEELI, the American Bar Association-Central and East
European Law Initiative (www.abanet.org/ceeli/), appears
to be part of a web of governmental, semi-governmental
and seemingly private organizations which work together
to develop Fifth Column organizations in countries
targeted by the U.S. Empire. One of the main coordinators
of this apparatus is the National Endowment for
Democracy, about which see:
The integration of government agencies with high-powered private agencies in determining the content and effective practice of U.S. foreign policy is most disturbing. Private agencies, armed with the image of humanitarian concern, in fact permit powerfully connected imperial strategists to direct public policy beyond public scrutiny. At the same time, such groups can exploit their seemingly expert, independent status to make statements and publish reports and books which might be recognized as propaganda if issued by government sources. Thus CEELI aggressively supports U.S. government propaganda claims about Kosovo.
An excellent example of this sort of Imperial activism is Human Rights Watch, whose role in the assault on Macedonia, and also the makeup of its Board of Directors, is discussed at http://www.emperors-clothes.com/articles/treanor/hrw.htm
Did you think this "United Nations" War Crimes Tribunal was funded by the United Nations?

"THE UNITED STATES PLEDGE USD 500,000 TO
"TRIBUNALS OUTREACH PROJECT
"PRESIDENT McDONALD GRATEFUL FOR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTION
"On behalf of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the President of the Tribunal, Judge Gabrielle Kirk McDonald, has expressed her deep appreciation to the U.S. Government for its pledge of USD 500,000 for the Tribunals Outreach project. Harold Koh, the US Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labour, announced the donation at a press briefing at the Tribunal on Friday 16 April 1999.
"This generous contribution, which makes up over a third of the total Outreach budget, will, as Assistant Secretary of State Harold Koh noted 'allow the Tribunal to carry its message of impartial justice not only to governments and legal practitioners in the former Yugoslavia, but, most of all, to the families of victims.'
"The President urges other countries and organisations to support this vital project, which is aimed at bridging the communications gap between the Tribunal and the people of the former Yugoslavia and helping in the international communitys overall reconciliation effort."

* Former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic is 'on trial' before NATO's so-called Tribunal. But that's nothing new. For better than a decade he has been on trial in the Western media, convicted daily of doing - and saying - terrible things. When you read the original documents you discover that the media is ill-informed or lying about Milosevic's statements and views. Go to www.icdsm.com
