The CIA in Yugoslavia

No tinfoil here. Jovica Stanisic, the top Serbian spy chief during the break up of Yugoslavia, was an attache for the CIA. He was directing ethnic cleansing squads at the same time he was passing on information.

Yugoslavia was the last major stumbling block to the introduction of Western capital, influence and property relations into Eastern Europe, after the USSR fell. How the West sought to 'manage' its break up is hard to pinpoint, but Stanisic was most likely part of that. Destroy the country, but don't let thing get too out of control.

Not doubt similar things have gone on in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as any number of sectarian disputes festering around the world which destabilize adversaries of the United States.
April 1991: Stanisic and others in Serbian intelligence allegedly oversee establishment of "special units," paramilitary groups later accused of atrocities against Bosnians and Croats.

1991: Special units allegedly "committed crimes in and attacked and took control of towns and villages" in Serb autonomous regions in Croatia.

1992: First meeting with CIA; begins clandestine cooperation with agency; turns over blueprints of bunkers built by Serb companies in Iraq.

March 1992 to 1995: Special units allegedly "committed crimes in and attacked and took control of towns and villages in the municipalities of Bijeljina, Bosanski Samac, Doboj, Sanski Most, Zvornik." Simultaneously, Stanisic cooperates with CIA, providing information on Milosevic regime and conveying communications from the U.S. to his boss.
