Ah yes, my agenda. My nefarious agenda that we should be fighting the terrorists instead of helping them. That we shouldn’t be staking our future on a Greater Albania, whose “nominal” Muslim loyalties face toward Mecca, as Jesse Petrilla--founder of the United American Committee--wrote in his recent article, “My Trip to Bosnia and Kosovo.” Is it a devious agenda to convince Americans to discontinue helping Muslims cleanse Christians from Kosovo, and to quit sacrificing a small Christian community in the hopes of winning jihadist good will?

THE FARCE OF THE KOSOVO MISSION Julia Gorin
After my article exposing the farce of our Kosovo mission ran in American Legion Magazine last month, I heard from a soldier in Kosovo who was incredulous that someone was actually and finally talking about the region. I proceeded to publish twoletters from him in this space, about his experiences and observations there, some of which confirm the free run that jihadists have in Kosovo, the fact that Albanians are being radicalized, and the notion that we should not have intervened in Kosovo as we did. Only there since November, the National Guard soldier stopped short of confirming the ethnic cleansing and slow genocide of Kosovo’s Christians that I’ve described in my articles.
Unfortunately for the deniers, the facts are also now chronicled in a book by a UN worker, entitled Hiding Genocide in Kosovo—a Crime Against God and Humanity.
But a National Guard soldier named Nicki Fellenzer, who runs a blog and also read the Legion article, found the piece to be at odds with her experiences in Kosovo. She (along with fellow military blogger Brad Staggs), wrote that my commentary was “filled with wild accusations, inaccuracies, distortions and downright lies that serve only to hurt our peacekeeping mission in Kosovo and shed a negative light on the Soldiers who are carrying out said mission…We're disappointed in [Julia Gorin]...for holding [her] agenda as more important than the troops who are sworn to protect [her] freedom to promote it.”
In her attempted deconstruction of my argument and unnamed agenda, Fellenzer made the fantastical claim that the KLA no longer exists (something that causes Albanians to erupt in laughter when they hear it) while dutifully recording some standard written quotes from military bureaucrats about the goodness of the U.S. mission in Kosovo. She also cited in-house intelligence analysts at Camp Bondsteel where she’s based as saying that the destruction of 150 churches and monasteries since 1999 is vandalism and not ethnically motivated.
Anyone who has even the first clue about Kosovo knows the diminishment that the administrative and military internationals in Kosovo have been practicing since 1999, to make things look not nearly as disastrous as they are, so that we can move toward Kosovo independence and wash our hands of the ethnically pure, narcoterrorist mafia-state we’ve helped create.
There is so much more. Read it.
