    Bosnia: Al-Qaeda's European Afghanistan
    History; Posted on: 2007-08-19 11:42:42 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
    Author John Schindler, veteran NSA spy, talks about his new book Unholy Terror: Bosnia, Al-Qaeda, and the Rise of Global Jihad.

    by M. Bozinovich

    For many, the war in Bosnia in the 1990s was an event where bane, unthinkable opposites often found symbiosis: journalism and propaganda, fairness and subjective bias, objectivity and selective reportage, spiritual piety and murder of innocents... The aim was to make the version of history Sarajevo's Muslims, indeed Muslims across the world, were alleging an accepted dogma among the policy makers in the West.

    In his new book, Unholy Terror: Bosnia, Al-Qaeda, and the Rise of Global Jihad, author John Schindler, a veteran intelligence officer for the ultra-secret National Security Agency (NSA), warns of the dangers of half-truths politicians and journalists flaunt about Bosnian war and admits that, had he not been a spy, he would swallow the Bosnian Muslim propaganda without indigestion.

    "[L]ike so many others who followed the Balkan conflagration with a mix of horror and attraction, deep down I wanted Sarajevo's version of the truth to be reality," writes John Schindler.

    With the luxury of being in the front seat of the information flow and a spy himself who gathered the information first hand by traveling to Bosnia on numerous occasions, the author John Schindler challenges established beliefs about Bosnia and warns America of its wanton cheer leading for the claims on history Muslims make: What Afghanistan has been to Al-Qaeda in the 1980s so is Bosnia in the 1990s, a battleground where Jihadists perfected their terror tactics then used them on America on 9/11.

    "It is no coincidence," writes the author "that since the mid-1990s a distressing number of the most wanted terrorists around the globe turned out to have cut their teeth in the Bosnian crucible."

    The two out of the 19 hijackers on the 9/11 airplanes are veterans of the Bosnian Jihad and served as soldiers in the Bosnian Muslim army.

    "Disillusioned and embittered by the gross shortcomings of our 'best and brightest' and nearly everything they said about Bosnia, I swore to tell the real story someday, when I was free to do so," says Schindler. "The time is now."

    The risk that John Schindler, the author, now faces is the fate of academics that ventured to challenge the prevailing dogma about Bosnia.
