Germany corroborates Balkan terror network


Germany's Federal Intelligence Service (BND) told the German News Agency, DDP that the terrorists responsible for the Madrid bombings, and some involved with the attacks in London, had contacts in Bosnia, and that Al—Qaeda may have an intact terror network in the Balkan nation.  A BND source added that,

The "Balkans, particularly Bosnia and Kosovo" are now "a dangerous breeding—ground, presently under scarcely any observation, for Islamist terrorists," a BND source told DDP. Muslims from Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, and Britain are reportedly traveling there to be "fanaticized," he said.

The BND reinforces earlier reports in AT  and in the Cybercast News Service that terrorist elements had been busy developing a sophisticated terror support network ever since the Clinton administration allowed Muhajadeen fighters and weapons to enter the Balkans during the Bosnian War.

In fact, the BND agrees with CNS staff writer Sherrie Gossett's claim that Abu el Maali, a terror leader in Bosnia, Pakistan, and Afghanistan is still in Bosnia.  The BND source notes that,

One of the most well—known mujahidin leaders in the Balkans, Abdelkader Mokhtari, also known by the name of Abu El—Maali [names as published; emphasis added], who was said to be implicated in a failed bomb attack on U.S. soldiers in Germany at the end of the 1990s [emphasis added], has now reportedly returned to Bosnia, and found a safe bolt hole there, BND said.

On a related note, we're still waiting for the American legacy media to establish wall—to—wall coverage of Clinton's Balkans quagmire.
