In Strasbourg on January 25th the Council of Europe voted to formally endorse Swiss senator Dick Martys report on organ-trafficking by the KLA mafia that the U.S. installed to run Kosovo.

fyi, and likely good to ping the list which follows balkans items.
Agree with every word you just said, Cicero. Thanks.
Russian rep Dmitry Vyatkin ... saying.
It is clear that neither Kosovo nor Albania will help the investigation, but will instead try to conceal or destroy all evidence. We also should not rely upon NATO occupation forces, which are also hardly interested in the probes success
NATO is a moral and strategic train wreck at this point. It needs stake through the you know where...
Thanks, Wendy, but Ravna Gora has the list, too.
