Friends,

The ban against American political discussion is in effect. But this seems to be more of an issue of American politicians in general supporting the Muslim aggresors in Kosovo.  Would anyone care to let me know if this is a true account of what happened? Please, no anti-Kerry remarks not specific to this point of interest to Orthodox Christians.

This doesn't surprise me at all. I think I have heard of this somewhere else also. I'll check around to see what I can dig up.  I found it disgusting the former president dropped bombs on serbian christians, now I see why with the spider web of connections here.
