The war in Yugoslavia in the 1990s had the goal of establishing a new balance of power in Southeast Europe after the end of the Cold War. For this purpose, the US used the same paramilitary forces, with the help of which they had previously fought with the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, which would later bear the name of the Islamist al-Qaeda terrorist group. Other terrorist organisations of militant Muslims, such as the Islamic State, later developed based on the same roots.
This is, among other things, published in the material of the Swiss Federal Intelligence Service, which has just come to light.
Speaking about Srebrenica, even Philip Corwin, the highest UN civilian representative in Bosnia during the war, later opposed the official version of events. US political scientist Edward Herman and former CIA officer Robert Berr, who at the time “held” Yugoslavian territory, spoke of Srebrenica as a hoax, Wimmer recalls.
