(E) Just why are the British so interested in Gotovina?

 

Just why are the British so interested in Gotovina?

For what it is worth, I sent this to the BBC newsnight
feedback page. Please distribute, publish etc as you
see fit.

Dear Newsnight

I was appalled by your item on Croatian General Ante
Gotovina (2 June). It was little more than MI6 and
Foreign Office spin. The public does not pay the
license fee for you to put out the FCO/MI6 line without
questioning it.

Just why are the British so interested in Gotovina?
Why did you fail to mention Britain's pro-Serb role
during the war in Croatia and Bosnia? Why did you not
mention that Operation Storm - for which Gotovina has
been charged over - defeated Milosevic and Karadzic,
angering many in the Foreign Office?


Why did you not point out the fact that Operation
Storm was controlled by the United States? Why did you
not mention that the charges against Gotovina have
been contradicted by prosecution witness evidence in
the Milosevic trial?

And why did you not point out, as reported in the
Observer, that British taxpayer's money has ended up
in a firm run by one of Radovan Karadzic's supporters?

No doubt these questions and points failed to appear
because it would have shone a very different light on
events. One rather more critical and truthful of
Foreign Office policy.

It would seem the Hutton report has had its effect. It
appears the BBC will now unquestioningly put out any
line from MI6 and the Foreign Office.

Yours sincerely
