The Brooklyn Connection
By Julia Gorin
Albanian-American roofer Florin Krasniqi has been living in Brooklyn and smuggling American guns into Kosovo to arm the Kosovo Liberation Army--this time for war against its erstwhile saviors, NATO and the UN....Realizing Albanians could lose the good will of Americans once they see the documentary, Krasniqi went on "60 Minutes" last Sunday, to paint himself as a concerned citizen promoting anti-gun legislation...

"Following the broadcast of its latest attack on American firearm laws and .50-caliber rifles by the CBS newsmagazine "60 Minutes," the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today called on the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to investigate the subject of that report, identified as Florin Krasniqi.
...If this guy is running guns from America to a part of the world in turmoil, and doing it in violation of various federal and state gun laws," Gottlieb said, "he's hardly a hero."
KLA - Holbrooke - Clark ping
Why isn't that scumbag in a jail?
my exact thought , WHY IS HE NOT IN JAIL ?? the "authorities" will give some kinda vaudevillian doubletalk , but if he's been doing this for years , there must be some politico playing both sides ,... get ready for the gobbledeegook and the long,slow walk to nowhere
I wonder whether INS is running a check on his citizenship application.
At the event, we see Krasniqi greeting Wesley Clark. "Mr. Clark, this is your group, your KLA," Krasniqi says, introducing the former NATO commander to six or so fellow KLA fighters whom Krasniqi helped resettle in the U.S. Krasniqi himself was smuggled into the country across the Mexican border in the trunk of a car.
Didn't these creatures "win" the war? Why are they here? They have their country now, why can't I have mine?
"With money, you can do amazing things in this country," Krasniqi rhapsodizes. "Senators and congressmen are looking for donations, and if you raise the money they need for their campaigns, they pay you back."
At least he understands how the American system works.
Today Kosovo is just five percent away from being ethnically pure--purged of all minorities via pogroms, which reached a crescendo in March of last year. Nearly 200 Serbian churches and monasteries have been burned, destroyed, spray-painted with "KLA" and/or used as a toilet.
Yep, the war against ethnic cleansing has resulted in, you guessed it, ethnic cleansing. It was a typical war of liberal imperialism, where the blood and resources of Western nations were used in a way that was not only not in their interests but actually against their interests.
And once again, the push to outlaw .50 guns shows how current and future anti-terrorist laws will be turned against the American people and the Constitution, and were intended to from the beginning by many who pushed them.
Was he surprised at how easy it was to get it? "Not just me. Most of non-Americans were surprised at how easy it is to get a gun in heartland America," says Krasniqi. "Most of the dealers in Montana and Wyoming dont even ask you a question. Its just like a grocery store."
Krasniqi just documented himself committing a felony. Dealers most definitely do ask questions. They ask them via the form 4473. The first one is the most important to this story: "Are you the actual buyer of the firearm(s) listed on this form?" He was not. He was the strawman purchaser. That is a felony.
Where is that scumbag Spitzer now?!
Letting a felon walk free is standard fare for the Clintonistas. The Stupid Party won't even touch these guys.
The Drina more or less forms the boundary between Serbia and Bosnia before flowing into the Sava. It is nowhere near Albania or even the Serbian province of Kosovo.
On the map below you can see the name Drina just below Sarajevo.
Typically wrong. The Albanians sing about the Drin or Drini river--the White Drini & Black Drini branches come from Macedonia & Kosovo & then combine to flow thru northern Albania to the Adriatic near Skodra. It is the longest and best known river in the Albanian populated area of the Balkans. The Drina River you referenced is completely different.
Thanks! I may have misheard.
