Federal authorities on Wednesday began legal proceedings to strip U.S. citizenship from two Bosnians, including one living in Oregon, for war crimes including executing civilians during that countrys civil war in the 1990s.
The move by the U.S. Justice Department comes years after Rasema Handanovic and Edin Dzeko were extradited and later convicted by courts in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2011. After serving her sentence, Handanovic returned to Beaverton, Oregon, according to a statement from the Justice department, while Dzeko has not yet been released by Bosnian authorities.
The department filed denaturalization lawsuits against the pair in federal courts in Oregon and the District of Columbia Wednesday. It wasnt immediately clear if Handanovic has an attorney in Oregon, and information about an attorney for Dzeko was not immediately available.
Members of the same military unit during the civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990s, the pair were convicted of executing civilians and unarmed soldiers during a massacre in the tiny mountain village of Trusina.

I believe you are correct. I go with Bismarcks aphorism;The entire Balkans are not worth the bones of one good Pomeranian grenadier.
