1. Texas Radio Buff: About Two Dozen NATO Aircraft Shot Down by the Serbs; Chinese Embassy Deliberately Hit
PHOENIX, Sept. 3 - Many people would like to eavesdrop, but few know how to do it legally and professionally. Steve Douglas of Ben Hur, Texas, is one of few. Nor does he eavesdrop on something as trivial as domestic squabbles. Unless, of course, they happen to take place on Air Force One (the U.S. President's official airplane).
"It's amazing how many (U.S. government) communications are not encrypted, even on Air Force One," Douglas told Jeff Rense on Aug. 16, a host of a popular Internet Radio show which airs daily at the Sightings Radio Web site.
What attracted our attention to Steve Douglas, however (thanks to a heads-up we got from a TiM reader in the U.K.), was that he also eavesdrops (literally and legally) to many unencrypted U.S. military messages. Such as those exchanges during NATO's war on Serbia, for example, when many communications between the NATO pilots and command and control centers were not encrypted, due to a lack of sufficient number of encryption devices, according to Douglas.
So what valuable "intel" did Douglas pick up from all this eavesdropping to be invited as a guest on the Jeff Rense radio show? How about that at least 22 NATO fixed wing air craft were shot down by the Serb defense, about 10 of those U.S. planes. And that the bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade was no accident, as the Clinton administration claimed. News doesn't get more bombastic than that, does it, especially at a time of universal deceit which the Washington-Brussels-London "lie and deny" PR and military crowd practiced during the war.
So now not only has the "Venik" Web site, and our other sources inside Serbia, corroborated some of the Yugoslav military claims about the large numbers of downed NATO aircraft (see S99-141, "Peacefarce" 35, Item 2, Aug. 26 and S99-139, "Peacefarce" 33, Item 2, Aug. 24) now we have someone right here in the United States, saying the Clinton's White House, the Pentagon's and NATO's claims about having lost only one (F-117A) "stealth" jet, are just plain bunk.
But not only was Douglas careful not to use that term ("bunk"), he sounded downright nervous and reluctant to divulge much when questioned about the details by the radio show host, Jeff Rense. Having said that he realized the "caveat" (i.e., probably the pre-show agreement between the two?) - that Douglas wasn't going to disclose more than you feel is warranted" (to stay alive?) - Rense nevertheless pressed Douglas about the loss of American lives with all these lost aircraft. Especially when NATO rescue helicopters were also shot down by the Yugoslav military, as some of our Serb sources had claimed throughout the war (see S99-08, Day 4, Update 2, Item 2, Mar. 27; S99-22, Day 10, Update 1, Apr. 2; and S99-29, Day 13, Update 2, Item 1, Apr. 5 for some such examples).
Douglas said he'd heard the same "rumors," but did not know much more than that. He sounded scared when he said that. But he did say that he'd heard about a loss of at least one "Blackhawk" helicopter.
But don't take our word for it. Judge Steve Douglas' testimony for yourself at the Sightings Radio Web site - http://www.broadcast.com/shows/endoftheline/99archives.stm, or go directly to the audio file - http://www.audionet.com/shows/endoftheline/9908/end0816.ram, provided to us by our U.K. source. The relevant discussion takes place at about the 2:15:00 mark of this audio file.
As for the Chinese Embassy story, fast-forward to about 2:44:00 mark of the Jeff Rense show audio file. "It was no accident. They knew what they were hitting," Douglas said of the B-2 bomber strike just before midnight on May 7 (see S99-71, Day 47, Item 1, May 8).
In other words, Douglas' eavesdropping seems to confirm what the Chinese have thought all along - that it was a deliberate strike. And his listening in on the U.S. military communications debunks another set of lies, denials and official apologies to the Chinese by the Clinton administration officials, starting with the President (also see "Who Lost China?" - TiM GW Bulletin 98/8-3, Aug. 16).
Now, whichever side of this issue you've been on till now (we've been leaning, for example, toward the "accident" theory), see the key missing element was the motive. Douglas provides it in the interview. "The Chinese 'stealth' (aircraft) expert was in the country," he opined. And as well all know, after one huge embarrassment of having one of its "untouchable" aircraft scattered all over Serb farmers' fields on Mar. 27 (see S99-143, "Peacefarce" 37, Item 1, Aug. 30), the "omnipotent" NATO and the Pentagon military leaders could ill afford another such incident.
So did they succeed ?(in killing the alleged Chinese "stealth" expert), Rense inquired.
"I don't know," replied Douglas.
Which was another copout answer. Because the identities of the Chinese victims are well known (see S99-72, Day 48, Item 1, May 10).
Anyway, Steve Douglas makes interesting gab. Especially when he is sounding scared and reluctant. You can also find out more about his professional electronic eavesdropping at his Web site - http://www.benhurtradingco.com/titlepage.html.
2. An Angry Scotsman: 200 Albanian Dead, Not 10,000 or 100,000!
SCOTLAND, Sept. 2 - We received today the following letter from M. Harrison, a TiM reader from Scotland. No editorial comment is needed:

3. KLA Mobsters Among Albanian "Refugees?"
VANCOUVER, Canada - "Albanian mobsters may have slipped into Canada with the thousands of Kosovar refugees who came to this country in May, according to a Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) document released Wednesday" (Aug. 25), the Agence France Presse reported from Canada. "Should Albanian organized crime members reach Canada, it is possible that they could align themselves with organized crime to pursue their drug-trafficking operations," said the memo dated May 6, 1999 from the Criminal Intelligence Directorate.
TiM Ed.: "Odd" how there's been little said about that in the NWO establishment press in North America.
"Anytime you have an influx of people coming to Canada from outside the country, you want to be sure that you take all the necessary steps to evaluate any dangers," said RCMP spokesman Gilles Moreau. Fewer than 900 of the 7,135 Kosovar refugees who fled to Canada have returned to the Yugoslav province.
TiM Ed.: Surprise, surprise given that some of the Kosovo Albanians are even seeking refuge in Belgrade from the NATO/KFOR "peace farce" (see S99-137, "Peacefarce" 31, Item 1, Aug. 13).
4. Canberra Bribing Kosovo Refugees to Go Home
CANBERRA, Australia, Aug. 26 - "The Australian Federal Government is offering Kosovar refugees in Australia up to A$3,000 each to help them resettle if they return home by the end of October," the government-owned Australian Broadcasting Company has reported.
There are about 2,500 Kosovar refugees still left in Australia, but the government is hoping most will accept the offer. Immigration Minister Philip Ruddock says the Government will provide a resettlement allowance of A$3,000 for each adult and A$500 for each child under 18. He says the money will help those who return to replace business or personal effects they have lost during the conflict.
TiM Ed.: So first Australia pays for the Kosovo refugees to come in. Then Australia suffers some of the same indignities of dealing with the Kosovo Albanians which the Serbs have had to endure in Kosovo (such as the sexual assaults against the Australian citizens - run a search at our Web site for relevant stories). And now Australia is not only begging them to go home, it's BRIBING them to do so.
Why? Whatever happened to the old deportation rules? Did Australia take a cue from the U.S., where there are 5.5 million ILLEGAL immigrants, not to mention the tens of thousands of Albanian "refugees," including the KLA mobsters, still enjoying the U.S. taxpayer's hospitality?
We are all for innocent civilians in need, no matter what race or nationality, being taken care of until they can again stand on their feet. After all, most Americans would do no less for a pigeon with a broken leg. But after such "refugees" turn into leaches, not to mention the KLA types among them, western taxpayers ought to demand that our governments do what most people do with the leaches. Burn them out! Which in the immigration lingo translates into - DEPORTATION!
Lest the likes of Bill and Hillary Clinton, Madeleine Albright, Richard Holbrooke, William Cohen, John McCain, Joseph Biden and a myriad of other Washington U.S. taxpayers' leaches want to take in these "poor refugees" (some of whom arrived in designer clothes - check out our Web site) - as their house guests.
Don't you think it would be a great humanitarian idea, not to mention a cool "PR" move, if, for example, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Mr. and Mrs. Tony Blair, Mr. and Mrs. Gerhard Schroeder, Mr. and Mrs. Chirac, Mr. and Mrs. Yeltsin etc. - were to take in a few thousand Kosovo Albanian "refugees," and put them up at their presidential palaces? (paying for it, of course, out of their own pockets).
