William Walker Gives Tasks to Albanian Extremists For an Attack on Northern Kosovo The visit of William Walker some ten days ago in Kosovo has alarmed the representatives of KFOR’s intelligence service, who estimate that his arrival had not been accidentally timed, Novosti learns from sources close to UNMIK. The information of French intelligence officers is that Walker met with many former KLA members that he had personally trained for special operations against the Serbian forces. The goal of his arrival is the preparation of a scenario and ordering of guidelines to Albanian terrorists for taking measures to seize northern Kosovo. Walker visited twice the Drenica, Srbica and Prekaz. He met in Pec at the Metohija Hotel with former members of Haradinaj’s special unit that perpetrated the gravest crimes against Serbs and non-Albanians in 1999. He visited the region of Mokra Gora and Djakovica. He met in Prizren with the KPC deputy commander, and in the village of Zur he had talks with a group of unknown Albanians. He also met all of the old spies he had created when he headed the Verification Mission prior to the NATO bombardment. According to what the intelligence services of the big powers had informed their governments, Walker was on a mission of preparing terrorists and extremists for performing the final phase in the realization of the project on an independent Kosovo in case plans are not resolved “peacefully.” Nevertheless, the focus is on northern Kosovo. The international forces in Kosovo, especially KFOR, do not have a worked-out performance strategy in different situations regardless of the fact that all KFOR representatives state they are ready for “all options,” our source from UNMIK states. Divisions inside KFOR are big. The Americans are trying to hold everything under control. A lot of information and classified data on the preparations of terrorists for new activities are not available to French officers. Only higher officers appointed by NATO have access to such sources. The Americans are afraid that the French will give out such plans to the Serbs in northern Kosovo. The French officers are acquainted only with classified data of lower level, and it is noticeable in some situations that some data is given out to see where it will end up. Certain KFOR contingents that have forces in northern Kosovo received the task of systematically provoking the Serbs everywhere and causing their reactions. KFOR doesn’t have worked out performance plans in northern Kosovo, says our source, in case of an eventual attempt of the Serbs to separate this part or plans of a possible operation of Albanian terrorists towards the north. Certain KFOR contingents openly fear a sudden operation of Albanian terrorists towards the north, which is possible in the coming months. Terrorist groups received the task of provoking the Serbs during the crossing of the boundary line with Kosovo, pushing them to revolt attacks of Albanian villages and houses along the communication lines that are leading towards Presevo and Bujanovac, and to possibly “seize” some villages, which would give room to the Albanian extremists to attack them in alleged self-defense. The plan is to provoke the Serbian security forces to react in the protection of Serb convoys and to then urgently request the intervention of international forces in the protection of the “jeopardized Albanian population in the Presevo Valley from Serbian security forces that are revenging over the loss of Kosovo.”
