NATO War in Kosovo: Aftermath

March 09, 2000
Story
WATCH FULL SHOW

A mole at NATO headquarters is alleged to have leaked secrets of the Kosovo campaign to the Yugoslav military command. Information leaked during the first two weeks of the campaign included targets to be hit and precise flight paths, according to an internal classified report obtained by the BBC, which will air a documentary on this called "Moral Combat: NATO at War."

NATO spokesperson Jamie Shea denied that there was a mole in the organization, but acknowledged that there may have been some security problems.

Details of the deployment of NATO reconnaissance operations were allegedly given to Belgrade, enabling Serbs to move troops and equipment out of target zones.

Meanwhile, French troops in Kosovo have prevented UN police from investigating violence in northern Mitrovica in which 40 people were wounded. More than 40 people, including 16 French KFOR soldiers, were injured after Albanians attacked them.

Guests:

  • Sputnik Kilambi, reporter in Pristina who is training journalists at the Kosovar radio station "Blue Sky."
  • Chuck Spinney, Pentagon analyst who was one of the founders of the military reform movement.
  • Pierre Sprey, former specialist to Secretary of Defense Robert MacNamara’s Systems Analysis Office (one of MacNamara’s "Whiz Kids").
