And lest we forget…

Radovan Karadžić on trial for war crimes committed in Serbia in the 1990s.  I remember seeing him on television and wondering, “Who the hell is this madman, and how did he gain power?”

From the NY Times today:

Karadzic, the Bosnian Serb wartime leader, on Tuesday denied charges that his troops had committed large-scale atrocities during the Bosnian war, brushing aside the accusations as “myths” fabricated by his enemies.

The siege of Sarajevo, where more than 10,000 people died in 44 months, was not a siege by Bosnian Serb forces, he said. Instead, Sarajevo was a city divided by fighting, he contended, where Muslims killed other Muslims and “planted bodies of dead soldiers” around the city to put the blame on the Serbs.
