...and This on her new film (In the Land of Blood and Honey)

Angelina Jolie: The Leni Riefenstahl of Her Generation
March 27, 2012

Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut consists of a “romance” that serves as pro-war propaganda for the global elite. In the Land of Blood and Honey was released last year and is now available in the U.S. on DVD and Blu-ray. The film centers around ethnic tensions in the former Yugoslavia, tensions largely created and then exploited by the globalists.

Richard Holbrooke, the late former Assistant Secretary of State and Trilateralist, admitted in his book, To End a War, that U.S. intervention in the civil war was designed to portray the Europeans as helpless and incompetent while portraying the United States as the “indispensable nation.”

“The functional role of the Holbrooke’s diplomacy was to prove that diplomacy, as carried out by Europeans, was bound to fail. His victory was a defeat for diplomacy. The spectacle of bombing plus Dayton [Peace Accords] was designed to show that only the threat or application of U.S. military might could end conflicts,” writes Diana Johnstone.

Bill Clinton, Holbrooke and the globalists used “humanitarian concern” for Albanians in Kosovo as an excuse to team up with NATO and bomb Yugoslavia non-stop for two and a half months. 20,000 tons of explosives were dropped, killing thousands of women, children, and men.

“Many of the liberals, progressives, and other leftists of various ideological leanings who opposed President George W. Bush’s destruction of Iraq (rightly so) were the same people who supported President Bill Clinton’s destruction of Yugoslavia,” Michael Parenti writes in his article, The Destruction of Yugoslavia. “How strange that they would denounce a war against a dictator and torturer like Saddam Hussein yet support a war against a social democracy like Yugoslavia. Substantial numbers of liberals and other ‘leftists’ were taken in, standing shoulder to shoulder with the White House, NATO, the CIA, the Pentagon, the IMF, and the mainstream media when it came to Yugoslavia.”

The CIA and German intelligence, the BND, supported the so-called Kosovo Liberation Army, a terrorist paramilitary operation linked to al-Qaeda. This was reported by the German TV ZDF Network, but is virtually unknown in the United States, as usual.

“The activities of this terrorist organization on the ground, in Kosovo, provided NATO and the US with the pretext to intervene on humanitarian grounds, claiming that the Serb authorities had committed human rights violations against ethnic Albanians, when in fact the NATO sponsored KLA was involved in terrorist acts on behalf of NATO, which triggered a response from the Serb police and military,” writes Michel Chossudovsky.

Useful idiots on the so-called “progressive left” described the drug-running, terrorist affiliated KLA as a “liberation movement.” Once again demonstrating that Einstein was right – insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results – the left has also largely supported Obama’s “humanitarian” intervention in Libya (where at least 30,000 souls perished) and will likely support the same in Syria.

In addition to supporting the KLA, the U.S. and NATO imported al-Qaeda into the region prior to the bombing campaign.

“Bin Laden and radical Muslim groups have been deeply involved in the Balkans since the civil wars in Bosnia from 1992 to 1995. Despite a UN arms embargo and with the knowledge and support of the United States, arms, ammunition and thousands of Mujahideen fighters were smuggled into Bosnia to help the Muslims. Many remain in Bosnia today and are recognized as a serious threat to Western forces there. The Bosnian government is said to have presented bin Laden with a Bosnian passport in recognition of his contribution to their cause. He and his al-Qaeda network were also active in Kosovo, and KLA members trained in his camps in Afghanistan and Albania,” James Bissett wrote for the National Post in 2001.

According to British military sources, the arming and training of the KLA had been assigned to the Defense Intelligence Agency and Britain’s Secret Intelligence Services MI6 and farmed out to “former and serving members of 22 SAS [Britain's 22nd Special Air Services Regiment], as well as three British and American private security companies.” This information was included in a congressional report by the Republican Party Committee in 1997, although the information was studiously ignored by the establishment media.

A former Senate political analyst, James Jatras, said during his appearance before the UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague in 2004 that the Clinton administration turned Bosnia into an Islamic militant base and allowed Iran and Saudi Arabia to supply $300 million dollars worth of arms to Bosnia-Hercegovina in the early 1990s.

I cannot say if Jolie’s film covers these important facts, but considering that it is supported by the Council on Foreign Relations, I doubt it. In December, the CFR joined with Women for Women International to co-host the film in New York City. Jolie is both a CFR member and a “global citizen and active UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador.”

In the Land of Blood and Honey received a glowing review by Micah Zenko on the CFR website. Zenko notes that watching the film “does not require the viewer to recall what happened in the Balkans in the early 1990s, since the complexities of the civil war are distilled into a narrative focused on two people and set in one location: Sarejevo.”

In fact, for the CFR and the elite, it is preferable the masses do not understand such “complexities,” as noted above.

As a director producing propaganda films for the global elite, Angelina Jolie may be considered the Leni Riefenstahl of her generation.

Riefenstahl, the film director who produced the epic propaganda film Triumph of the Will for Hitler and the Nazis, is widely recognized as developing an advanced aesthetic for propaganda films. It is doubtful if Angelina Jolie will be considered a talented propagandist. She will likely remain another Hollywood generated phenomenon in the service of the global elite, merely another pretty face thrown out to distract us from the reality of mass murder.
