Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It wasn't an MI6 memo that said that the massacres were a justification applied post-hoc. It was a quote from an unnamed Blair administration insider cited in the book Blair's Wars, by John Kampfner (on p. 59 of the 2004 paperback edition). Unfortunately, that book is rather vague on attributions and references.

W.r.t. arming the KLA, I got that wrong: The weapons they got from Albanian criminals who raided Albanian military stockpiles during a period of anarchy in Albania, caused by collapsing pyramid scams [IMF alert].

What they got from the CIA was training and advisers (via).

ET has covered Yugoslavia rather heavily on a couple of occasions, so there's a lot of research that's already been done and is accessible simply by googling "site:eurotrib.com kla" and reading the comment threads.
