Karadžić: Whole Lotta Holbrooke

I doubt anyone's depending on me for "nonstop like the pizza stand on Trg Republike" coverage of Radovan Karadžić's not-so-excellent adventure at The Hague, but there have been a few developments since RK left the BG.

Karadžić's first appearance at the ICTY was almost precisely as one would have imagined it: a mix of defiance and craziness and absolute unwillingness to take any responsibility for the catastropic suffering that he wreaked upon Bosnia and the Balkans.

Shorter RK: Witch hunt. Richard Holbrooke wants to kill me. Can't get a fair trial in lynch atmosphere.

Let's go to the video.

And here's the full statement by RK as a PDF.

And yes, there were some apologies from Karadžić: To all the people who knew him as Dr. Dabic. Next he'll be apologizing to the bees.
