Wikipedia Never Ceases to Amaze

Posted while I was typing my last note.

Presidential and government sources in Belgrade announced on Monday July 21, 2008, that Karadžić had been arrested and arraigned.[1] A statement issued by the office of President Boris Tadić said: "Radovan Karadzic was located and arrested tonight ... [and] was brought to the investigative judge of the War Crimes Court in Belgrade, in accordance with the law on cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia." Serbian security forces were credited with having located and captured Karadžić, without any further details being given of the circumstances.[14] The arrest has been confirmed by the ICTY.[15] If he is extradited to the ICTY, he would become the 44th Serb suspect to be sent to The Hague.[16] The arrest came just two days before the ICTY's chief prosecutor, Serge Brammertz, was due to visit Serbia.[17]

Here's too Mladic

They Got the Good Doctor and Poet

Store here.

This has been a very long time coming. As I understand it, it was pretty much an open secret that the good Dr. (who published a well received book of verse just last year) was living comfortably in Serbia. Hopefully, the good Doctor has a better heart than Milosevic. It's so nice when they catch war criminals before they are eligible for retirement. RK is a sprightly 63. How long will it be to they catch Mladic?
