I first got word of this yesterday afternoon --it was from a field officer in Kosovo who headed his email with "HOLY SHIT!" and described Ceku as the "Butcher of the Serbs". I ran the rumor by a Serb official who said it was "obviously truth" adding she had heard something similar a couple of days after Rugova died. Reuters confirms today. -5 hours ago.
The "field officer" (as he will only allow himself to be known) believes this is a political game being played to try to irritate the Serbs into walking away from the negotiating table. He believes the Serbs should stay and "laugh" at what ensues...so as to not play into the game.
