In his article "Wishful Thinking," Nebosja Malic refers to analyst Koco Danaj as political adviser to the Albanian prime minister.
That's what the Serb foreign minister said too.Both of them know it is not true.Nebosja had more than enough time to find out that Koco Danaj has nothing on earth to do with the current prime minister of Albania.
refers to a source that suits him.Mr. Danaj
is a leftist; the current Albanian current prime minister is a right-winger.Mr. Danaj was an adviser to former socialist prime ministers, but has fallen out of grace with them too.
Please go to Danaj's
Web site, www.lajme.net. ,
Nebojsa Malic replies:
I am not "refusing" to source anything, and I am deadly serious.Mr. Danaj was cited as being an adviser to Mr. Berisha by AKI, the Italian news agency whose dispatch I hyperlinked in my article.
Now, why would a Pristina newspaper print Mr. Danaj's
statements about "Natural Albania" and present him as more important in Tirana than he
actually is, unless it agreed with his
opinions?That was the point I was trying to make.But fair enough - let's say you are right and that Mr. Danaj
is a marginal figure on the Albanian
political scene.Is this specific opinion he
put forth a widely accepted one, or an extremist position denounced by the mainstream?
