'ISIS Intelligence Commander' Is Extradited From Bosnia To U.S.

Bosnian special force SIPA reported that 36-year-old Mirsad Kandic, detained in Grabovica in July, was extradited to the US on November 1.

Kandic was born in Kosovo. He lived legally in the US for some time. Since 2014 he has been wanted internationally. It is assumed Kandic have been in Bosnia and Herzegovina since January 2017. Before that he traveled around Europe using fake IDs.

Minister of Security of Bosnia and Herzegovina Dragan Mektic called Kandic a “an ISIS intelligence commander.” The officials say that Kandic was hiding out in the country, despite him having a lot of contacts in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Kandic is suspected of organizing delivering weapons and recruits across Turkey, and also of managing several Twitter propaganda accounts. He’s also suspected of organizing several terrorist attacks, including the March 11 Jake Bilardi’s self-detonation in Ramadi.

Bosnia, says the American Balkan expert and former NSA employee John Schindler, “is considered something of a ‘safehouse’ for radicals,” and now harbors a stable terrorist infrastructure. It is one that is not strictly hierarchical and is thus considered “off-message” within IS, but it nonetheless represents an existential threat to the fragmented republic.

According to findings by the Bosnian Ministry of Security, not only were munitions from Bosnia used in the January 2015 attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, but some of the weapons used in the November 13 Islamic State attack on Paris were also from former Yugoslav production.

It increasingly looks as though a new sanctuary for IS fighters, planners and recruiters has been established right in the middle of Europe. More fighters from Bosnia-Herzegovina have joined IS than from any other country in Europe, except for Belgium. Around 30 Bosnians have lost their lives in the Middle Eastern battlefields, with some 50 having returned home. And many more are slated to return following the collapse of ISIS, which will provide several security challenges for the region.

    Hi is an US, Turkish and Iranian creation in the first place. And if they were to extradite all like-minded Bosnian muslims, most of them would soon be traveling to America.

    • Garga

      Specially Iranians because Iranians are known for their devotion to Sunni or more accurate, Wahhabi interpretation and creation and support of ISIS.
      They did the same before with Afghani Mujahedeen and created Al-Qaida.

      Those pesky Iranians!

      • 888mladen .

        Friend Iranian mujahedeens have been fighting on the side of Alia Izetbegovic fascists during Bosnian war and he slathered innocent Bosnians on Sarajevo square and blame it on Yu army . That’s fact. All that was organized by Muslim Brotherhood and bankrolled by KSA, Qatar, Turkey and UAE under supervision of CIA. I personally met with a Bosnian man who was during that time in Bosnia and he would come in contact with them quiet often. Saying that it doesn’t mean that ordinary Iranian people should be blamed for those crimes. They had no say in it.

        • Garga

          I heard a number of Iranians (~3000) and Hezbollah (~400) went to Bosnia when Sarajevo was besieged. They left after the war finished.
          What happened in Bosnia ’90s wasn’t the first time, was it? It happened before and multiple times and will happen again if the hatred remains as alive and well as it is today.

          You don’t like Bosniaks, fine. You see anybody who helped them as some kind of monster, fine. But history’s right there and ethnic Serbs of Bosnia weren’t innocents. Nobody was. Srebrenica?

          One way to know about this, is to look who inherited the Yugoslav army, who got the weapons. If you don’t have weapons you can’t harm much. I’m sure not all of ethnic Serbs and ethnic Croats of Bosnia were monsters and so Bosniaks. Maybe a Bosniak is a better choice to discuss it with you as
          my info in that matter is very limited.

          • 888mladen .

            I’m talking about organized crime behind which has been Muslim Brotherhood and GCC under auspice of US and NATO. For some reason you like to skip discussion about Iranian clergy’s involvement with MB. Lets make it clear that I’m not talking about nationality or ethnicity of those who committed crimes but about ideology by which they’ve been driven. My question is where does that hatred come from and what it has to do with their ideology?

          • Garga

            And how did you reach to that conclusion?
            MB and it’s philosophy had a great deal of impact on the Islamic forces of 1979 revolution. As much as it’s impact was strong before the revolution, it paled afterward. Does IR Clergy’s relation with MB have a role in Bosnia?
            Iran’s presence in Bosnia was objected by NATO for some reason and it was never outside of Bosnia into other parts of FY.
            As I said before, my info re. Balkan is very limited. What I know is the hatred doesn’t come to existence overnight and doesn’t go away that way. It is being built, piece by piece through years. This feud was in Yugoslavia but perhaps marshal Tito didn’t allow it to burst. Perhaps it started by Ottomans murdering and pillaging those parts.
            Yet again, I suggest you find a Bosniak to discuss it.

          • Brother Ma

            Srebnica was pretty much forced on serbs garga. Plenty of evidence the moslems were raiding the dutch themselves.in fact most fighters there were foreign jihadists just like what is made to look like native – syrian opposition now.the real native bosnian muslims were mostly already gone to other places.

          • Don Machiavelli

            ” Srebrenica was forced to Serbs ”

            How the hell did someone force them to execute civilian population, unarmed population, in thousands? Who forced that? Who ‘forced’ police and state to organize transport of victims bodies and make mass graves ( over 300 of them ) all over Bosnia?
            Forced to do genocide? I hear your opinion but logic behind it is laughable.

          • Brother Ma

            It appears you are a bosnian mulsim or supporter.
            Facts , muslims raided christian villages committing atrocities through their protected enclave through dutch forces.
            Fact, muslims shot at dutch themselves their protectors.
            Fact,most muslims at srebnica if not all were foreign import headchoppers as admitted by un files and dutch reports.
            Fact,serbs tried to reason with moslems and they did not listen as admitted by dutch.
            Fact,most if not all moslems native to the area left as admitted by un and dutch.
            Fact, christians could not match massacres in numbers those committed by moslemssince 600s ad in years of killing .
            Fact,even if some moslem bosnians were killed they not civilians but armed fighters as proven by un.
            Fact,bosnian moslems were bloodrhirsty lapdogs of nazis in wwt two and neverbreally paid for their crimes as others did in other countries.why? Because tito wanted reconciliation.the moslems of yugo bit the hand that fed them like they do now in christendom.
            Fact,un military in ground know and said sarajevo was a frame of serbs by foreign moslem secret service and came fron muslim areas.
            Keep your bullshit official stories to yourself.i know people that were there and have read officers narratives post war.
            Anything currently mentioned by us official about anything is fit to be pissed on.
            A belated sorry was serb president found not guilty but too late to little.now the central euros can pay in their own country for thinking that they know better than than those that lived under moslems.
            Does it not strike you as funny that even moslem countries dont want to live under islamic rule?

        • Don Machiavelli

          And you should stand up when you say Alija Izetbegović. If he wasn’t the way he was than Bosnians would commit war crimes too but as represented in Hague, 96% of all crimes in ex-Yugoslavia were done by Serbs.
          What’s worse, Sarajevo was under siege for almost 5 years, constant shelling and sniper fire on civilians and you dare to say that they attacked themselves?

          Average follower of Ratko Mladić and Karađić, that’s who you are. Go visit your idols in Hague instead of spiting that worthless lie here.

    • 888mladen .

      Those who committed crimes against Bosnian people should be prosecuted by Bosnian government. You might be mistaken if you think that all Bosnian Muslims are alike.

    “ISIS INTELLIGENCE COMMANDER’ IS EXTRADITED FROM BOSNIA TO U.S.”…TRANSLATION…CIA/MOSSAD , I.S.I.S INTELLIGENCE COMMANDER IS RETURNED TO THE UNITED STATES UNDER PRESSURE FROM THE U.S/ISRAEL, BY THE BOSNIA GOVERNMENT, TO BE USED IN OTHER OPERATIONS BY THE CIA/MOSAD AROUND THE WORLD.

  • Garga

    Most of us heard about Dilyana Gaytandzhieva and her brilliant work, which caused her to be fired and interrogated. Bosnia and Serbia are in her report regarding the export of arms and fighters.

    For the ones who aren’t familiar, take a look at this and this.

    • Don Machiavelli

      Bulgarian journalist? She didn’t focus on Serbia nor on Bosnia as it was not central part of the story, she managed to trace weapon shipments back to embassies and other governmental offices mainly those from Bulgaria, Saudi Arabia, USA and then air companies, mainly Bulgarian air. Shipments made their war mostly to Saudi Arabia and then to Syria and elsewhere.

      How did you manage to pick out Bosnia, which was hardly mentioned except that some of the weapons is made in Bosnia ( country which has quite a few weapons factory some of which produce sophisticated weapons ) and was bought in the name of Afghanistan government as stated in first report.
      That case is big and Dilyana was taken by police at time, police who only focused on making her reveal her source.

      • Garga

        No, it wasn’t her focus.
        I merely named Bosnia and Serbia because they’re relatively unknown in regards of arms and jihadis shipment to terror groups and this article too is about jihadis of Bosnia.
        I’m sure you too read her reports and know the Bosnian and Serb role in not significant compared to others involved.

        • Don Machiavelli

          Exactly, i got your post a bit wrong after reading few other comments here in this article, sorry for that.

        • Frane Frlan

          Actually, all Balkan countries got the deal from their EU/NATO and “partners” like Jordan an Saudi.
          Cargo ships with arms and ammunition from different ports on Adriatic (Italy, Slovenia, Montenegro, transport primary large quantities of obsolete weaponry from Yugoslav army era. Most of the ammunition (calibre 7,62, f.e.) transferred all around is still pre-90′ production date, made in YU, and that means in Serbian factories mostly, so you cannot identify, who sold to whom, by production signature. Regarding Wahhabi movement and extremism in Bosnia – it is very hard to radicalise significant number of local population, because of completely different religion/tradition roots. During the war in Bosnia, Bosnian Muslims were on the path of extinction, but they didn’t radicalise in way of jihad, or started a holly war against all non-Muslim. They were, actually, the only unionist element which kept Bosnia in it’s borders, and payed the heaviest price.
          On the other hand, after events in 90′, Turkey became main patron of Bosnia central government in capital, and international protector. I suppose, that nothing is happening in Bosnia that Turkey is not aware of.
          On the end, security agencies in Serbia, Bosnia and Croatia are connected between each other like brothers (as organised crime is), not to mention that all those security agencies have roots in the one common. During 90′, somebody establishes today’s agencies – the people which work together in common agencies in Yugoslavia. ;)

      Yeh funny and suspicious that isn’t . No sorry folks we fucked it up from uncle sam.no sorry ,for killing fellow christians to help ungrateful mohammedans who turned around to chop our heads and we allowed saud fucks to build wahhabi mosques in the heart of europe and let bin laden plan 911 from bosnia!

      • 888mladen .

        “let bin laden plan 911 from bosnia”. Where did you get that? It sounds like US government official story of the event. You reckon all that happened because of “incompetence” of US government? All the facts have been out there for long time a and you still believe in “official story”? Do you believe that Oswald was a lone gunmen who killed president Kennedy too?

        • Brother Ma

          888, no i do not believe whole us story but some parts.there is a lot of evidence that bin laden was in bosnia planning alot of 911 after nato turned it into a headchoppers playground.

        • Don Machiavelli

          it’s Serbian propaganda

          • Frane Frlan

            Like attack on Dubrovnik, which, according to the Serbs propaganda was full of Arab, Indonesian, Albanians and other (Muslim) mercenaries, which fights together with Croatian “fascists” .

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mcpd53w5BwI

    • Don Machiavelli

      You wish. If full support is watching Bosnian Muslims die for 4 and a half years than yes, US did ‘fully support’ them. Kosovo is different story but also in Kosovo what induced the violence was Greater Serbian aspiration, as in Yugoslavia. Serbs served Yugoslavia to Americans on the silver plate.

        here you go, see what people said back then how dare you imply that Bosnian people who suffered so much in war were merely terrorists as some in Kosovo

        parts of internet are so polluted by similar shit talk by the same people who laugh at Srebrenica genocide and ethnic cleansing of large parts of Bosnia

    • Frane Frlan

      Bob, regarding ethnic background, there isn’t any connection between Bosniaks and Albanians.
      How comes, that the Bosniaks as Muslims, during the war in FY, didn’t commit any terrorist attack on Serbian, or Croat territories? No suicide bombers, or terror action against any target outside Bosnia. How comes that Bosniak Muslims, which lived in Croatia, joined the Croatian army to fight Serbian aggression on Croatian territories.
      How comes that Serbs started their military engagement and killings on Slovenian territories, Croatian, Bosnian and Albanian, and not even one bullet has been fired in Serbia? How comes that Croatians, Bosnians and Albanians had tens of thousand dead, and hundreds of thousand refugees from period 90-94, and during those 4 years, Serbs held 1/3 of Croatian, 1/2 of Bosnian territories, which were basically cleansed from non- Serb population? How comes that the Serbs attack and siege Dubrovnik with artillery, tanks, war ships and air fighters, where no Serbs lived ever?

      • Bob

        You are on your own an anti-Serb diatribe-trip which has no relation to my comment. That, the current US and EU sponsored state-lets of Kosovo and the Bosniak enclave are both failed, unsustainable, political and economic projects – that have now morphed into key terrorist hubs within Europe. However, this is really not that surprising, given Bosnia still harbors a number of foreign, Saudi sponsored and CIA transited, ex-mujahedin network fighters that stayed on and settled into the Bosniak entity, and as for Kosovo, it is essentially run by ex-KLA terrorist members in suits and accordingly functions as an narco-criminal syndicate enterprise. These are the dubious outcomes of US interventions into the former Yugoslav conflicts in Bosnia and Kosovo – basically yet more chaos that only serves US Geo-strategic interests – to divide and dominate.

        • Frane Frlan

          Look Bob, you started your comment with identifying the guy from Bosnia, as Albanian.
          That’s the same propaganda as Serbs are doing on Balkan area for few decades now – all Muslims are equal.

          Bob, have you been in Bosnia in your life? In Kosovo?

          Bob, would you be so kind end explain you idea about ethnic background of Bosnian Muslims and Albanians? By religion, they are Muslims. What are they by ethnicity?

          Bob, you are unable to answer the any of stated questions, and you blame me to be on anti-Serb trip?

          • Bob

            Actually, the above article clearly states that the arrested individual, a wanted ISIS operative suspect, was located by authorities in Bosnia and was born in Kosovo. The implication that this is an ethnic Albanian from Kosovo, not an ethnic Slav, is quite clear. It is indeed you that has an overweening anti-Serb axe to grind, that is frankly of no interest to others.

          • Frane Frlan

            Bob, sorry but you are not answering the questions, because you are not capable, or you are ignorant to the fact that you don’t know shit about Bosniaks.
            Regarding Serbs, my point is, that Serbian official propaganda demonised all other ethnics groups in Balkan area being fascist or Muslim terrorist. Which is shown in the video of attack on Dubrovnik.
            As I been there, and I’m not part of any involved ethnics groups, you ignorant, I can also think quite objective regarding certain propaganda and events.
            So let’s resume:
            1. This guy has nothing to do with Albania, or Albanians whatsoever.
            2. 99 % of Bosniaks are not terrorists, neither religious fanatics, because, they never act as such, and they been involved in many fights and turmoil the last 500 years.
            3. Read some facts about involvement of Bosniaks in anti-fascist movement and partisans during WWII.
            4. Those guys from Dubrovnik video, apologies for what they did. Several times, and it’s official recognised and admitted by their government. They are not Serbs. But how can you know it? :)

          • Bob

            Reread the article – and try to comprehend the actual content. Again, the suspect, a known and wanted ISIS operative, was hiding in Bosnia and was born in Kosovo. A Muslim extremist and terrorist operative originally from Kosovo, who incidentally has the first name Mirsad, which as you will know, is commonly found in north Croatia but also in Muslim Kosovo and Albania. The rest of your diatribe is diversionary.

          • Frane Frlan

            I think that 90% of the Serbs will agree with me that being born as Mirsad Kandić in Kosovo society doesn’t gain you any integration.
            On the other hand, 90% of population in Serbia or Croatia, doesn’t think that there is 0,1% of chance that guy with such a name can blow himself, or organise a terror attack anywhere in Balkan.
            Bob, before the war started, I was sleeping, farting, shitting with Croats, Bosniaks, Serbs, Montenegrin, Macedonians, Slovenians and Albanians for a year in the same army. We didn’t choose friendships, or girlfriends based on ethnicity, or religion. Maybe 10% of the population practised any religion, by any mean. Many of my generation are completely ethnically “mixed”. If you can “mix” same 20 Slav tribes which came from the same origin, from the same language, and genetically same blood.
            Albanians are only one here different, but religion is far away to be crucial regarding that.

    ”More fighters from Bosnia-Herzegovina have joined IS than from any other country in Europe”

    I urge you to check this statement because Britain, Germany, France… Hundreds of fanatics have joined from those countries while from Bosnia that number is around 140 ( fighters with their families, wives and kids ). Statement from official agencies. Ty.
