Where Are Kosovo's Killing Fields?

Summary:

During its four-month war against Yugoslavia, NATO argued that Kosovo was
a land wracked by mass murder; official estimates indicated that some
10,000 ethnic Albanians were killed in a Serb rampage of ethnic cleansing.
Yet four months into an international investigation bodies numbering only
in the hundreds have been exhumed. The FBI has found fewer than 200.
Piecing together the evidence, it appears that the number of civilian
ethnic Albanians killed is far less than was claimed. While new findings
could invalidate this view, evidence of mass murder has not yet
materialized on the scale used to justify the war. This could have serious
foreign policy and political implications for NATO and alliance
governments.
