Going in hiding?...Grow a beard..stay off the bus.

Karadzic: A life of hiding in the open

Forged ID cards, widespread ambivalence and a heavy beard let the world's most wanted fugitive live as Dr. Dragan Dabic, practising mystic medicine in Belgrade for years until he was finally arrested on a city bus

Nice to see him captured.

Saddam grew a beard, lived in a spider hole...didn't work for him.

Giving us guys with beards a bad name? Got a beard..got something to hide?

Did I get that right?

"widespread ambivalence" about "the world's most wanted fugitive" kept him safe?

I read it that way, as well/

There were those who continued to support Milosevic. Old loyalties die hard. Especially when they supported your side and your way of life.

Hunt begins for Karadzic helpers
"Some Serbs have come out in support of the captured Karadzic.
Officials investigating captured Bosnian Serb ex-leader Radovan Karadzic say they will track down and punish those who aided his false identity. ...
A spokesman said those who helped Mr Karadzic knew they were committing a criminal act and would be prosecuted."

It's time America admitted it's crimes against Serbia!

What a bunch of hypocrites we are. Going around the world and starting two different wars to chase after a few Islamic terrorist, while the Serbians had for years been fighting against home grown Islamic terrorists for years, decades. That stench of hypocrisy is overpowering even to this day. We are criminals in Serbia, and justly so.

Women and children forced to watch their men massacred. Mass rape as a weapon of war, because Muslim culture considers the victims 'unworthy' ever after. The infamous mass graves in the Balkans mostly occupied by Muslims. ("Good Muslims", as in "good Indians" in the American West. Sad )

Will the real Dragan Dabic please stand up?

Man whose name used for Karadzic's false identity found

BELGRADE, Serbia - The real Dragan Dabic has emerged and the 66-year construction worker was shocked Thursday to discover his identity had apparently been stolen by one of the world's most notorious war crimes suspects.

Radovan Karadzic assumed Dabic's identity as a cover during the autocratic rule of his mentor Slobodan Milosevic, officials said Thursday, promising to track down anyone who helped the Bosnian Serb warlord stay on the run from genocide charges for nearly 13 years.

The true Dabic lives in Ruma, a Serbian town just north of Belgrade, according to Rasim Ljajic, a government official in charge of war crimes.

"Dabic's ID differs from Karadzic's only in the photographs of the two," Ljajic said.

That discovery certainly altered Dabic's plans for the day.

Saw that tonight on BBC.

The real one seems to be handling it well. Showed the reporter around his little home and sat him down for a taste of his homemade liqueur. The report said the fake one kept an eye on him somehow to verify that he was a cipher, publicity-wise, then went public as the fake.
Real Dabic: 'No, my ID card is right here. Only the police have access to my records.' Sad
