    Investigative journalism was never an objective for B92, Veran Matic or his foreign sponsors. Moreover, Ned Taylor and his contacts "at the Embassy in Sarajevo" also have their own agendas. B92, Ned Taylor, and "contacts at the Embassy in Sarajevo" are all unreliable sources of information.

  2. So what if the election already happened and Trump won? Certain people still are trying to bring him down. Just look at the news
    (KK, 29 December 2016 19:03)

    Yup, I looked at the news and could not find any people trying to "bring him down" (whatever that means to you). To the contrary, people voted for him to be president of the US. It appears that, similarly to our dear friend Ari Gold, you also are not aware that the US presidential election already happened and people voted for Trump. You need to catch up with the news from the last 2+ months, dear!

  3. Dear, you are stuck to the pre-election period. The election already happened, mate and Trump won - you've missed the news from the last 2+ months. As expected (except, of course, some naive people like you) he is doing the opposite of "draining the swamp" and filling his cabinet and White House with billionaires and swamp creatures! Come on mate, don't tell me that you really fell for electoral campaign slogans...

  4. First of all,Dodik and others are NOT invided by Trump team,but by their supporters.
    The same with Ramush Haradinaj,who I respect,he was invited by a lobing group who is Trump ally.
    According to US inaguration protocol only foreign ambassadors in Washington get official invitation.
    Vlora Citaku,Kosovo Ambassador in USA is already invited in Trump inaguration by Trump team.
    The same invitation will receive Albanian,Serbian,BH,Croatian,Greek etc ambassadors in Washington.
    Dodik is stupid or he just wants to play games.

    @rote,
    Nothing wrong with your idea of Kosovo gets partition between Serbia and Albania.
    Let Serbia get North Kosovo and Albania the rest along with Preshevo Valley.
    Orthodox churches will go under Albanian Orthodox Church.
    Anyway,I am going to tell you that a large group of Albanian orthodoxs are planning celebrate the Battle of Kosovo on June 15,2017 and their hero Teodor Muzaka.

    Therefore, as icj1 has declared sj to be brilliant then sj declares icj1 to be an albanian idiot.

    It appears I have missed the fact that the CE of B92 forums sj has ordered Trump that a maximum of about 200 people (i.e. heads of states) is allowed to attend his inauguration. I admit that when I checked my sources I forgot to check the latest orders of the CE of B92 forums sj!

    And no, I'm not the head of Trump's protocol, unless, of course, I've also missed the fact that the CE of B92 forums sj has ordered Trump to appoint me as the head of his protocol :)

  12. Ari Gold: Firstly, to answer your question about the visa. Dodik applied to have a visa placed in his diplomatic passport, something that requires him to be travelling in an official capacity. Had he applied for a tourist visa in his normal passport in order to attend a function as a private citizen then there is every likelihood that he would have been successful. Dodik's problem is that he sees himself as anything but a normal citizen and wouldn't sink as low as to simply apply for the same visa as Joe Public. In the same way that footballers are given complimentary tickets for matches for friends and family so the transition team and Trump's friends almost certainly have tickets for the inauguration to hand out. The recipients of these are no more official guests of Mr trump than the footballers' families are official guests of whichever club they play for.

    As for 'Drain the Swamp', Trump has disowned this slogan and the sentiment behind it, having already appointed a number of swamp dwellers to his new team, not least Reince Priebus.

    That’s easy the Sarajevo US Embassy staff are very much like Albanians so you would make sure you still have your watch after leaving.

    First you should know that most of the US ambassadors worldwide will be replaced next spring. Second you must be aware that the lame monkey is doing it best to create problems for Trump. So the story may quite be as ridiculous as Dodok says. Because the invitation could come from Trump while the visas are still issued by the nigger's men. I find it very good anyway both for Dodik and Serbia. Maybe BIH will be the first to stop to exist. Then Serbia and Albania will divide KIM. Then will be juKANovic's turn because we need no khans in 21 century.

    The Sarajevo embassy is full of liars. They are part of that 'swamp' that Trump is talking about. Drain the swamp should include the dangerous warmongers in these embassies around the world. What event did they tell you Dodik paid to go to? Can you show me where I can buy tickets too?! And if this is the case, why did they have to block Dodik's visa if he's not doing something important? They are scared that RS can build a relationship to the Trump administration outside the influence of the U.S. embassy in Sarajevo. These are the same people who wanted Hillary to win! The link is the Austrian Freedom Party. I can 100% confirm that their leaders frequently visit Banja Luka. And just recently, they were up at Trump tower meeting with General Flynn who is Trump's pro-Russia national security advisor. So the invitation is very real.

    I am surprised that Serb media did not report the news about Rambo aka Ramush Haradinaj being invited officially for inauguration!?
    (the truth, 27 December 2016 18:39)

    The inauguration is attended by foreign heads of state of which Haradinaj is not. He's not even apart of the government of the fake country he claims he represents!!! Check your sources, friend.

    And this clown was hired as some government official to make public policy and carry out activities that affect thousands and thousands of people's lives? This is so sad and so pathetic that he actually represents people in some capacity but highly entertaining. Then Serbs wonder why they are in the position that they are in.

  23. Makes perfect sense. If he's going there based on an invitation of a friend who happened to be in Trump's election team, Dodik should have applied for a simple tourist visa, since his trip is obviously not an official state invitation, but only for touristic reasons.

  24. WtH: You are right to be annoyed with B92 but this is not the first time that stories have not been properly researched. My information from contacts at the Embassy in Sarajevo is that Dodik does not have an official invitation for the inauguration but simply a ticket to a ball that he himself has purchased. If Trump had invited Dodik in an official capacity he would have received a visa; no ambassador hoping to keep their job when the new administration takes office would play the type of games that Dodik is suggesting. The Bosnian Foreign Minister (a Serb) has confirmed that no official invitation has been sent to Dodik, albeit Crnadak is from the PDP and may have an axe to grind. Dodik could always simply apply for a tourist visa and attend whatever balls he wants. Equally he could stay at home and address some of the serious issues facing both the RS and BiH as a whole.
