Biden criticized for announced meeting with Taci

WASHINGTON - Washington Free Beacon expressed criticism of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden for his decision to meet with Kosovo Prime Minister Hasim Taci, who is suspected of human organ trafficking and organized crime.

Vice President Joe Biden is set to welcome to the White House a man who is currently under investigation for trafficking human organs, and identified as one of the heads of a crime ring involved in drug and weapon trafficking during the war in Kosovo.

This is striking even for Joe Biden. And can you imagine if the president (Barack Obama) does a drop-in on the meeting?, an unnamed official of the Republican Party said.

Washington Free Beacon recalled that Guardian outlined the case against Taci in a 2010 article identifying him as the boss of a network that began operating criminal rackets in the runup to the Kosovo war, and the man who exerted control over the heroin trade.

Figures from Taci's inner circle are also accused of taking captives across the border into Albania after the war, where a number of Serbs are said to have been murdered for their organs, which were sold on the black market, said the
Washington-based media.

Taci has arrived in Washington, and according to Pristina press, he is now expecting to be received by U.S. President Barack Obama, though there is still no confirmation that the meeting will take place.

The Department of State confirmed that Taci will confer Wednesday with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday.
