1993: US Begins Construction on Airfield Used for Bosnia Arms Pipeline

The US government, in collaboration with Hasan Cengic and his father Halid Cengic, starts work on an airport in Visoko, Bosnia, northwest of Sarajevo. This will become a major destination of a secret US arms pipeline into Bosnia. (Wiebes 2003, pp. 179) US Special Forces are apparently secretly involved in the construction. (Harris 12/3/1995) The Cengics are radical Muslims and Hasan Cengic is heavily involved with an illegal weapons pipeline into Bosnia controlled by radical militants (see Mid-1991-1996). The airport will be completed in late 1994 (see Late 1994-Late 1995).
