A section from a US Sarajevo embassy wire dated February 12th, 2010 published by Wikileaks states:
"Many Croats -- particularly the overwhelming majority who support a third entity, and including those who do not oppose Tihic as strongly as HDZ-BiH does -- have a great admiration for Dodik, some even regarding him as a 'hero,' because of his defiance of the international community and his disdain for the 'imposition' of the BiH state. Many Croats wish their own leaders would be as outspoken and carry as much bravado as Dodik. The Croats also appreciate Dodik's public expressions of support for a third entity, despite his insistence that the territory for such an entity come exclusively from the Federation."The passage is instructive because it shows US sponsorship of "multi-ethnic" SDP, right up to using OHR to neuter Central Election Commission that had rightfully ruled SDP's entity government extralegal, is built around something the Empire knows perfectly well is a lie. US officials are perfectly aware their favorite political party in Bosnia can not speak for Croats of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
As the wire states, Bosnian-Herzegovinan Croats overwhelmingly support a third entity, a policy goal of HDZ BiH, which is the exact opposite of a unitary BiH — the policy goal of SDP. If Croats have an objection against their political leaders it is that they are too timid to stand against the foreigners pushing for centralization as boldly as Dodik does.
Foreigners stood behind the coalition gathered by SDP as it filled the nationality quota that sets aside government posts for Croats with its appointees, feigning bewilderment when HDZ BiH insisted SDP and the parties around it can not possibly represent Bosnian-Herzegovian Croats, who after all, overwhelmingly did not vote for them. The bit in this cable shows it is not the case Americans do not know they are supporting effective disenfranchisement of Dodik-appreciating Croats, they do — that's the point.
