Update: March 16, 2009.

PHOTO OF EVIL: Srebrenica genocide suspect, Milenko Krstic, on left (in glasses), waits in his seat to cheer for his daughter Danijela, now Miss Oregon. Next to him is his wife Branka and their daughter Aleksandra. The photo was taken at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on Jan. 24, 2009 during the 2009 Miss American Pageant.

Milenko Krstic (52), the father of Miss Oregon, was an active member of a Bosnian Serb army’s Zvornik brigade. The unit participated in the mass killings of 8,000 to 10,000 unarmed Bosniaks (Muslims) and a forcible deportation at least 25,000 people during the 1995 Srebrenica genocide. Krstic admittedly worked in the headquarters of the Bosnian Serb army, providing logistical support to the unit responsible for terrorizing Muslims in and around Srebrenica and committing genocide in July 1995.


Milenko Krstic’s family enjoys a comfortable life in the United States, while bodies of Muslim victims, many of them children, rot in Srebrenica genocide mass graves. His daughter, Danijela Krstic (24), was crowned in June and serves as queen of the Oregon pageant. However, she failed to make the top 15 in the Miss America pageant and didn’t make the finals.

We found Daniela Krstic’s publicly listed E-mail address (missoregon2008@gmail.com) via The Oregonian article. We asked her, Does your father intend to apologize to the relatives of Srebrenica genocide victims for actively serving in the genocidal army?

She hasn’t responded to our question, yet. Like most Serbs, she must be proud of her father’s involvement in the extermination of Srebrenica Muslims. After all, it is no secret that majority of Serbs suffer from extreme Bosniakophobia – a prejudice and hatred against Bosniaks Muslims. This combined hatred and prejudice fuel their continued Srebrenica genocide denial.


In 1998 Krstic and his family emigrated to the United States. As part of a refugee application, he filled out an I-590 form, which requires applicants to disclose foreign military service. He denied having served in the military “during a sworn, personal interview administered in Belgrade.”

In 1999, he applied to become lawful permanent resident. As part of the application, Krstic filled out another form. This time, I-485 form, also required him to report any prior foreign military service. Krstic again refused to disclose his service in the genocidal army. As a result, he fraudulently obtained a green card.


According to The Oregonian, in 2005 the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia reported to U.S. immigration authorities that Krstic had served in the Bosnian Serb Army (Army of Republika Srpska) that planned and carried out the 1995 Srebrenica genocide. The alert prompted federal U.S. agents to visit Krstic’s home near Beaverton and interview him. Krstic admitted to actively serving in the genocidal army, but he denied committing any war crimes.

However, whether he took part in the mass killings is irrelevant. The fact that he assisted the genocidal army – by serving as an active member and providing logistical support to the Bosnian Serb terrorists in and around Srebrenica, as well as trying to hide his background – speaks volumes about his character.

Krstic’s militia, also known as the Bosnian Serb Army, has been designated by the International Court of Justice in The Hague as having participated in war crimes, genocide and ethnic cleansing during the Bosnian war in the early 1990s.

Federal court files show that the U.S. government also learned Krstic’s specific unit, the Zvornik Infantry Brigade, was “involved in the massacre of a large number of unarmed Muslim prisoners in 1995, in areas in close proximity to (Krstic’s) duty station.” A prosecution document said that one mass killing was at a school “in close physical proximity to battalion headquarters where records show that defendant was working at the time.”


Krstic’s brother Ostoja also seems to share Srebrenica genocide blood on his hands. According to the Associated Press, “Lawyers involved say two similar federal cases are pending in Oregon, one involving Milenko’s brother, Ostoja, and are on hold pending the appeals in Milenko Krstic’s case.”

Milenko Krstic is currently charged for committing a visa fraud. If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in jail and be deported to Bosnia, where he could face genocide charges.

    This is disgusting. They raped our women and killed our children and now they live “normal life”.We will never forget what they did to us. I hope they will get whatever they wish for Bosnians.

    Why yes, Danijela, you DID grow up in a “war-torn country.” I wonder why that was, and if any of your elders might have some responsibility for that?

    It is horrible to see families of war criminals enjoying their lives to the fullest, without even carring for innocent Srebrenica genocide victims. There is no justice in this World.

    I am not surprised that Danijela Krstic is in denial about her father. She simply cannot comprehend that her loving father is a beast that participated in the Srebrenica genocide. After all, she is his daughter. Many serial killers tend to be good parents to their children and good husbands to their wives. Notorious BTK Strangler from Wichita was reportedly respected in his community, he was a good father and a good husband. His family could had never imagined that a man responsible for gruesome crimes was a man they shared their lives with under the same roof. Milenko Krstic is no different – he is worse. He claims he had done nothing wrong. But remember, he was caught lying – not once, but twice. Like most serial murderers, he is manipulative and he has no credibility whatsoever. Bosnian prosecutors must act quick and demand Krstic extradition to Bosnia immediately.

    Update: To this date, Daniela Krstic never responded to our E-mail. It is obvious that she could not care less about the victims of Srebrenica genocide.

    No, Daniel, whatever her father has done you shouldn’t make assumptions about her. And you shouldn’t be making such sweepingly prejudiced assertions. Hyperbole undermines credibility, and every individual deserves to be judged by their own deeds and misdeeds, not anyone else’s.

    Owen said: “every individual deserves to be judged by their own deeds and misdeeds, not anyone else’s.”

    We are judging her by her own deeds. She hasn’t done anything for the victims of the Srebrenica genocide. Because she is defending her father, she is no different than him.

    Please don’t apply rules of reason when you discuss war criminals and their children. The standards you are refering to simply do not exist in these circumstances. If she wanted to show her good character, she could have said that she feels sorry for the victims of genocide instead of jumping and defending her father in the media. Shame on her! I am convinced she is proud to have a fascist as a father.

    Her father lives: of course she will not denounce him. That is only to be expected. If OJ Simpson’s children will not renounce him in public, why should we expect more of this girl?

    Remember the words of Rolf Mengele, on his father Josef, the Angel of Death at Auschwitz: “Of course I would have preferred another father.”

    If she feels the same way, it is natural for her not to wish to speak of it publicly. One expects this. It is natural to honor your father, whomever he might be.

    She is to be pitied, not hated.

    But as for her father: if he lied on his paperwork, then throw him out! For him I have no sympathy whatsoever. – RLKESQ
