 From the annals of the National Liar

Volume 0, #0, April 1, 1993


The National Liar hereby retracts the article titled “Europe to Balkans – Drop Dead”, which appeared in last month’s issue of the Liar. The story claimed that NATO’s political leaders, in cooperation with the UN and other international agencies, have chosen a policy of “malign neglect” towards the former Yugoslavian republics. The Liar alleged that this decision was based on feelings of disgust, apathy and contempt held by the average European towards the Balkans’ ancient feuds. We reported Margaret Thatcher as saying, “If they want to kill each other off, let them.”

Since then it has come to our attention that the story was, in fact, accurate in every detail;  and as such inappropriate for publication in this newspaper.

The National Liar deeply regrets the error.
