Kosovo decorated former US president Bill Clinton with an "Order of Freedom" medal on Tuesday in gratitude for his support for the former Serbian province as it cleaved away from Belgrade 20 years ago this week.

As president, Clinton ordered US troops to join the 1999 NATO intervention that ultimately ousted Serb forces from Kosovo, where they had been battling ethnic Albanian rebels.

The move has made him a hero in Pristina, where he landed Tuesday ahead of the 20th anniversary of June 12 -- the day when NATO troops entered Kosovo and the war was over.

In a ceremony broadcast on TV, a smiling Clinton was handed the medal by President Hashim Thaci.

3. Good to hear about this because there is nothing on the Kosovo Consulate in Des Moines'

facebook page. They wouldn't want to upset the GOP in Iowa.

5. Strange headline - 'freedom medal' ...

almost like "gee, just another medal to toss in the drawer." Bill Clinton and Kosovo was pretty important news in the '90's!
