A recent piece of disinformation, aimed at addressing the disputed issues in the region regarding territories, was published or republished by more than 50 media outlets in the Balkans region. It is focused on several statements of Steven E. Meyer about the potential future make-up of the region in the context of solving the most important political issues in the Balkans.
Most of his statements can be viewed as very biased and mostly promoting the interests of Serbs in the region. Apart from that, the articles claim that Steven E. Meyer is "former head of CIA" and, if we look into his biography available on the web site of Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security, where he teaches, we can see that his position in this agency, which he left in 2011, was analyst and manager and that he was a deputy head of an interagency working group for the Balkans in the 1990s. His role in the CIA is heavily inflated and false.
Moreover, all of these reports fail to mention another fact - Steven E. Meyer is currently closely cooperating with the main Government of Republika Srpska lobbyist in Washington, Obrad Kesić, being a part of the same lobbyist company. This is not the first and unique case of using disinformation to inflate the importance of certain people in the political discourse in BiH and the region but it is one of the most blatant and dangerous in the local context.
