Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Florin Krasniqi (born 1964 in Kosovo, in present day Kosovo[a]) is a multimillionaire Kosovar-American businessman and political activist. Krasniqi was a mathematics high-school teacher in Vranoc, Kosovo, when he fled to the U.S., sneaking into the country from Mexico in the trunk of a white Cadillac on Christmas Eve, 1988, aged 24. He started out as a roofer and is former owner of Triangle General Contractors, a roofing company in Brooklyn, NY. In 1998-99, he raised $30 million from the Albanian community in the United States for the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) and smuggled hundreds of high-powered American sniper rifles to Kosovo for guerrillas, which were distributed by his extended family clan in the region. One of his cousins, Adrian Krasniqi, was one of the founding members of the KLA. Adrian was an engineering student in Pristina in 1996 when it is claimed that he lost faith in Kosovo's pacifist government and joined a cell of the then-underground KLA. He headed up the rebels weapons-smuggling operation and was the first guerrilla to die in a KLA uniform. Another cousin, Xhevdet Krasniqi, was also involved in the weapons-smuggling.
