Aruba: Hope a' dope

It's not only Barack Obama who's doing the hope a' dope to dodge the truth, to articulate a story to soothe the ego, and avoid any honesty at all. Floating ideas not based in any reality, like high paid defense lawyers for the guilty. Where proving it is more of a campaign and a game than a committment to justice.

Creating distractions and fracturing the guilty and making even the targets of corruption impossible to pin down. Dodging and weaving and lying.

Racehorse Hanes, the Texas lawyer who got many well-heeled defendants off from serious charges had a wall in his office which displayed the murder weapons of his "innocent" clients...

Holland has been doing this for 3 1/2 years in Aruba and it's depravity on every level makes it the portrait for how violent a world we're in. And how much violence it takes to resist this kind of savagery.

And self-styled diplomats talk about human rights and victim's rights but unless it's on a large enough scale they just ignore all the little people. The Holloway family suffers it's pain in public so the Dutch can feel shame in private.

The Defensive Dutch, so self-conscious about "appearances" that they actually believed the black on white crime story they floated would work. And the innocent black men were just collateral damage. "It could be true" if we say it enough times.

And because accountability has been so diluted, and the story pieced out so scattershot, filtered by lies meant to distract, it's just too much work for weak and self-conscious populice in the U.S. and in Holland. Haley Barbour, the bloated senator would blend easily in the Dutch Parliment.

Jan van der straaten and Karin Janssen knowingly arrested 2 innocent black men for 10 days to clean up Natalee and the mess they made of her.

It rings even more sick as time goes by. The shame living inside these people is like a bomb that's ready. And shameful people act suspicious and use deceit to keep their minds occupied.

"We'll get back to you."

Like Obama's arrogant "we'll tell you what really happened" so has Aruba tried to describe a possible scenario. But the Public Relations description is just a story.

How can 9 people be arrested for charges ranging from premeditated murder to heavy battery to rape to kidnapping and at the same time call this a "disappearance?"

Maybe the tourism board really is in charge of the investigation. But they have clearly failed, despite the rhetoric, every time AHATA does the translation of murder, or rape, it comes out "disappeared."

"It's like she just vanished," said Arlene Schippers, this comment from an Attorney in Aruba paid to speak for AHATA and interpret and translate the charges.

Yet they also call it a "tragedy" and "mistakes were made." All words vague enough to attempt to create doubt. Yet they never get to a point, just a jousting of phrases, retractions, misunderstanding of the Aruba legal system.

A place where there is no reason to tell the truth, where there are no consequences for lying and deceiving. Dodging and weaving, letting out snippets of what was a savage crime.

The self consciousness and denial so blatant, so detached from any believability and scattered as to remove any target big enough to be caught.

Now there is a call from Rudy Croes to investigate the investigation. But they already said "mistakes were made." What mistakes? And are they "mistakes" like Natalee is "disappeared?"

The guilty go quiet, don't want to discuss it, move on, we have other things to do. Trapped by their own shame they can't even think about the next victim. Watching the downward spiral of Joran van der sloot is like a Dutch Truman Show.

Paulus van der sloot is the only one arrested for premediated murder. Why? Where in the beach story does that fit?

The van der sloot house is the one place they never speak about and yet the court in Aruba has already confirmed that Paulus had at least 2 contacts with Natalee the night she "disappeared."

What? 2 contacts with Natalee, when ?

There was hope in Hans Mos, and yet the reality is he has displayed the same arrogance and lack of spine as all the other Dutch officials with titles. Like a constipated bird sitting on his shitload of evidence making sure no one sees how much he hasn't done, he tightlips his comments like an insane teenager. Petty, self conscious, totally phony.

Exactly like the last Dutch Prosecutor, Karin Janssen. False hopes that never had a chance. Mr. Mos is now saying he has some more evidence that's just come in, and he may not be able to close the case this month. His dodging and weaving, or shucking and jiving, the hope a' dope meant to outlast the call for justice.

Is it finally clear that all this resistance is not for Joran van der sloot? I'm almost ready to call him irrelevant at this point. He's just a by product of his elders, specifically his father.

Paulus van der sloot. Arrested on charges of premediated murder.
Paulus van der sloot. The court in Aruba finds he had 2 contacts with Natalee Holloway on the night she "disappeared."

That doesn't seem like a coverup, that seems pretty clear to me. Now Aruba, how about the rest of the story?
