As I recall, Here is something that was discussed on RWV very early --back in 2005 when Shango made his/her debut -- :

Could Jossy be Dirty Hand?

Seeing as though, as other posters are now revealing nearly three years later, the Mansur family owns over half the island, is a member of the opposition party, and still has substantial interests in the free trade zone thing (where cigarettes are openly smuggled in and out of Aruba)...

Just a jolt of my memory banks from three years ago ...




Silverfox – I am not sure if Jossy is a friend, Dirty Hand or possibly even Shango? I have done a lot of research on Jossy and the Mansur family and their businesses, both in the US and overseas going back to 1993.

Jossy and his immediate family have direct ties to Doral and Miami, Florida. The Mansur family has ties to Florida and Maracaibo, Venezuela. (Remember Freddy Zedan – Maracaibo Venezuela).

Coincidence – when I was checking the Mansur’ businesses on the Chamber Registry a few weeks ago, it went down!

All I have right now is a lot more dots!!

http://www.hyscience.com/archives/2005/10/harrytho_1023_n.php


That past was controlled by the Arubanese Volks Partij (AVP) within which Jossy Mansur, editor of the Dairio newspaper and spokesperson for the Venezuelan-origin Mansur family, is the godfather. Many members of the Mansur family (Lebanese ancestry) maintain their Venezuelan passports. Conveniently, the Mansurs maintain economic activities in Puento Fijo, Coro, Caracas and Maracaibo Venezuela. These economic activities, despite their monopoly on many tradable commodities, center on the more clandestine forms of money laundering and drug trafficking. Exchanges between Aruba and Venezuela occur routinely with the use of fastboats, owned by the Mansur family.


The Simian:

"We are worried when people say that they won’t come, because wherever I am I always invite people to my island. It is the best advertisement.

I do have to let all of you know that bookings are up (YTD) and it is actually low-season at the moment. Which is what explains the students getting their vacation packages at US$ 1500."

Simian Says: June 28th, 2005 at 1:52 am
The Simian says that The Simian only reports developments ahead of time. The Simian thinks was is going on is shameless. Playing with feelings.
The Simian’s umbilical is buried close to the heart of the island. NOBODY EVER try to put us down. The Simian hates what he has been reading.
All things must pass.



MONEY! FINANCE! BANKS!

 


I believe that by using the term umbilical he rerers to the way he makes his living.......what feeds him......with tourism "all are well fed (Shango)

Colombo very interesting. I must say that I never believed that Carlos Ledher was actually dead. IIRC he was educated at MIT and was imprisoned in the Michigan area. He may have also been born in the US and moved back to Colombia and helped form the Medellin cartel. Also, IIRC he was killed in a plane wreck during a prison transfer, but I'll need to double check all of that.

Official Cuban documents: fugitive U.S. financier Robert Vesco dead

The Associated Press

Tuesday, May 6th 2008, 4:00 AM

HAVANA — Robert Vesco, the American fugitive who cooked up moneymaking schemes that allegedly involved everyone from Colombian drug lords to the families of U.S. presidents, died in Cuba and was buried almost six months ago, according to an official document.

A burial record at Havana's Colon Cemetery shows that a man with the same name and birthdate — Dec. 4, 1935 — died on Nov. 23 from lung cancer and was buried the next day in a private plot. He was 72.

In his lifetime, Vesco was accused of looting millions from a Swiss mutual fund, attempting to find U.S. planes for Libya and inventing a drug that he claimed could cure AIDS.

He was linked to Latin American presidents, Soviet spies, smugglers of high-technology equipment — even the CIA.

And he was good at hiding.

Writer Arthur Herzog, who once interviewed Vesco in Cuba for a biography, called him "a master of disguises," noting the infamous con man had long employed elaborate schemes to escape justice.

"I don't know for sure, but I'm not certain he's dead," Herzog said from his home in New York. He said he recently spoke with a contact in Havana who indicated he had talked with Vesco in recent weeks.

Vesco was so crafty, a DNA test on the buried corpse would be necessary to know for certain it was him, Herzog said.

U.S. officials in Cuba said Monday they were unaware of Vesco's death.

Vesco evaded American justice during a quarter-century odyssey through the Caribbean and Central America after fleeing the U.S. in 1972.

It was Cuban courts that finally put him in prison in 1996, convicting him of marketing a drug, which he claimed could cure cancer and AIDS, without government permission.

His business partner Donald A. Nixon Jr., the nephew of former President Richard Nixon — was detained along with Vesco, but was later released.

Vesco ended up serving most of his 13-year sentence, though it was not clear when he was released.

Vesco is still wanted in the United States on charges of looting $224 million from a investors in a Swiss-based mutual stock fund.

He also was indicted for allegedly contributing $200,000  to Nixon's 1972 campaign to try to head off a probe by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Two Nixon Cabinet members were later tried and acquitted.

Vesco renounced his American citizenship and traveled around the Caribbean and Central America in a yacht and various private planes — including a custom Boeing 707 equipped with a sauna.

He settled in Costa Rica, but was kicked out after a new president took office there in 1978.

thirty years of america's drug war: a chronology

Late 1960s Recreational drug use rises in U.S.

In late 1960s recreational drug use becomes fashionable among young, white, middle class Americans. The social stigmatization previously associated with drugs lessens as their use becomes more mainstream. Drug use becomes representative of protest and social rebellion in the era's atmosphere of political unrest.

1968 Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs is founded.

The Johnson administration consolidates several drug agencies into the Justice Dept.'s Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD). The move is intended to diminish turf wars between the various agencies, but tensions between the BNDD and Customs continue.

1969 Study links crime and heroin addiction.

Psychiatrist Dr. Robert DuPont conducts urinalysis of everyone entering the D.C. jail system in August of 1969. He finds 44% test positive for heroin. DuPont convinces the city's Mayor Walter Washington to allow him to provide methadone to heroin addicts.

1969 (Sept. 21)   Operation Intercept essentially closes the Mexican border.

In an attempt to reduce marijuana smuggling from Mexico, the Customs Dept., under Commissioner Myles Ambrose, subjects every vehicle crossing the Mexican border to a three-minute inspection. The operation lasts two weeks and wreaks economic havoc on both sides of the border. Mexico agrees to more aggressively attack marijuana trade, but the operation didn't seriously impact the flow of marijuana into U.S.

1970 NORML is founded.

The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) is founded by Keith Stroup. The group lobbies for decriminalization of marijuana.

1970 Narcotics Treatment Administration is founded.

The Nixon administration provides funds to allow Dr. Robert DuPont to expand his methadone program in Washington D.C. The program is controversial because some believe methadone to be nothing more than a substitute for heroin, and others feel there are racial undertones behind the effort. However, one year after the program begins, burglaries in D.C. decrease by 41%.

1970 (October 27) Congress passes the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act This law consolidates previous drug laws and reduces penalties for marijuana possession. It also strengthens law enforcement by allowing police to conduct "no-knock" searches. This act includes the Controlled Substances Act, which establishes five categories ("schedules") for regulating drugs based on their medicinal value and potential for addiction.

1971 (May) Soldiers in Vietnam develop heroin addiction. Congressmen Robert Steele (R-CT) and Morgan Murphy (D-IL) release an explosive report on the growing heroin epidemic among U.S. servicemen in Vietnam.

1971 (June 17) Nixon declares war on drugs.

At a press conference Nixon names drug abuse as "public enemy number one in the United States." He announces the creation of the Special Action Office for Drug Abuse Prevention (SAODAP), to be headed by Dr. Jerome Jaffe, a leading methadone treatment specialist. During the Nixon era, for the only time in the history of the war on drugs, the majority of funding goes towards treatment, rather than law enforcement.

1971 (September) Operation Golden Flow goes into effect in order to attack habits of U.S. servicemen.

In June 1971, the U.S. military announces they will begin urinalysis of all returning servicemen. The program goes into effect in September and the results are favorable: only 4.5% of the soldiers test positive for heroin.

1972 (January)   The Office of Drug Abuse Law Enforcement is founded.

The Nixon Administration creates the Office of Drug Abuse Law Enforcement (ODALE) to establish joint federal/local task forces to fight the drug trade at the street level. Myles Ambrose is appointed director.

1972 The French Connection is broken up.

U.S. and French law enforcement initiate a series of successful busts of the "French Connection," a Marseilles-based heroin industry controlled by Corsican gangsters and the U.S. Mafia. The results are soon evident in a heroin shortage on the U.S. East Coast.

1973 (July)   The Drug Enforcement Administration is established.

President Nixon sets up this "super agency" to handle all aspects of the drug problem. The DEA consolidates agents from the BNDD, Customs, the CIA and ODALE. The administrator of the new agency is John R. Bartels.

1974 (August 9) President Nixon resigns.

The new Ford administration is preoccupied with inflation, jobs and an energy crisis. The DEA remains the legacy of Nixon's war on drugs.

1975 (September) Ford administration releases White Paper on Drug Abuse.

The Domestic Council Drug Abuse Task Force releases a report that recommends that "priority in Federal efforts in both supply and demand reduction be directed toward those drugs which inherently pose a greater risk to the individual and to society." The White Paper names marijuana a "low priority drug" in contrast to heroin, amphetamines and mixed barbiturates.

1975 (November 22) Large cocaine seizure indicates significant growth of cocaine trade.

Colombian police seize 600 kilos of cocaine from a small plane at the Cali airport--the largest cocaine seizure to date. In response, drug traffickers begin a vendetta--"Medellin Massacre." 40 people die in Medellin on one weekend. This event signals the new power of Colombia's cocaine industry, headquartered in Medellin.

1976 Carter campaigns on the decriminalization of marijuana.

Noting that several states had already decriminalized marijuana, Jimmy Carter campaigns in favor of relinquishing federal criminal penalties for possession of up to one ounce of marijuana. Carter's drug czar, Dr. Peter Bourne does not view marijuana, or even cocaine, as a serious public health threat.

1976 (August) Anti-drug parents' movement begins.

Troubled by the presence of marijuana at her 13-year old daughter's birthday party, Keith Schuchard and her neighbor Sue Rusche form Families in Action, the first parents' organization designed to fight teenage drug abuse. Schuchard writes a letter to Dr. Robert DuPont, then head of the National Institute of Drug Abuse, which leads DuPont to abandon his support for decriminalization.

1977 Media glamorizes cocaine use.

A May 30, 1977 Newsweek story on cocaine is later accused to have glamorized the drug's affects and underestimated its dangers. The story reports that "Among hostesses in the smart sets of Los Angeles and New York, a little cocaine, like Dom Perignon and Beluga caviar, is now de rigueur at dinners. Some partygivers pass it around along with the canapes on silver trays... the user experiences a feeling of potency, of confidence, of energy."

1978 Asset forfeiture introduced

The Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act is amended. It now allows law enforcement to seize all money and/or "other things of value furnished or intended to be furnished by any person in exchange for a controlled substance [and] all proceeds traceable to such an exchange."

1979   Carlos Lehder purchases property on Norman's Cay.

Carlos Lehder, a key member of the alliance that would become the Medellin cartel, revolutionizes the cocaine trade with his purchase of 165 acres on the Bahamian island of Norman's Cay.

The alliance between the Ochoa family, Pablo Escobar, Carlos Lehder and Jose Gonzalo Rodriguez Gacha strengthens into what will become known as the "Medellin Cartel." The traffickers cooperate in the manufacturing, distribution and marketing of their cocaine. The kidnapping of Marta Ochoa by Colombian guerrillas consolidates the alliance. The traffickers form a group named MAS, a Spanish acronym for "Death to Kidnappers," announcing the imminent execution of any guerrilla kidnappers. Marta Ochoa is released without harm several months later.

1981 U.S.-Colombia extradition treaty ratified.

The U.S. and Colombia ratify a bilateral extradition treaty, which they had previously approved in 1979. When Reagan assumes office and prioritizes the war on drugs, extradition becomes the greatest fear of the Colombian traffickers.

1982 Downfall of Norman's Cay.

In response to U.S. pressure, the Bahamian government begins to crack down on Carlos Lehder's operation on Norman's Cay. Lehder moves his residence from the island in 1982, but operations continue for another year.

Panamanian General Manuel Noriega and Pablo Escobar cut a deal which allows Escobar to ship cocaine through Panama for $100,000 per load. The two had met in 1981 when Noriega mediated negotiations for the release of Marta Ochoa.

1982 (January 28) South Florida Drug Task Force is formed.

1982 (March 9) Largest cocaine seizure ever raises U.S. awareness of Medellin cartel.

The seizure of 3,906 pounds of cocaine, valued at over $100 million wholesale, from a Miami International Airport hangar permanently alters U.S. law enforcement's approach towards the drug trade. They realize Colombian traffickers must be working together because no single trafficker could be behind a shipment this large.

1984 Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No" Movement begins.

Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No" anti-drug campaign becomes a centerpiece of the Reagan administration's anti-drug campaign. The movement focuses on white, middle class children and is funded by corporate and private donations.

1984 (April 30) Assassination of the Colombian attorney general fuels the extradition controversy.

Colombian Minister of Justice Rodrigo Lara Bonilla, who had crusaded against the Medellin cartel, is assassinated by a gang of motorcycle thugs. President Belisario Betancur who opposed extradiction, announces "We will extradite Colombians." Carlos Lehder is the first to be put on the list. The crackdown forces the Ochoas, Escobar and Rodriguez Gacha to flee to Panama for several months.

mid 1980s Cocaine transport routes move into Mexico.

Because of the South Florida Drug Task Force's successful crackdown on drugs traffickers turn to Mexican marijuana smugglers to move cocaine across the 2000 mile U.S.-Mexican border. By the mid-1980s it becomes the major transportation route for cocaine into the U.S.

1985 (February) DEA agent Enrique Camerena is kidnapped and murdered in Mexico.

Camarena's disappearance spotlights the pervasive drug corruption in Mexican law enforcement. The Mexicans' lack of cooperation leads Commissioner of Customs William Von Raab to order a six-day Operation Intercept-style crackdown on the Mexican border.

Reagan signs an enormous omnibus drug bill, which appropriates $1.7 billion to fight the drug crisis. $97 million is allocated to build new prisons, $200 million for drug education and $241 million for treatment. The bill's most consequential action is the creation of mandatory minimum penalties for drug offenses. Possession of at least one kilogram of heroin or five kilograms of cocaine is punishable by at least ten years in prison. In response to the crack epidemic, the sale of five grams of the drug leads to a mandatory five-year sentence. Mandatory minimums become increasingly criticized over the years for promoting significant racial disparities in the prison population, because of the differences in sentencing for crack vs. powder cocaine.

in some circles during the 60s
burying an umbilical cord or placenta was the "thing" to do
so I've always leaned toward that interpretation

(guess you had to be there, LOL)

A Bonairean sage (it’s not necesswary to name him) once explained to us that there are two ways people can bind themselves to a piece of land. One way, as everybody knows, is to bury the baby’s umbilical cord in the soil where it was born. That is why people who were born on Bonaire always remind you with emphasis that their umbilical cord was buried here. It means that the person who says this is a ‘legitimate’ Bonairean, that is to say, he or she is indigenous to the island, (‘autochthonous’ as they say in Holland; ‘autochtoon’).

Throw the umbilical cord
The other way to become a ‘legítimate’ or autochthonous Bonairean is to throw (down) or sow the umbilical cord.

Now, the word ‘tira’ in Papiamento (= ‘throw’) has at least one dubious connotation. We must presume that the sage did not have the sexual connotation in mind when he was telling us this. He just wanted to explain that there is another way to bury your umbilical cord in Bonairean soil. Instead of physically burying it, you can return to where you were born, collect some soil from where your original cord was buried, come back to Bonaire and scatter it on Bonairean soil, for instance in your back yard. This way you will have thrown (‘tira’) your umbilical cord on Bonairean soil. You can do this either physically or mentally.

Indigenous Bonairean
Many people have already thrown (or sown) their umbilical cord in this way into the Bonairean soil. They have thus become just as ‘legitimate’ as the ones whose umbilical cords was actually buried in Bonairean soil upon their birth.

By the way, we point out that the word ‘legítimate’ is not correct in this context. We cannot say that people who have not buried or thrown their umbilical cord in Bonairean soil are illegitimate.

Everybody is legitimate. The only thing we can say is that there are indigenous people of Bonaire (the ones who have buried or thrown their umbilical cords here on Bonaire), and there are people (certainly ‘legítimate’ also) who like Bonaire, but have no intention to stay.

Throwing one’s umbilical cord means accepting responsibility

Everybody is free to throw his umbilical cord on Bonairean soil, if he or she wishes to do so. But it brings responsibility with it. If you do it, you accept responsibility for the well-being of Bonaire (of course, together with all other Bonaireans).
http://www.arcocarib.com/bonaire/article/bury-or-throw-the-umbilical-cord/

Cultural practices and beliefs
The placenta often plays an important role in various human cultures, with many societies conducting rituals regarding its disposal. In the Western world, the placenta is most often incinerated.

Some cultures bury the placenta for various reasons. The Māori of New Zealand traditionally bury the placenta from a newborn child to emphasize the relationship between humans and the earth (although it is rumored even more will freeze the placenta to be eaten at a later time). Similarly, the Navajo bury the placenta and umbilical cord at a specially-chosen site, particularly if the baby dies during birth. In Cambodia and Costa Rica, burial of the placenta protects and ensures the health of the baby and the mother. If a mother dies in childbirth, the Aymara of Bolivia bury the placenta in a secret place so that the mother's spirit will not return to claim her baby's life.

The placenta is believed by some communities to have power over the lives of the baby or its parents. The Kwakiutl of British Columbia bury girls' placentas to give the girl skill in digging clams, and expose boys' placentas to ravens to encourage future prophetic visions. In Turkey, the proper disposal of the placenta and umbilical cord is believed to promote devoutness in the child later in life. In Ukraine, Transylvania, and Japan, interaction with a disposed placenta is thought to influence the parents' future fertility. The ancient Egyptians believed that the placenta was imbued with magical powers.

Several cultures believe the placenta to be or have been alive, often a relative of the baby. Nepalese think of the placenta as a friend of the baby's; Malaysian Orang Asli regard it as the baby's older sibling. The Ibo of Nigeria consider the placenta the deceased twin of the baby, and conduct full funeral rites for it. Native Hawaiians believe that the placenta is a part of the baby, and traditionally plant it with a tree which can then grow alongside the child.

In some cultures, the placenta is eaten, a practice known as placentophagy.

Ya know Colombo, I never totally and fully trusted GHWB and I still don't. His era and the years directly there after, are some of the most tumultuous in American history where the drug trade is concerned.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Casey

Biography

A native of Queens, New York, Casey graduated from Fordham University in 1934 and earned a law degree from St. John's University School of Law in 1937. During World War II, he worked for the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) — the predecessor to the CIA — and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for meritorious achievement. After practicing corporate law in New York, he served in the Nixon Administration as the chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission from 1971 to 1973[1]; this position led to his being called as a prosecution witness against former Attorney General John N. Mitchell and former Commerce Secretary Maurice Stans in an influence-peddling case stemming from international financier Robert Vesco's $200,000 contribution to the Nixon reelection campaign.[2]

Casey headed up the successful presidential campaign of Ronald Reagan in 1980, and served on the transition team following the election. After Reagan took office, he named Casey to the post of Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.[3] During his tenure at the CIA, Casey played a large part in the shaping of Reagan's foreign policy, particularly its approach to Soviet international activity. Based on a book, The Terror Network, Casey believed that the Soviet Union was the source of most terrorist activity in the world, in spite of C.I.A. analysts providing evidence that this was in fact black propaganda by the CIA itself. Casey obtained a report from a professor that agreed with his view, which convinced Ronald Reagan that there was a threat.[4]

Casey oversaw the re-expansion of the Intelligence Community, in particular the CIA, to funding and human resource levels greater than those before resource cuts during the Carter Administration. During his tenure restrictions were lifted on the use of the CIA to directly, covertly influence the internal and foreign affairs of countries relevant to American policy.

This period of the Cold War saw an increase of the Agency's anti-Soviet activities around the world.

Notably he oversaw covert assistance to the mujahadeen resistance in Afghanistan, with a budget of over $1 billion by working closely with Akhtar Abdur Rahman (the Director General of ISI of Pakistan), the Solidarity movement in Poland, and a number of coups and attempted coups in South- and Central America.

According to a 600-page report by the CIA inspector general, Frederick Hitz, the CIA under Casey was complicit in the Contras' massive narco-trafficking operation which resulted in the crack epidemic.[5]

Casey was also the principal architect of the arms-for-hostages deal that became known as the Iran-Contra affair.

Hours before Casey was scheduled to testify before Congress about his knowledge of Iran-Contra, he was reported to have been rendered incapable of speech, and was later hospitalized. In his 1987 book, Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA 1981-1987, Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward, who had interviewed Casey on numerous occasions, said that he had gained entry to Casey's hospital room for a final, four-minute long encounter — a claim that was met with disbelief in many quarters, and adamant denial by Casey's wife, Sofia. According to Woodward, when he asked Casey if he knew about the diversion of funds to the Nicaraguan Contras, "His head jerked up hard. He stared, and finally nodded yes."[6]

Caps… I am a little confused, as usual after reading your posts in the main thread. LOL

Royal house as pertaining to the riddles, Mirian’s “orange regal visage”, has always seemed to be referring to The Royal House of Nassau.

Just wondering if your question is totally unrelated to Mirian’s post? TIA

Hi Mum, actually I have not figured out who Luis is and have stopped looking. It will sometimes just pop up when you are not looking - so that's the approach for now.

+++++++++++++++

Colombo and all, I would like your opinions.

I have been tearing through the DOJ and other government agencies and find a lot of info that makes me scratch my head. Most of this is usually related to the war on drugs or the pretend war of drugs and the SA entities..

I can really only come up with a few ideas what is really going on here.

My first thought is the war on drugs is real and the US Federal Government is actively pursing all leads and trying to rid the streets of drugs. In this scenario there are many agencies that have been set up and this alone is costing billions of dollars and then there is the financial aid to the SA countries that claim to need the help. There is also the military hardware end which also costs billions that is just given to the SA countries.

My second thought is this whole thing is a major sham as the documents and info suggest. In this scenario the government pretends to be fighting a war on drugs while actively doing nothing and in many cases is actually facilitating the operations on their own. (i.e. planes, cargo ships and CIA operatives, such as Barry Seal). Also in this scenario, I am finding that the USFG is playing an active role with the very people they claim to be on the hunt for. I notice that at some point the USFG then turns on the suppliers and either kills them or arrests them. I can not help but remember that GHWB was the head of the CIA and when Reagan won the nomination he said Bush would never be his running mate and then the very next day announced that Bush would in fact be his running mate. I have posted about this aspect before. I wonder who got to Reagan and suspect this player is the real power behind these clandestine operations. This player wanted Bush in and as  I have posted, this period becomes the most dangerous in American history where the war on drugs in concerned. I have to wonder if that was the intent or was this a by product. This person may no longer hold that position, but most likely someone does. I also get the feeling that this all goes back to Yale and friendships formed more than 70 years ago. In this scenario the government entities operate with impunity and can not ever be revealed yet alone be identified.

Also in scenario two - there are what I would call middle men or facilitators, such as Robert Vesco. At some point the government then also turns on these guys and tries to kill them. It's hard to now how many "middle men" there really are or how many have been killed as the stated profession is not CIA "middle man". Usually when a major operation is about to be uncovered, the CIA will begin to clean up their baggage and eliminate evidence. In these cases there is no reason to clean up a the operations are secret and even if Cogress got wind of it, there is little they could do without outing the operatives. That's a big no-no. 

This does not have alliance to anyone party such as the Republicans or Democrats. It goes on no matter who is in the White House. This leads me to believe it is career bureaucrats that are the actual power behind the war on drugs. Presidents come and go, the career bureaucrats are there for life.

A very astute monkey sent me an email that pointed out something very interesting here that Mum might want to see.  This was posted in what I refer to as the NAH thread but it's really the NCD thread.  They key here is the reference to the five men that have been interviewed.  I have my five...anyone else want to take a stab at who they think those five men were? Keep in mind that this story was published on June 15, 2005. The story would have to be written at least 2 days or more before the June 15 date. Going back to Mum's fave topic...5th suspect. LOL

FBI playing second fiddle in Aruba
by Norman 'Gus' Thomas
Caribbean Net News Senior Regional Correspondent
E-mail: rc@caribbeannetnews.com
Wednesday, June 15, 2005

ORANJESTAD, Aruba: Top sleuths from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Miami have been slithering through the grass on Aruba for the last 14 days but the role these highly-trained agents have been forced to play is that of “second fiddle" to the Aruban police, who have been struggling to crack the case of the missing 18-year-old Natalee Holloway, whose disappearance on May 30 has drawn the international media to this Dutch Caribbean island of just over 97,000 people.

Officials at Aruba's Foreign Affairs office told Caribbean Net News that the Miami-based FBI agents were invited to the island as observers only, and the Aruban police are the ones "calling the shots."
This has annoyed FBI brass in the US, prompting one senior FBI agent to wonder aloud: "Are they having an election down there or are they looking for a missing person? What's this ******* status stuff all about?"

According to Judy Orihuela, FBI spokesperson at the Miami office, the government of Aruba has only asked for minimal FBI help from the organisation.
FBI sources told Caribbean Net News that there is one agent from Barbados, along with six from Miami, who are on the ground in Aruba and will "help" when they are asked to.
Police in Aruba confirmed to Caribbean Net News that the FBI are here as observers and were part of a team that was allowed to watch from behind a glass when Aruban police interviewed five men held in connection with Holloway's disappearance.
Limited in technology, the Aruban police have also sought the help of the FBI in analysing a DNA sample that was removed from the rear seat of a vehicle belonging to one of the suspects. Caribbean Net News has learnt the DNA tests came back negative when tested for blood.
The slow pace of the investigation has angered many, forcing Holloway's mother to make public criticism of the slow pace.
The case has caused great embarrassment for the Aruba authorities. In one instance, the Deputy Commissioner told the media that there was a confession and that one of the accused was leading the police to the scene of Police. Minutes after, that line was changed and officials had no more to say about the “confession”, saying rather that they had reached a "critical" point in their in their investigations.

No one has made any further comment on what the Deputy Commissioner had said earlier.

However, Holloway's mother is of the view that the authorities could be seeking to protect the three young men who were last to see her daughter. The trio told police they had dropped off the 18-year-old at her hotel following a party session.
Police, when pressed, told Caribbean Net News that video tapes from surveillance cameras at the hotel show no evidence of this.

Meanwhile, FBI agents will stay in Aruba and continue to observe from behind the glass, until they called upon to run any further errands.
