A website dedicated to providing the truth of what is or is not being accomplished in Aruba called ArubaTruth.com has decided to inform us as to the truth of the Dr. Phil interview. With all that has gone on in the last month of the Kalpoe brothers being rearrested then released, Joran Van der Sloot being released and then allowed to fly off to The Netherlands and all restrictions against the suspects lifted by a Judge during the last set of appeals; ArubaTruth has decided to inform us on the truth of a syndicated American Talk show, The Dr Phil Show that did a segment on missing teen Natalee Holloway? Folks, where were the posts explaining how on earth these three suspects were allowed to walk out of prison with no restrictions? Allowed to walk among the Aruban people knowing the evidence that exists even if many wish to discount it? ArubaTruth.com stated the following:
His entire program was designed to prove that Aruba was responsible for the inability of the office of the prosecution to charge the three suspects with either kidnapping, rape or murder. No information was allowed in the program that would have refuted any of the charges by Beth Holloway Twitty or the other guests.
Let me just make one thing perfectly clear. I have visited Aruba over 25 times in my life since I was the age of 5. Along the way I have met many good people. That is not to say I have also met some less than good ones as well. I and many Americans have nothing against the good and kind hearted people of Aruba; however, we do question those that have been put in charge to find justice for Natalee Holloway. The situation regarding those questioning the investigation and those that are puzzled by Judges decisions to release without restrictions have nothing to no with criticisms against the Aruban people. As much as those that seem to want to combine the two make it out to be. Like many countries, it becomes a cottage industry to keep people fighting and blaming one another while others sit back and refuse to take responsibility for their actions. I will make this observation as it would appear that there are more than just potential and alleged murder charges that may be sought in this case. After hearing certain comments from the Dr. Phil Show from Deepak Kalpoe referring to Natalee Holloway as a slut I would question the good people of Aruba especially the women if your justice department is looking out after you. Deepak Kalpoe’s own mother stated the following, “Come on, we all lie. We all lie as big people. I know that I lie sometimes“. Forget us Americans and tourists that visit Aruba, what about your own safety? Having seen how most dress and act in Aruba, does one really think that this is a normal attitude to take, especially when its discussing someone who is most likely deceased?
Blogging and being a part of the Internet in a non-traditional method of communication is free speech at its finest. The mere definition of blogging and why one gets involved is to question authority of those around you in power and do so with passion and honesty. Blogging and voicing one’s opinion on the Internet is the latest non-traditional form of “free speech” that exists in todays society and to get the real news to people who may be unaware of the events that are transpiring. I actually find the site that wishes to pronounce “truth” as somewhat eye opening as it is in fact a vehicle for a specific Government party that is in power. In fact I would go so far as to say that this web site, Aruba Truth, is not about the Aruban people but about a particular point of view that a government wishes to espouse to its people and the millions on-line. Aruba Truth is made up of The Strategic Communications Task Force.
Members of the Strategic Communications Task Force
Mr. Olindo Koolman (Senior Advisor)
Mr. Jaap Beaujon (Advisor)
Mr. Serge Mansur (ATIA)
Mr. Greg Peterson (ATIA)
Mr. Jorge Pesquera (AHATA)
Mr. Jeff Lesker (AHATA)
Mr. Alfonso Riveroll (AHATA)
Ms. Myrna Jansen (ATA)
Mr. Rob Smith (Aruba Hospitality & Security Foundation)
Mr. Bill Carson (Banking Sector/AHATA)
Mr. Edwin Roos (Chamber of Commerce)
Mr. Ruben Trappenberg (Aruba Government)
Mr. Eric Brete (Aruba Government)
On their own site they reference the following in a Questions & Answers post:
Question: How has the task force interacted with the Aruban Government?
Answer: The task force has been in contact with the Aruban Government on a daily basis.
The task force has several members appointed by the Prime Minister and have been active in requesting more resources. The task force urged the inclusion of the Dutch Marines in the search and supported the Prime Minister in his decision to give the FBI a larger role in the investigation
I am sorry, but I question and so should everyone any organization that’s sole purpose is to give the party line, was formulated by a government, has hand selected government appointees and reports daily to the government. The chief spokesperson for the Aruban government, Mr. Ruben Trappenberg, is a part of this entity. I think a blind person can see what the purpose and agenda of this information dissemination is.
The post, DR PHIL GETS IT WRONG ON ARUBA, states this rather interesting and amazing fact when one considers that the government is behind this web site:
It was an example of how a well regarded talk show host can use his power to play at being a journalist and distort a country’s efforts to solve the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.
Power? What is more powerful than that of governmental power? Maybe only Judicial power. These statements are almost comical coming from a closed informational society with a legal system that is all but hidden. I do not need to remind Aruba that for some reason the only 24-7 news outlet they get in still CNN. This has existed for some 15 years. I could have understood this when CNN was the only game in town, but how does an island nation with 70% American tourists only have satellite access to one media outlet? Whats happened to Fox News, MSNBC and CNBC? Does one really wish to get into the debate of power and controlling the media? For all of the media outlets that came to Aruba, how many Aruban’s actually had access to them? Other than the Internet how was anyone going to be able to access any of the stories, discussions and opinions put forth?
They talk of “What Went Wrong” and that there is no evidence of any cover-up.
Beth believes that from the moment she arrived on the island that a cover-up was underway. However, there is no evidence from her or anyone else that there was an effort to hide evidence, or collude between the Van der Sloot’s and top cop, Van der Stratten.
To date, no physical evidence, no body, no DNA has emerged. Dr. Phil and Beth would have you believe that it does exist and has been suppressed.
What they are getting wrong is the notion of PERCEPTION. With the lack of any investigation, evidence and three suspects walking the street one wonders what Aruban authorities would expect? The fact that Paul Van der Sloot was a judge in training or as one might refer to in the US as a clerk is a major perception issue. The fact that Paul Van der Sloot coached the three suspects is also another major issue. The fact that the suspects stories have changed over and over is yet another. One would have to argue over the DNA evidence seeing that one judge allowed the DNA of suspects to be taken then another throws out the DNA and never allows the DNA to be taken again from the suspects.
More importantly from a perspective point of view and what went wrong for many Americans and people around the world for that matter is the fact that the three people last seen with Natalee Holloway were never initially considered SUSPECTS, as ABC news reported.
Police questioned and released three Aruban men who said they dropped Holloway off early Monday at the Holiday Inn, where she had been staying about 3 miles from the capital of Oranjestad, said police assistant inspector Jules Sambo. The three were not suspects, he said.
This in itself is the single biggest screw up and the reason why “what went wrong.” This is the reason why the family and many question the investigation and Van der Stratten and any ties that Paul Van der Sloot may have had with authorities. Whether or not there were valid reason to suspect the security guards is one thing and will come out in the future; however, not to suspect the last three individuals ever seen with Natalee Holloway from day one is criminal. Instead the three persons of interest then witnesses were finally arrested some ten days after the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.
