Really?.... you never say their claims that Natalee was in supposedly in crack houses, writing letters due to being pregnant, that they eventually stopped briefing Beth t all- that they claimed the investigation was at a critical phase or would be solved in 2 days or 2 weeks - and then the ex-lead investigator doing an interview about the case with his" the FBI told me to do my own dirty work" claims. Yeah - vindictive.
To me, an Aruban authority is someone in government or law enforcement that was involved in the investigation. You have not cited anything that came from someone that I would consider to be an Aruban authority but maybe your definition is broader than mine.
You also have not cited anything that I would consider to be vindictive. But, then, I say to-MAY-to and I suppose you say to-MAH-to.
(Okay, I'll give you Dompig - he is/was an Aruban authority. But there was nothing vindictive about his complaining about the lack of coorperation that ALE received from the FBI.)
