Aruba Prime Minister admits mistakes in Natalee investigation

From the Associated Press...

Aruba's prime minister believes that authorities made mistakes at the start of the investigation of the Natalee Holloway case, a government spokesman said Monday.

Beth Holloway Twitty, who has often criticized authorities on the Dutch Caribbean island since her daughter disappeared on May 30, met in private with Prime Minister Nelson Oduber over the weekend.

"I think that he's in absolute agreement that the initial investigation has been so badly botched," Holloway Twitty said on NBC's "Today" show.

She said the prime minister also told her that Aruba needs to review the first stages of the investigation to find out "who let this go wrong."

Oduber told reporters over the weekend that during the meeting he assured the Alabama woman that investigators would not stop looking for answers about the fate of her 18-year-old daughter.

Pretty brave to admit mistakes, specially given the  propensity for half the world to Monday-morning-quarterback everything done in the case.

Brave to admit mistakes but what are they going to do about it. They need to charge VanDaSloot just on his arrogance alone. He knows where that poor gal is.

Have you seen this before? It's a number guessing game: http://www.amblesideprimary.com/ambleweb/mentalmaths/guessthenumber.html. I guessed 66048, and it got it right! Pretty neat.
