Babylon Observer Video Report: The DEA And The Dutch

WWW, February 2011 - According to documents recently released by Wikileaks, the American DEA is conducting what they call "controlled drugs deliveries" within the country of the Netherlands. The Americans do this without official permission, which they call "unofficial" but could better be called "illegal". The Babylon Observer watches an item from Dutch public TV and in accordance with Fair Use laws, shares his observation...

In the leaked documents, the American ambassador in the Netherlands is complaining how the Dutch Justice department does not want to go into official DEA requests to conduct these "controlled deliveries of drugs". Apparently things changed in the end of 2005, because in the first half of 2006, there were already six of such deliveries conducted on Dutch soil and with cooperation of the Dutch police.

What changed?

A political situation, perhaps... Or something more sinister...

However, the Wikileaks show that the Americans are now very pleased because they found a way to bypass the Dutch Justice department by conducting so-called "police to police information", that is: information from one police unit to another.

As a professor in criminology, very much esteemed in the Netherlands, this is either done illegally by the police who doesn't inform the justice department or it is done illegally by the Justice department itself, because no official request is done in either case.
