EASY RIDER SPEAKS OUT!



**This was given to me from "EasyRiders's" column:




Spin Cycle - Round and Round We Go


"The Prime Minister went to the public to say that the person and/or newspaper that keeps the Natalee Holloway case alive are traitors to Aruba!"



The mission was clear and the purpose succinct. Stop media access to the island. Stop it now! Dilella and Cohen began their campaign by encouraging the increase of satellite uplinks from $800.00 to $4,000.00. The next move was to encumber the movement of electronic equipment through the airport. Every item was to be weighed, examined and weighed again. Movement through Aeropuerto Internacional became so inhibited that it became pointless to try and bring camera equipment.


It was media shut-down and the island bought it lock, stock and barrel. What a horrendous mistake!


Eyewitness accounts place Robert DiLella in Aruba only days after Natalee's disappearance. He met with his primary Aruban clients, Nelson Oduber and the Aruba Hotel & Tourism Association. With his guidance, the Strategic Communications Task Force was formed. Its sole purpose was to control media coverage of the Natalee Holloway case. The spin cycle officially began!


SMDG offers two services to its clientele, political campaign management and crisis intervention. The former boasts an array of political characters from assemblymen to senators. Their strategy runs the gauntlet, but most importantly they claim specialty in political "attack" campaigns. The following is a snapshot of SMDG's client list:

DiLella along with Stephen Cohen met with AHTA and ATA and urged them to form the Strategic Communications Task Force in June of 2005. The task force included many notables in Aruba. Most were connected to tourism and politics. The membership list is telling:

The preceding list contains many of the movers and shakers of the island of Aruba. Each one of them turned a blind eye toward the crime against Natalee Holloway and focused upon preserving a false image of the island. It was a very foolish tactic, but they were led down the garden path by a couple of American clowns with academic credentials.



How important is Dilella in all of this mis-information campaign? He was so key that George (Jug) Twitty cc'd him when he sent his letter to Governor Bob Riley.

The IRS Commissioner and US Inspector General are investigating the SMDG political campaign soft money laundering between California, New Jersey, Florida and the Dutch Colony named Aruba. Bribery, ATM Kickbacks, Free Trade Zone Fraud are significant elements of a scheme of spending the US bank money to buy votes to influence the outcome of political party members via the Aruban land reconstruction scams and timeshares.
