(Newser) – Leave it to the Dutch. Two men stormed into a police office in the Dutch city of Tiburg this week to report Barack Obama for Osama bin Laden's "murder." There "is a murderer who has admitted the deed on television and who dumped the evidence at sea. And the whole world is celebrating," announced Ruud Snoeren, a lawyer. "We are very angry." Dutch cops recorded the complaint, but told the men to take their beef to the World Court in The Hague, reports the Telegraph. "It is not that we do not take the case seriously, but this is not something for Tilburg police," said a spokesman. "We are not going to commit police resources to this."

I wonder if Ruud Snoeren would have defended Osama for mass murder had he ever gone to trial...

It's called perspective....I'm certain there are a lot of Arabs that feel the same way.

This could have been two idiots anywhere. It just happened to be in the Netherlands.
