Stuff Dutch People Like: Phone Taps

Well, this is surprising. The Dutch government has authorized more phone taps than the US government! Of all the countries in the world, I would not have expected that from the Netherlands. They’re very opposed to the concept and practice of entrapment, but this smacks of it. They might still have the jitters from the van Gogh and Fortuyn killings, but I doubt this will help stop another murder.

I wish I had more than the Dutch News feed; I’m curious about why they’re so worried. Can we get Ian Baruma back on the case?
