Across the nation there was a carnival atmosphere with large crowds gathered for festivities. Not least in Apeldoorn, a decaying post-industrial city some fifty miles east of Amsterdam.
Koninginnedag 2009 was especially important to Apeldoorn. That year, the city had been granted the honour of hosting the royal parade, a parade that would include Queen Beatrix herself.
The royal family was choreographed to pass through the city centre in an open top bus to the cheers of adulating subjects.
On the day, the royal parade was running like clockwork. The crowds cheered, the royals waved, and the bus rolled serenely along the plaza.
But then, all of a sudden, a heavily battered Suzuki Swift car appeared from nowhere.
According to media accounts, the black Suzuki ploughed at high speed into the crowds, before crashing finally into The Needle, a 50 feet high obelisk.
A total of seven innocent bystanders reportedly lost their lives in the terrible attack.
NOT CREDIBLE: Koninginnedag "Massacre"
Footage appears to show the royal family looking on in horror from their open top bus as the event unfolds.
We are told that the car was driven by 38 year old Dutchman Karst Roeland Tates. Described as a loafer, Tates apparently died in hospital without regaining consciousness.
The footage and photos of the careering Suzuki are distinctly odd. There is an overbearing stench of Psy-Op to the whole incident.
- Before the Suzuki strikes the obelisk it already has major damage, damage which is not consistent with the obstacles it purportedly hit.
- Never once can we identify the driver behind the wheel of the car.
- The cameraman is fortuitously placed to capture the final moments of "the tragedy", indicating preparedness
- The Queensday 2009 Attack was a staged, fake terror incident.
There was no killer driver. There were no dead victims. There were only vicsims.
The fake "massacre" was pitched as an attack on the ruling family, to garner popular support for them.
