Visit Brussels, You’ll Have a Blast

If you want to take in the depths of European denial, check out this two minute video the Belgian tourist promoters put together a few months back saying, “Problem? There’s no problem here. It’s all the media’s fault. . . Don’t listen to CNN.”

You want to know how unserious Belgium is? Try this paragraph from the Wall Street Journal this morning:

The Belgian police have also been hampered by bizarre rules. According to Belgian Justice Minister Koen Geens, just two days after the Paris attacks Abdeslam was “likely in a flat in Molenbeek.” But because of the country’s penal code, which prohibits raids between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. unless a crime is in progress or in case of fire, police were ordered to wait until dawn to pursue him. By then, Abdeslam was nowhere to be seen.
