NSS Hotel demands Washington Post apology
Hotel Huis ter Duin was wrongfully named by the Washington post as the hotel where one of Obama's security personnel was found passed out in the hotel lobby, intoxicated. The hotel wants the paper to print a retraction.
The paper initially reported three security staff members, who where supposed to protect Obama, went out on town Saturday, and one of them was found passed out in a hotel lobby in a Amsterdam hotel. Later, however, the paper changed that into Huis ter Duin, where the President stayed with his delegation. The three were sent back to the U.S.A. on Sunday and are on administrative leave, pending an investigation. The American delegation consisted of 500 members, of which 250, among whom the President, stayed in Huis ter Duin. "The guests were very disciplined and very polite," said manager Stephan Stokkermans, who went on to say "there were no incidents such as described in the newspaper article."
