Now, it was obvious that while Dutroux was in prison, someone (most likely his wife) was "tending" to these girls, giving water etc as they lived for quite some time even though the had no food. The interviewer was pressing the matter with the woman, saying that things didn't add up. She was having none of it, and I thought that if it were me, and I were forced to be the spokeswoman on tv, I would have answered "yes, you are right, the truth is not coming out here".

Brilliant, brilliant thread.
