how can the Dutch criticize President Trump when they're doing things like this?

I'm not Dutch, so it is not for me to say.

What does happen is these things are discussed ad nauseum until consensus is reached and a result that no one is pleased with.

There is that entertaining movie TrollHunter..

I looked Bodo up on a map - that is pretty far north and if you kept going north and then east/southeast, you’d wind up in Murmansk.

The Arctic region is a sensitive topic for some countries too.

Maybe he was just hiking around in Bodo or maybe he was investigating something a little further away.

Well just speculation, but it seems very 007 to me...

I think regarding someone with his skills and line of work, there is reason for concern.

And also, if he was doing something involving hacking from a Norwegian outpost, it could be that Norwegian authorities wanted to speak with him.

On the other hand, Bodo is a beautiful place, so maybe he just stayed on for a bit. Nice to just wander freely, sometimes, without "checking in" all the time and being responsible about things like work.  

This is a "salt sauna" in Bodo.  Beautiful and so remote there.

Maybe a Norwegian goddess lassoed him and brought him to her ice palace... :D

Anyway, good luck to him, whatever is going on.

Maybe some Scandinavian feminist kidnapped him because he wanted to do an STI test before, not after.

Being a close associate of Assange is probably not good for your longevity. My sole experience with Bodoe was flying in for a cross country skiing race in the late 70's, so not much first hand experience, but it is certainly surrounded by some genuine wilderness as well as an ocean with major tidal flows.

But Knut Haukelid would do it before breakfast as would the Finns in the forests

By the time the Germans had realized what had happened and soldiers started streaming up to the Vemork plant, the saboteurs were already far down the railway line on their way to Rjukan. It was very dark and the snow was deep but they all got away.

Once back on the mountain plateau, the group split up. The explosives team travelled by ski, fully armed and in uniform, over the high country and across the valleys of Eastern Norway to Sweden. The others spread out over the plateau. The Germans brought in thousands of soldiers and organized an extensive search, but were unable to find any of the saboteurs.

The successful action destroyed the facility and large quantities of heavy water.
