“Terror suspects ‘normal neighbors’, residents say”
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Jakarta | Sat, October 27 2012, 11:29 PM
SNIPPET: The police arrested Davit Ashary, 19; Herman Styono, 22; and Yanto,whose age was not immediately available, on Jl. Palmerah Barat II at around 11 a.m. on Saturday, drawing the attention of local residents, among them Udiyanto, the neighborhood chief.”
SNIPPET: “According to Udiyanto, the suspects lived with their mother, a factory worker.
They have been living in the neighborhood for a very long time, while [Yanto] is a newcomer, he said.”
SNIPPET: “A Densus 88 unit also arrested on Saturday a fourth man, identified as Sunarto Sofyan, 39, in Tanah Abang, West Jakarta.”
SNIPPET: “Arif said that his uncle worked at a cargo company in Tanah Abang and lived with his parents.”
SNIPPET: “The police said that the suspected terrorists were members of a new group, Harakah Sunniyyah untuk Masyarakat Islami (HASMI). (swd)”
They’re emboldened, because they know “the once” is a weak pussy! And that we won’t respond.
I don’t suppose we could trade one Indonesian for another? Or perhaps we could just automatically forward that 3 a.m. phone call to Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. If we had President Yudhoyono or almost anyone with guts in the White House (or outsourcing Obama’s off duty phone services) on the most recent 9/11, our men would not have been murdered.
Well, now they know that the first gay president will just go to Vegas if they kill any US Diplomats, I’ll bet we’ll be seeing more stories like this..
“Densus 88 arrests 11 terrorists in four provinces”

“... arrested suspects Emir and Zainudin, in Leuwiliang in Bogor, at around 11 a.m. on Saturday. We managed to arrest another one, identified as Usman, in Cikere after the Leuwiliang arrests, Suhardi said.
Finally, the officers from the counterterrorism unit raided houses on Jl. Palmerah Barat II in West Jakarta and in Kebon Kacang, Central Jakarta, arresting suspects identified as Azhar, Herman and Narto.”
Obama pretty much declared open season on our personnel and consulates in muslims counties.... By his complete lack of action and response....in Libya
All the kidnap plans keep going wrong/thank God.

Embassy Jakarta and Consulate General Surabaya Streamline Visa Renewals
October 19, 2012
Jakarta The U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce that a new interview waiver program will expedite visa re-issuance without a personal interview for qualified applicants. This program allows many Indonesians who have a previously issued U.S. visa to save both the time and expense of appearing in person for a visa interview. This initiative is part of President Obamas January 19, 2012 announcement of U.S. government efforts to facilitate legitimate travel without compromising border security. Under the U.S.-Indonesia Comprehensive Partnership inaugurated by Presidents Obama and Yudhoyono in November 2010 our governments made increasing travel through student exchanges as well as people-to-people and business-to-business contacts a key priority.
U.S. Ambassador Scot Marciel said, We are continuing to dramatically streamline our visa process to make it as efficient as possible for Indonesians to travel to the United States, whether for tourism, business or study. This program is one more example of our efforts to speed up the visa process and facilitate legitimate travel so that Indonesians and Americans can continue to build stronger ties.
The interview waiver program permits most Indonesians who are renewing a full-validity U.S. visa in certain categories Business/Tourism (B1 and/or B2), Students (F), Exchange Visitors (J), and Vocational Students (M) to apply for a new visa without an in-person interview at the U.S, Embassy in Jakarta or U.S. Consulate General in Surabaya. In order to participate in this program applicants must have a visa which is still valid or has expired within the past 12 months and must have been at least 18 years old at the time their most recent visa was issued. The interview waiver program is only available to persons applying for a new visa of the same visa classification. More information on the visa application process is available at our website at jakarta.usembassy.gov/visas.html and information about the interview waiver program is available at
“Indonesia to observe bloody Bali bombing anniversary amid potential threats”
Xinhua | 2012-10-11 14:09:41
SNIPPET: “Security threats overshadowed commemoration ceremony of the 10th anniversary of Bali bombings slated on Friday following the police’s finding of possible terror attack scheme framed by Muslim extremists in the country’s most popular tourist destination island during the event.
In March this year, Indonesian police’s anti-terror squad of Special Detachment 88 (Densus 88) identified a clue that a terrorist group planning suicide mission had arrived in Bali.
The clue came up after members of Densus 88 killed five operatives of Indonesian Muslim radical organization of Jamaah Ansharut Tauhid (JAT) believed of planning bomb attacks in Bali and other areas in the country. One person assigned to carry out the suicide bombing still on the loose as he escaped from the squad’s raid at that time.
The JAT organization is led by the now-jailed Muslim defiant cleric Abu Bakar Bashir who was sentenced to nine years in prison since 2011 after being proved of funding terrorist training camp in Aceh.
Bashir and his militant organization intend to set up an Islamic state in Indonesia, the largest Muslim community as they represent 80 percent of 240 million population in the nation.
Marking a decade of the deadly Bali bombing this year, Indonesia planned to stage a big ceremony to be attended by Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard.”
Thank you, Detachment88/Denus88 for taking up where our president failed! We truly thank you,
