As Obama Arrives in Jakarta, Secret Docs Show
U.S.-Backed Indonesian Special Forces Unit Targets Papuan Churches, Civilians”


President Obama arrived in Indonesia today on the
second stop of a 10-day trip to Asia. It’s
Obama’s first state visit to Indonesia after
having lived there for four years as a child.
Democracy Now! speaks with Jakarta-based
investigative journalist and activist Allan
Nairn, who has just released secret documents
from Kopassus­the feared Indonesian special
forces­which has been responsible for human
rights abuses since the 1950s. Earlier this year,
the Obama administration lifted a 12-year ban on
funding the training of Kopassus. While Obama
talks about human rights, the documents indicate
that Kopassus targets churches and civilians and
includes a Kopassus enemies list topped by a
local Baptist minister in West Papua. We also
speak with John Miller, the National Coordinator
of East Timor and Indonesia Action Network.
