      In the US Agency for International Development estimated thatEast Timorese had been moved into camps controlled by Indonesian armed forces. There were people herded into fields and machine-gunned.

To them, the permanent loss of the forest is unimaginable, and selling logging rights is a quick and effortless way to join the cash economy. Dunn, I Stand by Sand Creek.

      More recently, George Monbiot's Poisoned Arrows Abacus, is an account of his secret journey through Irian Jaya in latewhere he saw the effects of transmigration and military repression on the West Papuan people; he ends with a plea to the outside world to petition the UN to stop the Indonesian government's inhumane policies.

A four-year guerilla war led by nationalists against the Dutch on Java after World War II, along with successful diplomatic maneuverings abroad, helped bring about independence. However more than 20, registered Indo-European civilians were abducted and never returned. But, most probably, it was the power of Bais which relegated the establishment of the Dephan-agency to a later date.

The latest reformation, however, from BIA back again to a new-style Bais inonce again handed command over army intelligence back to the C-I-C. But when that does happen, the cases are usually deemed anomalies or excesses by out-of-control soldiers. Many know the story of the bloodbath through the movie, "The Year of Living Dangerously," and others have heard periodic accounts of the atrocities against East Timor. Ali's presence at the event — and his failure to take the FPI to task for their religious bigotry and violence — was the Indonesian equivalent of a senior U.
