Read the last paragraph. Wow, that'll be an effective ambush seeing as how the jackass ANNOUNCED IT TO THE WHOLE FREAKING WORLD! Looks like the U.S. have to take care of this ourselves too... http://www.msnbc.com/news/671564.asp Al-Qaida links cited in Indonesia For first time, official links bin Laden’s group to local unrest MSNBC NEWS SERVICES JAKARTA, Indonesia, Dec. 12 — Indonesia’s intelligence chief said Wednesday that Osama bin Laden’s terror network has training camps on Sulawesi island. It was the first time Indonesia has linked the group to sectarian violence in the world’s most populous Muslim nation. Bin Laden’s al-Qaida and other foreign terrorists worked with local Islamic militants fighting Christians on the island, Lt. Gen. Abdullah Hendropriyono said after meeting with President Megawati Sukarnoputri. IN THE PAST, Indonesian government and military officials have denied speculation that al-Qaida had links in Indonesia. A U.S. State Department document released this week by the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta listed 45 countries where al-Qaida and affiliated groups have cells. The list included nearby nations such as Malaysia and the Philippines, but not Indonesia. Al-Qaida set up training camps on Sulawesi two years ago but activity has quieted recently, Hendropriyono said. He said Indonesia did not need U.S. assistance to eradicate the Sulawesi camps and that he believed they had not been used by terrorists involved in the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States. “We are monitoring al-Qaida. When they come again for training we will ambush them,” he told Jakarta’s El-Shinta radio station.

Sounds like political mambo jambo for "Please don't blow the hell out of our tiny little country, we're taking care of the bad guys ourselves". They'll get their turn. I'd trust Indonesia's Intelligence Chief almost as much as I trust the Northern Alliance.
