Stanley Weiss is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Weiss is backing General Prabowo Subianto.
On 18 September 2013, Weiss writes: Prabowo could be Indonesia's Lee Kuan Yew.
Prabowo, a former Suharto general, is reported to be a war criminal and an asset of the CIA.

Weiss knows that Indonesia has been dealing with its problems of corruption, just like Tunisia, under Ben Ali, was dealing with its problems of corruption.
Weiss emphasises the corruption in Indonesia.
"Djoko Susilo ... On a salary of US$1,000 a month, the former head of Indonesia's police academy managed to amass a fortune of $18 million."
Djoko is now in prison.
"A former Health Ministry official was sentenced to five years in prison for embezzling $1 million."
Since 2002, more than 360 Indonesian officials have been jailed for corruption, including cabinet officers, governors, members of parliament and judges.
So, Indonesia is doing better than the USA!
In Indonesia, the bad guys are being jailed, unlike in certain other countries.
Indonesia is the biggest Moslem country in the world, and traditionally it is very moderate and liberal.
Indonesia will soon be one of the world's 10 largest economies.
Indonesia is becoming rather successful.
Well, we can' have that, can we!
The planners in Washington, Tel Aviv and London are presumably planning to do to Indonesia what they have done to Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt and Syria.
Saudi Arabia, a puppet state of the USA and Israel, has been pouring money into Indonesia to make it more Islamist.
There has been an increase in so-called religious violence.
Prabowo was once the general in charge of the Indonesian special forces regiment called Kopassus.
Kopassus has worked closely with Mossad.
Kopassus has been involved in organising incidents of religious violence, according to reports.

Here's an example:
"The most vicious combined operation of Coker (Christian gangsters) and Kopassus (special forces) was the attack on the village of Soya...
"22 houses were destroyed by fire, as well as the historic church of Soya built during Portuguese times and 12 people were killed.
"The Soya bloodbath created new tensions between Muslim and Christian communities.
"It is now clear that the attack was not the work of Muslim warriors as was thought at the time but an attack by a Christian militia gang together with Kopassus units."
According to Weiss:
Prabowo is "the person that many observers believe represents the country's best hope for curbing corruption and Islamic extremism before it leads to violence."
Laugh out loud!
Weiss, speaking presumably on behalf of Israel and the Pentagon, states:
"In a nation where millions yearn for a greater measure of the strength and order that defined the Soeharto years, time has brought to the fore the qualities for which Prabowo is best known ...'fierce loyalty to Indonesia, leadership, decisiveness - and toughness'."
May 1998 riots in Jakarta. Allegedly, Prabowo brought huge numbers of gangsters into Jakarta in May 1998 to help the CIA topple President Suharto.
Prabowo was married into the Suharto family.
Reportedly, Prabowo worked with the CIA to topple Suharto.
In a presidential election it is estimated that Prabowo would win about 16% of the vote.
His current rivals would each get less than 16% of the vote.
Prabowo needs a running mate who is popular with the public.
According to Weiss: "There is a potential running mate ... Ibu Risma, mayor of Surabaya, Indonesia's second-largest city.
And then there is Jokowi: Man of the people amid political disenchantment
IF Prabowo becomes president of Indonesia, will he be like Slobodan Milošević?
Milosevic was president of Yugoslavia when it fell apart.
Or, will Prabowo be like Saddam Hussein?
Saddam proved useful to the USA when he fought against Iran.
Prabowo might ally with the USA against Iran, China, Russia...
Of course, Saddam was eventually toppled.
