Jogjakarta earthquake, 'Indonesia's Gestapo', and the allegedly corrupt Red Cross.

Helping with relief efforts in Jogjakarta are Indonesia's special forces, Kopassus, 'Indonesia's American-trained Gestapo'.

Kopassus generals have strong links to the Pentagon.

According to Dr Damien Kingsbury, head of philosophical, political and international studies at Deakin University, Kopassus set up the Islamic organisation Komando Jihad.

Kingsbury has explained that:

1. Komando Jihad became Jemaah Islamiah, which has been linked to the Bali bomb.

2. Kopassus has murdered and tortured political activists, trade unionists and human rights workers.

3. It has trained, equipped and led militias in East Timor, West Papua and Aceh.

4. Kopassus members trained the notorious Laskar Jihad Islamic militia, which stepped up conflict in the Ambon region, leaving up to 10,000 dead.

5. It was Kopassus that murdered Papuan independence leader Theys Eluay in 2001, and who Indonesian police say killed three teachers (two of whom were American)

6. Kopassus still trains and organises the militias in West Timor that continue cross-border destabilisation operations into East Timor. It is because of these cross-border raids that the Australian army has extended its stay in East Timor.

Helping with the relief efforts in Jogjakarta is the Indonesian Red Cross, which is associated with a lady called Tutut, daughter of Suharto.

Tutut is allegedly corrupt. Her brother is in jail for the murder of a judge.

There have been allegations that former president Soeharto's daughter, Siti "Tutut" Hardiyanti Rukmana, received US$31 million in bribes from a British arms company to sell tanks to Indonesia a decade ago.

Tutut was appointed head of the Indonesian Red Cross.


A former head of the Indonesian Red Cross was Ibnu Sutowo.

Ibnu Sutowo paid over US$1 million for his daughter's wedding in 1973. He has gold-plated fittings on his Rolls-Royce.


Sutowo headed Indonesia's oil company, Pertamina. Sutowo's 'mismanagement' left the company US$15 billion in debt.

Sutowo was allowed to quietly retire from Pertamina and he became head of the Red Cross in Indonesia. A member of the Sutowo family, Adiguna Sutowo, was recently arrested for the murder of a waiter in the Jakarta Hilton, which is owned by the Sutowo family.

Red Cross hospitals in Indonesia are some times run by former members of the corrupt military.

It is not unknown to find that Red Cross hospitals in Indonesia are less than clean and less than well equipped.

Reportedly, it is not unknown to find in Red Cross hospitals in Indonesia that children die because they are not getting any medicines.

The Indonesian military was put into power, and is kept in power, by the USA.

Indonesia's President Yudhoyono is a former Suharto general and has always been a friend of the Pentagon. He was involved in the conflict in East Timor.
