Obama's mother, who moved to Indonesia in 1967. Ann Dunham reportedly worked for a CIA front organisation.

How does the USA topple a government?

We learn about "The CIA, and a Secret War" from L. Fletcher Prouty.

"Blood ran in the streets. Villages were wiped out and a million people massacred..."

There were two attempts by the CIA.

The first one failed and the second was 'a success'.

The first action, in 1958, "involved no less than 42,000 CIA-armed rebels supported by a fleet of bombers and vast numbers of four-engine transport aircraft as well as submarine assistance from the U.S. Navy."

The CIA's 1958 attack on Indonesia, the largest Moslem country in the world, was a total failure.

Indonesia's army stayed loyal to president Sukarno and 'the rebels' were defeated.

Indonesia's President Sukarno with Johnson, who was president at the time of the 1965 coup in Indonesia which toppled Sukarno.

The CIA got to work on the Indonesian generals, such as Suharto.

The second CIA attack on Indonesia, in 1965, was 'a success'.

It brought the CIA's General Suharto to power.

General Suharto 'proceeded to assassinate nearly one million people.'

Today, "major U.S. enterprises are plundering the raw material wealth of Indonesia - rubber, tin, and oil."

The Indonesian president who was toppled in 1965 was Sukarno.

Sukarno had wanted Indonesia to be neutral.

Suharto with Nixon

L. Fletcher Prouty.looks at the roles played by Vice President Richard Nixon and the CIA in the failed 1958 attempt to topple Sukarno.

In Washington the Indonesian military attache got to know the CIA.

The CIA's Frank Wisner arranged for the miltary attache and CIA agents to visit Indonesian 'rebels'.

The CIA got its agents within the Philippines military to lend a hand.

The CIA's Frank Wisner, aided by Richard Helms, was in command of the 1958 operation.

General Lyman Lemnitzer, in Japan, provided weapons.

Rebel Indonesians, trained and equipped in the Philippines, were returned to Sumatra, in Indonesia.

Frank Wisner had his forward headquarters in Singapore.

Keeping an eye on the situation were President Eisenhower, CIA boss Allen Dulles, and Vice President Nixon.

Nixon chaired the "clandestine affairs committee" of the National Security Council.

"In other words nothing was done in Indonesia that was not directed by Nixon."

The CIA's Allen Pope during his trial.

"While the CIA was supporting up to 100,000 rebels, the State Department professed innocence.

"The U.S. ambassador, Howard P. Jones, maintained that the United States had nothing to do with the rebellion."

US Secretary of State John Foster Dulles issued a statement saying that the United States would not provide arms to either side.

However, the USA's B-26 bombers were secretly dropping bombs.

U.S. Navy submarines were aiding the rebels.

One day, a B-26 came upon an Indonesian ship.

The B-26 was hit and it ditched near the ship.

The CIA pilot, an American named Allan Lawrence Pope, was captured.

Sukarno had his proof of U.S. involvement.

The 1958 rebellion collapsed.

Nixon sacked Frank Wisner.

Wisner had been Allen Dulles' heir apparent.

Nixon was not popular with the CIA.

It would be interesting to learn precisely which foreign companies were benefiting from the overthrow of Sukarno. And particularly those that deal in strategic, economically inelastic commodities (read: oil, gas).

I haven't pieced together details: it's not a straightforward Google, Wiki search.

At a guess, I'd say the Usual Suspects, American members of the Seven Sisters. Translation: Rockefeller interests.

But this is still just a guess.

Also interesting to look into owners/managers of media companies who produced propaganda films about the fall of Sukarno. The only one that comes to mind is The Year of Living Dangerously, which was made in 1983 while James T Aubrey Jr was president of MGM and Kirk Kerkorian was a substantial owner, having bought from the Bronfmans about a decade earlier.

I haven't traced through their business associations at the time.

Hullo Anon,

Whilst I can't point you at the precise book, John Pilger has precisely addressed that question. I recall him detailing who flew in, the hotel they met at, and the companies they represented. I'm pretty sure this carve-up took place less than a week after the fall of Sukarno.

Perhaps if you google ? I don't know about that last pair (sometimes it's worth trying unlikely words just to see if you get lucky) but try a few things and see how you go.

PS Aang, have you noticed how blogger has changed the mechanism for viewing images at full rez? Piss me off! You used to be able to click on a pic and then drag it directly to your desktop. That no longer works now and I'm reduced to doing screen-grabs. What that means is that instead of precise digital copies that can live unaltered forever we find ourselves three steps removed from an analog-like mud. Those filthy swine.

Mud, swine, ha ha ha, very good. I should be on QI.

Wait I figured it out. Control click (mac) on the image on the front page and 'save linked file as...' Clicking on the image itself is a dead end.

And in case you're curious it was the shot of Dunham and Soetoro that grabbed me. Yoroshiku.

Thanks for that Aang,

Oh, and just briefly (and it may or may not mean anything) but the largest cruise ship company in the world (more than 50% of all ships) is Carnival Plc which was founded by an original 1947 Zionist and now run by his daughter. It makes billions every year. P&O, all of the biggies, are all actually Carnival.

The second biggest (25%), Royal Caribbean (something like that) is, in spite of it's nominal owners, heavily Jewish. Does that mean anything? I don't know but it's 'quite interesting'. Sorry I've become a QI fan.

Anyway Carnival is true behemoth, absolutely huge.
