THE United States is to resume ties with Indonesian special forces after a 12-year moratorium imposed because of concerns over human rights abuses.
The announcement, made during a visit by US Defence Secretary Robert Gates to Indonesia, comes as Washington seeks to resume training for the Kopassus unit as part of growing anti-insurgency and intelligence cooperation.
“We will begin a gradual, measured process of working with Kopassus,” a senior US defence official said, referring to the elite Indonesian military unit with which Washington suspended ties in 1998.
This would have been news if Bush was still POTUS.
Interesting – I went through Ranger school with an Indonesian Special Forces officer.
