The following are three paragraphs from a Indo paper, which go some way to explaining the real picture -- admittedly by mistake. Punch-line in paragraph number three.


Rumors which have been circulating for a month in Jakarta about the replacement of the Chief of the National Intelligence Agency (BIN) Sjamsir Siregar seemed to gain their momentum on Tuesday when President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono summoned Siregar for undisclosed agenda.

...

Siregar was not the only ones summoned rather suddenly by the head of state on Tuesday afternoon. Aside from the, also known to pay a call on Yudhoyono were Coordinating Minister for Politics, Law and Security Affairs Widodo Adi Sutjipto, Commander of the Indonesian Armed Forces Air Marshal Djoko Suyanto, and Chief of the National Police Gen. Sutanto.
Among those who have been widely tipped to be the new head of BIN is senior career diplomat Makarim Wibisono.

....

If Wibisono—known as a fast learner but of zero intelligence background—is indeed elected the top boss of BIN, it will be the second time for a diplomat since the controversial but able Subandrio in the early 60s to head an intelligence agency in Indonesia.

there are a surprising number of indonesian state officials who have zero intelligence background. seems to be a prerequisite.

I was thinking more along the lines of plain and simple zero intelligence

Hmmm gotta wonder if Munir's ghost is at work here. Good On SBY if he actually has the balls to something positive. I think Sutanto should go too, but then who would replace him.

My post of a few weeks about replacing the entire judiciary with foreigners is now officially extended to include the entire brass of the Indonesian Police force. We WANT MICK KEELTY!

Trust me on this Ricc - you don’t.

Corruption is more rampant in Australian police forces than in Indonesia. There isn’t a single drug deal takes place that the police don’t get a “cut”. . Even the ICAC team who investigate police corruption were found to be corrupt. And the most corrupt is the Australian Federal Police.

There is a joke in Canberra (AFP home): if you want to buy drugs, ask a policeman….:(

Keelty was my joke PB. I just don't do those smiley face deals. I was going to say ex-LA Police Chief Daryl Gates, the racist corrupt nazi, who was in charge during the Rodney King debacle and O.J. trials, but I didn't think anyone 'round these parts would've known him.
