The ties that bind

Dateline is Australian television’s finest current affairs show. It’s curious, investigative, questioning and challenging. Last night, reporter David O’Shea uncovered the murky world of Indonesian politics, where the military and police are disturbingly connected to Islamic militants. The West – including Australia and America – continue to provide untold millions to the Indonesians in its “war on terror.”

But what if that money is being used to fund terrorist attacks against Indonesians and Westerners?

As ever, friends and enemies are not what they seem.
