CHARACTERS Ò A Not-So-Distant Horror: Mass Violence In East Timor On August 30 1999 in a United Nations sponsored ballot East Timor voted for independence from Indonesia and for an end to a brutal military occupation Upon the announcement of the result Indonesian troops and their paramilitary proxies launched a wave of terror that over three weeks resulted in the murder of than 1000 people the rape of untold numbers of women and girls the razing of 70 percent of the country's buildings and infrastructure and the forcible deportation of 250000 people In recounting these horrible acts and the preceding events. the US empire continues its so called war on terror via blank checks for the military industrial complex the Bush Administration recently overrode a congressional ban on military aid to Indonesia and restored all such assistance by exploiting a national security waiverUnder intense USgrassroots pressure the Clinton administration suspended all assistance after the September 1999 Indonesian military destruction of East Timor and Congress subseuently legislated continuing limits on aid On November 22 of this year the State Department announced it is in the national security interests of the United States to waive conditionality pertaining to Foreign Military Financing FMF and defense exports to Indonesia Senator Patrick Leahy author of the Congressional restrictions this maneuver overrode called the move an abuse of discretion and an affront to the CongressTo waive on national security grounds a law that seeks justice for crimes against humanity without even obtaining the Indonesian government s assurance that it will address these concerns makes a mockery of the process and sends a terrible messageJoseph Nevins s A Not So Distant Horror Mass Violence in East Timor Cornell 2005 is essential for understanding the broader context of Washington s latest support for Jakarta s military The book provides a thorough overview of international community backing for the 24 year Indonesian military occupation of East Timor and shows the blatant power calculations that went into the sell out of the East Tise As Nevins uotes then US Ambassador to Indonesia Stapleton Roy saying in 1999 Indonesia matters and East Timor doesn tNevins methodically shows the double standards implicit in the relative importance accorded ground zero in the US New York City on 9112001 and the scorched earth ground zero the Indonesian military left in its wake when departing East Timor in September 1999 Though we see or hear admonitions to never forget September 11 virtually on a daily basis few in the US are aware that a military armed and trained by our government destroyed 80% of East Timor s infrastructure only two years earlier In the midst of that destruction the military and its militia proxies killed some 1500 civiliansEven that abhorrent body count is dwarfed by the many tens of thousands killed often with US supplied weapons in the previous two decades of Indonesian military terror largely ignored by mainstream coverage of the 1999 carnage Nevins writes of the corporate media s disinterest in East Timor This silence or forgetting is a crime of omission of sorts as it facilitates impunity It also helps to perpetuate myths about the supposed dedication to human rights and principles of international law among the powerfulNevins a Vassar College professor who spent many months in occupied East Timor throughout the 1990s shows how both powerful Democrats and Republicans share responsibility for keeping the occupation s ugly history out of the public eye Nevins cites one especially galling example of this bipartisan collusion a 2000 speech in which Richard Holbrooke former Clinton Administration ambassador to the UN and Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs under Jimmy Carter heaped fulsome praise on Ira invasion cheerleader Paul Wolfowitz calling the Reagan era ambassador to Indonesia a continuing participant in the effort to find the right policy for one of the most important countries in the world Indonesia Holbrooke went on to explain that Wolfowitz s activities illustrate something that s very important about American foreign policy in an election year and that is the degree to which there are still common themes between the parties East Timor is a good example Paul and I have been in freuent touch to make sure that we keep it out of the presidential campaign where it would do no good to American or Indonesian interestsWashington and other governments have consistently blocked efforts by activists in East Timor Indonesia and the US to achieve justice with real reckoning for the crimes of 1974 1999Sadly opposition to those efforts has also come from East Timor s president the former guerrilla leader Xanana Gusmao Gusmao recently downplayed the findings of his country s truth commission the Commission for Reception Truth and Reconciliation in East Timor known by its Portuguese initials CAVR and its recommendations for justice and reconciliation These include reparations to victims from countries including the US which backed the occupation and from corporations which sold weapons to Indonesia during that periodJohn M Miller the National Coordinator of the East Timor and Indonesia Action Network ETAN described the CAVR report as the product of three years of extensive research by dozens of East Tise and international experts Miller added Its completion is especially timely given the Bush administration s recent decision to ignore the criminal record of many high ranking Indonesian military officersMiller further noted Since Timor s independence referendum in September 1999 Washington has provided monetary and other assistance to East Timor s reconstruction and development but such aid does not even begin to compensate the East Tise people for the suffering caused by 24 years of US support for Indonesian military occupation Along with the CAVR we agree that the US owes East Timor reparationsDespite East Tise and Indonesian calls to publicly release the CAVR report Gusmao has thus far failed to do soEast Tise parliamentarian Leandro Isaacs who has campaigned for an international tribunal on Indonesian military crimes committed in East Timor told Australian journalist John Martinkus It s not just people from Kosovo I m sorry to say it who have a right to justice because they are white It s not just Yugoslavs who have rights We here also have the same level of humanity as the rest of the world The truth commission s findings follow a May 2005 UN Commission of Experts report on human rights violations in East Timor in 1999 That report concluded The Commission wishes to emphasize the extreme cruelty with which these acts were committed and that the aftermath of these events still burdens the Tise society The situation calls not only for sympathy and reparations but also for justiceWhile recognizing the virtue of forgiveness and that it may be justified in individual cases forgiveness without justice for the untold privation and suffering inflicted would be an act of weakness rather than of strength The UN Security Council is awaiting the Secretary General s recommendations in response to that reportThe Washington based National Security Archive s Indonesia and East Timor Documentation Project assisted the CAVR in obtaining US documents via Freedom of Information Act reuests According to the Documentation Project s director Brad Simpson these documents showed that Indonesia s invasion and occupation of East Timor and the resulting crimes against humanity occurred in an international context in which the support of powerful nations especially the United States was indispensableThey also provide further backing for Nevins s argument about the bipartisan nature of US support for the Indonesian military occupation of East Timor The documents show that in 1977 Zbigniew Brzezinski and other Carter Administration officials blocked declassification of the explosive cable transcribing President Ford s and Secretary of State Kissinger s December 6 1975 meeting with Indonesian dictator Suharto In that exchange Ford and Kissinger explicitly approved the invasion of East Timor Also newly released was a 1978 message Vice President Walter Mondale wrote President Carter to reuest accelerated approval for the sale of sixteen A 4 fighter jets to Jakarta On May 9 as Mondale arrived in Indonesia Carter approved the sale but sought clarification on the circumstances in which they envision the planes will be used in particular in East Timor The extent of the Carter Administration s concern for the East Tise can be gauged by a telegram in which Mondale reassures Suharto of their two nations mutual concerns regarding East Timor in particular how to handle public relations aspects of the problemAs Dan Lev Indonesia specialist at the University of Washington said in a recent interview with Indonesia Alert wwwindonesiaalertorg people in the Department of Defense in the United States are constantly arguing that the thousands of Indonesian officers who they train are advantaged by that training But there s no evidence of that And the places where they have trained don t have to do with human rights They have to do with crushing people actually And they have to do with intelligence services and the likeLev added The United States the major country in the world sees the Indonesian army as an ally and very useful to America And that s what helped the army become engaged in the first place in 1957 1958 when the United States spotted the army as the principal means for getting rid of the communist party at that point the third largest communist party in the world in 1965 it s true that the American government of the time was deeply grateful to the Indonesian army for carrying out and implementing in a sense one of the worst massacres of the last century Then the issue was communism now the issue is terrorismBut as Karen Orenstein ETAN s National Coordinator told me Given the lack of oversight or serious reform the armed forces of the archipelago remain by far the most
