An interesting article in (bad) English translation. Perhaps over detailed,
and it reflects the Indonesian love of conspiracy theories. Still, it seems
reasonably clear that the Suharto regime had a hand in creating the group
now blamed for the Bali bombings and supposedly linked to Al Qaeda: JI. The
letters are supposed to stand for Jemaah Islamiya (Arabic for Islamic
Community) but in a typically Indonesian twist, it is also said to stand
for Jaringan Istana -- the Network of the (Presidential) Palace. "Readers
can predict by themselves who is behind the Bali blast," the article

Worth a look. BTW when they say "inteligent(s)" they mean intelligence
agents, spies.
