1965 Indonesian massacre and the CIA

Recommended Posts

It is estimated that 1,250,000 died in the 1965 coup d'etat arranged by the CIA. Yet so little has been written about it that The Council on Foreign Relations Newsweek hack writer has whittled it down to 300,000.

Why do we hear so little about this blood letting.

Here in the U.S. it is often passed off as an example of ethnic hostilities vs. the ethnic-chinese. But this was

stirred up by the CIA in an effort to get rid of Sukarno.

L. Fletcher Prouty has an interesting article on the the 1958 phase of the CIA's war against Sukarno.

Lisa Pease has a very good two part article on Freeport Sulphur/Freeport McMoRan and its involvement with Clay Shaw, the CIA, Cuba, and the CIA's Sukarno coup. The links are here and here. The second one focuses primarily on Indonesia.

We can add to the list of killed the hundreds of thousands killed by Suharto in his genocidal campaign against East Timor. Suharto's rise to power was a direct result of the 1965 Coup.
