Some of the 'kidnapped' children.
Children were kidnapped by the military.
Many of the children were brainwashed.
Many of the generals involved in the kidnapping were trained at Fort Bragg and Fort Benning in the USA. (Masters of Terror)
General Zacky Anwar Makarim, who had ten East Timorese children at his house.
With the approval of President Ford and Henry Kissinger, Indonesian invaded East Timor in 1975.
Indonesia's General Zacky Anwar Makarim was in East Timor in 1999, running murderous militias.
East Timor, which has huge oil reserves off its coast, was occupied by Indonesia from 1975-1999
Between 1975 and 1999, thousands of children from East Timor were kidnapped and secretly taken to Indonesia.
Some of the East Timorese girls taken to Indonesia
General Zacky Anwar Makarim had up to 10 of these Timorese children living at his house.
They were not sent to school.
One of the children, Hercules Rozario Marcal, became a notorious gang leader in Jakarta.
Hercules, the gangster, reportedly worked closely with the Indonesian military.

One of the general's children was Alfredo Reinado, who wept as he was forcibly removed from his mother in East Timor in 1978.
He became became a military officer, working for Indonesia.
East Timor became independent after a vote in 1999, massacres by Indonesian militias, and the eventual arrival of Australian troops. Website for this image
In 2008, after East Timor became independent, Alfredo Reinado was shot dead during an attempted assassination of East Timor's President Jose Ramos-Horta.
"REBEL leader Alfredo Reinado was shot dead at least 30 minutes before East Timor's President Jose Ramos Horta was attacked outside his house."
Presumably, Alfredo Reinado had been turned into a brainwashed patsy.
Some of the kidnapped Timorese children were forced to work in slave-like conditions while others grew up with the families of soldiers.
Australian academic, Helene van Klinken, has published the first detailed account of the kidnapped children.
Her new book, Making them Indonesians, is published by Monash University Publishing.
Starving Timorese, after the Indonesian invasion of their country.
Indonesian invaded East Timor in 1975, with the support of Kissinger and Ford.
That was when the genocide began and at least one third of the population of East Timor died.
At least a third of the population of East Timor died, thanks to President Ford and Henry Kissinger.
In East Timor, Indonesia's Kopassus regiment, trained by the United States, used the tactics of the US Phoenix program in South Vietnam: systematic rapes, tortures and executions.
The US government and its allies turned a blind eye to the terror in East Timor.
The USA's Admiral Blair was a friend of the killer generals.
When journalists spoke out, they were murdered and governments remained silent.
Among the journalists who died were:
The Financial Times's Sander Thoenes,
Australia's Greg Shackleton and Tony Stewart,
Britain's Brian Peters and Malcolm Rennie,
and New Zealand's Gary Cunningham.
(journalists: Western journalists murdered by Indonesian military ...).
After the CIA toppled Indonesia's President Suharto, in 1998, a vote was arranged for East Timor.
The Indonesian military hoped to use its militias to intimidate the East Timorese into voting to stay with Indonesia.
But the Timorese, in 1999, bravely voted for independence.
Indonesian militias then began murdering the East Timorese, and the USA and Australia turned a blind eye.
American trained General Prabowo is said to be a friend of the CIA.
Domingos Guterres, from East Timor, alleges that in 1989 he was tortured for 35 days by soldiers under General Prabowo's command.
Guterres claims General Prabowo personally carried out acts of torture.
In the 1983 Kraras massacres in East Timor, about 300 people are believed to have been buried in mass graves after a series of executions that the locals say were carried out under General Prabowo. ( Torture evidence mounts against Indonesian general )
East Timor. yeowatzup
A Catholic missionary gave an eyewitness account of a massacre, carried out by the Indonesian military, in East Timor, in 1981:
"Not even pregnant women were spared: they were cut open...
"They did what they had done to small children the previous year, grabbing them by the legs, and smashing their heads against rocks...." (Two Indonesias Two Americas)
The CIA and the Pentagon have trained Indonesia's Top Brass: Lt Gen Johny Lumintang (brought to the USA for training in 1989), Lt Gen Prabowo Subianto (trained at Fort Benning), General Panjaitan, General Kiki Syahakri....
Now the really interesting bit concerning Alfredo Reinado (brainwashed patsy) and his friendship with the Australian military.
The following is a short extract from an article by 'churchofnobody'.
SBS journo John Martinkus, an old East Timor hand and johnny-on-the-spot, investigated Reinado's uprising and found that it was complete bullshit...
Reinado... lobbed up on the TV occasionally, variously being ferried about in Australian helicopters or at his home with Australian SAS soldiers as escorts.
Australians are much given to modesty and the troops were not unreasonably shy in the media spotlight.
East Timor would appear still to be a colony.
Later when busybody Portuguese peacekeepers poked their nose in and arrested Reinado, all the Australian supervised guards went walkabout.
And so did Reinado and fifty of his fellows.
All this across the road from an Australian Army base.
The devil! And then, there he was back in Australian choppers again. Sure, why not? We declare him the Scarlet Pimpernel reborn. (http://churchofnobody.blogspot.com/2008/02/no-need-to-thank-us.html)
It seems that Australia is making sure that it controls East Timor and its oil and gas.
