I just read this story about a plane carrying Australian diplomats and media personnel that crashed in Indonesia today. One of the paragraphs caught my attention:

He (John Howard) denied receiving advice that the plane had been sabotaged.

Could this be a possible Jemaah Islamiyah terrorist attack to coincide with the arrival of Alexander Downer in Indonesia? Or perhaps the work of a disgruntled Indonesian government.

I think that it could be a remote chance that something may have happened as witnesses report a flash at the front of the plane before it crashed and caught fire.

In any case, even if it wasnt it'd be a good opportunity for the Australian Government to "fabricate" some evidence in the good 'ol American tradition and put the blame on someone.... maybe Indonesia itself?

who knows, we just gotta wait and see.

News Source

Australian officials said the flight was carrying a large group of Australian diplomats, government officials and journalists who had been accompanying Foreign Minister Alexander Downer, who was not aboard, on an official visit to Indonesia.

Australia's Prime Minister John Howard said at least 10 citizens were on board and some remained unaccounted for, including one defense force liaison staffer and an Australian Federal Police officer.

From PM Howard; ten Australian were on board. (Some remained unaccounted for)

Also missing was an embassy staffer traveling from Jakarta for Downer's visit.

However, Garuda's media office said the plane carried just eight Australians, as well as two Japanese, two Brunei nationals and seven other foreigners.

From Garuda, they only confirmed eight Australians.
