“Suddenly, my wife screamed,” writes Yudhoyono in the 900-page book, “Selalu Ada Pilihan” (There is Always a Choice). “There was this thick dark cloud hovering beneath the ceiling, trying to enter my bedroom. I then asked everybody to pray to seek Allah’s help. I closed the door to my room but left others wide open. The revolving clouds eventually headed out of my house.”
Yudhoyono lives in his private residence, not at the 19th-century presidential palace in Jakarta, which is considered haunted, Bayuni said. Only two presidents, Sukarno from 1945-1965 and Abdurrahman Wahid from 1999-2001, made the palace their residence.
In September 2010, Yudhoyono skipped a meeting of the U.S. and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations held on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York, partly because of “rumors of rampant witchcraft in the palace,” according to a WikiLeaks cable.
might not mean a lot to people who don't take it seriously - but to someone who does, it sounds more like a generalized statement - there might be more details there to explore, like what kind of witchcraft, who was involved, motives, etc. - if the situation is detailed enough, I assume, the details might even make a difference in the decision to go or not.
“rumors of rampant witchcraft in the palace,”

Sounds suspiciously like the nanocreatures described in Michael Crichton's Prey. Not to be dismissed, imho.
