I’m not sure if Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has touched down in India yet, but she’s released a statementcondemning last night’s bombing of an Indonesian business forum in Jakarta:
The attacks reflect the viciousness of violent extremists, and remind us that the threat of terrorism remains very real. We have no higher priority than confronting this threat along with other countries that share our commitment to a more peaceful and prosperous future.
Our sympathies go out to the victims of these tragic attacks, their families, and the people and government of Indonesia. We condemn these senseless acts of violence and stand ready to provide assistance if the Indonesian government requests us to do so. The State Department is working to help American citizens injured in the blasts.
Update: Here’s a hugely insightful poston the bombings and al-Qaeda’s broader failures from Steve Coll.
The Counterterrorism Blog’s Patrick Conboy addsthat one of the scenes of the bombing was a hotel that the Indonesian terrorist group Jemaa Islamiyah hit in 2003.
