On December 6, 1975, then Secretary of State Kissinger and President
Gerald Ford visited Jakarta. At their meeting, Ford gave Indonesia's
dictator Suharto an explicit go ahead for the invasion of East Timor
and Indonesia invaded the next day. According to East Timor's

and Reconciliation (CAVR) up to 180,000 died as a direct result of
the illegal invasion and occupation. Declassified and leaked
documents show that Kissinger understood that Suharto was balking at
invading, concerned that the U.S. would cut off its supply of weapons
and military training.
guaranteed continuation of weapons shipments. According to
Timor-Leste's <http://etan.org/news/2006/cavr.htm>Commission for
Reception, Truth and Reconciliation as many as 180,000 people died as
