On Saturday a huge car bomb ripped through two bars packed with foreign tourists on the Indonesian resort island of Bali. At least 190 people died and hundreds more were injured.

World leaders, including President George W. Bush and Britain’s Tony Blair, described the explosion as a terrorist attack and Bush has called for the battle against terrorism to be stepped up since the incident.

No one has admitted carrying out the attack. One suspected group is Indonesia’s Jemaah Islamiyah group, which may have ties to Osama Bin Laden’s al-Qaeda network. A leader of Jemaah Islamiyah denied any involvement and said he believed the bombing was engineered by the United States.

Guest:

  • Prof. Jeff Winters, professor of Political Economy at Northwestern University and author of "Power in Motion: Capital Mobility and the Indonesian State."
