Obama to Return to Indonesia

Baghdad Bob Gibbs has announced that President Obama will travel to Indonesia in 2010. The trip will "showcase the importance of growing US-Indonesia bilateral relations", the US embassy said Wednesday.

Indonesia is the largest Muslim nation in the world and Obama lived there as a child.

The country is a hotbed of terrorist activity, perhaps the most memorable incident being the Bali nightclub bombing several years ago. It is home to Jemaah Islamiyah, a group that seeks an Islamist state incorporating Indonesia, Malaysia, and the southern Philippines.

It would be nice to have those bilateral relations explained in detail.
