After the 'End of History'

Our third discussion on The Jakarta Method details the methodological differences between the two wings of the CIA: the measured, "conciliatory" cosmopolitanism of Howard "Smiling" Jones vs. the loose cannon interventionism of Frank Wisner ("The Wiz"). However tactically distinct in their approaches to regime change in Indonesia during the rise of Sukarno and the Communist Party of Indonesia (PKI), both proved to have similar aims, leading ultimately to the extermination of the PKI preceding the coup d'etat of General Suharto.
