Although little noticed outside the Asia Pacific, the United States is measurably improving security cooperation with Indonesia. However, full normalization of the relationship is constrained by continuing U.S. congressional restrictions protesting human rights abuses committed in East Timor and elsewhere. John B. Haseman and Eduardo Lachica discuss the advances made in U.S.-Indonesian relations and ways for both countries to address mutual national security interests.
