In March 2011, the Pakistan security services claimed that they had arrested Umar Patek in Abbotabad.
After the 'navy seals' incident at Abbotabad in 2011, Pakistan's government may have been keen to show that they were capable of arresting alleged terrorists.
'Patek' is now on trial in his home country of Indonesia.
In court, 'Patek' has said the Bali bomb attacks on October 12, 2002, had been a “total failure”.
“The reason was to retaliate for the killing of Muslims in Palestine but the people killed had no link to Palestine,” he said during his testimony in the Jakarta court.
“Who were the victims, they were Westerners, they weren’t Israelis. In fact many Indonesians were victims. They had no link to Palestine,” he said.
“I questioned why in Bali? Jihad should be carried out in Palestine instead. But they said they did not know how to get to Palestine,” he said. (Umar Patek Recalls Waging Jihad in ... - The Jakarta Globe)
This sounds like a speech written by Mossad and the CIA?
The real Patek knew how to get to Afghanistan, the Philippines and Pakistan, and never had any trouble with passports.
'Patek' on trial.
Patek allegedly used simple household tools including a rice ladle to assemble the Bali bombs.
The trial of 'Umar Patek', alleged Bali bomber, began on 13 February 2012.
He has been indicted for his alleged role in a series of coordinated bomb attacks on churches across Indonesia during Christmas Eve 2000, and for concealing information about a militant training camp that was uncovered in Aceh in early 2010.

The Indonesian security services have allegedly been infiltrated by Mossad and the CIA.
Patek was reportedly captured in January 2011, in Abbottabad, by the Pakistan authorities.
Abbottabad is alleged to have contained a number if CIA safe houses.
The CIA claimed that Osama bin laden lived in Abbottabad.
Patek's real name is Hisyam Bin Alizein
ISI claims credit for arrest of Bali bomb suspect
Umar Patek is a member of the "CIA-linked" militant group Jemaah Islamiyah and he is believed to have been involved in the 2002 Bali bombing.
The Pakistan inteligence service ISI claims that it was responsible for the arrest of Patek.
According to an ISI officer: "We captured him a few days ago and now ... will ensure that he is taken back to Indonesia."
When asked if it was a joint effort by several intelligence organisations that resulted in the arrest, the officer said: "No, it was entirely the efforts of the ISI."
Patek is a 35-year-old Javanese Arab.
Reportedly he was trained at CIA-Al-Qaeda camps in Afghanistan in the 1990s.
Patek was reportedly killed on 14 September 2006 in the Sulu province of the Philippines.
Bali Bomb 'mastermind' Al Faruq
In The Age, (We must not get back in bed with Kopassus - theage.com.au), Dr Damien Kingsbury wrote about Moslem militants in Indonesia and their links to the Indonesian military.
Komando Jihad, which became Jemaah Islamiah - was set up by (American trained) Indonesian generals.
Dr Kingsbury wrote: "Kopassus (Indonesian special forces) ...set up the Islamic organisation Komando Jihad ... which has since emerged as Jemaah Islamiah."
What about the 2002 Bali Bomb?
Bali bomb 'mastermind' Al Faruq - 'worked for the CIA.'
Former Indonesian State Intelligence Coordinating Board (BAKIN) chief A.C. Manulang was quoted by Tempo magazine as suggesting that Al-Faruq was a CIA-recruited agent.
Kuwaiti citizen Omar Al Faruq was arrested in Bogor on June 5, 2002 and handed over to US authorities.
Al Faruq was then able to escape from custody.
According to a news story in the Sydney Morning Herald, November 2, 2002:
"Some time around the 30 October 2002, senior officers in the Indonesian military HQ gave a piece of information to a military attache from a Western embassy in Indonesia -the source of explosive used in the October 12 bombing in Bali was the head of the counter-terrorism unit with the army's special forces."
The father-in-law of the officer concerned is Hendropriyono, Indonesia's former spy chief.
The airline manifest of Garuda airlines shows that at least two generals from Jakarta visited Bali three days before the bombings and that they returned to Jakarta one day before the Sari Club was blown up.
This was confirmed by armed forces chief General Sutarto, who claimed that General Djaja Suparman was on vacation, while General Ryamizard Riyacudu, chief of staff, was said to have gone to Bali for health reasons. (Jakarta Post)
19 people were killed and scores injured in a series of attacks on churches on Christmas Eve in 2000.
Umar Patek is accused of being involved in these church bombings.
In February 2001, the respected Indonesian newsweeklyTempo published a cover story suggesting links between the church bombings and the Indonesian military, the TNI.
The article pointed out that Edi Sugiarto, who was quickly arrested and confessed to assembling 15 of the bombs used in the town of Medan, has long run a car repair shop in the province of Aceh, where a separatist group named GAM operated.
Members of TNI and Indonesia’s special forces, Kopassus, regularly went to his shop for repairs and just to hang out.
As a result, GAM claimed he was a TNI lackey and burned down his shop and house in 1997.
Phone records also indicated that Sugiarto called Fauzi Hasbiseven times before the bombings.
Hasbi is a leader of Jemaah Islamiyah, but Tempo outed him as an Indonesian government agent.
In 2005, two years after Hasbi’s death, the Australian television program SBS Dateline provided additional evidence of Hasbi’s long-time links to the TNI.
Fasbi also called Jacob Tanwijaya, a businessman well connected with the TNI, 35 times.
That businessman in turn talked on the phone to Lt. Col. Iwan Prilianto, a Kopassus special forces intelligence officer, over 70 times. (Source: Kopassus)
In Indonesia, the special forces regiment, Kopassus, works closely with Mossad (MOSSAD IN INDONESIA) and the American military.
There is evidence linking Kopassus to attacks on Christian churches in Indonesia.
"The most vicious combined operation of Coker (Chrtistian gangsters) and Kopassus was the attack on the village of Soya...
"22 houses were destroyed by fire, as well as the historic church of Soya built during Portuguese times and 12 people were killed.
"The Soya bloodbath created new tensions between Muslim and Christian communities.
"It is now clear that the attack was not the work of Muslim warriors as was thought at the time but an attack by a Christian militia gang together with Kopassus units." (aangirfan: The 'terrorism' is often linked to Christian gangsters ...)
The CIA's Allen Pope during his trial in Jakarta, 28 December 1959.
The CIA secretly bombed Christians in Indonesia, in order to topple President Sukarno.
On 15 May 1958, a CIA plane bombed the Ambon marketplace, killing a large number of civilians on their way to church on Ascension Thursday.
Three days later, during another bombing run over Ambon, a CIA pilot, Allen Lawrence Pope, was shot down and captured. (Indonesia 1957-1958 KH)
