Americans. Coca Cola. You like?

John Jason Wilde.

- Jake.

My friends call me Jake.

Mr Wilde. I'm Lieutenant Hashim.

Detachment 88

You have heard of us in America

We are not all terrorists.


I was there, maybe an hour

- Allahu akbar!

Wait. Begin with...

how you came to my country.

Look, I am a grad school TA

I'm on Anthology program from

Cornell University. Ivy League. In America?

here to do a pen on f***ing

Southeast Asian art history

A teaching assistant?

- Yeah.

Do you lecture to your students

with that language?

You should hear what they call me.

Lanjutkan. (Indonesian lang.)


I flew in last week and they

invited me to this party.

They said formal, I didn't realize it was

like "Hawaiian Shirt" meeting.

Batik. It's called: Batik.

All right.

- Did you speak with anyone?

I don't know anyone here.

I hit on a pretty girl, so..?

Our Princess Diana.

You were the last,

who has spoken with the Sultana of Java,

before she died.

Now, You will tell me every detail


Those are beautiful.

- Excuse me?

- The Diamonds.

Khmer Royal Treasury.

Am I right?

- You know Jewelry.

And the beauty.

- Sultana? Your speech.

A pleasure to meet you Mister..?

- Wilde.

- Call me Jake.

- Mr Jake...

So, you just hit on her?

She's the prettiest girl at the party

That's where you start.

Then you work your way down...

Our Sultana is the...

Was the most revealed woman in my country

You may go. Just fill out this witness


This "Bule" (White Person)

wanted no contact with his embassy

I know.

There's no "Bule" will do such thing.

A "Bule"

who knows about Majapahit (Java Kingdom)

But doesn't wear "Batik" at formal occasions

He's lying.

I know.

The General is waiting for you, Sir.

Yes, I know

General! Sir

English! Where have you been?

I'm sorry, sir.

But every witness must be...

My man told me that there is no link

is between this bombing and the

Malaysian fanatic Faruq Al'Assan.

Faruq is far too politically sophisticated

for this.

I need someone to string up for the media

And the absence of Faruq,

you will do.


I'll be sure to mention your thoroughness

to my superiors.

For a secure Java

A strong new governor

Mas (Respected male in Javanese or brother) Jake!

- Hey! Nita?


Notes. For your sections.

- They killed her, you know?

- What?

She has been the first female Sultan

So much for "Muslim hospitality."

I am a Christian. "Bule".

Take the cuffs off him.



- Literally means: stupid white person.

But it can be a term of

Endearment. - Yeah, right!

The bomber stood here, yes?

- Uhm..

- Think Mr. Wilde

Yeah, he stood there.

And the Sultana? She was here?

Yes. But...

- You could not see.

- Because this screen.

- Yeah.

And you. Were you here?

No. I was here.

You had a clear view of the bomber.

How did you see?

He held his hands up and shouted.

Mr Wilde,

Allah gave you two eyes and one mouth,

so that you may see twice as much as you speak.

So please, what did you see?

- I've told you.

I heard him scream, and he blew the whole...

- No!

What did you see?

His hands were empty.

Someone else detonated the bomb.

How did I miss that? - No doubt, not part of your training in Southeast Asian studies.

- Art history.

- Yes.

Whose this?

The Sultana.

This is where you found the Sultana?

In deed.

Although that her body was blown toward the explosion

One more stop.

She was the prettiest girl at the party.

Do you want to become a permanent guess here?

Perhaps, it is less painful for you to wait outside (Pak)Mr. Vizier

Did you know

it is a great sin in Islam,

to deface his own flesh?

And what does the Koran say about woman pierce her clit?

Excuse me?

She also had a nose job


This is not the Sultana.

How can you know this?

- Trust me, I know women.

Yes, you know beauty.

I met the lady.

It's time for us to leave.

Peace be with you.


And with you.


- The Police...

- Yes, yes, all right.

Here, boy. Get out! Okay.

The detective returned to the site.

The "bule".

I think he's English...


Do you know him?

He's grown out his hear.

The blue of his eyes.

- This is not a game.

Of course it is.

now, my friend.

Another enemy of Islam

into your hands

Oh look at you,

I can take your name out.

Who is the dead girl?

How do you eat that sh*t?

Ever heard of trans fats?


This is nasi goreng.

Fried rice. Good for you.

And where are we going?

- There is no "we".

Come on Hash?

We can taser them.


You are like children.

You always think you're the "Rambo".

- you know "Rambo"?

"I always thought that

the mind would be the best defense."


- What?

"I always thought that

the mind would be the best weapon."


That's why we make a good team.

You know you can trust me.

- Yes, that's why you're sitting in the back...

Hashi? Hashi?

God is great.

(Allahu Akbar)



You saved my husband's life.

That's nothing, ma'am

. I'm Jake.

Mas Hashim.

Mas Jake will come to our house for breakfast.

Thanks Ma'am, but I.. I really should be getting back.

- yes, your students will miss you.

It's the least we can do.

- She is right.

- Do you take sugar?

- No, thanks.
