THE ENFORCER

Bambang Yudhoyono, Indonesia's ex-deputy Army chief, has vowed to examine evidence that Indonesian groups are tied to al Qaeda. He has led the search of an abandoned training camp but says there is no evidence that it was used by bin Laden's people.

THE MILITANT

Abu Bakar Ba'asyir is the head of Jemaah Islamiah, a militant group based in Java that wants to create an Islamic state in Southeast Asia. Ba'asyir says Jemaah Islamiah has no ties to al Qaeda, but the U.S. says it has videotaped evidence to the contrary. Ba'asyir also has said many times that he admires Osama bin Laden.

THE GO-BETWEEN

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad may be the ideal man to get Jakarta to crack down harder. His cops have arrested militants and ordered religious schools and a martial-arts camp closed. Mahathir has the Muslim credentials to pull it off.
