Indonesia: Impact of Bali Bombing

Reporting on Bali changed the way I looked at the world. Until today, I believe Bali could have been prevented if authorities paid attention to the signs along the way. When the explosions happened a decade ago, the Indonesian police already had the names of every single one of the Bali plotters. Government denial and political gamesmanship – courting moderate Muslims by ignoring extremists – prevented action. This is part of the reason I cannot look away. I remember Bali.

Journalist Maria Ressa remembers the impact of the Bali bombing ten years ago. She described the bombing as Southeast Asia's 9/11.
