Coming Soon to Indonesia: Spy Schools

Indonesia is soon to open two schools where students will learn how to break into buildings, hack into computers, and bug phones, among other unusual skills. President Megawati Sukarnoputri broke ground yesterday for what might be called the world’s first Spy Us. One is being built in Batam Island and the other in Sentul, West Java, not far from the nation’s capital. When they open in about 10 months, they will award formal bachelor’s and master’s degrees in what is being described as ‘intelligence science’. The country’s State Intelligence Agency head, Mr Hendropriyono, said in Batam on Tuesday: ‘Indonesia will be the first country to open institutions offering such degrees. ‘Realising the increasing security threats around the world, we have to respond to the problems by formulating the art of intelligence as a science.’ Students are expected to come from the military and government, as well as other fields. Subjects will include information technology as well as espionage activities, and will be taught primarily in English. Full Story
