2002 saw the perpetrators of 9-11 still working to concoct a plausible official narrative, and to tidy up as many of the loose ends as possible. Katherine Smith, for example, one of many 9/11 Premature deaths; she was firebombed in her car the day before she was due to testify in court. Commercially-controlled media continued to hype the "war on terror", replaying a selected subset of the events of the previous year (omitting some of the more inconvenient ones such as the spontaneous collapse of World Trade Center 7 and the Amerithrax case).

On 12 October 2002, two bombs were detonated in a tourist area in Bali, Indonesia. 202 people were killed, mostly tourists from Australia or Europe. The Australian Government promptly introduced laws that required all ISPs in Australia to collect and monitor the data passing through their servers. Meanwhile, in the Telecommunications Interception Legislation Amendment Bill of 2002 it granted its agencies powers to intercept and read email, SMS and voice-mail messages without a warrant.

In 2005, the former President of Indonesia, Abdurrahman Wahid stated that "The orders to do this or that came from within our armed forces not from the fundamentalist people", i.e. that he believed the bombing was a false flag attack. Asked who he thought planted the second bomb, he replied "Maybe the police... or the armed forces."[1]
