A car bomb killed at least 13 people and wounded 149 Tuesday afternoon in Jakarta, Indonesia. Radical Islamic group such as Jemaah Islamiyah are under suspicion, although no organization has claimed credit for the bombing, which took place at a Marriott hotel. The attack comes less than a year after two bombings in nearby Bali and just two days before the verdict in that case. Angel Rabasa, the author of Political Islam in Southeast Asia joins Neal to discuss what is known about today's bombing.
