I am sorry, but they used AK-47's and not U.S. weapons, at least in the initial assault, to avoid offending American sensibilities. That's all it takes to please a politician. The U.S. is more directly responsible for handing over Irian Jaya to the Javanese in order to cover up special operations supporting anti-Sukarno rebels in Sumatera. In order to win the release of a CIA radio operator captured by the Indonesian military, the U.S., acting as a U.N. sponsored election judge in determining the fate of the Irian people decided against the popular vote for independence or union with Papua New Guinea and supported the decision of a "Council of Elders" that Irian should belong to Indonesia.
