CALEA and intercept internet traffic in Indonesia

I've just read about CALEA (Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act) issue in nanog mailing-list. Basically ISP must have capability to intercept internet traffic/voip of their customers. More information can be read in :

Related with CALEA, probably you ever heard about this rumor before. This rumor I have heard about one year ago, the source is Singaporean. If you're using Indonesia ISP and the ISP is using Singapore ISP/telco as an upstream (you know who), and if there is any suspicious word like bomb/jihad, your data will be sent to the US. This should related as many Indonesian terorist activity using Internet as a main communication.
It's a rumor, don't know it's true or hoax :-)
