Was Obama's mosque Sunni or Shia?

Reader comment on item: Obama's Muslim Childhood

I have not been able to find out whether Obama's mosque in Jakarta was Sunni or Shia and was hoping the author could help out. Indonesia is 99% Sunni but in that one city about 8-9% of the population is Shia.

Obama's actions in office have seemed to greatly benefit Iran which is Shia so I was wondering if his "mosque identity" might be an interesting data point.
