Selwyn Manning - Cables Reveal How Very Close US/NZ Intel Is

Radio Adelaide: Selwyn Manning & Peter Godfrey – Cables Show USA/NZ Intelligence Relationship Very Close

  • Radio Adelaide Audio:

    Scoop's Selwyn Manning and Radio Adelaide's Peter Godfrey deliver the New Zealand news update, including how the Wikileaks cables between the United States' New Zealand-based Embassy and Washington show how very very close the intelligence relationship is – including an agreement where New Zealand sends intel to the US on Kiwis and others it considers as having terrorist sympathies.

    Also, the cables reveal how New Zealand's diplomat reports were to be sent to US intelligence after a High Commission visit to North Korea – and how NZ SIGINT efforts spying on Fiji leading up to the 2006 coup were “helpful” to the US's analysis of the crisis.
