The Wellington Cables

Nicky Hager, in London, has helped the Sunday Star Times obtain some of the 1500 Cablegate documents that refer specifically to New Zealand. Their contents are largely unsurprising -- but shouldn't we have known that our collaboration with US intelligence agencies was "fully restored" in August 2009? Why did both governments consciously keep the news quiet?

The eight cables released today are here in a single PDF, or separated into single documents here.

Bear in mind: Simon Lyall has already noted that:

08WELLINGTON356 explicitly names the “Deputy Director of New Zealand Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS)” which is illegal as explained by the Ministry of Justice site.
