ASIO reacts to Cabinetgate
The ABC report that they have received a classified cabinet brought from a second hand dealer by persons unamed and that the cabinet contained classified documents from the Prime Ministers Office of at least five governments.
ASIO reacts and moves to secure classified cabinet files held in ABC offices in early morning operation
ABC says Decision to publish ‘in national interest’. No!
Publishing the fact that the filing cabinet filled with classified papers was sold is in the interests of the national interest. Publishing what the papers actually were and what they were about is not.
But then the ABC don’t have a track record of acting in the ‘national interest’ rather they act in the interests of anyone or anything that denigrates conservative side of politics
The ABC then exacerbates the security leak by reporting;
Hundreds of top-secret and highly classified cabinet documents have been obtained by the ABC. Now they’re yours to explore.
and provide links!
Hey, the documents are, in your own words, Top Secret and highly classified. It’s in the ‘national interest’ for you to give them over to the authorities’
Not publish the bloody details.
