It just gets worse and worse…
American intelligence officers knew a new contagion was sweeping Wuhan in November but they couldn’t get the message through to the top, according to ABC News.
…as TDB has been pointing out for 3 weeks now, the US Intelligence agencies KNEW the Chinese were lying about the true nature of the pandemic and were warning the US Government well before Trump got around to doing anything.
This raises incredibly pertinent questions within our own Intelligence Community in NZ, and while Fairfax Journalists have asked some questions, they haven’t received any real answers.
New Zealand is part of the 5 Eyes mass surveillance mafia and as such would have been briefed as an ally that China was lying about the pandemic. Seeing as our Spy base spies on Chinese satellites, it’s possible we were helping gather this information so questions must be answered.
Did any NZ Intelligence Agency or Board – the SIS (Secret Intelligence Services), the GCSB (Government Communications Security Bureau), the NSG (National Security Group), the CNSN (Cabinet National Security Committee), the ODESC (Officials’ Committee for Domestic and External Security Coordination), the SIB (Security and Intelligence Board), the CTCC (Counter-Terrorism Coordinating Committee), the NICC ( National Intelligence Coordination Committee) the IAD (Intelligence and Assessments Directorate), the NRU (National Risk Unit) or the NSPD (National Security Policy Directorate) – gain intelligence that the pandemic erupting out of China posed a risk to NZ.
If none of our intelligence agencies or boards were aware, why weren’t they aware?
If our intelligence agencies or boards were aware, who within the Civilian Government was advised, when were they advised and what were they advised?
The US Intelligence Agencies knew a pandemic was coming in November, we are part of that Intelligence alliance, did our Intelligence apparatus know, what did they know and when did they tell the Government?
Could we have been tipped off earlier?
Could a lockdown have been avoided?
These are all very crucial questions now and with the second wave of this tsunami being the economic carnage, we need answers.
If our Intelligence agencies didn’t know a pandemic was coming, why not and if they did know, why weren’t they listened to earlier?
This must be an issue the Journalists start focusing on now.
