More on Operation Leaf
Speaking of which:
An investigative journalist involved in the story today said he was under strict instructions not to comment on the matter.Nicky is at best a freelancer and there's nobody in the world who could issue him strict instructions. Hence it's apparent he is severely embarrassed at being made to look a fool.
"I'm not allowed to talk on that, sorry," Nicky Hager told NZPA, when asked for a comment on the report.
Lastly one of the three sources has issued a statement. It's self-serving drivel about himself to the extent that he claims to have been a CIA agent on the grounds that he was a "liason person" (ie somebody he had a drink with from time to time) to a US embassy official. Yet in all his rambling, he forgets to provide any information to show that the report was a whitewash.
