Evening Report (episode 2): Live Video Tonight at 8pm – We will be digging into the fallout of New Zealand GCSB operations targeting South East Asia countries, as exposed in the New Zealand Herald today by Nicky Hager and Ryan Gallagher.
36th Parallel Assessments founder Dr Paul Buchanan has confirmed availability and will examine the intelligence aspects, and, consider the national interest implications. What are the solutions should New Zealand need to clean up this geopolitical mess? We also hope to have Oliver Woods on (tbc), a Kiwi who is very knowledgeable on technology and such things and is based in South East Asia.
