The gift that keeps on giving

There's been another Whaledump this afternoon, this time of Facebook messages with Aaron Bhatnagar. As expected, it confirms everything alleged in Dirty Politics. Unfortunately, in addition to this public interest material, it also includes a vast amount of material of no public interest at all, or where there are significant privacy interests, so I won't be linking to the raw material.

And in related news, the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security has opened an investigation into whether the SIS violated political neutrality in its handling of an OIA from Cameron Slater, and whether the material was properly declassified. It'll be interesting to see what comes of that.
