NZ Plugs Into Secret Pentagon Intranet

A leaked American study into military actions in Afghanistan reveals New Zealand is now plugged into the world’s most secret intranet, allowing access to the Pentagon’s battle plans.

“Secret Internet Protocol Router Network”, or SIPRNET, is a sophisticated alternative to the internet, allowing New Zealand frigate control rooms and armoured vehicles access to material seen on generals’ desks in Washington.

Defence Minister Wayne Mapp refused to comment on the link. “We don’t discuss security matters,” he said through a spokesman.
