Have a read of this one about the visit of Anna Nicole Smith to the Bahamas:
Other leaked cables released by WikiLeaks and published by the Guardian dealt with Anna Nicole Smith in the Bahamas.
She may have been just a “B-list celebrity”, but she hit the Bahamas like a hurricane, spreading scandals that toppled a string of officials and endangered the whole Government, the cables said.
The Government fell two months after the last cable was written.
“Not since Category 4 Hurricane Betsy made landfall in 1965 has one woman done as much damage in Nassau,” reads a colourful November 2006 document, apparently written by Deputy Chief of Mission D. Brent Hardt.
“Lying in disarray in her wake are Doctor’s Hospital, the Coroner’s Court, the Department of Immigration, local mega-lawyers Callenders and Co, formerly popular Minister of Immigration Shane Gibson, and possibly Prime Minister [Perry] Christie’s PLP government,” the diplomat added.
The cables described how Smith’s remarkably rapid success in gaining permanent residency led to the ouster of Gibson while the alleged bungling of her son’s treatment and death cut short the careers of several lesser officials while energising the political opposition and the press.
What a pity she never visited New Zealand before she died!Tags: Wikileaks
