Russel Norman blogged how he is down to protest against the Waihopai Listening Base, because shock horror it shares info with our friends and allies.

This is where the Greens have more in common with their pink leanings than anything to do with the environment.

In the post 9/11 environment, if there’s one thing I want us and our allies to do, it is to intercept telecommunications between terrorists. Even if you think Bush is the biggest doofus on earth and the US should pull out of the Middle East, you should be keen to have us contribute to intercept terrorist plots.

Scores and scores of plots have been defeated thanks to interceptions. The number of lives saved would be in the thousands. I want the spy satellites listening in to Al Qaeda cells etc. It save’s lives.
