With confirmation that American spies are working in New Zealand, by a former head of the US National Security Agency last night, there is confirmation that they are based here, says New Zealand First.

"This proves whistle-blower Edward Snowden right again," says New Zealand First Leader Rt Hon Winston Peters. "Mr Snowden said, while he was in New Zealand, that there were NSA facilities here, and I confirmed that I knew the location of one base.

"Of course, a certain faction of the commentators typically poured scorn on this confirming the old English adage, ‘the malady of the ignorant is to be ignorant without knowing it’.

"However, on TV3’s 3rd Degree last night former deputy director of the NSA, Chris Inglis, confirmed NSA spies connection in New Zealand.

"Logically, they must be based somewhere, but there are reasons why there is no street address listed on the internet, or on your GPS. And, former heads of NSA are not going to give the game away.

"On the same programme, General Michael Hayden, former director of the NSA and CIA, might as well have said ‘yes’ when asked if there were bases on New Zealand soil.

"Instead he claimed that would give ‘an expansive meaning’ to the word ‘base’, and added he would not say more on operational matters."
