The Wikileaks US Secretary of State to US Emabassies in Nigeria Cables



After a lot of DOS attacks, server shutdowns and Interpol warrants, Wikileaks continues to run. Earlier last week, we found the wikileaks cable from Hilary Clinton to US Embassies accross the West African Region. Basically the US just wants to know everything about everybody sha. The document asks for Military formations, illegal drug trade routes, military factions, tribal factions, possibility of a coup, e.t.c

Our government(of course) hasn't responded to this yet. This proves that wikileaks has got 'spies' in our military and government offices. Because of this I take back my statement that Perez Hilton is the world's biggest amebo. No, it's the U.S Government! Read More about Wikileaks here.

SUBJECT: (S) REPORTING AND COLLECTION NEEDS: WEST AFRICA 
SAHEL REGION 
 
REF: A. 08 STATE 124337 
     B. 04 STATE 179667 
 
Classified By: CATHERINE BROWN, DAS IPC.  REASON: 1.4(C). 
 
 1. (S/NF) This cable provides the full text of the new 
National HUMINT Collection Directive (NHCD) on the West 
Africa Sahel region (paragraph 3-end) as well as a request 
for continued DOS reporting of biographic information 
relating to the West Africa Sahel region (paragraph 2). 
 
A. (S/NF) The NHCD below supercedes the NHCD contained in Ref 
B and reflects the results of a recent Washington review of 
reporting and collection needs focused on the West Africa 
Sahel region (Ref A).  The review produced a comprehensive 
list of strategic priorities (paragraph 3) and reporting and 
collection needs (paragraph 4) intended to guide 
participating USG agencies as they allocate resources and 
update plans to collect information on the West Africa Sahel 
region.  The priorities should also serve as a useful tool to 
help the Embassy manage reporting and collection, including 
formulation of Mission Strategic Plans (MSPs). 
 
B. (S/NF) This NHCD is compliant with the National 
Intelligence Priorities Framework (NIPF), which was 
established in response to NSPD-26 of February 24, 2003.  If 
needed, GRPO can provide further background on the NIPF and 
the use of NIPF abbreviations (shown in parentheses following 
each sub-issue below) in NHCDs. 
 
C. (S/NF) Important information often is available to 
non-State members of the Country Team whose agencies 
participated in the review of this National HUMINT Collection 
Directive.  COMs, DCMs, and State reporting officers can 
assist by coordinating with other Country Team members to 
encourage relevant reporting through their own or State 
Department channels. 
 
2. (S/NF) State biographic reporting: 
 
A. (S/NF) The intelligence community relies on State 
reporting officers for much of the biographical information 
collected worldwide.  Informal biographic reporting via email 
and other means is vital to the community's collection 
efforts and can be sent to the INR/B (Biographic) office for 
dissemination to the IC. 
 
B. (S/NF) Reporting officers should include as much of the 
following information as possible when they have information 
relating to persons linked to the West Africa Sahel region: 
office and organizational titles; names, position titles and 
other information on business cards; numbers of telephones, 
cell phones, pagers and faxes; compendia of contact 
information, such as telephone directories (in compact disc 
or electronic format if available) and e-mail listings; 
internet and intranet "handles", internet e-mail addresses, 
web site identification-URLs; credit card account numbers; 
frequent flyer account numbers; work schedules, and other 
relevant biographical information. 
 
3. (S/NF) Priority issues and issues outline: 
 
This directive covers eight countries of Sahelian West 
Africa: Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Chad, The Gambia, Mali, 
Mauritania, Niger, and Senegal.  The coastal countries to the 
south (Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Cote 
d'Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, and Benin) are covered separately in 
the West Africa Littoral directive.
