Leaks In Our Official Comms-Wikileaks?

You guys can have your field day debating for or against the Wikileak report on a certain accused person, but what concerns me is the supposed "intercepted communications" that allowed an assessment to be made on the technical interception as alleged in this source article from the Sydney Morning Herald itself, as pointed out by a forumer in my military forum.
The document states the Singaporeans told ONA they made this assessment on the basis of ''technical intelligence'', which is likely to relate to intercepted communications.
I am interested to know which communication vehicle(s) that is so leaky that some other nation can make a good judgement call based I believe on a fair amount of data, as even their Senior Minister himself could commit to making a statement on this, somebody who is known not to tolerate nonsense.
'The Australians said that Singapore's intelligences services and [Singaporean elder statesman] Lee Kuan Yew have told ONA in their exchanges that opposition leader Anwar 'did indeed commit the acts for which he is currently indicted'.''
So can somebody identify where the leaks are coming from instead of concentrating on the sensationalism, as this really involves national security as we do not know how much more critical intelligence has been leaked to the others.



Intercepted communication is nothing new, I believe we also intercept other country's communication as well. This 'leak' can also be planned as disinformation campaign by our intelligence as certain accused person want us to believe. Its impossible to get 100% leak free comms as wiki has demonstrated. Let just pray that the leak is manageable lah..

To what end. If it was the RMP, kudos to them as they managed to make the OZ PM then to give the guy the cold shoulder during his visit.

But if the PKR PR guy is to be believed, it was the SG's disinformation campaign and this has got me scratching my head.....

What if his handlers feel he is not worth the effort of promoting any more and decided to give him up? What if in spite of the fire-fighting he had to do to explain his out of control enthusiasm of playing the gallery in his condemnation of the 'chosen people, they figured this 'sayam' had served his useful purpose and should be fed to the dogs? So let the leaders of his oft-visited nation to let slip this juicy bit and he's history.
