Dear New Zealand Security Intelligence Service,

Thank you for your email. What I am looking for is analyses, reports, cables, and briefings. I am interested in "other documents" only to the extent that they are of that same nature - that is, documents that would present analysis or conclusions. If analyses, reports, briefings, and cables exhausts such documents, then there is no need to worry about "other documents".

Yours faithfully,

David Lindsey
