Speaks for itself

From their strategic communications plan, the New Zealand intelligence community's view of who their stakeholders are:


Yes, the public - the people they ultimately work for and supposedly protect - are near the bottom of the list, below even "international partners" (their foreign bosses). Still, at least we appear on that list; the similar one in their NZIC Communications Strategy 2014-2017 [same file, p. 13] doesn't even list us at all.

I think this speaks for itself about who "our" spies think they work for, and whose views they care about.
