So, it turns out that the GCSB can't even source a PDF correctly:

the government decided to set up a special website for the New Zealand Intelligence Community, which includes the GCSB and the Security Intelligence Service, among others. To better inform citizens - and presumably to confirm or win their trust - they included a copy of their proposed legislation.

For some bizarre reason, the spies bypassed the copy on Parliament's website and the copies mass-distributed by the Prime Minister's office to take the copy uploaded by Mr Manning to The Daily Blog.

Still, I suppose it exposes their underlying mindset: steal data from the web.

But seriously, if they can't even set up a website properly, how are we supposed to believe that they will protect our privacy and obey the law properly? These people are muppets, and we shouldn't trust them to tie their own shoelaces, let alone with our privacy and human rights.
