It's such a SNAFU that the apologies are flying. Here's a link to the Herald article where John Key apologises to Kim Dotcom, and here's a quote taken directly from the article:
"Of course I apologise to Mr Dotcom, and I apologise to New Zealanders."I've added emphasis to the quote because I am a New Zealander, the apology is in part to me and it leads me to a very important question - where does the buck stop?
The PM's role, because the PM is almost without exception responsible for oversight of national security, is to ensure proper oversight. It's time to stop blaming the staff, the police and the spooks. It's time for a resignation.
