Of Course

Rather than trying to find out why the GCSB spied on people illegally, the government will change the law so the GCSB's activities are no longer illegal.

Evidently there's something unclear about:

Restrictions imposed on interceptions

14Interceptions not to target domestic communications
  • Neither the Director, nor an employee of the Bureau, nor a person acting on behalf of the Bureau may authorise or take any action for the purpose of intercepting the communications of a person (not being a foreign organisation or a foreign person) who is a New Zealand citizen or a permanent resident.

But is it necessary to allow the GCSB the power to intercept and read our various communications?  Yes, of course it is.  Otherwise, how will Judith Collins know which of our children's cellphones to confiscate?
