Government/ASIO PR stunt?

Was yesterday’s filming of terrorist hotspots at ASIO HQ just a government stunt to expand it’s “rule by fear” agenda?

Having worked at top secret level, I can’t see that ASIO would agree to it, despite what PM Abbott said in Parliament today.

Seriously, who would allow filming of classified maps inside our spy-catching organisation? ASIO, that’s who. But of course now it’s revealed the maps weren’t classified.

I now seriously question the judgement of ASIO boss, ex-SASR commander Duncan Lewis, who allowed this to happen.
