Dear Australian Signals Directorate,

I am writing to enquire whether you had any information on any law enforcement agents that congregated outside my garage on level 2, 237 Wellington Road, East Brisbane, QLD, 4169, in the early hours of the 1st of July. Was I almost raided? if so, why, and why not?

Yours faithfully,

Adrian Michael Dormer

Dear ASD Assist,

I wrote the NSA, citing their FOI laws. The NSA wrote me a 2 page report, thoughtfully addressing my request. I'm an Australian citizen, and they spent time describing WHY I was refused. You guys are my patriots, and your response is just insulting.

NSA 1: ASD: 0 (public relations score)

Yours sincerely,

Adrian Dormer
