The GPL clearly doesn't allow that, it says that whenever the binaries are distributed, the source must be distributed with them or made available as well.
That's not actually true - a written offer to provide the source that meets certain criteria is also acceptable. Not that this really changes anything about this case, of course, but it's a myth that should be buried along with other myths such as "you can't charge money for GPL'ed software" and so on.
