    Any hardware purchase by gvt agencies becomes suspect. There can be collusion between say Intel and NSA and no one will ever know what's screwing them.

    Hats off to the foresight, ideas, capabilities of the US. Others can only whine out of jealousy :(

    It would be surprising to me if they don't have a collaboration.
    It had long been rumored that NSA had backdoors to encryption technologies and recently it was proved that RSA provided NSA with backdoors in the security softwares that it sold to its customers.

    Scary for govt now they have to put all the sensative computers into metal net enclosers so that no wave can go or come out.
    One such thing was shown in the movie enemy of the state.
