Heading overseas?
I think there are quite a few of those 'tampered with' routers sitting in equipment racks in the US and on bookshelves/entertainment centers in our homes. Who are they kidding? (and with that comment, I assume the back door in my device was just activated!)

Re: Stealng for freedom?
Good point, the end does not justify the means; credibility and trust cannot be discounted. It seems in the world's second oldest profession anything goes. However they have cover. Not to get too convoluted here, but isn't there also the possibility that the documents being released are fake since Snowden is now being manipulated by the Kremlin?

I am sure there is the IT equivalent of an arms race right now, because the first viable quantum computer is likely to be able to crack all the encryption protocols, notwithstanding the fact that quantum encryption itself is uncrackable; the uhderlying data disappearing in a puff of logic. Ah, the beauty!

Stealng for freedom?
Based on the last statement in the story by Michael Hayden, ex-CIA director, "We steal for freedom, they don't," I would say it would be wise to base the preservation of freedom on something other than stealing.

Re: Somewhere...
Is any network equipment still made and assembled in the U.S.? I thought it had all gone overseas already.
