Re: Right ... but perhaps for the wrong reasons

For the vast majority of commercial customers and 100% of retail customers, having eg GCHQ check out the kit is a perfectly acceptable safeguard, indeed one which they do not even get from other vendors' kit (eg Cisco) which might be backdoored with other countries' spying malware.

In the case of Cisco, there is no "might be" involved, the backdoor (placed by the NSA) was found, so American stuff is right out as far as I am concerned.
