Only America gets to have backdoors

from here

I may be dating myself here, but back in the day Oracle tried to market their software as "unbreakable". I don't think I need to tell you how that worked out for them. Now they're going to be looking for problems in someone else's code - good luck with that. Hopefully it works out better this time.

Of course the aim is to prevent Chinese backdoors, and this was all prompted by a government that keeps trying to add backdoors to things (they're obsessed with the back door, it seems). It all seems very self-serving, to be honest.
