    hmm, so what did the NSA do all that time they were evaluating Linux?
    They obviously didn't catch a bunch of buffer overflows etc. Do they
    catch much of anything in the rest of the operating systems they look
    at? Thing is commercial software that is also used in DoD is developed
    by overseas coders too. Heck, we have foreign nationals writing code
    while living here in the US of A. So where does it stop? Is DoD
    software only to be written by uniformed personnel who have undergone
    an exhaustive background check, have no foreign contacts and so forth?
    I'd hate to see the quality (or even quantity) of software that was
    put into such constraints.
