Linux "Lightweight Portable Security (LPS), created by USA's Department of Defense, is a small Linux live CD focusing on privacy and security, for this reason, it boots from a CD and executes from RAM, providing a web browser, a file manager and some interesing tools. LPS-Public turns an untrusted system into a trusted network client." Complete with backdoor so they can spy on all of us I'm sure!1!!

Wow, "encryption tool" screenshot is the most funniest and hilarious thing I've seen by far in this US DoD context, really.
USA would *never* allow their services or citizens to encrypt files with unbreakable algorithm. Instead, they provide them with tool that they can control, with the cipher they can decrypt ... what a coincident!
Also, IIRC, USA has some serious "export of cryptography" issuess, which also proves it right, eh?

USA as a whole has a very unique ability to make me laugh almost everytime I read about it or hear some rediculous news regarding USA.
