For years, the US government loudly warned the world that Chinese routers and other internet devices pose a "threat" because they are built with backdoor surveillance functionality that gives the Chinese government the ability to spy on anyone using them. Yet what the NSA's documents show is that Americans have been engaged in precisely the activity that the US accused the Chinese of doing.

What surprises me the most is that there are still people who are surprised by this.

Maybe it's also about the "don't buy those guys stuff, it's unsafe and they spy on you. Buy our stuff so that we can spy on you" thing.
