       Seriously, I’m sure it will be if it isn’t already.

      Also, I’d love to see a similar outing of all the U.S./European companies that supply these guys with military/police equipment.  F/e that U.S. company that supplied Mubarak with tear gas/weapons etc.

    It seems reasonable that their rent for being allowed to operate in a country is to supply the local spooks with their software or the product of that software (if the spooks wish to remain at arms length)

    Funny how RIM caved to Saudi Arabia, allowing the government to read all encrypted BlackBerry traffic, and yet… some people think that the difference between RIM and FinFisher is like the difference between white and black. And somehow RIM and Time Magazine somehow think that critics of RIM are idiots.

    I may be an idiot, but this isn’t the reason why.
