A Pentagon report has found that a multibillion-dollar Chinese telecommunications company that has been seeking to make major inroads in the U.S. market has close ties to China's military, despite the company’s denials.
At issue for Huawei is widespread concern among U.S. military and intelligence agencies that Huawei’s switches, chips and firmware contain “back doors” that can give China's military the equivalent of listening posts all over the U.S. telecommunications infrastructure.

Wow, really, wow. Impressive zen-like use of skillful rhetoric, my good man. Bravo! (So much for one-liners!)
Apparently, no one cares that their cell phone may be a spy device for a massively totalitarian and brutal regime, not even the U.S.A. But that's okay, just take your pills and drink your koolaide. Sigh*edit on 16-12-2011 by lowundertheradar because: (no reason given)

Well not sure what you want anyone to say. I read the report, and it sounds like it could either be true, or there is some other political motivation going on- and probably to do with price undercutting that would cause a major loss in profits for the establishment (AT&T, Verizon, etc.) if this company was let in. Wouldn't be the first time this happened.
