Assume all mayor cryptotools are exploited. Sad but true. Any other reason
people complain OpenSSL is written in tongues (so to speak)? Hiding
exploits is easier in a mess.

That said the people in the IETS might be ignorant to the fact that TLS is
likely backdoor'ed. The thing with this problem is that there's many
layers. Mike Belshe is probably not dual-role, just doing the best he can
is enough.

False security is a danger unlike many others. None of us should forget
that.
