cisco is not very clear if some of its deliveries are intercepted by the NSA to be bugged

In a blog post published last week, Cisco executive Mark Chandler said the company regularly complies with government regulations regarding the export of its computer equipment to customers overseas, but denounced the claim that the government “took steps to compromise IT products enroute [sic] to customers.”


“We ought to be able to count on the government to…not interfere with the lawful delivery of our products in the form in which we have manufactured them,” Chandler wrote. “To do otherwise, and to violate legitimate privacy rights of individuals and institutions around the world, undermines confidence in our industry.”


Chandler didn’t say if the company knew of the NSA interdiction program, nor did the executive acknowledge if Cisco participated in the interception of packages delivered to certain customers.
