Not from sales in the US but from sensitive security related networks such as in US embassies.

I agree with the article.

Isn't The Inquirer a notorious tabloid?

I think the Enquirer is the tabloid, and the Inquirer is something else.

The link is to a well known British Computer and technology news site. Not the same as the gossip rag.

Protectionism is not really a new concept... :deal:

And by officially spreading the fairy tale of "Chinese trojans" private American households won't by them as well. Psychological warfare, nothing more.

Well, I can kinda see how theyd be worried, but I think the Chinese wouldn't do something like that.

The key word: MAY. They MAY have, but they probably didn't. I think it's just a bit of paranoia.

The point made in the article and what I agree with was that if China wanted to implant trojans or spyware in a US goverment PC it could have done so at any time before now.

And so what if they did? Im sure a competent US goverment PC technology engineer can remove the offending software.
