Re: Weird True, but we're reporting the investigation, so we do owe them right of reply. And, of course, they can't/won't say much given the stakes, but we will always ask.

Re: Weird Huawei's reply is NOT needed. Are they buying components from US vendors and selling the telecom gear/phones to IRAN? If yes, than they are in violation of US sanctions policy. You can defend Chinese vendors, but truth needs to come out.

Re: Weird I included the quote because I did find it both fascinating and really far-reaching. As ever with this sort of thing, American companies can be guilty of all the things he's listed, but they'll get a pass.

Also, a programming note: I updated the story with a reply from Huawei.

Weird "equipment [that] can allow hostile foreign powers to inject viruses and other malware, steal Americans' private data, spy on US businesses, and more" -- I don't know the context of this quote from Chairman Pai, but on the surface it seems a bit wonky. Inject viruses? Is that how the Intertubes gets infected? The steal Americans' private data point is also odd, given the whole Facebook thing. It's almost like he isn't even trying to come up with reasons.
