In other news, the National Security Agency knew about the Heartbleed bug for at least two years, while they used it for hacking. Once the news broke regarding the bug and patches were forthcoming, however, the NSA knew the gig was up and they might as well have DHS issue its “oh by the way” warning. Unfortunately, in the intervening two years, the agency whose mission is ostensibly to keep the American people safe left everyone wide open to hacking by those even more malicious than Big Government.

That would be debatable, only because defining "Big Government" would and is hard to agreeably define.
