WTF? Clearly it is Mueller who doesn't get things.

This is like the logic behind banning exports of crypto, where the underlying assumption is that only Americans are smart enough to create strong crypto. Anyone who actually *IS* smart knows that smart is not related to geography, race, religion, or culture.
