At the LinuxCon meeting in New Orleans, Linus Torvalds was asked if he had ever been approached by the US government to insert a backdoor into the Linux kernel. Here's his characteristic answer: Torvalds responded "no" while shaking his head "yes," as the audience broke into spontaneous laughter. Obviously, it's hard to tell from that whether he really meant "yes" or "no".
